The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a psychometric instrument which aims to explore people's personality behaviours linked to underlying preferences (based upon Jung’s theory of psychological types). A sharing of MBTI results can reveal valuable differences between people which can often be a source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.
Prior to the event team members will be required to complete an online questionnaire and online interactive learning session. This will lead to the downloading of an MBTI Type Description Report.
The follow up workshop session aims to explore people's personality behaviours linked to underlying preferences. This can lead to valuable learning reducing misunderstanding and miscommunication. Through a series of group exercises and discussions, participants will be invited to share their findings with team members relating to how these insights might be used to improve team effectiveness when back in the workplace.
Participants receive an email from The Myers-Briggs Company. This will contain a link to the MBTI Complete Elevate platform.

It should be stressed that the MBTI questionnaire is never to be used for assessment for selection or to limit or to pigeon-hole people.
Oxford Brookes does not retain or formally record any outcomes. The MBTI qualified practitioner (in OCSLD) will use MBTI report preferences to facilitate the follow on workshop and to organise different discussion groupings within the workshop. The facilitator will log that they have administered the MBTI questionnaire and completed the follow on workshop.
The practitioner will not record any MBTI preference related data.
Booking for this workshop is via a request from a department manager.
Workshops will be facilitated by those members of the OCSLD team who are MBTI qualified practitioners.
