The team explores the MBTI and gain insights into their personality traits.
At a meeting with Barney and Marcus, Serena claims that she introduced the concept of Myers Briggs personality testing to Cutting Edge. Dion explains that the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator was first developed by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers. It’s based on Carl Jung’s theory of four principal psychological functions by which we experience the world: sensation, intuition, feeling and thinking and there are four dichotomies: Extravert or Introvert, Sensing or Intuition, Thinking or Feeling, Judging or Perceiving. There are 16 personality types identified. The staff has fun testing each other to discover which “combinations” they are. There are no wrong or right answers; the MBTI is a means of working out better modes of communication and understanding between employees. Carol uncharacteristically acknowledges Sherry’s contribution and makes it known that the original suggestion for the MBTI was Sherry’s (the researcher at the bottom of the stairs).
Cutting Edge Communication training videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. Contemporary, fast paced, short, character driven, sitcom-style comedies, these courses take an innovative approach to reaching today's learners. Through laughter, discussion and reaction, we can all develop a more transparent and shared vision of how we wish to behave, how we manage ourselves, and how we cooperate with others.
While some find them insensitive or even outrageous, the vast majority of viewers and participants have found them to be refreshing, stimulating and ideal for injecting energy and enthusiasm back into learning.
