Adam Ohanesian 11/15/2010 My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or MBTI is a personality typing activity using the Keirsey temperament theory. The MBTI activity consists of four sections, each with two sets of 10 questions. You are to answer each question using a grading system of zero through two, zero being not like you at all, one being somewhat like you, and two being exactly like me. Upon completing each set of 10 questions, you are asked to total your response and whichever section you scored highest in, that contributes to your indicator. Each indicator is a four letter combination of the possible 16 results. I will be writing about MBTI, how I gather and share information, and how my MBTI reflects in my communication style. Next, I will discuss my opposite MBTI, and how I think they would gather and share information. Then I will site an example from work where two different MBTI types conflicted. I was categorized as having an introverting, sensing, feeling, judging or ISFJ MBTI. The result could not be more factual as I have been described as all of these characteristics at some point or another in my life. After reading and reflecting on all the options provided to me, the result did not come as a surprise to me but more of a reassurance that my characteristics are what I have always thought them to be. My MBTI relates to my communication style in various ways. For example, when speaking to someone, I consider how people will feel about how I communicate my thought to them, thus being conscientious which is one of my MBTI character types. I attempt to be conscientious to others feelings and reactions to what I am communicating.

Secondly, I have a memory for details, both in the workplace and at home. When I communicate, I am detailed to avoid confusion or miscommunication. Although some may see this as an annoyance as it takes longer to communicate my point, I would rather be thorough and get my point across and attempt to avoid someone asking me questions. Finally, and I believe is the most important, is being warm, tactful and gentle.
