Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®
Personality is a significant factor in career decision-making. For example, ability testing may indicate a career in engineering, but the personality testing could indicate the need to serve people. It is crucial that both abilities and personal style be the foundation of a career development strategy. The expanded version of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is included in the 4-hour testing process. The results are integrated into the client report. During the two-hour feedback, specific career fields and roles within those fields are suggested.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for taking the time with Michael! He called Friday evening and talked with his mom and then with both of us for over an hour on Saturday morning. He is excited about new directions, or at least having the directions he has felt drawn to validated. He told us that after sharing the feedback with his girlfriend that she want to do the program.
As parents, Betsy and I always have a little worry that something we strongly recommend won’t deliver for our kids what we expect (or hope) that it will. His gushing enthusiasm was beyond what we had hoped for. I couldn’t help asking if he now saw why I wanted him to talk with you, and his response was “Oh my gosh! Yes!” C.H.Virginia State legislator
