People who are certified to administer the MBTI instrument are committed to using it in an ethical way, which includes protecting your confidentiality, showing you how to verify your type, giving feedback interactively, and presenting all types as valuable.
The MBTI® personality assessment instrument
Consultants, counselors, coaches, therapists and many other people with interests in or training with psychology, human development, or social interaction may be certified to administer the MBTI instrument. These trained professionals will help you verify your MBTI type and discuss your results either individually or in a group setting.
Take the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® instrument
The MBTI assessment is administered either online or with paper and pencil, most often through a certified individual who has met certain professional requirements for interpreting the results of the instrument.
Several options are available for those who want to take the MBTI instrument:
- Online: If you would like to take it now, go to mbtionline.com. The publisher of the MBTI® instrument, CPP, Inc., has developed an online process where participants verify their type preferences while answering questions. Because of the interactive nature of the system, person-to-person feedback from a certified MBTI practitioner is not required. However, individuals who take the MBTI assessment in this way may want to have a follow-up discussion with an MBTI professional. This can help them gain a better understanding of their best-fittype, while providing them with greater insight into the meaning of their preferences.
- Personal Feedback: You can take the MBTI with personal feedback, provided by the Center for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT®)
More than two million people have taken the DISC test to better understand their personality type and behavioral style. Developed by psychologist William Moulton Marston, the DISC assessment examines how an individual ranks in four areas of behavior — dominance, inducement, submission and compliance. Designed for both individuals who want to identify and maximize their strengths, and organizations looking to integrate high-performance teams.
A modern interpretation of Dr. William Marston’s behavioral dimensions, this personal strengths profile uncovers four quadrants of behavior. Once you understand your natural behavioral patterns, it will be easier for you to recognize the right opportunities to achieve the results you desire.
