I was introduced to the MBTI® assessment during grad school when my wife was going through her own graduate program; MFCC (MFT). She fell in love with the instrument and of course I had to take it! She was shocked at my result when I came out as an ISTJ. As I reflect on how I took it and my mind-set at the time, I was either not clearly instructed in how to take it or I didn’t know myself well enough to identify my own preferences. In defense of my wife, I believe it was the latter. I was answering in ways that I thought I should. Today I am definitely sure that I am an INFP.
I went through the certification programs for both the MBTI® and the Strong Interest Inventory® assessments shortly after being re-hired. I have used both assessments myself in working with high school students preparing for college and have had wonderful experiences with students who have had some real eye-opening experiences through both assessments.
I look forward to interacting with you all through this blog and our other social media sites.
