Does any of this sound familiar? Does it raise any concerns?
• “Sure I know my type letters. I took a test on Facebook.”
• “No, I cannot think abstractly. I am a sensor.”
• “We really should not hire people with that type.”LB Pic
If this does sound familiar… if this does raise concerns, you are not alone. Misinterpretations, misuses of the MBTI® and generally “bad type” have led to heightened criticism of the Indicator and, exacerbated by the internet, expansive criticism of the field of type in general. Much of this is caused by inexperienced and insufficiently trained practitioners, and/or a lack of attention to clear and disciplined standards for excellence.

Created by Linda Berens and Maryanne Dimarzo, this learning

program has several modules that tell the story of a consultant, hired by a human resources professional to help strengthen the type dynammaryanne-dimarzo1-150x150ics of the executive leadership team of a business. It is based on real live experiences, and highlights a comprehensive set of challenges that type practitioners face throughout their careers.

Each module is followed by a knowledge check to ensure that the content is thoroughly understood.
Those who successfully complete this program will receive a lapel pin, permission to use our logo, and will be listed in a prominent place on the new APTi website as “Certified in the Practical Applications of Best in Class Standards by APTi.”

We hope you participate in this program. We are sure you will find it worthwhile. But, more importantly, we ask you to join us in making our “Practical Applications of our Best in Class Standards” come alive.
