Type in Everyday Life

"Good type development can be achieved at any age by anyone who cares to understand his or her own gifts and the appropriate use of those gifts."
Isabel Briggs Myers
Type Use in the Professions

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument has been extensively studied in various professions. Many books and articles have been written about the use of type in professional situations.

The MBTI® Instrument and Health Care Professionals

When health care professionals understand personality type they have a constructive framework for better understanding what both the patient and family members need. With knowledge of the sixteen types, health care providers can adjust communication and better explain the appropriate care programs that best suit the patient. Personality type can assist health care professionals in many ways, including: learning how to be flexible with patients, understanding their reactions to disease, appreciating how they experience stress, determining patient compliance with protocols, and knowing how best to deliver challenging medical news.

The MBTI® Instrument and Legal Professionals

Personality type has been studied extensively in the legal profession and with law students. Legal professionals have also used the concept of personality type to further understand jury members and their listening and communication preferences.

For additional information about how personality type is used by other professions, you can do a search of the Mary and Isabel's Library online MILO developed and maintained by the Center for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT®).
