The MBTI® Personality Test

 

The MBTI® personality test is the most widely used inventory in the world. It provides an accurate picture of a person’s personality type by determining preferences on four dichotomies:

  • Extraversion/Introversion:Describes where people prefer to focus their attention and get their energy from the outer world of people and activity or their inner world of ideas and experiences
  • Sensing/Intuition: Describes how people prefer to take in information, focused on what is real and actual or on patterns and meanings in data
  • Thinking/Feeling: Describes how people prefer to make decisions based on logical analysis or guided by concern for their impact on others
  • Judging/Perceiving: Describes how people prefer to deal with the outer world in a planned orderly way, or in a flexible spontaneous way

Combinations of these preferences result in 16 distinct personality types. Knowledge of your type can help you understand your way of communicating and interacting with others. The MBTI® Step II (Form Q) instrument, drills down and details 20 facets of the preferences for more in-depth personality type understanding. This is an excellent career development tool since it discusses how you communicate, make decisions, manage change and manage conflict. This is an effective for individual assessment, leadership development workshops and executive coaching.

Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile®.

While IQ remains pretty much fixed from birth, EQ (or S+EI) can be learned.

 

We use the most comprehensive S+EI assessment instrument on the market today, the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile®. This gives us immediate insights into our client’s strengths and potential development needs when it comes to social and emotional intelligence, allowing us to target the most important areas for development first.

 

Once we have identified strengths and development opportunities in S+EI, we work with our clients to create a development plan for strengthening their social and emotional intelligence. Over the course of several sessions (and a complete S+EI coaching program can run six months or more), we provide our clients with worksheets, tip sheets and all the tools they need to accelerate their own self-awareness, their awareness of others (and their potential impact on others), as well as the tools they need to manage their social and emotional and behavioral responses in challenging situations.

 

In addition, throughout the coaching program, we work with our clients on key relationship management skills such as powerful influencing skills, communication, visionary leadership, conflict management, teamwork and collaboration, and building trust (among others).

 

This comprehensive coaching program is guaranteed to quickly enhance our clients’ awareness of themselves and others, and better manage themselves and their relationships with others.

16PF

The 16PF Questionnaire is used in a variety of settings, including employment selection, placement, and development, and executive and career coaching. This instrument be helps us as we evaluate suitable jobs and careers, as well as current job performance. It is an excellent career development tool as it identifies and predicts specific behaviors. Dr. Raymond Cattell developed the 16PF® Questionnaire to measure the range of normal personality. Cattell identified sixteen primary personality traits that describe normal, adult personality. He further factor analyzed these primary scales to develop five global factors (often called Big Five personality traits). The global factors describe the primary personality traits at a broader level. 16PF is a registered trademark of the Institute for Personality and Ability Testing, Inc.
