Most savvy individuals and organizations will tell you that knowing as much as possible about yourself and those with whom you work is essential for success. As a result, a number of instruments have been developed to deliver this information.
The most popular of these is the Myers Briggs, which gives the user information on communication style, attention to detail, decision-making, and how one deals with change.
Unfortunately, there are several problems with the manner in which this information is delivered:
1. The language used to describe the different personality types (such as sensor, judger, and perceiver) is archaic and less than clear. For example, "sensor doesnt mean sensitive, "judger doesnt mean judgmental, and "perceiver doesnt describe someone who is perceptive.
2. There is somewhat of an all-or-nothing method of classification. In other words, one person could be scored as an ENFP (extravert, intuitive, feeler, perceiver) while another could come out as an ISTJ (introvert, sensor, thinker, judger). These individuals would seem to have exactly the opposite personality types, even though their scores could possibly be only a few points apart.
3. Of course, there are the four-letter codes themselves which are not only hard to interpret, but even harder to remember. It is very common for individuals to leave a Myers-Briggs presentation asking, "Now what was I again... I, N, T, S, L-M-N-O-P??? WHAT?!?!?!
4. Finally, the way that the information is displayed (a chart with 16 different boxes) is confusing, especially if you are wanting to get a snapshot of what is going on with your team or department.
So, what can be done? Is there a way to deliver this vital information on communication style, decision-making, etc., in a manner that is both clear and accurate? The answer is yes!...
