Taking Inventory of Myers-Briggs
From its humble family origins during World War II to its spike in
popularity during the 1970s, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
has enjoyed a mostly unchallenged place in the sun. Many in
learning and development tout its capability to provide deft
insight into personality alongside job-fit, coaching requirements,
and organizationwide interaction. One cannot dismiss, however, that
the MBTI is fundamentally a toolan implement among several others.
And by its nature, it is not above reproach as changes in the
workplace and society stipulate new kinds of insight into
individuals and working relationships.
