Meyers and briggs research institute Meyers and Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.
The 16 personality types of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument are listed here as they are often shown in what is called a “type table.” ISTJ, ISFJ, INFJ, INTJ ISTP, ISFP,INFP,INTP ESTJ,ESFJ,ENFJ,ENTJ ESTP,ESFP,ENFP,ENTP Where, E-extraversion I-Introversion S-sensing N-Intuition T-Thinking F-Feeling J-Judging P- Perceiving
LEADERSHIP REPORT• Using the FIRO-B( fundamental interpersonal relations- orientation-behavior) and MBTI Indicator.
Leaders develop relationships with each member of work group High quality relationship member is part of “in-group” more responsibility, higher satisfaction Low quality relationship member is part of “out-group” less responsibility, lower satisfaction
AIM OF THE STUDY• To explore and expand the understanding of the leadership style people• show in an organization and how others might perceive and react to it.• recognize that each person has both strengths and possible blind spots• allow for wide divergence in people’s views, attitudes, values, and behaviors• see different operating styles as an opportunity to bring diverse talents and strengths together in an organization.• use leadership approaches that match the situation and people’s differing needs, in spite of your own
• The FIRO-B instrument measures the extent to which people attempt to satisfy three basic social needs:Inclusion (participation, recognition, belonging),Control (power, authority, influence), andAffection(openness, warmth, closeness). The FIRO-Btool reports on how much one initiates behavior in thesethree areas (Expressed Behavior) and how much onewould like others to initiate that behavior toward them(Wanted Behavior)
• EXPRESSED BEHAVIOR- WANTED BEHAVIOR-• INCLUSION-6 (10) INCLUSION-4 (10)• CONTROL-9 (13) CONTROL- 4 (13)• AFFECTION-1 (2) AFFECTION- 1 (2)• TOTAL EB POINTS-16 (25) TOTAL WB POINTS-9(25)• Level of Overall Interpersonal Needs: MEDIUM-LOW• Strongest Interpersonal Need: CONTROL• RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BEHAVIORS: Expressed is greater than Wanted
ANALYSIS• Overall Interpersonal Needs score (25) falls in the medium-low range. This result suggests that peoples involvement with others may sometimes be a source of satisfaction, depending on the people and context.• Total Expressed Behavior and Total Wanted Behavior scores are both in the medium range (16 and 9, respectively). These results suggest that people sometimes initiate action and work proactively with others and at other times are more comfortable being reactive to and reliant on others.
suggestions• Inclusion needs by-• talking and joking with others.• taking a personal interest in others• Control needs by-• assuming positions of authority• advancing your ideas within the group.• taking a competitive stance and making winning a priority.• Affection needs by-• supporting colleagues verbally and physically• giving gifts to show appreciation
MBTI RESULTS• The MBTI instrument describes four pairs of opposite preferences, called dichotomies. All eight preferences are valuable, and everyone uses each of them at least some of the time.• The MBTI preferences for a LEADER are-• E-Extraversion• N-Intuition• T-Thinking• J-Judging
EFFECTS OF PREFERENCES IN WORK SETTINGS• Extraversion [E] -• Like variety and action• Are often impatient with long, slow jobs• Are interested in the activities of your work and in how other people do them.• Act quickly, sometimes without thinking.• Intuition [N]-• Like solving new, complex problems.• Enjoy learning a new skill more than using it• May follow your inspirations, good or bad• May make errors of fact
• Thinking [T]-• Use logical analysis to reach conclusions.• Can work without harmony.• May hurt people’s feelings without knowing it.• Tend to decide impersonally.• Judging [J]-• Work best when you can plan your work and follow your plan.• Like to get things settled and finished.• May not notice new things that need to be done.• Tend to be satisfied once you reach a decision on a thing, situation, or person.
INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS• Although the MBTI instrument shows that People have a preference for Extraversion, the overall interpersonal needs are in the medium-low range. This combination of results suggests that they enjoy the social aspects of work but keep their interactions focused on a particular group of individuals.• People may have learned to limit interpersonal activity over time because of the organization’s work culture which may be very unit oriented and doesn’t encourage the use of groups and teams. He may also be the type of person who enjoys interacting with others but does not like to rely on relationships or groups to get things done. He may enjoy being included in groups, but feel inhibited in bringing people together yourself.
AIM• This report is designed to understand the results on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment. Your responses to the MBTI items indicate that the four-letter type code is:• ENFP• Extraverted Intuition with Feeling
TYPE DESCRIPTION-• ENFP-• Warmly enthusiastic and imaginative• See life as full of possibilities• Make connections between events and information very quickly, and confidently proceed based on the patterns they see• Want a lot of affirmation from others, and readily give appreciation and support• Spontaneous and flexible, often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency
UNIQUE PATTERN PREFERENCES ENFPs like and use Intuition first and Feeling second. Theirthird favored process is Thinking, and their• least preferred is Sensing. Youth is the time for ENFPs to develop Intuition and Feeling. At midlife,• Thinking and Sensing often become more interesting and easier to use.• #1 Intuition Most preferred• #2 Feeling Second most preferred• #3 Thinking Third most preferred• #4 Sensing Least preferred
CLARITY OF PREFERENCESMBTI responses also indicate the clarity of yourpreferences, that is, how clear you were in selectingeach preference over its opposite. This is known asthe preference clarity index, or pci.Because MBTI results are subject to a variety ofinfluences, such as work tasks, familydemands, and other factors, they need to beindividually verified.
WORK STYLE-• ENFP Snapshot:• ENFPs are enthusiastic, insightful, innovative, versatile, and tireless in pursuit• of new possibilities. They enjoy working on teams to bring about change related• to making things better for people.• Creative• Curious• Energetic• Enthusiastic• Expressive• Friendly• Imaginative• Independent
PROBLEM SOLVING APPROACH-• 1. When solving a problem or making a decision, you are most likely to start with your dominant function ,INTUITION, by asking:• What interpretations can be made from the facts?• What insights and hunches come to mind about this situation?• What would the possibilities be if there were no restrictions?• May then proceed to the #2 function, FEELING, and ask:• How will the outcome affect the people, the process, and/or the organization?• What is my personal reaction to (my likes/dislikes about) each alternative?
• Not as likely to ask questions related to #3 function, THINKING, such as:• What are the pros and cons of each alternative?• What are the logical consequences of the options?• What are the objective criteria that need to be satisfied?• Are least likely to ask questions related to #4 function, SENSING, such as:• How did we get into this situation?• What are the verifiable facts?• What exactly is the situation now?
AIMThis report applies the results from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment to helpus identify job families and occupations that are agood fit for the reported MBTI type.• The responses on the MBTI instrument indicate that the reported type is: ENFP.

MBTI PERSONALITY TYPE• The MBTI identifies 16 personality types. The letters that make up the type are derived from the four scales of the MBTI. The results indicate that type is ESTJ.• ESTJs like to take charge and organize tasks and people to accomplish well-defined, tangible goals. Their firm grasp of the relevant details and facts enables them to proceed methodically, working step by step toward their goal. They tend to rely on experience and common sense and sometimes have little patience for abstractions. Active and outgoing people who enjoy directing and delegating to others, ESTJs are often found in management and administrative positions.
Type and Entrepreneurship• Based on the MBTI results of a sample of female small business owners and a small sample of female entrepreneurs whose businesses made the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing small companies. It was found that ESTJ women are more than twice as likely as would be expected to become small business owners given the percentage of ESTJs among U.S. women. In addition, ESTJ women are somewhat more likely than would be expected to found one of the fastest growing small companies.
YOUR STRONG INTERESTS• The Strong Interest Inventory measures interests by comparing the results on the inventory with the results of diverse samples of employed people who are experienced in and satisfied with their careers. This Entrepreneur Report will specifically compare the interests with the interests of small business owners who are satisfied or very satisfied in their careers.
A Snapshot of Small BusinessOwners (SBOs)• A national sample of 206 women who own and run small businesses responded to the items on the Strong. Throughout this report, are being compared with these women—small business owners of the same gender as yourself—because research has shown that women’s and men’s interests differ, even within the same occupation. Research has also suggested that female and male small business owners differ in their motives for owning a business, in the kind of business they choose, and in their managerial style.
General Occupational ThemeResults• The Strong’s General Occupational Themes represent six types of people and work environments.• CONVENTIONAL (C)• ENTERPRISING (E)• ARTISTIC (A)• SOCIAL (S)• REALISTIC (R)• INVESTIGATIVE (I)
PERSONAL STYLES AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP• The Strong Personal Style Scales identify styles that may affect how you would run a business.• Small business owners, like women in the general population, are more interested in working with people than with ideas, data, or things. Your score is near the middle of this scale, but still within the range of small business owners. You may find that alternating between working alone with ideas, data, or things and working with others is a good balance for you.• Small business owners have more interest in practical, on- the-job learning than do women in general. You also prefer learning on the job.
