Dear Future Chief Resident: The following test is designed to measure your MBTI Personality type. We will be discussing the theory behind this test, and the results it demonstrates, during the session on “Leadership and Personality Types” during the second day of the conference. The session will be much more valuable to you if you have completed this test PRIOR to the session. Completing the test should only take 15 minutes or so. You can complete it on paper, or can use a web based version located at http://DOMWebserver.Hitchcock.org/mbti/. The web based version has several benefits: 1) You do not have to score your results, as the web page does so for you, 2) You will receive a detailed type report immediately after completing the web based survey, and 3) I will be able to present your group’s specific data at the session. Several hints about how to best complete this survey: • There are no right answers to any of these questions. • Answer the questions quickly, do not over-analyze them. Some seem worded poorly. Go with what feels best. • Answer the questions as “the way you are”, not “the way you’d like to be seen by others” • Do not look at the scoring sheet until you have completed all the questions. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to reviewing this at the session!
