Abstract:

This paper was developed to provide management with an additional tool to use, in conjunction with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator MBTI, in team building, strengthening communication, and preventing or diagnosing organizational dysfunction. The MBTI has long been the instrument of choice of most organizations concerned about group dynamics. However, there is potential for incorrect interpretation, misunderstanding, and misuse. The MBTI3D was developed to provide management the ability to visualize an individual in a multi-dimensional environment, as well as the capacity to compare multiple individuals. It gives management a new understanding of group dynamics and provides the capability to facilitate organizational change as well as explaining, resolving, and avoiding employee conflict.
