What was the difference? Created in the 1940’s by Isabel Briggs-Myers and her mother, Katharine Briggs.

Together they developed their model and inventory around the ideas and theories of Swiss physician-psychologist Carl Jung, a contemporary of Sigmund Freud. We tend to assume unconsciously that other people’s minds work in the same principles as our own.

All too often the people we interact with do not reason as we reason, do not value things we value, or are not interested in what interests us. So…….. We want to learn more about personality types so that we can
expect specific differences in specific people and to cope with
the people and their differences more constructively than we
otherwise could. In her studies of people and extensive reading of Jung's theories, Myers concluded there were four primary ways people differed from one another. She labeled these differences "preferences" - drawing a similarity to "hand preferences" to illustrate that although we all use both of our hands, most of us have a preference for one over the other and "it" takes the lead in many of the activities in which we use our hands. Just like we tried earlier. “So what do all those cryptic MBTI code letters mean?” Our Element Source of Energy I Introvert Characteristics

Unstructured Does knowing your Type fence you in? Not if you understand it. An understanding of type frees you in several ways. It gives you confidence in your own direction of development – the areas in which you can become excellent with most ease and pleasure. It can also reduce the guilt many people feel at not being able to do everything in life equally. Can you change your Type? Scores in the MBTI can be changed depending on how you answer the questions. Score changes can result in a report of a different type. Jung seemed to believe that each person has a true type that he or she may not yet have discovered. The true type does not change, although it may seem to, as one focuses on developing different mental processes at different stages of one’s life. Is everyone of the same Type alike? No. There are many individual types within each type. Some people are more differentiated, or at a higher level of type development than others. Even in well-developed types, there are big differences. Canada Statistics Extroverts 52% Introvert 48%
