Accelerate your progress with the MBTI®
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) has helped millions of people worldwide gain insights about themselves and how they interact with others—and improve how they communicate, learn, and work. It provides a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation, and achieving excellence.
Contrary to popular opinion, we all don’t think alike. Different people receive and process information, and relate to the world around them, in very different ways. The MBTI® is the premier assessment tool for understanding these differences and applying that understanding to the ways people work and interact.
How It Helps
The MBTI® is ideal for a wide range of applications, including:
Team development—helps ease communication among team members, identify team strengths and weaknesses, and create action plans for improved performance
Leadership development—deepens leaders’ understanding of their personality type and the types of those they are leading to help them manage better, give more meaningful feedback, and improve individual and team performance
Conflict management—improves skills in identifying sources of conflict and intervening early to prevent underperformance, disruption, and disengagement
Stress management—builds resilience, increases productivity, and offers strategies for identifying and managing stress triggers
Career transition and planning—helps guide individuals on career choice, development, and management
About the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Assessment
The MBTI® is the most widely used personality instrument. More than 2 million are used worldwide each year by individuals and organizations, including 89 of the Fortune 100. The Myers-Briggs assessment must be administered and interpreted by a qualified practitioner. Completing the MBTI questionnaire online or on paper takes 15 to 25 minutes.
The Myers-Briggs® (MBTI®) personality assessment is the most-used in the world. Why? Because it’s meaningful and useful in people’s lives. In this brief video, CPP's Director of Research, Richard Thompson, PhD, talks about why people are drawn to the MBTI and how it helps people increase their self-awareness and benefit from the insights it provides.
Predicting Job Success
The most critical step in retaining employees comes before the hire. Assessments add clarity to both hiring and development decisions. The appropriate set of assessments can provide rapid and unbiased insight into a candidate’s true ability and aptitude for a job. Studies show that your percentage for selecting the right candidate doubles or triples if you incorporate validated tests and assessments into your larger evaluation process.
Aberdeen’s latest research on assessments found that, when compared to other companies, organizations using assessments demonstrated:
75% year-over-year improvement in hiring manager satisfaction
75% year-over-year decrease in hiring costs
2.5 times greater year-over-year increase in profit per full time equivalent

“It was great to give my managers the chance to anonymously comment on my behavior. The 360° feedback tool should be a mandatory component of any team's toolbox if that team is truly dedicated to moving from merely good to great."
