Why We Use This Piece
PrepSCO chose the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® after researching different personality assessments. The MBTI® seemed best suited for getting the most useful information about students. At first, PrepSCO used a modified version based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®. After completing the extensive four-day certification through the American Management Association, all coaches are now officially MBTI® Step I and Step II certified.
“Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills.”
In developing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator [instrument], the aim of Isabel Briggs Myers, and her mother, Katharine Briggs, was to make the insights of type theory accessible to individuals and groups.

“There are “fringe benefits” that come with an understanding of Personality Type. Recognizing and understanding your personality type can change the way you see yourself – which in turn affects everything you do and every aspect of your life. Personality Type is so well respected that the majority of Fortune 500 companies use it daily. Over the past twenty years, we’ve used Personality Type to help managers motivate and communicate with their employees; teachers to reach very different types of students; work teams to understand their strengths and weaknesses and to communicate more productively; and, of course, we’ve used it to train thousands of career counselors and outplacement consultants to help their clients make the best career choices. If you are a parent, Type will give you a whole new perspective on your family dynamics and help you understand and communicate better with your children.”
