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.
This post was coauthored by Jon Victor. As an extrovert, Karl has to learn to put on his “game face” and act like an introvert to be a better leader. Introverted leaders, too, need to act like extroverts at times for the same reason — fair enough. But some recent research from [...]

Great tips here for how to interact with different Types.
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.

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.
Extroverts aren't the most successful in the long run at work; instead, the quiet, neurotic, introverted employees who often fret about what others think of them come out on top, according to a new study.
In this infographic, you'll get an overview of the 16 types to give a sense of how these bigger-than-life personalities fit in the Myers-Briggs philosophy. The official test is based on Carl Jung’s work in psychological typology.

The common belief about personality and leadership is that strong leaders are extroverts, that they can walk into any room and immediately attract a crowd; start spewing out platitudes about the latest ice-cream flavor and sports highlights and immediately spark new friendships—and sweet tooths (I didn’t think “sweet teeth” would [...]

There are fab tips here for anyone working with people (and maybe even non-humans).
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.
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.
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.
We need to remember that the MBTI® tool describes dichotomous “either/or” preferences. It does not give us information about “how much” we are of one preference over another. Here's a little rhyme I made up to help: “type is ...
