Ways to Take the MBTI® Assessment

I want to take the MBTI® assessment. What are my options?

Since the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is a psychological assessment; it is restricted for use by certified professionals. You will need to find a practitioner who is certified to administer the MBTI instrument to you. The cost to take the MBTI assessment varies depending on who gives it to you. There is also an online option.

How can I find someone to give me the MBTI® instrument?

If you are in the USA, an advising or counseling service at a local university or college may be able to suggest a person in private practice in the community who uses the MBTI assessment. You can also find MBTI professionals in your geographic area through the referral lists on the MBTI® Master Practitioner Referral Network. You can also take the assessment online at

If you are not in the USA you can find a distributor in your country through the The Myers-Briggs Company website. The Myers-Briggs Company licenses the international distributors worldwide who provide MBTI training, translations, and support materials. Contact the distributor in your area and ask if they will assist you in arranging to take the MBTI assessment. If there is no distributor in your area contact the MBTI publisher at ; they will be able to assist you with your request.

How do I find a certified administrator to come to my organization?

You can arrange with a professional to come in, give the MBTI assessment, and follow-up later with feedback to the group, and possibly individually with each member. An advising or counseling service at a local university or college may be able to suggest a person in private practice in the community who uses the MBTI tool. You can also find certified professionals in your geographic area through the referral lists at the MBTI® Master Practitioner Referral Network.
