The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a widely used personality assessment that can be an invaluable tool in a training context.

In all of our Train the Trainer courses, we introduce it on the first morning; we feel it is an essential aspect of understanding people,

By understanding the different personality types, trainers can tailor their methods to better suit the needs of their audience.

For example, extroverts are likely to benefit from interactive activities and group work, while introverts may prefer more individualized instruction.

Similarly, those with a preference for sensing (S preference) may prefer concrete examples and step-by-step instructions. In contrast, those with a preference for intuition (N preference) may prefer to explore concepts and ideas in a more open-ended manner.

By considering their audience's preferences, trainers can ensure that everyone has a chance to learn in a way that suits them best.

In short, MBTI can be a valuable tool for helping trainers create an inclusive and effective learning environment.
