Leveraging Your MBTI Type to Manage Stress
December 14 @ 5:55 pm - 7:00 pm EST
Both job search and career management are known stress magnifiers. Everyone handles pressure differently, and our personalities can contribute to our tendencies to display stress differently. For some, it might show up, for example, as anxiety, obsessive rumination, or maybe rigid thinking. But if you know and leverage your Myers-Briggs type, you may be one step closer to a restful mind and nights of sound sleep.
While not the be-all and end-all for self-awareness, the Myers Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the world’s most used personality inventories. We’ll quickly review what the MBTI is (and isn’t) and then dig into how typical attributes of each Type might be triggered by job search or career management stress. From there, we’ll look at how you can draw on your natural strengths to anticipate and manage your hot buttons to be your best self.
Don’t remember your MBTI Type?
