Top five OPP blog articles of 2014
Visits to our Personality Matters blog were at an all-time high in 2014, and we covered a wide range of topics in our weekly posts. Over the past 12 months we've talked about the best MBTI-based books and the various resources available for L&D teams. We’ve promoted Movember, and commented on the Paul Flowers furore. We've also continued to thrive as thought leaders in a diverse range of workplace psychology issues, from recruitment and assessment centres to polarity management.
But what were the most popular posts in 2014? Here's a rundown of the top five.

2. Six videos that help illustrate MBTI type
Training aids that are memorable and that bring clarity to descriptions of MBTI type are like gold dust. One of the commonest questions we come across in the various MBTI-related Linked In groups, including OPP’s own OPP Qualified Practitioners, is the plea for good exercises to help illustrate the MBTI preferences and dichotomies.
Think of your MBTI type... and then re-imagine it as a type of shoe! There are more possibilities than you'd think: cosy slippers or feisty fire fighter's footwear? Boots for exploring other worlds or flip flops made of fish? Have fun with your type using our latest type table!
Few things in life are free – but OPP has some really cool free resources to support you in your work!
