Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is the most popular personality assessment used by companies. Myers-Briggs looks at how we prefer to interact with others, how we prefer to process information, how we prefer to communicate and how we like to make decisions. Knowing your preferences and the preferences of your co-workers can help you to be a more effective communicator, team member, and leader.
For this assignment, you first need to take the attached survey to identify your Myers-Briggs (personality) Type Indicator MBTI.
Read about MBTI and preferred communication methods in the textbook chapter on Group Diversity or by reading on-line resources. Here are a couple of links to on-line articles.
Submit a typed, one-page, single space report that describes your MBTI and your communication and decision making preferences. Give examples of situations when your preferred communication style and/or decision making style collided with someone whose style was different than yours. How well can you assess the communication preferences of others and “flex” your style as needed?
The numbers you score on the MBTI survey will give you an indication of how well you can flex/adapt your style to a given situation. For example, if your numbers for Extrovert is a 3 and Introvert is a 4, it will be easier for you to flex your (slightly) preferred Introverted style to a co-worker’s Extroverted style. If your numbers are Extrovert 0 and Introvert 7, it will be much more challenging to flex your Introverted style to your Extroverted co-worker. Let’s hope that your boss isn’t a 7 on the Extrovert scale and a 0 on the Introvert scale.
Extroverts like to talk ideas through in a group. Introverts prefer to talk one-to-one or better yet, put it in writing.
Sensing types want to see facts and figures (concrete evidence). Intuitives just know and they can’t tell you how they know — just trust their gut on this one.
Thinking types want logical information; brief and to the point. Feeling types have emotional stories (anecdotal evidence) to tell.
Judging types are skilled at making decisions quickly and with limited information. Perceiving types want more information and may have difficulty making decisions because there are too many possibilities or not enough information.
You can read more about ways to communication with the different types in the attached Myers-Briggs & Communication.
Since we will be talking about group Norms (rules) in this course, you can also read the attached MBTI and Rules. How does your type like to follow rules?
Any project involves planning. What does your Myers-Briggs type think about planning? See attached.
