MBTI and managing change

Change is a constant feature of the modern workplace and most individuals, teams, managers and organisations have to be able to manage change effectively.

Individuals’ attitudes to change are influenced considerably by their MBTI™ preferences. We believe that it is the combination of E/I and S/N which have most influence on how individuals view change at work. In other words, if we divide the type table into four quadrants, then we have four different attitudes to change and four different preferred roles if change is taking place. Understanding these differences and managing them well can improve team effectiveness. Below is a summary of type and the quadrants. Use the menu on the right to get more detailed information on how each of the four quadrants (ENs, INs, ISs and ESs) see and contribute to the change process.
