For more than 50 years, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) Personality Inventory has helped millions of individuals
throughout the world gain insight into themselves and how they interact with others. The MBTI assessment helps people
transform themselves – by giving them a powerful tool for improving how they communicate, learn, and work.
         Isabel Myers’ unique implementation of Carl Jung’s theory of psychological type, the MBTI instrument, determines
references on four dichotomies:
• Extraversion – Introversion
• Sensing – Intuition
• Thinking – Feeling
• Judging – Perceiving
Combinations of these preferences result in 16 distinct personality types.

The MBTI instrument’s wide-ranging applications promote growth and development in many organisational settings, including
business, counselling, and education.
         The instrument is scored using item response theory (IRT), one of the most powerful item-rating methods in modern
test theory, ensuring the most accurate prediction of a person’s true type.
• Form M (Step I) includes 93 items and provides the basic MBTI four-letter type.
• Form Q (Step II) includes 144 items and provides the basic MBTI four-letter type and results on 20 facets of that type. It is
the next step in personal and professional development using the MBTI assessment. Form Q drills down to a finer level of detail
to explore personal variation within each type.
• MBTI® Complete brings together for the first time the genuine Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment and a basic gold
standard interpretation developed by type expert Allen Hammer, PhD. Endorsed by the Myers and Briggs Foundation, this one-
stop online offering boosts training effectiveness by automating participants’ introduction to personality type.

The first step in building great leaders and teams that excel is to start with the people and their awareness of themselves and
others. The Team Report makes that first step a springboard into accelerated high-performance development.
