Team Typing Assessments in Team Building

Team type assessments such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can be used to improve understanding of individuals' strengths, weaknesses and contributions to the team.

The MBTI assessment helps individual to discover normal differences in 4 aspects of behaviour:Four different MBTI preferences

  • Extroversion / Introversion - energy source
  • Sensing / iNtuition - information gathering
  • Thinking / Feeling - decision making
  • Judging / Perceiving – preferred lifestyle

The Myers Briggs team type tool to assist the team to better understand how each team member prefers to communicate, problem solve, plan and evaluate. 

This understanding allows participants to appreciate and learn how to capitalise on personal strengths and the strengths of others, supplement and augment areas they may overlook and areas that do not come easily to them.

There is a MBTI team report which is informative about the whole team and their type, as well as blind spots and decision making processes.
