About Our Organisation

Our Mission

The primary mission of the Australian Association of Psychological Type, AusAPT and all APTs, is two fold:

  1. To expand knowledge of psychological type
  2. To support the ethical use of psychological type and type instruments

As type practitioners we face an ethical challenge. The modern world of Internet technology has created general access for the public in obtaining information about type. At the same time organisations are very interested in instruments and tools for managing people. Over the last few years, the number of professionals administering and interpreting type has increased. These developments have created concerns for the appropriate use of type instruments and the accurate and positive interpretation of type scores.
AusAPT encourages all type practitioners to continue to develop their skills and knowledge in various applications of type theory. The ethical use of psychological type means that practitioners are committed to honour and enhance the dignity and individuality of people.
