Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type indicator (MBTI) is a self report questionnaire designed to make psychological types (normal personality differences) understandable and useful in our everyday life. Every one of us has a set of preferences by which we live. There is no right or wrong to these preferences. They simply produce different kinds of people who are interested in different things, are drawn to different fields, and sometimes find it hard to understand each other.

The MBTI is a tool that can be utilized to identify and understand your own preferences and discover how they apply to a career decision. The MBTI will also help you to identify your strengths and unique gifts. You can use the information to better understand yourself, your motivations, your strengths, and potential areas of growth. It will also help you to better understand and appreciate those who differ from you.

The MBTI is primarily concerned with the valuable differences in people that result from where they like to focus their attention, the way they prefer to take in information, the way they make decisions, and the kind of work/lifestyle they adopt.

To take the MBTI, contact the Career Center at (413) 748-3222 to schedule an individual counseling appointment.
