Creating Believable Characters Using Myers Briggs Types

Don’t make your readers toss the book across the room in disgust.

Taught by a certified Myers Briggs facilitator and award-winning author, this workshop will explain how the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can help you create believable personalities for your characters…and you might learn something about yourself in the process! We will explore your character’s behaviors by looking at:

  • What makes your characters tick?
  • What charges or drains their energy levels?
  • What kinds of information do they trust and how do they gather it?
  • What goes into their decision-making process?
  • What’s their approach to organization, structure, and planning?

Mix up these traits in the wrong way, and you will send a frustrating message to your reader—you don’t know your character.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Establish your character's type
  • Recognize examples of the four areas that create the sixteen MBTI types and how you might use this information to create characters who leap off the page
  • Begin to develop how your character behaves under normal circumstances and how their environment might change those behaviors
