Welcome to Personality Type @ Work!

Welcome to Personality Type @ Work! | Personality Type @ Work | Scoop.it

As a long-time practitioner of the MBTI, and having written interpretive reports for the assessment (available in easy-to-use software packages), I decided to bring to you all the best information I could find about using/interpreting the MBTI at work and at home.


I'm particularly interested in bringing you material that is very useful, and is based on darn good research. Or that brings to light interesting applications for the MBTI.  Or that helps us navigate our worlds better because of the insights the MBTI can provide us.


I hope you enjoy the content I curate! Please leave comments, contact me with ideas, or share with me your content so I can highlight it here. 


Thank you!

Hi Karen, Thanks for this topic - I know it will grow to be extremely valuable. I'm an MBTI step 1 and 2 practionner too and use the tool as well as Facet 5 and the Bar-On Eqi inventory extensively in my coaching and team development practice.

I wish you every success!
Karen Dietz's comment, March 9, 2012 1:37 PM
Thanks Richard! I'm experimenting here and not even reviewing articles yet. Just trying to get a feel for what's out there on the MBTI. Seems most articles are about the E/I scale. We'll see how it all turns out! So stay tuned.... :)

Whole Type -- What it is and why we need it | Personality Type @ Work | Scoop.it

There is more to understanding each type than the whole type or the separate letters of the type codes. Using a multiple lens approach allows us to better understand each of the personality types and use more holistic language. 

Karen Dietz's insight:

Personality type expert Linda Berens has written a great blog post on the best way to understand the 16 Jungian personality types, and what to pay attention to.


This is great stuff and we need more practitioners to follow Linda's lead.

It pays to know who is the type you are talking with.

Can save you a lot of misunderstanding due to lack in communication.

Art Jones's curator insight, November 2, 2014 9:36 PM

Understanding TYPE is analogous to understanding your personal story of temperament  (why we do the things we do and how we get those things done).


What's your TYPE  story?

Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Take Risks

Leadership Courage: Creating A Culture Where People Take Risks | Personality Type @ Work | Scoop.it
The human ingenuity within any organisation are it's greatest competitive advantage. Yet according to the latest statistics, over half of todays workers are disengaged . When leaders are committed and actively working to engage, inspire and embolden – they unleash untapped potential and raise the bar not just on productivity, but on the value their organization contributes to all stakeholders.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Karen Dietz's insight:

The infographic above says it all -- beyond the numbers, this is the work of leaders. I include entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and any company with a social cause bent on changing the world into this category. The article by Margie Warrell does a great job explaining what each of these 3 activities are and why they are important.


Now here's my 2 cents: one of the most powerful and efficient ways to get all 3 done is through effective storytelling. Want to succeed as a leader? Want to make a difference? Want to change the world/your company? Master storytelling skills.


Enjoy this post and many thanks to fellow curator Dr. Susan Bainbridge for originally finding and sharing this article in her Transformational Leadership curation.

The future need innovators and the present needs innovative teachers to nurture them.   Creativity and the ability to innovate are natural characteristics but they must be built up and encouraged in our students, colleagues, and selves.


IteratED is committed to bringing out and nurturing the best in all of our faculty and students. We understand that this requires greater autonomy to make decisions and more trust in the natural ability to learn through exploration.


Are you a teacher who wants to reach for your highest potential? We are here to help you get there. Contact IteratED for more information on how together we can provide exceptional 21st-century education.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:40 PM

"...Human ingenuity within any organization is it's greatest competitive advantage". This quote alone made me scoop this resource. How do we tap into the resource that is our staff? Engaging with them in the classroom and in the hallways to build communication capacity is important. Inspiring staff to take risks is a tricky enterprise - leaders must value this sort of behavior. This means that attempts which result in failure must be cherished, not scrutinized as they often tend to be.
