Self- and Other-Awareness

Personality Type & Culture Coaching

 

We come into the world with a predisposition to use our brains in a certain way. Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung first stipulated his theory of psychological types in the 1920s; American mother-daughter pair Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs-Myers have been making it accessible through their questionnaire since the 1940s.

Understanding your preferences for Extraversion or Introversion, Sensing or Intuiting, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving offer valuable insights into how you communicate, manage stress, handle change, and interact in personal and professional relationships. The place and time where we grow up influences how we learn to express our preferences in a societally acceptable manner. That's why I'm on record as saying Type doesn't explain everything, and neither does Culture, but taken together, they provide a more complete picture.

PLEASE NOTE:

Coaching is not yet a defined profession, so there are many people out there who call themselves Coach without proper training.

I was accredited by a German institute in coaching, I hold a BA in Human Resources Management, I'm an MBTI® Master Practitioner, certified in the Berens CORE™ Approach and the Neuroscience of Personality. I've lived in five countries over the past 20 years, and have work experience in corporate Germany, UK, Spain, and America. I've also started my own business and sub-contract with global service providers. I love to read books and blogs in a variety of fields, and when you coach with me you can pick my brains whichever way you like. I'm happy to share what I know and introduce you to my network.

Ethical Guidelines for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Instrument


Ethical Guidelines for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Instrument


  1. Identify type theory as the work of C.G. Jung and the instrument as the work of Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine C. Briggs.
  2. Present psychological type as describing healthy personality differences, not psychological disorders or fixed traits.
  3. Be adamant that all types are valuable: no type is better, healthier, or more desirable in any way.
  4. Describe preference and types in nonjudgmental terms at all times; be aware of how your own type biases may influence your words.
  5. Present type preferences as tendencies, preferences, or inclinations, rather than absolutes.
  6. Stress that type does not imply excellence, competence, or natural ability, only what is preferred.
  7. Never imply that all people of a certain type behave in the same way; type should not encourage stereotyping or be used to put people in rigid categories.
  8. Explain how people sometimes act in ways contrary to their preferences because of pressure from family, relationships, job environment, or culture. Consistent forced use of non preferences can cause stress.
  9. When describing preferences, distinguish between what has been shown by research and what are anecdotes to illustrate type.
  10. Provide appropriate interpretation of the MBTI®results for each and every administration of the MBTI instrument.
  11. It is unethical and in many cases illegal to require job applicants to take the Indicator if the results will be used to screen out applicants. The administrator should not counsel a person to, or away from, a particular career, personal relationship or activity based solely upon type information.

These guidelines are based on a collaborative effort between the Myers and Briggs Foundation, CPP, Inc., the Center for Applications of Psychological Type, CAPT, Inc., and the Association for Psychological Type International, APTi.
