Never had the opportunity* to take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment?
If so, Columbia Business School Alumni Career Services offers alumni subsidized MBTI assessment workshops for $35. This offering includes the Form M Myers Briggs assessment and a small group results interpretation session with customized career reports.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self-report questionnaire for understanding one's preferences and personality. The MBTI is used by 79% of Fortune 100 companies and has been taken by over 50 million people, making it the world’s most widely used assessment instrument.
When we understand our type preferences, we can approach our own work in a manner that best suits our style, including how we manage our time, problem solving, decision making, and dealing with stress. Knowledge of type can help us deal with our work culture, the development of new skills, understanding our participation on teams, and coping with change in the workplace.
For those of us whose work involves persuading or selling, knowledge of type can be helpful in understanding what clients and colleagues need from us, especially how they best like to learn about products and services and how they like to interact during the process of gathering information and making decisions.

The MBTI helps you understand your preferences for communicating and dealing with information. These preferences include:
• where you focus your attention - outer world or inner world (Extroversion vs. Introversion scale)
• how you prefer to take in information or find out about things (Sensing vs. Intuition scale)
• how you prefer to make decisions (Thinking vs. Feeling scale)
• how you are oriented toward the outer world (Judging vs. Perceiving scale)
The MBTI is used extensively in organizations as a tool to:
• help employees better understand themselves, their strengths, and their own personal preferences
• help employees better understand and appreciate individual differences in others - and their preferences
• help employees learn to use their particular type to their own best advantage in dealing with others
• help employees become more effective communicators by understanding personality types better
• help employees improve their interpersonal communication
• facilitate work group functioning
• enhance individual performance in the workplace
