Episode 000 – Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

In this inaugural episode, I interview Jackson Gabbard, a software engineer at Facebook, about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a psychometric assessment that measures how people perceive the world and make decisions.  The understanding of MBTI has many applications, including helping you understand yourself and others better, leading to smoother interactions in your professional and personal lives.  Jackson explains the MBTI with simple language, and gives real-world examples of how people with differing types interact.

Please let me know what you like and don’t about this episode, and also leave suggestions for future topics!

    I think I had heard about this back in the mid 80’s when I was in middle school. But it wasn’t something that caught my attention back then. I now find this very interesting and I like the way Jackson explained it in detail. Thanks for sharing and I just shared it on my FB as well.

      Thanks for sharing it, Paul. I’ve found the model useful as a way to better understand others and myself, and especially to get insight into some sorts of disagreements that stem from differences in how we perceive the world.
