How will knowing my MBTI® help me?

Recognising your personality type will give you the tools to understand your behaviour and by identifying your strengths and to look for opportunities where you could use them. It can also provide you with the tools to recognise and appreciate other types of preferences, and how to interact more successfully. It can improve interaction in all relationships, both personal and professional.

How reliable is MBTI® testing?

The validity and reliability of the MBT®I indicator has been proved during the course of hundreds of independent studies. Technical information on the research and psychometric properties are available in the MBTI® manual and listed in other scientific publications.

Will MBTI® help me get on better with other people?

The test includes a tool designed to help you appreciate the differences between the different preference types and that you can achieve more satisfactory interaction as a result. The benefits can include better relationships with family, friends and colleagues.

Does MBTI® assess my emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence refers impulse control, how you empathise with others and deal with stress both intrapersonally (internally) and interpersonally (getting along with other people). MBTI also deals with internal and external processes and therefore can be used as a tool to enhance emotional intelligence.

Is there a good and bad personality type?

There are no right or wrong combinations of preferences or personality types. If you feel that you could interact better with other types, the test results will give you the tools to improve your interaction. All personality types are important and needed in our society because each provides different reasoning and point of view.

Will my results be the same each time I take a test?

If you have been tested using a genuine MBTI Indicator tool your psychological type will remain the same. That said, your preferences will develop and your personality will grow throughout your lifespan. Carl Jung theorised that your preferences are confirmed and grow stronger, and in the second part you will develop lesser-used preferences in order to achieve balance.
