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 10:37 AM
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.... :)

We have been seeing more and more general  misunderstanding of the ‘scaffloding’ on which the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator was built; on the web and in the popular press.  I asked Peter Geyer, type author and expert on the history of the Indicator, to set the record straight on the aspects of the Indicator that are most misunderstood.
