ACER Personality Type Accreditation

The ACER Personality Type Accreditation program is a two-step course which provides an in-depth understanding of each of the 16 personality types described by Carl Jung and Isabel Myers. The Majors Personality Type Inventory – MajorsPTI™ – (Step 1) was developed in the 1990s by Mark Majors and is a 52-question questionnaire that identifies the personality types and can be completed within 10 minutes. The Majors PT-Elements (Step II) is a more in-depth measure which reports on specific areas of development and potential blockages. The MajorsPTI™ is an excellent instrument for coaching and team development purposes. Those already accredited in the use of a Personality Type instrument need only attend the final day of the broad Majors’ program.
