How Couples Improve Their Relationship with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® Step II
Many of the Central Minnesota couples that I have worked over the years have used the standard version or the preferred, more sophisticated version of the Myers-Briggs® to better understand their spouse and to be better understood themselves.
Myers-Briggs® "Psychological Personality Type" assessments have helped many of my engaged, married, and committed couples to understand each other. A great many Central Minnesota couples have used this assessment to improve their relationship communication.
For me, interpreting the results of a couples' Myers-Briggs® within the counseling session is like watching light bulbs being turned on! Both partners have flashes of insight as they more fully appreciate the differences in how each thinks and processes their experience. With this new insight, appreciation, and tolerance for each other's unique ways of thinking, understanding grows, and misunderstanding fades.
My experience of conducting hundreds of Myers-Briggs® interpretations, and my training as a certified MBTI® Master Practitioner, truly helps couples. Consider learning how your psychological personality type plays out in your relationship.
You and Your Mate Can Improve Communications Through the Myers-Briggs®
- Understand your individual psychological needs and be able to better express them to your wife or husband
- Discover the preferences of your romantic partner that often contribute to misunderstanding
- Be much better understood and accepted by your wife, husband or romantic partner
- Make wiser decisions together by factoring in your individual decision-making preferences so the process goes more smoothly
- Develop better strategies and agreement on how you structure your household finances
- Better know and respect each other based on your similarities and your differences
Additional Benefits of the Myers-Briggs® for Minnesota Couples who work with me in Marriage Therapy
In addition to your relationship itself, we may also discuss how your psychological personality type impacts other aspects of your lives together including:
- You and your spouse's potential career advancement opportunities
- Major life transitions that either of you may be going through
- Challenges that each of you might be having with work relationships
- The psychological preferences in how you both manage money and how to better understand your spouse's preferences rather than only understanding your own
- Difficult family relationships with your own family members or your relationships with your in-laws
