McCaulley, Mary H.
This monograph is an overview and state of the art paper for the use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in the health professions. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a questionnaire which makes it possible to test and put to practical use that part of the personality theory of C.G. Jung which is concerned with psychological type. Nine areas of interest in studying type differences in careers are listed. The sections of this monograph cover the following areas: types of students interested in health professions; type differences in educating and training people to enter the health care delivery system at all levels; and type differences in specialists in the health professions.
