Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

Ever wonder why some people are highly organized while others function perfectly well out of their clutter. Or why some people are always conscious of time while others don't take time quite so seriously. Do you notice that people with different traits like these often get into conflict over them. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicators can give you a handle on these differences and others.

Based on the psychology of C.G. Jung, the MBTI helps individuals identify their preferences for perceiving their world, making judgments, and presenting themselves to the outside world. Understanding these differences can help managers and team members improve their interpersonal communications, develop strong teams, and in some cases resolve conflict.

The use of Myers Briggs Type Indicators (MBTI) can help members of your organization work better together and be more productive because it offers:

  • A logical model of consistent human behavior
  • A method to understand organizational norms and culture
  • An objective framework for examining and reducing interpersonal and intra-organizational conflict
  • A method to identify strengths and blind spots of individuals and organizational units

MBTI can be applied in a variety of areas, such as management training, team building, career development, time management, creative problem solving, and training of trainers


I offer either a one day (7 hours) or two day (14 hours) workshop on using MBTI in an organization. These courses will use a combination of experiential training and lecture to:

  • Increase participant self-awareness and confirmed self perceptions around some of their own strengths and weaknesses
  • Discover normal differences in people concerning:
  • Where people receive and direct their energy
  • How people gather information
  • How people make decisions
  • How people present themselves to the world
  • Come to appreciate their own gifts and strengths and those of others
  • Learn methods to capitalize on their own strengths and those of others
  • Apply MBTI to improve personal work habits and working relations with colleagues

At the end of a two day workshop, participants would have covered the above and also use MBTI to explore:

  • Individual relations with managers and work groups
  • Use of MBTI with work teams
  • Use of MBTI in problem solving
  • Developing plans to use MBTI in their work life

At the end of these trainings participants will have a good understanding of a straight forward tool to help them work better individually, interpersonally, and as a team. For more information contact Frank Page at the address above.

(Please note that I have not yet been able to find the MBTI Instrument in Bahasa Indonesia; therefore all participants for this training need to be comfortable with English in order to fill out the instrument.)
