"ENTJ." "ISFP." You've likely heard these abbreviations, but what do they mean exactly?

These are two of the 16 types in the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) - a framework for analyzing individuals' personality types, strengths, and preferences based on a self-assessment. Every day the test is used by hundreds of universities, almost 90% of Fortune 500 companies, and more recently even on dating apps such as So Syncd.

A few years ago Joe Arrigo, author of the recently published Marble and Sculptor: A Personality Type Manifesto, became fascinated with the MBTI and its potential application to his job as a corporate recruiter. He took a deep dive into the subject, became an expert on it, and developed a coaching practice around this approach to personality type. With great insight and humor, Joe shares his unique perspectives with Nikhil on MBTI, and how he's helped clients leverage the tool to achieve alignment between job candidates, companies, and employment opportunities.
