Myers-Briggs®, Type and Temperament

Self-Guided Tutorials

Type Trainer Self-Guided Tutorial (online)

For years, OKA has been teaching trainers how to deliver high-impact, experiential Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) workshops. Now we offer this course in a self-guided format, available online using any web browser. Drawing on OKA’s longstanding three-day MBTI/Type Trainer’s Skillshop, and built around OKA’s MBTI Workshop Slides, this self-guided presentation has audio over a detailed PowerPoint slide show. The class teaches both type theory content and “behind the curtain” insights on the structure and logistics of an experiential type training.

Finding Balance with Type – Self-Guided Tutorial

At the core of type theory are perception (data gathering) and judgment (decision making). Balancing these essential mental functions is a core element of self-management. Too much judgment leads to rigidity and prejudice, while too much perception leads to inaction and procrastination. Success in any endeavor demands these forces be balanced. In this self-guided CD, Hile Rutledge leads you through the challenges of balance: how to understand it, how to diagnose imbalance, and the actions that can bring about greater balance.
