Majors PTI Certification


Majors PTI  Certification

The Majors Personality Type InventoryTM  is a questionnaire that identifies 16 personality types, based on the Jung/Myers-Briggs personality theory. This instrument was developed in the 1990s by Mark Majors, who also helped to develop the MBTI Step II instrument and the Strong Interest Inventory. The MajorsPTI has 52 questions and can be completed on-line or on paper in a self-scoreable version.

Benefits of this instrument:

  • Quicker to administer. So, you spend less time filling in forms.
  • Has 92% accuracy, compared to 86% in other well-known instruments.
  • Instant results – self-scoring takes 5 minutes; the on-line results appear on your computer in minutes, not hours.

In a 3-day workshop you will learn to use a tool that can be applied in many areas of training and coaching…

  • Understanding self and others
  • Developing effective communication
  • Building better work teams
  • Improving workplace behaviour and career success
  • Discovering how and why people learn differently
  • Understanding and managing stress
  • Decision making and problem solving

We will teach you how to present workshops on personality type and how to use the questionnaire and the theory with individuals and groups.

Successful completion of our 3-day program will give you a life-long qualification to purchase, use and interpret the results of the MajorsPTI TM. This qualification is recognised internationally.

And, you can apply what you learn immediately!

VIRTUAL workshop: In 2021  this course will be offered as 5 half days instead of 3 full days.  Virtual 'in-house' courses are also possible if you have a group of 4 or more. Please contact ITD for more information.
