Personality differences: a benefit or just difficult? Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

We do not live alone or work in isolation. Knowing your personality type may help you to understand yourself better as well as the people around you. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is designed to identify each person's personality type and to make it understandable and useful in everyday life. The basis for the indicator is Jung's psychological types.

The course consists of a 3,5 hour group session. Approximately one week before the course, all participants will receive a questionnaire by e-mail (this will take 20-30 minutes to complete).

During the course, your MBTI profile will be identified and your will start to understand and appreciate the differences in personality types.

Taking the MBTI inventory and receiving feedback will:

  1. help you identify your unique gifts,
  2. enhance understanding of yourself: motivations, strengths, potential areas for growth and
  3. help you appreciate people who differs from you

Understanding your MBTI type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

How personality type & culture impact each other - Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used personality type questionnaire worldwide and a favorite among HR professionals. Knowing your type helps you understand yourself and how you interact and communicate with others. The MBTI questionnaire has been translated into many languages and adapted to many cultural contexts. It has been found that all types exist in all countries, but extroverts/ introverts don't look the same around the world. In other words, introverts in the USA will seem different to introverts in Finland.

Before the course you will recieve the MBTI self-report questionnaire by Email. Filling in the questionnaire will take approx. 20 - 30 min.

During the Feedback session on Day 1 (3,5 hours) we will:

  • provide an introduction to MBTI - the theory behind it
  • give some practical examples of how personality types affect our everyday lives
  • participants will have a chance to guess their typology results and finally the questionnaire results will be presented - respecting confidentiality.

During the Feedback session on Day 2 (3,5 hours) the focus will be on the influence of culture on personality type. We will:

  • provide theoretical context information on
  • Nature - Nurture debate - Are personality types universal or culture specific?
  • Globalization: Individualistic versus collectivisitic societies
  • discuss practical applications on
  • Fit / Clash between Personality Type and Culture
  • Subtle influence of Personality Type and Culture on behaviour.

If we share commonalities with our culture of origin and/or host culture, we encounter less resistance, less stress; life just seems to run smoother. The contrary is also true; the more different your personality and culture types are, the more you may struggle to feel accepted or appreciated for your unique perspective.

Taking the MBTI inventory and receiving feedback will:

  1. Enhance your understanding of yourself: your preferred way of doing things
  2. Help you appreciate people who differ from you within your own and other cultures
  3. Show ways to avoid conflict and improve conflict resolution.

Understanding your MBTI type is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.
