The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a widely recognized personality assessment that can provide valuable insights into an individual's natural preferences, strengths, and areas for growth. Taking the MBTI assessment can be an essential step in understanding oneself better and developing a greater sense of self-awareness. Here at BYU–Hawaii, we offer this assessment to help guide students who may be looking for additional support in creating a vision for their future. It may also be helpful to them to select a major, or minor or even provide some confidence in their major selection. It is just a tool to hopefully provide some guidance.

Knowing your MBTI type can help you make more informed decisions about your career, relationships, and personal growth. By understanding your natural tendencies, you can identify areas where you excel (strengths) and areas where you may need to work harder (weaknesses) to achieve success. You can also gain a deeper understanding of how you communicate and interact with others, which can improve your relationships and help you work more effectively in team settings. In short, taking the MBTI assessment can be an important tool in helping you achieve your personal and professional goals.

MBTI Assessment and Review

Through a series of questions, the MBTI assessment helps you identify your natural preferences in four areas of personality:

  • How do you direct and receive energy?
  • How do you take in information?
  • How do you decide and come to conclusions?
  • How do you approach the outside world?

Your natural preferences in these four areas sort you into one of 16 distinct MBTI personality types. Understanding these types gives you objective insight that you can use to enhance your professional and personal relationships, as well as your direction, focus, and choices.

If you are interested in learning more about the MBTI assessment, please follow these steps. The assessment is offered to our students for free.

MBTI Assessment Steps

To start your MBTI assessment, make an appointment with one of our career mentors in the Studio for your introduction to MBTI types.

  1. Step I – Introduction to MBTI:
    1. The student will be introduced to the 16 MBTI types (dichotomies).
      1. A video will be provided to help the student understand more about MBTI.
  2. Step II – Best Fit:
    1. The student will review with a career mentor their best-fit type. This will be one of 16 types.
      1. A description of the type the student selects will be provided via a printout of the type. That printout should be brought with the student to Step III the review.
    2. Take the assessment online on the Myers Briggs website. As a reminder when students take the assessment, they should answer the questions as if no one was impacting or affecting their decision. The purpose of the assessment is to gather their innate responses to the questions. Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. Usually, the first response that comes to mind is the response that is preferred.
  3. Step III – Review:
    1. The student will set up an appointment with one of our MBTI reviewers. The student will review their selected best-fit type with the reviewer and will go over the results of the assessment to compare with students' selected best-fit type.
    2. The student's MBTI report will be provided to the upon completion of the review.

Please complete the form below to schedule an appointment with one of our MBTI reviewers or email them directly. Appointments typically last one hour.
