Coaching Cards: Type Dynamics

Apply Type dynamics in coaching

Embed Type dynamics into your coaching discussions with this set of 31 colour cards. A catalyst for meaningful conversations, they use our Core Characters™ to unlock one of the most unique and powerful aspects of the MBTI® tool.

  • Dominant and auxiliary – provide insight into how the auxiliary influences each dominant function
  • Understanding stress – highlight the typical exaggerated behaviours of each function
  • Extraverted and introverted functions – contrast how a function's  orientation impacts on how it is expressed
