Using Myers Briggs at Work

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, knowledge of personality type and how it is used to make people more effective are used by many organisations, large and small throughout the world. "Since type provides a framework for understanding individual differences, and provides a dynamic model of individual development, it has found wide application in the many functions that compose an organisation," Gordon Lawrence and Charles Martin, Building People, Building Programs (CAPT 2001).

Type and Organisations

Type can be introduced into an organisation to support many functions and situations including: managing others, development of leadership skills, conflict resolution, executive coaching, change management, and other more customised needs.

Type and Your Work

When you understand your type preferences, you can approach your own work in a manner that best suits your style, including: how you manage your time, problem solving, best approaches for decision making, and dealing with stress. Knowledge of type can help you better understand the culture of the place you work, develop new skills, understand your participation in teams, and cope with change in the workplace.

If your work involves selling, knowledge of type can be helpful in understanding what clients need from you, especially how they best like to learn about products and services and how they like to interact during the process of gathering information and making decisions.
