Understanding Personality Differences for Effective Leadership

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used, researched and written about Personality Type Instrument over the past 75 years. The MBTI provides a useful method for understanding people by looking at their natural preferences on four dimensions or dichotomies, namely, Extraversion-Introversion (E-I), Sensing-Intuition (S-N), Thinking-Feeling (T-F), and Judging-Perceiving (J-P). These four preferences give rise to a set of sixteen unique and different Personality Types.

The MBTI can be used as a powerful model for explaining the habits of mind each person uses for adjusting and responding to everyday demands using their perceiving and judging functions. Because these habits of mind promote typical behavioural expressions, psychological type also gives us a handle on the differences in the work and interpersonal styles we see around us in organisations, at home, and in our communities.
