Systems Thinking and Personality Types LO24580

Date: 05/09/00

Replying to LO24565 --


I have used the MBTI as well as DISC in my practice and have found them to
be of value. The main drawback I have with both of these tools is they
define the WHAT of a personality ie.. Extrovert vs. Introvert but not the
why. For that reason I feel combining tools like these is redundant.

If however you combine a personality profile like MBTI with something that
goes behind the curtain of personality and reveals the motivation behind
the personality there is a greater potential for understanding.
