The Thought Leadership and Research teams of The Myers-Briggs Company are out in force at the European Association for Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP) Congress in Turin this week.
We deliver presentations covering a range of topics. They include well-being, the gig economy, personality and exercise, gender differences in leadership, criticisms of developmental assessments like the MBTI questionnaire, and whether personality is changing over time.
The Congress runs from 29 May–1 June – find out more on the EAWOP website.
