It could be argued that one’s personality plays an instrumental role in not only our career selection but our advancement up the corporate ladder. Thus, one perceives it to be imperative to not only understand our personality but also those we work with.
So, how do we determine our Personality Type?
Most of us will learn this through trial and error, listening to others’ perceptions and analysing our own. It can take a lifetime this way.
But there is an easier way.
As a qualified Myer Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) practitioner (QMBTI), one can administer and analyse the MBTI instrument that will indicate 1 of 16 possible personality (Type) outcomes.
Broken down into four (4) key areas
- Extroversion V Introversion
- Intuition V Sensing
- Thinking V Feeling
- Judging V Perceiving
The unique combination of each area will provide a detailed insight into how you prefer to communicate and interact in both your professional and personal life.
Imagine the benefits of knowing how to communicate with your boss or client in a way that is beneficial and meaningful for them.
Would that not increase your productivity and efficiency, equating to an increase in career development and advancement opportunities?
