  12. 12. TYPE TABLE
  13. 13. ADVANTAGES OF MBTI  Self awareness for better self- management  Identification of behaviour trends that have positive outcomes  Identification of behaviour trends that have less desirable outcomes  Link trends with other data points to clarify personal or professional developmental opportunities
  14. 14. DISADVANTAGES OF MBTI  Trying to predict others behaviour  Trying to estimate another individual type (eg. You must be an extravert because you are so gregarious)  Assuming that how a preference plays for you is exactly how it would play out for someone else  Justifying behavior (eg. Declaring that the individual must be P because he is always late)
