Link to a refreshing read

I was delighted to come across an article recently which, rather than promote the virtues of the well-established personality test, MBTI, gave an alternative view.

What a refreshing read.

MBTI (Myers -Briggs Type Indicator) is a tool which categorises you into one of 16 distinctive personality types. I’ve often struggled with being put into a box. I don’t mind the occasional label but they too are often hard to shake off. I won’t name them here, but there are tools which are far more powerful and more, let’s say, enlightening when it comes to developing others.

But for now here’s a link to the article (by Prof Adam Grant). Read and enjoy!
