MBTI® Step II

Uncovering the facets of personality type

MBTI Step II (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®) goes beyond the Step I framework to uncover the unique individual behind each personality profile. It acts as a catalyst for enhancing personal and business results by providing focused insight to support development planning.

What is MBTI Step II?

MBTIMBTI Step II is a Myers-Briggs questionnaire that hits at the heart of who someone is by tapping into the facets within each Step I type preference. It can help you to understand the unique ‘fingerprint’ of an individual’s personality, revealing what makes them different to others of their Step I type. The result is a highly personalised profile and development plan that is perfect for coaching, action planning and building cohesive teams.

The Myers-Briggs tool: the power of detail

Using the insights of MBTI Step I framework as its starting point, with the four dichotomies of Extraversion (E) – Introversion (I), Sensing (S) – iNtuition (N), Thinking (T) – Feeling (F) and Judging (J) – Perceiving (P), Step II explores these broad-brush revelations in greater detail.

It works by drilling down into each of the preference pairs to reveal results on five supplementary facets of personality for each preference pair, highlighting how these fit with the overall Step I type, and where there are inconsistencies that can explain interpersonal challenges. Step II has the power to help people see in great detail where their points of compatibility and potential discord lie, providing a convincing and resonant framework for teams and individuals at all levels.

The MBTI Step II Interpretive Report uses a graphical format to display the results, guaranteed to enlighten, inspire and challenge the individual.
