Are you as fascinated by assessments and quizzes as we are? (I mean, we created a quiz, so obviously we love to nerd out on this stuff!)
It makes sense that most of us are so attracted to personality tests — there’s something innately satisfying and powerful about feeling understood and not alone. When you see a result you resonate with, it immediately makes you feel seen and heard, which is something every human craves.
So, in the name of understanding ourselves better and using that knowledge to pursue a life that feels good, we sat down with Leslie McDaniel, a fellow certified coach and expert on one of the most popular assessments ever: The Myers Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI.
(If you’ve never heard of the MBTI, or don’t know your type, that’s just fine! You’ll likely walk away from this episode with a clear idea of your results, without having taken the assessment yet.)
We got into …
- How the MBTI came to be (it was created by two women in the 1940s!)
- What the results measure, and how to understand the 4 spectrums: Introvert/Extrovert, Sensing/Intuitive, Thinking/Feeling, & Judging/Perceiving.
- Common misconceptions that people have about their results (we were guilty of some of these!)
- Why it’s so important to understand your personality type, and how you can use it to pursue a life & career that feels aligned with who you are (rather than contrary to who you are).
