How do you know who to put on what projects and why? Do you often hear you come across too abrupt at meetings or you don’t speak up enough? Or, do you prefer people that are like you or people that are different?
On Wednesday May 29, attendees dug deep into their minds to discover their Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicators (MBTI) and learn how to be aware of their personality traits for better results at work and at home.
Jennifer Ng Ain Kin, a senior member of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and CATA WIT (Women in Technology) Mentor of the Year Award winner, has analyzed and implemented MBTI throughout her career and even uses MBTI when interviewing candidates at her current job.
After learning about MBTI and examples of Jennifer’s personal and work-related situations where personality traits are affected, attendees were given this MBTI questionnaire to help determine their personality traits and learn how they can handle situations effectively and for better results. Attendees then compared their results with those of Star Wars characters.
Jennifer recommends the following resources:
Type Talk at Work (book)
Please Understand Me II (book)
Unofficial online MBTI Test (website)
The official MBTI site (website)
