All children are unique. Each child develops and learns best in an environment where his or her individual differences are understood and accommodated. Among the most important differences are those associated with psychological type, i.e., how children absorb information about their environment and how they then order and make decisions about the information. The contribution of type theory to our understanding of individual behavior has helped bring order and predictability to life situations that was previously characterized by confusion, misunderstanding, and pain.
We have found that an early understanding of typological preferences in children can greatly ease some of the concerns parents have regarding their child's behavior and predilection to family and school environments.
Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children®
The Myers-Briggs® Type Indicator Assessment has long been the most valid and reliable assessment for measuring personality preferences in adults; however, it has not proven to be suitable for young children. The MMTIC® was developed to fill this need.
Measuring personality preferences in children is one of the more important processes a parent can provide. It is during the elementary school years that children first begin developing individualized or stylized ways of taking in information. At the same time, they process and make decisions about that information in ways that reflect their emerging priorities and values. It is therefore important that parents and teachers understand these priorities and values early on in order to provide an environment that supports and enhances childrens' preferences.
The Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® is designed to elicit information about individual differences in children through the identification of psychological type and seeks to provide an interpretation of type as it relates to how an individual child best perceives and processes information and how that child prefers to interact socially and behaviorally with others. This instrument is useful for children from grades 2-12 . It is a self-reporting assessment in which the child is ask to choose his or her preferred response from two choices, neither of which is right or wrong. It contains 43 items designed to measure the same four preference scales as the Myers-Briggs® Type Indicator Assessment and as defined by Briggs and Myers.
The information provided by the MMTIC® can:
- Contribute to the improvement of self-esteem, achievement, and social interaction through the identification of individual strengths
- Facilitate improved relationships between children and teachers, children and parents, and children and their friends
- Help children understand themselves
- Contribute to the intelligent rearing, teaching, counseling, and overall understanding of children
This assessment is a must for concerned and responsible parenting and teaching; it can be a significant influence in the proper development of any child.
