I’ve used the Myers Briggs tool for each project team I have led. The Myers Briggs tool is best used objectively.
1) With adherance to each type’s cognitive functions.
2) Each team members personal preference for taking in information.
3) Along with their approach to problem solving.
So important to get away from focusing on only the individual letters for each type when testing. This leads to errors in testing. Focus on the cognitive functions such as Te: Extraverted Thinking, or Si: Introverted Sensing.
Please also keep in mind that the stereotypes of introvert and extrovert are simply stereotypes. The leading cognitive function forms the introvert or extravert function. Not whether you enjoy staying home on Saturday nights.
For instance, if your lead preference is Ne: Extraverted Intuition. The leading function in your Myers Briggs stack would be Ne. Your leading function (Ne) enables you to brainstorm many possibilities and predict multiple outcomes. One can imagine how powerful this skill would be on a project team.
