Group Feedback Scratchcards
In a one-to-one feedback, every participant has the opportunity to explore personal examples of how they use their MBTI preferences. This helps them to understand their own MBTI type, and to appreciate the situations in which they choose to use each side of the preference pair.
In a group feedback, exploring these personal examples is a challenge, as there is usually only one MBTI-qualified practitioner in the room, and many people for them to facilitate. These Scratchcards provide an ideal tool to enable participants to ask relevant questions and probes of each other, without having to involve the practitioner.
Pocket Problem Solver
This handy credit card sized tool is a great takeaway for participants learning to apply type to improve decision making and problem solving. It presents an easy to grasp framework (sometimes called the Zig Zag model) to help balance natural preferences, and can be used as an easy reference when making decisions at work or at home.
The Pocket problem solver provides a neat reminder of the model along with questions relating to problem solving with each relevant preference. Use this tool alongside the reusable Problem solver posters to reinforce learning and encourage users to keep their learning active once they return to their everyday roles.
