Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) identifies your preferences and provides information about your unique type (there are 16 distinct types). Understanding your personality type/preferences is the foundation of major exploration and this is a great tool for helping you to understand who you are as well as what majors would be a good fit for you. The MBTI gives you information about how you orient in the world, take in information, make decisions and structure your life. View a sample MBTI Career Report.
