What is MBTI Step I?

MBTIMBTI Step I is a powerful, versatile personality type assessment that provides the foundations for a deep understanding of personal motivations and group interactions. It can be applied to multiple personal and business issues, and revisited over time as new challenges arise. By providing multiple quality-assured insights with a single questionnaire, the MBTI assessment's scalability and relevance to all organisational levels delivers a high return on investment.

The Myers-Briggs Step I assessment

MBTI Step I looks at personality type based on four fundamental dimensions of individual difference, to create 16 personality type profiles:

  • Extraversion (E) – Introversion (I)
    Where you prefer to get or focus your energy
  • Sensing (S) – iNtuition (N)
    The kind of information you prefer to gather and trust
  • Thinking (T) – Feeling (F)
    The process you prefer to use in coming to decisions
  • Judging (J) – Perceiving (P)
    How you prefer to deal with the world around you

The insights gained provide a framework for tackling a wealth of issues that can be applied in both professional and private arenas, setting users off on a lifelong Development Journey that gives them greater self-insight the more the framework is applied.
