Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to understand more about who you are
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator and other personality assessments are highly popular as part of career choice. They provide information on the sort of person you are and can help understand how you best work.
The most popular is the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. The MBTI® assessment is a self-reporting personality assessment, designed to help people like you understand more about yourself.
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) helps you to understand who you are, your natural preferences, motivations, and potential areas for growth. It is particularly helpful to understand how to relate to people, especially those with a different personality type.
You’ve probably come across the 4 dimensions
