The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used questionnaire for talent development in the world. The instrument is based on the personality theories of Carl Jung, and describes differences between personalities in a positive way. |
During this workshop you are first challenged to estimate your own personality type in an interactive group feedback session. Thereafter you will individually fill out a free online version of the questionnaire to get your reported personality type. In the remaining part of the workshop we will further explore the characteristics of the various typologies. MBTI will learn you more about so-called ‘preferences’. Each preference indicates what gives you energy and what you are comfortable with. This can help you in both your personal and professional life.
I´m Rutger-Jan Scholtens and I currently work as a trainer/coach at Career Services, Utrecht University. I have a background in Business Administration and Cultural Anthropology. Ever since I was a teacher at the university I emphasized the importance of personal reflection and soft skills development for students. I am happy that I can put this in to practice now by assisting students with their career orientation and personal growth. As a trainer/coach it is my endeavor to inspire and activate young professionals. To reach that I engage with students and challenge them to explore their drives, qualities and opportunities. In my workshops I have a pragmatic and interactive approach and I focus on the positive and possible.
