Abstract

Distinctive characteristics of Myers′ psychological‐type theory, including its aims, “tone”, type development and the concept of preference are discussed. The theory and the Myers‐Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) are relevant to counselling in three main ways: (1) by making the core qualities, e.g. empathy and acceptance, more tangible; (2) as a technique and framework; and (3) as a perspective on counselling practice and on other counselling theories.
