The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) & The Murphy-Meisgeier Indicator for Children (MMTIC) measures psychological type.
The primary difference in the two instruments is the age groups they target: the MBTI assessment was developed for adults, while the MMTIC assessment is intended for use with children and teenagers.
People are asked to respond to questions about their preferences in various situations, and the result is an indicated “type” of personality.
The hypothesis needs to be verified by the respondent as he or she considers the descriptions of the reported and different types. This leads to a best-‐fit type, and continued self‐assessment may result in an accurate indication of type that is different than the reported results.
Are intended for self-discovery — what is right with you. Knowing one’s type gives insight into one’s motives, behaviors and interactions with others.
All types are positive or good.
MBTI has been refined for over 60 years. MBTI is now taken by at least two million people each year all over the world and translated into sixteen languages.
The Murphy-Meisgeier Indicator for Children, was first published in 1987, and administered to thousands of children since that time, allowing for the ongoing collection of data that supports the validity and reliability of the instrument.Source: CAPT
