So what do all those cryptic MBTI code letters mean?
Before taking our informal online - free - Myers Briggs Personality Test ("click here" to take our C ognitive S tyle Inventory ) to assist in verifying your Myers Briggs personality type score. know that the best way to understand your personality or psychological type is to take an official MBTI ® ( Myers Briggs Type Indicator ) instrument from a professional who has met the standards necessary to be "qualified" to administer the "test." An excellent resource for "qualified" persons is the Association for Psychological Type. Through their web site at www.aptinternational.org you can learn about APT chapters and members in your area.
* While sometimes referred to as the MBTI Personality Test, Myers-Briggs Personality Test, the Briggs Myers personality test, Myers Briggs Test or the MBTI test, the MBTI ® is not a personality test but a personality assessment or instrument in which there are no right or wrong answers.
self-scoring inventory is Not a substitute for taking an in-person MBTI ® from an experienced MBTI administrator. It is a tool I developed to introduce my clients to personality type or psychological type and to help validate the results I received from administering the MBTI ® personality assessment. I hope it whets your appetite for learning more about the Myers and Briggs model of personality development and its message of increased self-understanding and understanding of others and our "differing gifts."
