What is BAPT?
Every day, across the world, people strive to discover just what it is that makes them who they are – why they act, think and feel in certain ways… and why others may be different.
At BAPT, we want to help them do exactly that.
Originally formed in 1989, the British Association for Psychological Type (BAPT) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting knowledge of Jungian psychological type systems – mainly the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
As the best known and most trusted personality assessment on the market, the MBTI instrument offers a wealth of applications in both personal and professional awareness and development – giving all of us remarkable insight into our own personalities, and those of others. BAPT is interested in the many related Type systems as well, which have a common theoretical basis and the same breadth of applications.
BAPT aims to provide a forum for practitioners and enthusiasts of psychological type systems – from HR professionals to self-employed coaches, students and people with a simple interest in Type – to come together to discuss, promote and enjoy exploration of the endlessly compelling world of type theory.
Through conferences, regional meetings, events, webinars, workshops, ongoing publications and resource archiving, BAPT encourages lively debate in a friendly, cooperative atmosphere where members can enjoy sharing their journey and growth within this stimulating subject.
