I qualified as an MBTI practitioner in 2005. My key reason for undertaking the accreditation was to utilise the MBTI as part of a research study in my PhD program. The research ultimately involved over 150 one-on-one feedback sessions with doctors and students, and was due to commence shortly after I finished the course. There was a problem, though: I had no experience explaining, administering, scoring and reporting the MBTI, and my anxiety was mounting. I felt the need to develop both competence and confidence in using the MBTI. Ever the rationalist, who also loves entertaining and dinner parties, I decided that some of my friends might enjoy knowing their types. I, in turn, could then consolidate my training. So I invited twelve friends to a dinner party with a twist. I sent them each an email explaining the MBTI and my need to practise, and invited them to a group MBTI session, followed by the meal.
