The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a widely used personality inventory, or test, employed in vocational, educational, and psychotherapy settings to evaluate personality type in adolescents and adults age 14 and older.
In an educational setting, the MBTI may be performed to assess student learning style.
In a classroom setting, the MBTI may be used to help teens and young adults better understand their learning, communication, and social interaction styles.
Because the MBTI is also a tool for self-discovery, mental health professionals may administer the test in counseling sessions to provide their patients with insight into their behavior.
Among adults, the MBTI is also used in organizational settings to assess management skills and facilitate teamwork and problem solving.
