According to Consulting Psychologist Press, the Myers-Briggs has become "the most widely used measure of personality dispositions and preferences." The MBTI is used in industry, education, counseling, and over health services, and -- increasingly -- in religious life. In a practical and easy-to-read way, Dr. Gary Harbaugh combines the psychological perspective of the Myers-Briggs with a biblical understanding of gifts -- particularly the often overlooked gift of one's own unique personality.

Helpful for Applying MBTI to Congregational Life May 7, 2001
This little book takes the information from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality profile and applies it to how people's personalities might be most effectively plugged in to congregational life.
A short version of the indicator is included in the book, along with information on how to obtain the full survey. All sixteen types are listed, their type described, and possible "fits" in church life suggested. The author, a psychologist, consultant, seminary teacher, and author, is careful in his application of the MBTI results-- more suggestive than prescriptive.
A very helpful book. Anyone interested in the dynamics of congregational life and helping members use their gifts for ministry should appreciate the author's insights!
