*FOR USE WITH "DO WHAT YOU ARE" by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger.
Myers-Briggs always blows 'em away. (Most students are shocked at the accuracy of these personality-type descriptions when they read about themselves.) This package of activities is a great way to make the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment come alive for students. If you’ve never used the MBTI before, then you’re in for an interesting new experience. If you are already accustomed to using Myers-Briggs in class, then you will appreciate how this series of activities can help your students get more out of it.
The 3-part lesson is based on worksheets that are designed to guide students through an analysis of the descriptions of personality types and temperament found in Do What You Are, by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger, which were written to accompany the MBTI. I had this book for some time and I wanted to share it with the students in some way, but I wasn't sure how to do it. It needed some structure, some adaptations for the full size classroom. I finally created this activity for it, and now I use it with my Psych-Soc. classes every year. It is very effective in helping students engage with the MBTI more meaningfully and better understand how it relates to them as individuals. It's also great for giving kids a glimpse of the kinds of occupational careers that tend to be well-suited to their personality type.
The package includes 5 pages of worksheets for Parts I, II, and II of the activity, plus a Teacher's Guide sheet to help you get the most out of the activity. Appropriate for Psychology, Health, or Career Explorations classes.
*REMINDER: You must have access to "Do What You Are" by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger to conduct this lesson.
