"Treasures within the Type Table:
A Close Look at the Brilliant Design of
Isabel Briggs Myers"

Presented by Stephen Santore

One of Isabel Briggs Myers most beloved achievements was the creation of the type table, including the 16 possible type codes. The table is not constructed in a haphazard way. In fact, great thought was put into its design. In Isabel’s book, “Gifts Differing” much is disclosed of extreme value, and, of course, The MBTI® Manual explains the rows and the columns of the table in great detail. We will discuss the logic of the placement of the 16 type codes along with development, dynamics and application of type theory in life. We'll place considerable focus upon the four columns of the type table which Isabel Myers felt to be the most important geometry of the table, presenting the four function pairs of ST, SF, NF and NT.

After fun and educational activities, participants will have a much clearer and deeper understanding of the design of the type table. We'll also ponder questions such as what are some of the career implications of the columns of type, e.g. what would someone with ST function pair preferences be interested in doing as opposed to one with preferences for its opposite, NF?

We will also speak a bit about Isabel and her mother, Katharine Briggs, two women who deserve enormous thanks and respect for their life’s work: bringing about the introduction of the MBTI® and the four-letter type code to the world.
