  • What is the MBTI®?

    The MBTI® allows you to understand your preferred modes of operation for:

    • Recharge your batteries in contact with the outside world (Extraversion) or in your inner world (Introverted).
    • Perceiving information in a concrete (Sensation) or abstract (Intuition) way.
    • Make your decisions logically (Thinking) or subjective (Feeling).
    • Organize your life in a planned and organized way (Judgment) or adaptively and flexibly (Perception).

     

     

  • MBTI® 8 preferences

    The MBTI® identifies 8 preferences.

    Each of us naturally has a preference for:

    • Extraversion or Introversion: our source of energy: 
      • The person who has a preference for Extraversion gets his energy from the outside world. 
      • The person who has a preference for the Introversion will seek his energy in moments of calm and withdrawal.
    • Sensation or Intuition: 
      • Sensation is the function we use when we perceive information in a sensory, sequential way by focusing on factual and tangible reality (present or past). 
      • Intuition is the function we use when we link information, focusing on opportunities, links, projecting into the future, or making connections between past, present, and future. 
    • Thinking or Feeling: 
      • Thinking is the function we use when we make decisions based on logical criteria. 
      • Feeling is the function we use when we make decisions based on subjective criteria (agreement with a value system or taking into account the impact of the decision on the other - others).
    • Judgment or Perception: 
      • The preference for Judgment or Perception is an attitude that influences our way of organizing our life, in the external world, (our professional organization, private ...). 
      • The Judgment is looking for structure, predictability and continuity, where Perception seeks rather adaptability, variability. 
      • These preferences also have a significant influence on how we communicate.
