The Majors Personality Type Inventory™ (PTI™) is an instrument designed to help your clients learn valuable information about how they direct their energy, take in information, make decisions, and how they orient themselves to their environment. The result is the popular 4-letter personality type code that is based on Jungian Type Theory (16 Personality Types) and is used by organizations worldwide (see below).
Personality type theory can help you understand why some situations are enjoyable and energizing, while others are uncomfortable and draining. Developed by Dr. Mark Majors, the Majors PTI™ is intended to help you in the process of self-understanding and continued personal and professional growth.
The Majors PTI™ is a shorter, less expensive alternative to other Jungian Type instruments and is more accurate. Unlike the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument, the PTI™ does not use a forced choice format for item responses. Instead, the PTI™ uses levels of similarity to provide clarity of results and increased precision.
The Majors PTI™ can be used for the business applications listed below. In addition, data from the PTI™ can be mapped to the results of the Breckenridge Culture Indicator™ (BCI™) to: a) establish the “fit” of key players within an organization’s culture, and b) quantitatively assess the distribution of an organization’s leadership and management bench strength.
The Breckenridge Institute will either administer the Majors PTI™ for you, or we'll train you to use it in your organization, or with your clients.
All other people must complete the Majors PTI™ training program in order to administer the PTI™ professionally. The PTI™ training program combines the convenience of a self-paced web-based learning environment, with one-on-one instruction and mentoring sessions by telephone. The on-line PTI™ training program includes:
Completion of the training program will give you access to administering the PTI™ 24X7 anywhere in the world where you have an Internet connection.
