WELL-BEING AND MBTI® PERSONALITY TYPE IN THE WORKPLACE

24 Jul 2018

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument is the best-known and most trusted personality assessment tool available today. As many as 1.5 million assessments are administered annually to individuals, including to employees of many Fortune 500 companies.


The MBTI® instrument has been revised several times since it first appeared in 1942. New item formats and scoring methods were developed and tested first by Isabel Myers and later by professional psychometricians, with each revision leading to technical improvements over the previous form. The most recent forms are Form M and Form Q, both of which use item response theory (IRT)-based scoring and item selection. Validity of both Form M and Form Q has been examined through behavioural observations, exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses, correlations with related measures, and even brain scans.
