Abstract : The ACSC is considering adopting a new personality inventory to replace the 20 question survey used in its leadership instruction. The study justifies using personality inventories to identify leadership styles and it compares the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator for consideration by the ACSC. The study concludes the MBTI has better interpretive value for the understanding of leadership styles.
