We Can Speak The Same Language And Still Not Know What Anyone Is Talking About
The MBTI® (or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®) is a test which describes your preferential style of communication. We call your human operating system. This test, and its results, help to explain how you prefer to take in and give out information. It also helps you realize that not everyone communicates the same way you do.
The added benefit of the MBTI® is that it explains how everyone else prefers to communicate as well.
Dr. Richard D. Grant, Jr. is a master at using the MBTI® to apply changes to your choice of language and actions to better communicate with others that do not match your own communication preferences. From business to marriage to raising children, Dr. Grant uses his experience as a family psychologist and practitioner of the MBTI® to bring valuable insight to families and large corporations alike.
The MBTI® was developed by Isabel Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs. After being exposed to the ideas of Carl Jung in 1923, the pair began looking for psychological types and spent the next three decades researching and developing their questionnaire to determine psychological type. In 1975, Consulting Psychologists Press, Inc. (now called CPP, Inc.) began publishing the MBTI® instrument for practical applications instead of just for research. The test is currently in form “M”.
