What's Your Preference? Understanding Different Personality Types

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) assessment tool and interpretation offers opportunities to strengthen interpersonal communication skills, leadership skills, professional appearance, and integrate an organizational, department or team vision by first identifying your personality preferences based strongly on the works of Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types.

The MBTI tool is an instrument to help you become aware of your particular style, to better understand, and appreciate the helpful ways that people differ from one another. Organizations have up to four generations of workers that will benefit from the MBTI assessment. How, you may ask? Through acquiring new knowledge about you.

  • Better understand the wonderful you
