MBTI or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the world’s most widely used personality inventory. When used in conjunction with one of our team building games it takes the experience and learning to another level.
In her studies of people and extensive reading of Jung’s theories, Isabel Myers-Briggs concluded there were four primary ways people differed from one another. She labeled these differences “preferences”. One of the practical applications of the MBTI and the understanding of these preferences is in supporting better Teamwork. For example, people who share Sensing and Thinking preferences find they are naturally on the same wavelength; they easily understand one another, making good teammates and partners. Likewise, people who share Intuition and Feeling have a similar kinship among them. However, in the real world it is more likely that you’ll find a mixed bag of people, a variety of types, in the same work group. While this diversity can be a useful strength, contributing to greater depth and breadth of team competence, there will be natural communication barriers within the team due to their natural mental language differences. Such differences can be overcome, and the communication gap bridged with practice learning to “talk” and “think” in a second or third preference language. An MBTI workshop is an introduction to learning the language, habits and culture of other types.
