021: I wish I knew this… when taking over my first team, with Jordan Mendoza.

Jordan Mendoza is the host of the Blaze Your Own Trail Podcast. As a sales and training professional, Jordan helps people discover their Myers-Briggs 4 letter type, taking them from self-awareness to coming up with their personal Leadership philosophy. In this episode, Jordan and I discuss the Myers-Briggs assessment, how it has impacted his leadership style, and how he teaches leadership through the lens of the MBTI assessment.

Key Takeaways:

  • Myers-Briggs (MBTI) is one of the most widely used personality assessments in the world
  • Firstly, you, we, are all way more than just a type. We are humans first
  • MBTI has 4 preference pairs that are opposites of each other:
  • Extroversion/Introversion – we get our energy from the world (internally or externally)
  • Sensing/Intuition – how we take in information
  • Thinking/Feeling – how we decide and come to conclusions
  • Judging/Perceiving – opposite ways we approach the world (and not people)
  • We may be a version of each of these pairs and their opposites, but we don’t do them with equal ease
