MBTI assessment

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment takes about 45 minutes to complete online, followed by a 1 hour in-person interpretation with a Career Specialist. (Note that you have to come in for an appointment to get your results; the online tool alone does not present you with results.)

This assessment is free for currently registered UMBC students. UMBC licenses the MBTI online assessment through a CPP platform called Elevate.

Create an Elevate account and take the MBTI assessment

Note: We recommend that you first take Compass and/or Focus 2 career assessments and then meet with a Career Specialist before deciding to take the MBTI.
