Course description

Let's Get Personal: Working with Personality Type

In this course, you will learn about the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator, MBTI for short. It is the most frequently used assessment of personality type in the world. Nearly 90% of the Fortune 100 companies use MBTI for recruitment, promotions, job-fit decisions, and building more effective teams.

Core personality traits are much more difficult to change than any single Power Skill. So, it very important to understand your type, its strengths weaknesses, and how to use your understanding of your type to be happier and happier at work. Personality type describes how you prefer to get data, make decisions, generate energy and are oriented to the outside world. These are preferences which are your personality's default setting. Your behavior may differ, may have to differ sometimes from your preferences, but that takes extra energy to do.
