JTI - Jungian Type Index
JTI identifies the mental preferences of the individual human being, thus giving insight to:
»»Where do we prefer to direct our attention
»»How to we prefer to receive impressions
»»How do we prefer to make decisions
»»Which life style do we prefer
The JTI consists of 56 statements, and the test person is asked to select the statement which characterizes him most accurately. The result is a four-letter code which appears according to the respondent’s choosing between the two poles on the four belowmentioned dimensions, which the tool examines.
»» Extrovert - Introvert
»» Sensing - Intuition
»» Thinking - Feeling
»» Judgement - Perception
How to use the tool
JTI is a development tool which is easy to use and valuable to individuals, groups, and organisations. JTI may be used in leadership development as well as mapping and developing group processes.
Additionally, the tool may be used for personal consulting in connection to career development, conflict management and organisation culture development.
What is in it for me?
JTI is an important step in regards to appreciation and improved usability of the human resources in an organisation. This is caused by JTI being a tool which gives the individual an insight to him/
herself, and also provides people with an understanding of other people’s action patterns.
By identifying one’s preferred way to communicate, understand and handle assignments and issues, the individual may, among other things, learn more about his/her strengths and weaknesses
regarding both assignments and the collaboration with others.
JTI may also give an image of a group as a whole – its specific competencies and differences – and contribute to better use of resources, better understanding and improved conflict management
in a group development process. Furthermore, JTI may provide you with a description of how the organisation (or different parts of the organisation) is combined, and thus provide you with an image of
dominant cultures and ways of which the organisation or parts of it, perceives itself.
The Jungian Type Index (JTI) is developed by the two Norwegian psychologists Hallvard Ringstad and Thor Ødegaard and is based upon Jung's type theory about human similarities and differences.
