University of Memphis CDMBA and IMBA candidates recently took the Myers-Briggs personality test as a tool to understand how employees and employers interact based on personality traits. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test combines the 16 possible personality types of extraversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judgement/perception.  Based on the theory of psychological types developed by Carl Jung, the MBTI spotlights our own personality combinations.

According to the Myers-Briggs Foundation:

The different types complement each other because each expresses a valuable although different perspective. For example:

  • A Sensing preference provides pragmatic realism, while a preference for Intuition provides a view of the possibilities.
  • A Thinking preference provides an impersonal analysis of the situation, while a Feeling preference provides a look at the personal and human consequences of an action.

What is your MBTI personality type?  Post in the comment box below.
