Party like it’s 1991: Celebrating 30 Years of AusAPT – Phil Kerr

The Australian Association for Psychological Type was formed in 1991 at Australia’s first type conference, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: Australian Perspectives.

During the 1980s, use of the MBTI spread to organisations in the private and public sectors. In response to the growing interest, Mary McGuiness established the Institute for Type Development (ITD) in Sydney. In 1986 she (more…)
