Bring the power of the MBTI® to your workforce in a convenient online format. We take the hassle out of assessing your team so you can focus on helping your employees learn, develop, and grow.
How the MBTI works
When your employees take the official MBTI online, they'll be assessed on four fundamental areas of personality. They'll learn how they get energized, make decisions, process information, and interact with their environments. Each employee will discover their individual preferences on four key personality facets:
- Extraverted or Introverted? Do you get your energy from other people, or from your own internal world?
- Sensing or Intuitive? Do you focus on the present and what you can see, or the future and what you can imagine?
- Thinking or Feeling? Do you make decisions based on logic, or on values and people?
- Judging or Perceiving? Do you prefer things structured and organized, or flexible and spontaneous?
Put together, these four personality facets create one of 16 personality types, each with their own unique work style. From motivation to leadership to communication, each employee will discover what their personality type means on the job with their personalized report (see a PDF sample).
Who can benefit from the MBTI
The MBTI is appropriate for people at all levels of an organization. Discovering personality type is a key aspect of employee development at any stage, whether just starting out at the entry level or developing into an effective leader.
Because the MBTI describes who a person is at their core, it can help employees to plan a career path that takes advantage of their natural strengths. It can also help individuals to understand areas where they can best direct their development efforts.
When teams take the MBTI together, they learn a common language they can use to talk about different styles at work. Colleagues who have taken the MBTI together find that they better understand how to communicate and work effectively with one another.

Questions & Answers
Q. I'm interested in developing my leadership skills. Can this assessment help?
Absolutely. Because the MBTI is about who you are at your core, it will help you to understand how to become the best leader you can be. You'll discover how to play to your individual strengths to grow as an effective decision-maker, motivator, and visionary.
The MBTI can also help you to choose the right leadership roles to maximize your success. You'll learn which work environments suit you best, so that you can reach your full potential.
Many leaders find that a knowledge of personality type is invaluable when learning to effectively manage a variety of people. Discovering your own type is the first step in understanding how to relate to and motivate others.
Q. I'd like to use the MBTI to assess potential new hires. Can you help?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide MBTI assessment services for the purpose of hiring or selection. Using the MBTI for selection violates the ethical guidelines for the instrument, and it is our belief that it is neither an appropriate nor a helpful tool in the hiring process.
On the other hand, the MBTI can be an excellent tool for new hires as they get to know their colleagues and become acclimated to the organization. This is most effective when the existing team has already been assessed.
