The MBTI® provides a positive and constructive way of understanding and valuing differences between people. Zarine is a licensed MBTI practitioner, and can help individuals and teams to make the most of their natural strengths by understanding their Type.
The MBTI is the world’s leading indicator of personal styles. It is a questionnaire that is used to capture fundamental differences between people; the frameworks it employs for doing this is elegant and easy to apply in a range of occupational and non-work settings.
How is the MBTI used?
Some of the most common applications are:
Developing Leadership Potential
Self-awareness is fundamental to good leadership. An understanding of the impact that personal style has on people’s motivation and commitment is essential. The MBTI helps managers assess their strengths, their preferred style of problem solving and also how their style relates to other people’s styles, particularly those that are different from their own.
Developing Effective Teams
Using the MBTI, teams can evaluate their strengths and also clarify biases in their working practices. For instance, does the team over-emphasise logical assessment at the expense of considering personnel issues, such as morale? Or does it focus too strongly on strategy and not enough on the practicalities of implementation? By assessing these biases, teams begin to appreciate the importance of valuing different approaches and perspectives.
Individuals of different Types tend to experience change and the process of transition in quite different ways. Building awareness of these different reactions can help managers and organisations support their staff and themselves through the trauma of organisational change.
The MBTI gives an insight into potential strengths and blindspots in problem solving and hence can allow individuals and groups to improve the breadth and depth of their analyses.
The MBTI is very helpful in building self-esteem as it explicitly emphasises the positive contribution that each Type can make. It can also help in dealing with conflict in relationships as, having identified the differences, it focuses on valuing those differences and gives people a clear way of understanding them.
Improving Teaching/ Training Methods
The MBTI can be used to analyse and improve teaching methods. It provides a framework for understanding differences in learning styles, and hence for creating learning situations which will appeal to different Types. It also helps teachers explore various styles of communicating with people.
