Personality Styles and Type

Focus: 
Personal Development

Personality Styles and Type: Personality is the innate way we think, feel and act on most occasions. It can be considered a person's characteristics that are enduring and it is the core of who we are as individuals. At the UMass Amhert's Workplace Learning & Development office, we use the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) to identify individual personality styles and how they appear in the workplace.
