The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® has helped millions of people get a better sense of where they might fit in the world of work. Unfortunately, it’s still mistakenly used to predict job performance, even during interviews. No career assessment will give a full and accurate picture of specific careers or work environments that you should pursue, and it’s not a guarantee for choosing who to hire. The Myers-Briggs CAN be used to help a candidate understand the challenges of the role, and integrate more effectively into the team or work environment. It can also help the organization diversify. As a job seeker – knowing your Myers-Briggs type can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses and how to successfully market yourself during the interview.
Myers-Briggs Question Corner is the weekly MBTI career podcast brought to you by DC Metro Career Counselor Edythe Richards.
