Myers Briggs Step II

“Never stop learning, because life never stops teaching”Myers Briggs Step II

What’s different aboutMyers-Briggs Type Indicator Step II?

MBTI Step II (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®) builds on and goes beyond the popular Myers Briggs Type Indicator Step I framework to uncover the unique individual behind each personality profile (most people that complete Myers Briggs often think that the 4 letter combination provided at Step I IS all Myers Briggs has on offer and whilst it’s an amazing tool, people often don’t realise that there is another level – Step II).

Myers Briggs Step II acts as a catalyst for further enhancing personal and business results by providing focused insight to support detailed development. Many Individuals and organisations look to Step II to provide that additional level of detail, the nuances of personality within type preferences. This depth of insight helps people understand how 2 people can have the same Type (e.g. ESTJ) yet appear, sound or feel very different. Step II highlights how you are different to people of the same type and provides some additional insight into the similarities you may be able to recognised in people who at first sight, might appear to be a different Type – Myers Briggs Step II really will take your understanding of Myers Briggs to the next level.

If you are someone that has worked with your Myers Briggs Type for a while and want to extract even more benefit and value from Myers Briggs, Step II is for you. If you are a practitioner of Myers Briggs Step I I would also recommend completing your Step II Myers Briggs Questionnaire to deepen your knowledge around Psychological Type.

Step II takes the 4 Dimensions of Step I and drills down to a further 5 personality facets for each of the 4 Step I dimensions – giving 20 facets overall.
