The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self-reported questionnaire designed to help you understand your own personality preferences and how they impact your everyday life. Taking the MBTI inventory and receiving feedback will help you identify your unique gifts. The information enhances understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas for growth. It may also help you appreciate people who differ from you. Understanding your MBTI type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.
