Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in the Social Work Classroom.
Aviles, Christopher B.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the most popular measures of personality available today and has been taken by over 12 million people. The MBTI has been successfully utilized for personal and marriage counseling, conflict and stress management, and understanding learning styles. It is perfect for the social work classroom because it does not measure sickness or pathology and the results are non-judgmental. The test can be quickly scored and the results have helped social work students to increase their self awareness. This workshop presents the background, purpose, and results of the MBTI and provides examples of how the MBTI can be utilized in social work classrooms. Ordering information and cautions in utilizing the MBTI are addressed to help social work educators consider utilizing it in their classrooms. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/JDM)
