Once you pay below, you'll be sent an encrypted link to start your assessment. The link expires quickly, so make sure you're ready to take your assessment shortly after purchasing it.
As a certified MBTI® pracitioner, I'll walk you through an in-depth, interactive discussion with exercises where we'll verify and interpret your results together. One hour by phone. You can also combine it with a career coaching session.
Don't overthink the questions. There are no right or wrong answers. Select the answers that best fit you - anything else will weaken the accuracy of the results.
You'll get a 4-letter type code indicating your personality preferences (more below). Your results will require interpretation and verifications, but you have options:
After taking the test, you'll be walked through a self-guided online feedback system to verify the accuracy of your preferred type. This serves as your interpretation. A good option if you're tight on cash or don't want human intereaction.
"If I could change the world, I would have every high school student take the Myers-Briggs Personality Test® instead of the SAT. The things that you naturally like doing, the things that you naturally gravitate for, those are the things that can help you find a career that fits you.”
Liz Brown - JDCOT Guest and Author of Life After Law
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® was developed more than 60 years ago, based on the work of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung.
Myers and Briggs identified 16 patterns of personalities called Type Codes. Each type code consists of 4 letters, which each come from 4 pairs of preferences. The assessment process determines which preference from each of the 4 pairs makes up your type.
One pair describes the primary focus of our energy, one describes different ways we take in information, one describes different ways we make decisions based on that information, and one describes different ways we live our daily lives.

Whether you're at the start of your career or making a career change, knowing and understanding your personality type will help you evaluate potential career paths and job opportunities so you can find work that fits you.
I know because I've been there. I'm Marc Luber, founder of JD Careers Out There, where I help lawyers find fulfilling careers. When I was making a career change and leaving my first post-law school career (in the music business), the MBTI® was incredibly helpful in leading me to a successful career in legal recruiting. That, combined with seeing it help others, is what led me to becoming MBTI® certified.
Every time I review my MBTI® results, I have the same reaction my clients have when they review theirs: “This report knows me better than I do!” It's no shock that many of my video guests who left law for alternative careers took the MBTI® on their way to career fulfillment.
I'll be leading you through your verification and interpretation session, plus I can help you further apply what you learn about yourself through a career coaching session (see the combo deal below). I've been helping lawyers advance their careers since 2003. You can trust I'll hold your MBTI® results and your career concerns in confidence.
