The Power of The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

And How It Could Make Your Organization More Successful

One of the most exciting developments in business comes with the surprise discovery that a work force with conflicting personalities can work together to produce profitable results. To accomplish a common objective and achieve success, it depends on your ability to recognize and guide the diverse temperaments of your team. Now, through the powerful management technique developed by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) you can master this important skill of personality evaluation and put it into practice.

MBTI was developed by Isabel Myers and her mother Katharine Cook Briggs in the 1940s. It has become a major tool to identify personality traits throughout business and social organizations.

Priority Learning uses an updated version of MBTI, called Step II, to determine how a person makes decisions that influence their personal and professional life. The process identifies four sets of comparisons – Extravert or Introvert; Sensing or Intuition; Thinking or Feelings; Judging or Perceiving. These four characteristics expand into sixteen personality types.

Can you recognize any of these 16 types in your team?

  • The Designer – has plans for everything
  • The Academic – innovator, seeks knowledge
  • The Leader – strong willed, finds a way
  • The Orator – loves an intellectual challenge
  • The Promoter – dreams up ideas and inspires others
  • The Arbitrator – fair and eager to help
  • The Champion – charismatic and motivating
  • The Crusader – imaginative and gregarious
  • The Analyst – practical and loves facts
  • The Guardian – dedicated and protective
  • The Supervisor – great administrator and manager
  • The Ambassador – popular and social
  • The Expert – pragmatic and clever
  • The Pioneer – charming and flexible
  • The Promoter – high energy and perceptive
  • The Performer – enthusiastic and lively

At first glance, it may seem that people with such diverse personalities would cause friction and become counter-productive. But, when you recognize these traits in yourself and your work force, you can orchestrate these talents to make smarter decision, organize your time, solve problems and resolve personality differences.

As a certified MBTI trainer, for the last 22 years Priority Learning has help organization identify these revealing personality strengths. With these insights you will improved communications and achieve the team’s goals.


How the MBTI Training Process Works

With this information, each person can adapt to a working style that is most productive. It also builds team spirit and produces a healthy, supportive work environment.

In addition to improving the culture within the organization, relationships with customers and vendors benefit as a result of an awareness that personality types exist everywhere.
