The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) is an assessment tool which looks at personality preferences: how we prefer to use our energy, take in and process information, make decisions or come to conclusions, and to manage day-to-day life.
The instrument is a valuable career counseling tool for those who may be unsure of which career path to follow or which major to choose. The instrument is administered, scored, and interpreted by a Qualified MBTI® professional who has completed training with the Association for Psychological Type.
Contact the Career Services Center at 216-687-2233 to schedule an appointment to take the MBTI®.
