What is a Myers Briggs Personality test? How does Life Maps coaching use it?

What is a Myers-Briggs Personality Test? While commonly referred to as the Myers Briggs Test or the MBTI Test, the MBTI® is not a test but a personality inventory or psychological instrument. A test implies that there are right and wrong answers which is not true in the MBTI®. The Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator measures one’s natural preferences on the four components of personality. By fully understanding these four natural preferences, you are more conscious of your natural strengths and how to best use those strengths to meet your needs effectively in any given situation.

Obtaining the results of a Myers Briggs Personality Type questionnaire is only the beginning step of understanding your personality. It’s like looking at yourself through a keyhole; a very narrow glimpse at the truth. The Myers Briggs Personality Type results are meant to be used with a Qualified Instructor who educates you and helps you interpret the results.
