The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI™) is a powerful psychometric tool that measures tendencies and preferences in how people perceive and use information when making decisions. The MBTI™ reveals the components of the human personality which affect most of the activities a person engages in in both their personal and professional lives. It is therefore an important tool for behavior evaluation.


Key features and validity

Over the last 40 years, hundreds of international studies on human personality types have proved the MBTI™ tool’s high level of reliability and accuracy. The MBTI™ is now one of the most referred to and frequently used tools for analyzing working styles and human relationships. Due to its extensive  applicability and efficiency, it has become an almost indispensable tool for organizations that run employees’ career evaluation and development programs.

Using the MBTI™ test, a profile is produced that is centered on four key dimensions of an individual’s personality:

  • Attention and focus, how the individual interacts with the environment and what energizes the individual are indicated by the Extravert (E)/Introvert (I) scores
  • How the individual extracts and perceives information are indicated by the Sensing (S)/Intuitive (N) scores
  • How the individual makes decisions and the approach (logical analysis or value- and people-centered) taken when making them are indicated by the Thinking (T)/Feeling (F) scores
  • The way the individual deals with the world in the decision making process (planned or spontaneous) is indicated by the Judging (J)/Perceiving (P) scores
