Atlanta, GA: Sewa International USA conducted a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) workshop for couples and families with children in Atlanta on December 5th at IACA Sanatan Mandir, Smyrna,GA. This event was offered for free as a service to the community.
The MBTI workshop is the first in a series of workshops planned under the family services project of Sewa International in Atlanta and other cities in the US.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which was designed to implement the theories of C. G. Jung, is an easy-to-use tool for identifying our natural preferences and strengths. Through short questions and word-pair combinations, the MBTI identifies differing styles of perception, judgment, energy direction and lifestyle. There are no right or wrong “types”; the Indicator simply identifies different kinds of people who like different things, are good at different things, and who sometime may find it difficult to understand one another because of these differences.
Arun Kankani, who is a certified MBTI instructor and currently serves as Executive Vice President of Sewa International,USA, conducted the workshop. The six-hour long workshop, which is interactive with lot of fun and laughter, helps participants know their MBTI score, Identify their personal preferences and how these preferences are similar and different from others and examine how these personality similarities and differences facilitate and block communication in their relationship. The workshop also helps develop and sharpen interpersonal skills that heighten personal effectiveness and helps understand the basic differences between people, allowing them to work together while remaining comfortable with themselves. Overall, this is a very useful tool for self-development and self-understanding. More than 30 participants, that included couples and Families with children, attended the workshop.
