Type knowledge can be used for many different applications. In relationships, change processes, personal and professional development, coaching, stress management, communication - you name it.

Once you take the MBTI questionnaire, the result will be displayed in the form of a report. Below are some reports to give you an idea of what you'd get.

I always recommend getting a manual to supplement the report - in case your reported Type isn't a good fit, or if you're curious to learn about how people with other Type preferences would approach a certain situation. Again, some sample manuals are linked below.

Sample Reports:

MBTI® Step I Basic Profile

The MBTI® Step I Basic Profile provides a summary of MBTI results, allowing for basic feedback. It provides reported type, explanations of the preferences, characteristics frequently associated with the type, and an easy-to-read graph displaying the preference clarity index.

Recommended in conjunction with specialized booklet exploring the area of interest.

Step II™ Interpretive Report

Developed by Naomi L. Quenk and Jean M. Kummerow, the Step II™ Interpretive Report is a highly personalized narrative and graphic report that helps clients understand and apply their MBTI® results. It describes in detail the client's four-letter personality type as well as the results of another 20 facets, giving a more detailed insight into and adding understanding of the personality preference. These results are applied to four components of professional development inherent to national and international relocation: communication, change management, decision making, and conflict management. The report describes the client's style in these four areas and suggests ways of using that style more effectively.

Highly recommended for expats and executive coaching.
