Information : Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) has implemented the use of Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) analysis to help strengthen inter-depot communications and improve and foster teamwork. Briefly, MBTI classifies individuals into 16 different personality types and profiles the characteristics associated with each type of personality. The ultimate goal is to help Depot employees increase their self-development in skills that can be used both at work and other settings. MBTI is the first in a series of four courses that CCAD is using in training Depot personnel for new work environments and new ways of conducting business.
The Depot offers a two-day initial workshop to profile employees and explain the differences in personality types of normal, healthy people. Follow-on MBTI courses are offered to employees to strengthen the application of MBTI analysis. The ultimate objective is to train a more flexible and effective workforce. The MBTI is not a panacea. For example, it will not solve severe personality quirks. It is a powerful tool in fostering a better understanding of people’s traits and how this understanding can help create a more effective workplace. MBTI, created by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, has been available to the public since 1975. CCAD has been using MBTI effectively since 1996. It is part of an overall Depot commitment to improve interpersonal relationships and promote effective teamwork.
