Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The morning began with a welcome ceremony for Br Eric Anguolo, who has just joined the OP from Ghana.  During the ceremony, his biography was read and he was presented with a Maasai shawl and a welcome letter.

Sunil then began a three-day workshop on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).  The entire workshop was run in a most creative and interactive manner.  He began by giving a brief historical background on the creation of the MBTI, stressing both the work of Carl Jung and of Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers.

He stressed that the MBTI is not a test but rather an indication .  It does not measure intelligence, maturity or emotional health.  Sunil stressed that the questionnaire has no right or wrong answers, and that all the types have potential strengths and blind spots

Sunil then went on to explain the Extraversion (E) and Introversion (I) indicators, showing how the former is drawn towards the outer world, while the latter is more drawn towards the inner world.  He explained that the extravert gets energy by doing things and being active, while the introvert gets energy taking time alone. Again the E has broad interests in many things, while the I focuses more in depth on a fewer number of interests.
