Based on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - Career Report About Myers Briggs (MBTI) The MBTI was developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katherine Briggs (mother and daughter). The MBTI is based on Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types. Much research has been completed on the MBTI results. It has a reputation of being a highly reliable inventory. You will find the MBTI referred to in many academic and business settings The inventory reveals data about an individual’s personality preferences.
About Myers Briggs (MBTI) There are 16 Myers Briggs types (4 letter code). It is important to understand that one type is not better than another. They are all equal. The type simply defines our personality preference. The code titles do not necessarily imply the typical definition. For instance, introversion is not always mean quite and shy … judging does not mean judgemental … and perceiving does not mean perceptive.
Preferences! Take out a piece of paper and write your name with the hand you normally write Now … write your name with the opposite hand. It probably is not as neat …but, you could do it. It is just not your preference to write with that hand. Jane
All about Preference! MBTI is about understanding your preference and understanding how sometimes we have to experience life, things etc. outside of our preference zone.
Based on Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - Career Report The MBTI Types Where we focus our attention or draw our energy determines whether we are … Extroversion or Introversion “Introverts find energy in the inner world of ideas, concepts, and abstractions. They can be sociable but need quiet to recharge their batteries. Introverts want to understand the world. Introverts are concentrators and reflective thinkers. Their motto is: Ready, Aim, Aim,..... For the introvert, there is no impression without reflection.” “Extraverts find energy in things and people. They prefer interaction with others, and are action oriented. Extraverts are interactors and "on-the-fly" thinkers. Their motto is: Ready, Fire, Aim. For the extravert, there is no impression without expression.”

Judging or Perceiving “Judging people are decisive, planful and self regimented. They focus on completing the task, only want to know the essentials, and take action quickly (perhaps too quickly). They plan their work and work their plan. Deadlines are sacred. Their motto is: just do it!” “Perceptive people are curious, adaptable, and spontaneous. They start many tasks, want to know everything about each task, and often find it difficult to complete a task. Deadlines are meant to be stretched. Their motto is: on the other hand....”

MBTI and Learning Styles Extroversion Like to study in groups or with someone else Like to talk through or explain the lesson to others Like classes that are active Enjoy classes that engage in discussion Introversion Like to have time to reflect on what they are learning Prefer to study alone Enjoy classes with lectures that allow time for reflection Prefer written communication and reading
MBTI and Learning Styles Sensing Prefer classes that produce an end result to present data May limit themselves by not looking beyond the obvious Prefer “organized, linear, and structured lectures.” Intuition Prefer classes that allow them to look beyond the obvious Enjoy critical thinking projects Prefer to have “the big picture, or an integrating framework, to understand a subject.”
MBTI and Learning Styles Thinking Prefer classes that offer a sense of logic to problem solving. Like clear course and topic objectives. Prefer assignments written with action verbs. Feeling Prefer classes that link to the real world and how it affects them. Like working in groups Enjoy small group exercises
MBTI and Learning Styles Judging Prefer classes with structure. Prefer to work from an outline or schedule. Don’t like surprises “Following hints on note taking and test taking help judging students learn more effectively. For example, speed writing, color coding, reversing question.” Perceiving Prefer classes that allow them flexibility “Often postpone doing an assignment until the very last minute. They are not lazy. Quite to the contrary, they seek information to the very last minute (and sometimes beyond). We recommend decomposing a complex project or paper into a series of sub-assignments and providing deadlines for each sub-assignment. The deadlines may keep the perceptive students on target.”
