Myers Brigs and Beyond

Myers Brigs and Beyond

Pretty much everyone has heard of the Myers-Brigs personality test. You can find lots of websites that offer free imitation tests, or quick evaluations. The Myers-Brigs analyzes four areas of personality and then breaks each area into one of two possibilities. In the end, you discover a four letter code (there are 16 possible combinations), and that code can “unlock” all sorts of success possibilities! At least, so the books and websites claim.

But did you know that the Myers-Brigs is not actually intended to bring you instant and easy success? In fact, it can indicate areas of your life where you are unbalanced. A person who is an extreme introvert may actually find more success when she challenges herself to be more social. The letters of the Myers-Briggs indicate areas of comfort, not constraints or limitations.

So, during the month of March, I’d like to challenge each of you to push beyond your Myers-Brigs type. Each week I’ll discuss one of the four main facets of the personality type, and include challenges to help you develop your opposite side.
