Alumni Spotlight:
Kenza Hadj-Moussa (cohort 13)

As part of Linda Krug's newly revamped core course, Political and Advocacy Leadership, students are completing the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment. According to the Myers Briggs Foundation, MBTI is a personality inventory designed to help people apply Jung's personality typing to their own lives. "The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. The Myers-Briggs Indicator is the most widely recognized personality type instrument, used quite often in corporate (and more and more, nonprofit) settings to improve organizational effectiveness."

MAPL graduate Kenza Hadj-Moussa (cohort 13) is a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Certified Instructor and will be scoring student results and telling them what it all means!
