Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The MBTI Career Report is designed to identify personality type and use that information to explore careers. It is based on the belief that individuals are most satisfied and successful in jobs that allow them to use their natural preferences. Personality type is a way of determining those preferences and which occupations may provide the greatest opportunity for expression.
