Ways to explore and understand your unique personality include:
- Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality inventory used to increase self-awareness of ones preferences and to help individuals understand and appreciate the differences of others. The MBTI measures preferences in four different areas and produces a personality type for each individual. It assists in career decision-making by providing information about what personality types are most often represented in different career fields. It is important to understand that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is not a test. There are no right or wrong answers. Your answers to the questions on this assessment will help show how you like to look at things and how you like to go about deciding things. You will fill out an online questionnaire to select the answers that best fit for you. Through interpretation of the results you will learn about your natural preferences. Knowing your own preferences can help you understand what your strengths are, what kinds of work you might enjoy, and how people with different preferences can relate to one another.
Interested in completing the assessment and reviewing your preferences (including career ideas)? Email the Business Career Center at email@example.com to receive assessment instructions.
