Interactive Feedback

MBTI® results are provided to you by a certified administrator as part of an interactive discussion. This feedback can take place in a class or workshop, in a person-to-person session, or phone, or through an interactive web experience. Only after this session and after you have verified your own best-fit type, do you receive a copy of your results.

The Benefits of Interactive Feedback

  • Without the simple basics of what type means, you may misunderstand terms and interpretations, coming away with a very different message than the one intended for the use of the MBTI instrument. A trained practitioner helps a person understand type theory and use, so the results are helpful.

  • Experience has shown that if you receive your results by mail or e-mail, you will probably just accept those results as correct. You may not engage in the exploration and discussion that can lead to either acceptance of the reported results or the identification of another type that fits you best. The MBTI results may not accurately reflect your type for several reasons. A trained person can help you explore whether the type fits, look at other type descriptions, and identify the type that fits you best.

  • Every person uses the knowledge of his or her type in different ways. To some, it is not immediately clear how type plays for them; they may need assistance in exploring how they might use type information in their individual lives, careers, and relationships.

  • Once you determine which type you think you are, your preferences can be analyzed for much more than just a combination of four letters. A trained person can show you this deeper view of type and what it might mean for you.

All this can be accomplished only through a back-and-forth discussion between you and a person who knows type well.

Without such interactive feedback, you may miss some keys to the benefits of using type at home, at work and even at play. Feedback also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the interplay of preferences, often called type dynamics.
