Designing Training Solutions With Myers-Briggs In Mind

| January 21, 2019

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) is a personality evaluation tool, developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs. The tool is based on the original work of psychologist C.G Jung. MBTI is used in a number of situations, where it is important to understand how to tailor interactions (interviews, tests, training, performance evaluations, lectures) based on the personality of individuals or groups. Trainers and Instructional Designers can leverage the essence of an MBTI to design highly effective training solutions.It is well documented that each individual learns differently, and that difference is based on the strengths, preferences, and weaknesses that the learner possesses. For instance, some learners have a strong memorizing capacity and can recollect training material without actually understanding the real meaning. Others have strong comprehension, and they can, therefore, understand new theories and concepts more readily than some of their peers.

The universal tier is the curriculum, instruction, and assessments that we provide to all students in a grade level in school. This is the instruction that’s guaranteed for all students to receive.Our universal tier instruction typically focuses on grade level standards for our state and school. Schools use universal screening data in order to identify the effectiveness of their universal tier. There are two primary questions that schools ask as they’re doing this work. The first is if 80% of their students are successful. Schools typically use 80% criteria because they have resources to intervene with about 20% of students. If they have more than 20% of students who need additional intervention in order to be successful, their resources may be strained and they may not be able to provide intervention to all of those students.
