The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, one of the most trusted and widely used personality assessments in the world, has been utilized in numerous settings including career development, education, psychotherapy and corporate team development.
Even job placement firms and career counseling centers will factor in a person’s MBTI personality type when advising them on the best job fit.
With the reputation MBTI has garnered in the professional and business ranks, it is no wonder it has become a trusted source for Generation Z graduates who will shortly be entering the work force, not to mention younger college bound students.
