Quick Guide to effective email and your personality

Understand your personality, get the most from email communication

For practitioners and partners wanting to promote every day advantages of being Type aware.

In our recent research into email use, 84% of respondents said that they could not do their job without email

There are a lot of similarities in how we feel about and use email, but there are differences too. Many of the differences in how we feel about email (including what we expect from other people) relate to our personality, and in particular to our MBTI Type preferences. 

Find your lead Core Character in the guide below for tips on how to be more effective in your email communication. If you know your four-letter MBTI Type but you don't know your lead Core Character, you can either view the Introduction to Core Characters or refer to page five of the Quick Guide. 

If you're a qualified MBTI practitioner, you can download a customisable pdf version of this Quick Guide* and accompanying Type and email exercise*.
