Abstract:

Understanding people is a skill that can be learned. Although human behavior is complex, we are habituated in many of our responses therefore, we can be trained to observe the pattern of responses--both our own and other peoples patterns. We can become keen observers, listeners, and communicators. We must rely more and more on interpersonal skills in a world of voluminous impersonal information systems. With the high tech invasion comes an increasing need for interpersonal communication to compensate for the impersonal interaction of computer systems. The Myers-Briggs Type Inventory is a non-normative, descriptive instrument to help you understand your own style of communicating and consequently you can apply the concepts to understanding other people, groups, and organizations. The inventory gives a rational set of concepts for what has been the mystery of human behavior. Much apparently random behavior in people is orderly and fairly consistent when you understand the way they prefer to judge and perceive. Four types of information are identified in the inventory life style preferences, information processing, decision-making, and interaction preferences.
