Type and Career—Assumptions

Type and Career—Assumptions

Some people assume that taking the MBTI® assessment means that they will learn exactly who or what they should be. This is not the case. There is no magic pill, and anyone who assumes that one instrument (any instrument) can tell you what you should or not do will be disappointed.

Personality type is an important part of the puzzle in finding who we are, but we also need to consider factors such as physical and mental health, interests, values, family circumstances, geographic location, job market conditions, and so on. This seems daunting. Sure, it would be nice if there were an easier answer, but there is not.

To learn more, take a look at the MBTI® Manual: A Guide to the Development and Use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Instrument (3rd edition).
