What is Myers Briggs?


The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an internationally recogized psychological tool based on decades of research wich identifies the different ways how people interact with the world around them. It offers a fresh lens through which to understand and develop the way people gather information and come to decisions.

The Myers Briggs model of personality is based on four preferences:

1. Where, primarily, do you prefer to direct your energy?
    If you prefer to direct your energy to deal with people, things, situations, or "the outer world", then your
    preference is for Extraversion
    If you prefer to direct your energy to deal with ideas, information, explanations or beliefs, or "the inner
    world", then your preference is for Introversion.  

2. How do you prefer to process information?
    If you prefer to deal with facts, what you know, to have clarity, or to describe what you see, then your
    preference is for Sensing.  
    If you prefer to deal with ideas, look into the unknown, to generate new possibilities or to anticipate what
    isn't obvious, then your preference is for Intuition

3. How do you prefer to make decisions?
    If you prefer to decide on the basis of objective logic, using an analytic and detached approach, then
    your preference is for Thinking.  
    If you prefer to decide using values and/or personal beliefs, on the basis of what you believe is important
    or what you or others care about, then your preference is for Feeling.  

4. How do you prefer to organise your life?
    If you prefer your life to be planned, stable and organised then your preference is for Judging (not to be
    confused with 'Judgmental', which is quite different).  
    If you prefer to go with the flow, to maintain flexibility and respond to things as they arise, then your
    preference is for Perception.
