Week 8: The MBTI Results are IN!

In today’s class we introduced the personality attributes based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). The MBTI assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological type (described by Carl Jung) and how people perceive the world and make decisions.

In learning about the psychological types and preferences, we have gotten and idea of where preferences lie for the energizing preferences extroversion (E) and introversion (I), the attending preferences are sensing (S) and intuition (N), the deciding preferences are thinking (T) and feeling (F) and the living preferences are judgment (J) and perception (P). We have also started the conversation on how MBTI types exhibit particular strengths and weaknesses in the workplace environments. This conversation will continue, so please hang onto YOUR MBTI Assessment report for future class use, and to share your thoughts on your WP Post #7 in 200 words minimum blog post DUE by 11 pm TONIGHT (10/15) answer the following questions:

  • Did you guess your MBTI 4-letter combination?
  • What do you think about your MBTI report & results? (p.3)
  • Are any of your letters “Very Clear” or are you just “Slight”? Share your scale results. (p.3)
  • Do you agree/disagree with your preferred work tasks & work environment? (p.4)
  • Describe what you think about in the Career Report of your  MBTI:  “challenges” (p.5-6), Ranking of Job Families (p. 8), Most Popular Occupations (p. 9) & Least Popular Occupations (p. 10)
