The Use of Psychological Type in Learning and Development
With Andrew Mountford and Adam Le Good
20th July 2022: 3:30 to 5:00 PM AEST
Whether you use Psychological Instruments in your training or not, an understanding of Psychological Type is key to understanding our clients and getting the most from groups.
In this practical Masterclass Andrew Mountford (National Secretary of AusAPT) and Adam Le Good (Fundamental Training and Development) will explore applications of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) in the field of Learning and Development. L&D professionals have used Type Theory in training, facilitation, team building, coaching, career development and more.
The questions we will address in the session are:
- Who uses the MBTI®?
- How do they use it?
- What are some of the alternatives to MBTI® – ‘horses for courses’?
- Benefits of MBTI® compared to other psychometric instruments
- Caveats – our experience of what doesn’t work – let us spare you the pain!

Andrew is the current National Secretary and former National President of the Australian Association for Psychological Type (AusAPT) https://ausapt.org.au/
He was accredited to use the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) in 1985 and has introduced many thousands of Australians and Europeans to the benefits of the instrument.
In Andrew’s experience, used well, the MBTI® can be a deeply insightful tool for self-understanding leading to significant personal and professional development. That includes applying the insights of the instrument to enhance facilitation approaches. In his consulting interventions over many years, Andrew has deployed the MBTI® in large scale training programs, team development activities, business planning, conflict resolution sessions, coaching and career development.
