In this series of articles I am going to help you, a college instructor, improve you teaching by getting to know yourself better. You will better understand your own personality and how your traits impact your job as a college teacher.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®)
The official Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) assessment is available online for a nominal fee. If you want absolute accuracy and professional evaluation, this is the route for you. There are also a few free assessments online, most of which require you to register and provide your email address.
A book I highly recommend, Do What You Are – Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type, provides in depth information about the MBTI personality types and helps readers make their own determination based on which type fits them best.
Based on information in this book, I have constructor the following personality type assessment. It takes only a few minutes to complete the survey, and you results appear immediately. While I claim none of the validity that you get when you pay for the official assessment, those who have taken it vouch for its accuracy.
Enter a number from 1 to 5 after each statement to indicate your level of agreement. Then continue to scroll down to find your MBTI personality type.
- (1) Strongly Disagree
- (2) Somewhat Disagree
- (3) Neutral
- (4) Somewhat Agree
