   BMG341 PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ASSIGNMENT I COMPLETED THE MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDICATOR QUESTIONNAIRE TO IDENTIFY MY PERSONALITY TYPE. THE RESULTS OF THIS QUESTIONNAIRE HAS GIVEN ME THE MEANS TO REFLECT AND ASSESS WHERE I AM IN MY CAREER. Understanding the results of this questionnaire will help me to plan, identify and prioritise the best way forward for me as an individual and ultimately as a professional in the work place. It will guide me in my choosing and identifying on how I should progress, ie whether I should work on my weaknesses or spend the time on developing my strengths. THE RESULTS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE IDENTIFY MY PERSONALITY AS E+S+F+P. EXTROVERT SENSING FEELING PERCEPTION    It is up to each person to recognize his or her true preferences.  Isabel Briggs Myers     Myers' and Briggs' famous tool is still going strong, constantly being improved  The MBTI tool has a long and prestigious history, all of which lead to its huge success today as the world’s most widely used a nd recognised personality tool.  Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers: the creators   The MBTI questionnaire, first published in 1943, was srcinally developed in the United States by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. Katharine Briggs was inspired to start researching personality type theory when she first met Isab el’s future husband, Clarence Myers. Whilst Clarence was a very eligible match for her daughter, Katharine noticed that he had a different way of seeing the world to her and her family, and was intrigued enough to start an extensive literature review based on understanding different temperaments. It was shortly after Carl Jung’s publication of Psychological Types   (1921; 1923 in English) that Katharine realised how closely his theories resembled hers, and how much more developed they were.   Inspiration from Carl Jung   Carl Jung was a renowned Swiss psychiatrist, and is still seen by many, along with Sigmund Freud, as one of the founding fathers of modern-day psychology. His theory of psychological  types proposes that people are innately different, both in terms of the way they see the world and take in information, and how they make decisions. Briggs and Myers thought that these ideas were so useful that they wanted to make them accessible to a wider audience.   Translating the theory into a practical tool   Driven by a desire to help people understand themselves and each other better in a post-war climate, Isabel Myers set about devising a questionnaire that would identify which psychological type a person was. To do this, she enlisted the help of more experienced psychometricians, and her work was later endorsed by professors from the Universities of California, Michigan and Florida. Isabel’s subsequent writings on type and self  -development remain utterly resonant today, both in professional and personal life.   Making the Indicator publicly available   The MBTI questionnaire was first published by the Educational Testing Service, before being taken over by Consulting Psychologists Press (CPP), who still publish the instrument today. After using the questionnaire for some of his earliest development work, Dr Robert McHenry,    Professor of Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, set up Oxford Psychologists Press (OPP), which became the European distributor of the MBTI questionnaire. Since its foundation in 1989, OPP has published fully validated translations of the questionnaire in 14 languages, and completed a significant body of research into its validity, ensuring that it remains a robust tool for users across Europe.    An explosion in popularity   The MBTI questionnaire is now used in situations as diverse as marital counselling and executive development, and has become the world’s most popular personality instrument. Its positive approach to understanding differences is appreciated by the two million people who complete the questionnaire globally every year.
