Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), we will enhance self-understanding by looking at our motivations, natural strengths and potential areas for growth. The MBTI identifies valuable differences among normal people, some of which can be the source of significant misunderstanding. We will discuss how to understand, appreciate and work better with people who differ from and sometimes frustrate us. This course is highly experiential; come prepared to learn by doing. Prerequisite: Attendance at the first session is required, and attendance is expected in all four sessions unless you have an emergency. Materials fee: $21 for the MBTI booklet Introduction to Type, published by Consulting Psychologists Press, to be paid at the first session.
