The professor is very good at explaining through examples and is modest enough to admit his own myers brigs preferences and use them as examples which is fun to hear and makes sense because it rings true.

Very good discussion of the MBTI. This one course covered the major issues of the test and what it shows and does not show. The instructor was efficient and effective and the examples were spot on.

I thought the course clearly describes what Meyers-Briggs is. What is unclear, is how to people's preferences can span across the 2 dichotomies of each type.
