INTJ? ESFP? Can you recall your MBTI ‘Type’ and are you really getting the most value out of your profile? We’d guess: probably not.
Companies spend vast amounts of money on personality profiles to invest in their employees as part of team development events, individual coaching support, training or workshops. When we receive a personality profile such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®), so many of us are astounded at how accurate it appears to be. We are wowed by the insight it provides us with, particularly in how we relate and communicate with others personally and professionally. Yet what do we actually then do with this valuable information?
MBTI® is a typical example of a popular tool that is under utilised or mis-used within organisations. In our experience, we see the impact of this when many people are unable to recall their Type or what it means for them in terms of everyday life. MBTI® has several layers which, when explored, uncover a whole new depth to it’s meaning.
The four letters at first seem like a complex code that needs to be solved. Whilst it is important to get to grips with the preferences such as I, E, S, N, etc., the real power lies in understanding how the preferences within your Type interact with each other. Unfortunately, too many fail to explore this part of MBTI®, missing out on this vital development be it due to lack of desire, time or opportunity. Discovering the dynamics of MBTI® should be challenging yet fun, not to mention extremely thought provoking.
At Right Trax Training we are experienced in exploring the dynamics of the MBTI® and are delighted to work with teams and individuals to really get under the skin of it…and we are passionate about making this an enjoyable and inspiring experience for all.
