What is MBTI & NLP?

What is the MBTI or Myers Briggs?

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Jung's theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. The results identify valuable difference between people - differences which can often be the source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.

When individuals voluntarily take the MBTI questionnaire, they receive feedback that will help them identify their unique gifts. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas for growth. It also helps you to appreciate who differ from you. Understanding your MBTI type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

MBTI is the most widely used instrument in the world for understanding normal personality types. More than 2 million questionnaires are processed annually and here we only use the official OPP Ltd questionnaire.

MBTI explains basic patterns in human functioning and is used for a wide variety of purposes including the following;

  • self-understanding & development

  • career development & exploration

  • Organisation development

  • Team building

  • Management & leadership training

  • Problem solving
