MBTI Personality Profiling Workshops

These workshops will give you an insight into your own personality and how you may differ from others. This can help you to gain a better understanding of how to work effectively in a team and will be useful if you are considering a leadership role in the future.

Understanding the similarities and differences between yourself and others will help you to interact positively in group discussions, which are often used during employer assessment days as part of the recruitment process. Personality profiling workshops can also help you to identify the types of work and working environments that you may enjoy.

The profiling tool that is used by the Careers Service is the well established
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
