Seminar Preparations:

1. Take the online personality type profile based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator by going to the Humanetrics website. After you have completed the questions, click on “score it.” Your personality type will appear on the top of the screen. Click on the articles listed below to read more about tendencies that may describe you.


2. Take the Kolb Learning Styles Inventory by clicking here.


Enter a username - we recommend first name underscore last name e.g. Joe_Sample

You can then access the test and print/view your results and the interpretative information. You can re-access your results at any time for up to one year by going here and entering your username and personal password. If you have any questions please call the Hay Group at 1 800 729 8074.

For more information about learning styles, see the article at http://pss.uvm.edu/pss162/learning_styles.html.


3. Take the two conflict style inventories on paper (distributed in class). Do not score either survey until you have completed the questions on both. 

 

Please be sure to bring your results from all inventories with you to the seminar. You will not be submitting these, but will need them for reference during the seminar.

 

3 rules of thumb for taking inventories:

Rule #1
Have fun! These are tools to help you get a sense of your preferences and tendencies.

Rule #2
“Go with your gut!” Try not to labor over or overanalyze your responses—go with your first impulse. Remember, there is no “right” or “wrong.”

Rule #3
“Know thyself!” Let your answers reflect the realities in your life, not your ideals.
