MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDICATOR (MBTI) (Assessment)
The MBTI is the most widely used and perhaps the most reliable personality inventory in the world. The indicator is a measure of Jungian typology. It yields four scores indicating a person’s preferences for the following personality dimensions: Extroversion/Introversion, Sensing/Intuition, Thinking/Feeling, and Judging/Perceiving. Participants receive Introduction to Type, in which Isabel Briggs Myers explains type theory and describes each of the 16 normal personality types. The MBTI can provide additional insights into the educational leaders’ personalities including, how their personalities support them when they are “at their best,’ general characteristics of their personalities, how others may see them, and their potential areas for growth. MBTI results can be used to assist educational leaders in the decision-making process to illustrate how varying definitions of the same problem can be a function of differences in type preference.
