About this course
The purpose of this course is to extend your knowledge of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and particularly, to give you information that will help you work with coaching or counselling clients - though not necessarily career counselling clients - more effectively. We look briefly at the potential uses of the MBTI in coaching/counselling or related activities and what the potential pitfalls are. Then we offer a short explanation of what each of the 16 types typically needs in order to become more effective in their type. We assume that you are familiar with the basics of the MBTI already. If you are not, we recommend you have a look at the section about the MBTI in the course “Overview of the Principal Personality Tests.” Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to: List at least eight potential applications of the MBTI; Identify at least three potential pitfalls of using psychological type with clients and; For each of the 16 types, name at least one typical area of developmental need and a proposed solution with which a counsellor or coach may be able to assist a client.
