This inventoryIs designed to love youTo discover your preferred type or natural preferences in dealing with both your inner and outer worlds when you are at work. While the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is validated instrument that provides your overall psychological type across all of your life’s activities, the exercise that you will do below is oriented specifically toward your working life.  It is most important that you answer  the questions according to the way you really behave in the work situations described. Avoid thinking about the way you wish you behaved, or think you ought to act, or think your boss would like you to act. Think always, ” This is the way I actually behave — this is how I think, or act, or decide, or choose in this particular situation.” Answer the questions as honestly and as objectively as possible. The closer you come to the truth about how you actually behave, the more useful the information will be to you and to improve your future.
