MBTI® Forms and Reports
There are currently three different Forms of the MBTI® Instrument. Each Form provides a respondent with their Reported Type in various report formats. Since there are a number of different reports that can be generated from the Forms of the MBTI, it can be confusing to people new to the type model.
The most important thing to remember about the MBTI Reported Type is that it is one hypothesis of what your Type might be. We make sure that after everyone has selected their Best-Fit Type, that we re-print participant reports based on the type that each person has verified as being correct for them. We never hand people reports and tell them, “You are such and such a Type”.
Below are the Report Forms that we use with our clients:
MBTI® Step I™ Form M
The MBTI Step I, Form M, is the simplest of the three MBTI Forms, having only 93 questions. From the Form M, we can generate a number of computerized reports that contain different levels of information; we select the report to use for you, that is most aligned with the material you will receive in your workshops, and is the most cost-effective for your group.
Listed below are the reports we like to print for our clients:,
MBTI® Step I™ Profile Report: The Step I Profile Report is an easy to read, 2-page report that provides you with a 4-letter type code and a bit about that type.It is the shortest and least expensive of the Report forms.
MBTI® Step I™ Interpretive Report: The Step I Interpretive Report is a 5-page report provides you with a 4-letter type code, a bit about that type and gives you an understanding of the core of your type – the two mental functions that appear in the middle of the code. It provides you with an introduction to Type Dynamics and Myers’ hierarchy of functions for the Type.
MBTI® Step I™ Interpretive Report for Organizations: The Step I Interpretive Report for Organizations is a 10-page report that provides you with a 4-letter type code, a bit about that type and gives you an understanding of the core of your type – the two mental functions that appear in the middle of the code. It provides you with an introduction to Type Dynamics and Myers’ hierarchy of functions for the Type. The report has the bonus of capturing the work style and communication style of the type that is reported.
MBTI® Step II™ Form Q
This Form of the MBTI®, generates a 4-letter type code, and what are known as the Facets. The type preferences and corresponding Facets are printed via the MBTI® Step II™ Profile and Interpretive Reports. The Facets indicate how people may be expressing their type. This Form of the MBTI and the corresponding Facets are effective for pointing out differences between people of the same type, and in some cases, help people to verify their type. Due to the complex nature of the Step II™, Form Q, and the time it takes for a proper interpretation, we use this Form and the corresponding reports for teams and leaders who have gone through an introductory workshop, or an individual MBTI feedback session.
MBTI® Step III™
The MBTI® Step III™ is the most recent addition to the MBTI® Forms. It is a highly individualized Type Development inventory which highlights personal effectiveness with regard to Yourself and Your World, People and Relationships, Responsibility and Work, and Problem Solving and Decision Making. It provides you with a path for how you can develop in your type with its built in development statements and suggestions for growth. You select the statements that resonate with you and determine the direction for your personal development planning. The tool has powerful potential to jump start and streamline our work together. It is also a potential reference tool to return to when setting goals and evaluating progress. We use the MBTI Step III™ for individual and leadership development.
