As you know with MBTI, we often look at life with our own sort of “filter.” We see things a certain way due to our unique personality type.
It can be hard to adjust our thinking and vision to realize that others may not see life in the same way we do.
But do we stereotype people based on their MBTIs?!
It can be easy to fall into generalizations that you believe to know to be true about certain types. Everyone does it.
Oftentimes, many of these generalizations are untrue or even inaccurate if you have not consulted a trained professional to learn more about what each particular MBTI type means.
These judgments or preconceived notions you have about personality types may actually cause negative effects to your team rather than the positive productivity that can come with understanding your employee's types.
I like to think about "type" like "handed-ness".
Most of us are typically dominant in one hand over the other. That doesn't mean that we don't ever use the other hand. Quite the opposite.
This is also true with "type".
Without verification, training and education around type and its practical uses, people can easily get pigeonholed and underpromoted because of common "stereotypes" or generalizations that are often hastily assumed about types.
Every single personality type is different, especially for different people.
It is important that we understand who a person is and how this person works effectively, that is if we want to have successful teams and productive workplace environments.
That is why working with a trained professional will not only help you verify results, but also help you apply the knowledge in profound and effective ways.
And never has this been more true or applicable than now, when so much work is being done remotely and it has become necessary to manage from afar.
That is why my "Rite Type" Coaching is so effective, it all comes down to understanding what your MBTI actually means and how it can benefit your work and your life.
