Easy way to take the MBTI and it provides the students a chance to begin formulating thoughts using internal reflection. This would be a good option to use both in an online or hybrid course.

I would definitely use parts of this website in the future in classes on leadership and perhaps creative studies and technology.  The sense of humor is great.  Some of the background on leadership might need full explanation before the parody presented, but it gives students a chance to see theories with a different critical eye.  There are many activities with applications in many subjects. 

Technical Remarks:

The site can be complicated unless you use the sidebar menu.  I like the interactive syllabus.

The author's website provides an efficient way for students to assess their MBTI results in an online environment.

Technical Remarks:

The site functions well. The graphics are a bit "busy" but it is still easy to find what you need.

I wasn't crazy about the appearance of this site. The site seemed jumbled and written in different fonts and colors. It wasn't pleasing to read, but it is well worth the information provided. I especially liked the leadership assessments. I plan on using this in an upcoming class. It pretty much has everything I need in one location.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use.
