Personality Instruments: what to select and how they can assist

April 13 @ 6:30 pm 9:30 pm AEST

Adam Le Good & Rod Winning present Personality instruments, what to select and how they can assist in a practical, useful, fun evening with two top trainers, includes video.

While the focus will be on consultants, Human Resources & Organisational Development & Training and Development professionals who are most likely to be organising these interventions, the session will have applicability for anyone who is curious about what various instruments do and do not do, and how to select according to group needs. Adam and Rod will also provide information about the way that results and familiarity with the instrument’s results may lead to problem solving, coaching, counselling, and training with groups and organisations.

Adam and Rod have a series of videos in production entitled ‘Personality and Behaviour’ explaining that instruments are either essentially personality or behaviour identifiers, behaviour being an outcome of personality and context. The video series will be useful to a wide range of practitioners, students, HR & OD & consultants.

The first episode has been completed.  It is a broad level overview which compares the following instruments – MBTI, Herrmann, TMS, Belbin, Enneagram, DISC Advanced. It is not rating them, more looking for areas where they are best suited or perhaps not suited for.  They have interviewed practitioners from peak bodies in each of these styles.

Depth Typology – Exploring Beebe’s ideas with Ian Ball

November 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm AEDT


The workshop draws on Mark Hunziker’s book Depth Typology. We will look at the way the eight archetypes affect how the eight function-attitudes are expressed within an individual psyche. We will do some exercises about the sixteen types that illustrate why we sometimes feel drawn to or have potential conflict issues with people of differing type preferences. We will explore the ideas about the significance of one’s shadow type and one’s opposite type.

About Ian Ball:

Ian is a Life Member of AusAPT and managed the Psychological Type Research Unit for 22 years. He has published research on type in both Australian and International journals and at conferences. A major project was the creation of a model of the distribution of types in the Australian working population using census data. He is a retired Associate Professor from Deakin University, and is a Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society.
