The article focuses on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a personality questionnaire used in areas such as group dynamics, leadership training and personal development. Using this instrument and a consultation session with a qualified MBTI assessor, subjects find their personality type. According to Marielena Sabatier, co-founder of executive coaching company Inspiring Potential, the MBTI test is a starting point in the process of helping people understand themselves and others.
