Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is a self-reporting forced-choice question­naire designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life.  This ques­tionnaire was developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katherine Briggs over a 30 year period and the accuracy of the results have been verified over the past 50 years of use.  MBTI results identify valuable differences  between normal, healthy people, differences that can be a source of much misunderstanding and miscommunication.

Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator®

The Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator® was built on the proven foundation of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® developed by Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs is a type indicator for children in grades 2 – 8.

All children are unique.  Among the most important differences are those associated with psychological type, i.e. how children absorb information about their environment and how they then order and make decisions about that information.

When each child is given the freedom to use the strengths of his or her psychological type without constraint, then development is steady, sound and sure.

Families can use the information about psychological type to create an environment of tolerance, support, and healthy conflict resolution.  By understanding the differences, intelligent choices can be made for the rearing, teaching and counselling of children.  It can enable children to understand themselves and recognize their qualities while recognizing and respecting those who are different and by identifying individual strengths develop self-esteem, achievement and social interaction.  This knowledge can facilitate improved relationships between children, their teachers, parents and friends.

In order for the process to be effective the parents, siblings and teachers should have a basic knowledge of psychological type and have taken the Myers-Briggs.

It is important to understand that this indicator does not measure right or wrong, only type preference.

Strong Interest Inventory®

The Strong Interest Inventory® measures a person’s interest on a broad range of occupations, work and leisure activities, and school subjects.  The questionnaire compares how these interests are similar to the interests of people successfully employed in those occupations.

It is used primarily to help people understand their work interests and to illustrate the kinds of work in which they might feel comfortable.

What Does it Provide?

The computer-generated results provide:

  • Six general occupational themes which reflect the person’s overall orientation to work
  • 211 occupational scales which indicate the degree of similarity between the respondent’s interests and the common characteristics of people working in those occupations
  • 25 basic interest scales which report consistency of interests or dislikes in specific areas, such as computer activities, science and public speaking
  • Four personal style scales which measure how an individual likes to learn, work, assume leadership and take risks
