The Myers-Briggs® instrument is a simple yet highly versatile psychometric tool that helps businesses address a wide range of issues helping millions of people around the world to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and how they interact with others. Starting with a basic understanding of simple personality differences, the Myers-Briggs assessment provides a common language to easily explain the complexities of different personalities. The range of easy-to-use, insightful reports allows individuals to perfect their skills, and organisations to get the very best out of their talent. MBTI is a personality preference tool that helps you understand you. MBTI was developed by a mother and daughter: Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers back in the 1940s. It is based on the work of Carl Jung and particularly his book Psychological Types. Since then it has captured the world and is used across many diverse sectors and has been translated in over 20 different languages.
The MBTI tool can Help To:
Improve your personal effectiveness by knowing and understanding yourself and others better.
Inspire and facilitate your own and others self-awareness, personal development and growth.
Gain a new perspective on yourself and others that dissolves limitations and expands possibilities.
Empower yourself and others to recognise, value and optimise the benefit of difference.
Transform the interpersonal dynamics, productivity and culture at your workplace.
The MBTI framework identiﬁes four basic preferences that reveal how we see and interact with the world around us. Each MBTI preference is represented by a letter (E for Extraversion, S for Sensing, etc), and these combine into the 16 MBTI Types

Reliability Reliability looks at whether a test or questionnaire gives consistent results investigating whether it is consistent over time (test–retest reliability), and whether the questions that measure each scale are consistent with each other (internal consistency reliability). By convention, a correlation of 0.7 is often taken as the minimum acceptable value for personality questionnaire scales. The following independent, peer-reviewed study confirms that the MBTI tool performs well on both measures. In summary Essentially within the MBTI there are 16 types and a survey will tell individuals which type they are most like with a supporting report. In a team building setting the objective of experiencing the MBTI might be: 'to raise awareness and increase understanding of yourself and others in your team and to value the differences between you.
