Does it pay to know your type?

Some grandmothers pass down cameo necklaces. Katharine Cook Briggs passed down the world’s most widely used personality test. Chances are you’ve taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or will. Roughly 2 million people a year do.

Kate Richards's insight:

It's life changing knowing your personality type. You can begin to accept your weaknesses and know your strengths.

Great article from Washington Post's On Leadership about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Anne Egros's curator insight, December 15, 2012 1:48 PM

I am using another personality assessment for my coaching clients, it is called DISC and its based on the same principles than the Myers-Briggs test but with only 2 dimensions: Extrovert-Introvert and Task-People oriented, that gives 4 main types and variations inbetween.

 

The absolute results of the stest are not so important, what is useful is to bring awereness to people on their preferences and help them discover in real situations what make them  thrive or what situations are stressful.

 

People also get an idea on how to communicate with others taking into account their own communication styles and behavioral preferences.

 

I also find it is a good base to identify necessary behavioral changes to improve performance, self-comfidence or well-being.
