FOR THOSE WHO ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE MBTI®
What is it?
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is based on the theory of Carl Gustav Jung’s psychological types and developed over many years into practical and well researched use by a mother and daughter team, Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers.
It is now used worldwide and has b been translated into a
number of different languages.
By understanding and valuing differences between types, individually and in a group setting, we come to appreciate what each can bring. There are many applications of the MBTI®: it is first and foremost a tool of self-development and awareness, as it can take us into what Jung described as the “shadow-side of the personality”.
Excellent for team-building, coaching, leadership, change and stress, communication and in conflict resolution.
Essential to the MBTI® is that it is CONFIDENTIAL TO THE PERSON.
Sharing with another calls for the express and un-pressured permission of the person concerned. It is not a tool for selection (an unethical use of the Indicator).
It is simply a way to look at a person’s “preferred” way of looking at the world, collecting information and making decisions and to value that others do these differently.
Ann O’Sullivan offers a basic introduction to the MBTI® on a 1-1 basis, with sessions lasting 1 to 2 hours and include materials.
Workshops can be tailored to meet the needs of specific groups/organisations/teams.
