A written assignment for group communication

Link to MTBI test

This is a nice written assignment to do before the groups begin working together. The quiz has 72 yes/no questions. Many students say they find it surprisingly accurate.

Take the brief form of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test at http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp and read the 2-3 links that describe your results in detail. Identify your type. What does your result say about your ability to work in groups? For example, which group skills might come naturally to you and which will require you to work at improving? Do you have any traits that might have to be “reined in” to make group work successful? Overall, do you agree with what the MBTI results say about you? Why or why not?

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
