TODAY!! Deadline to RSVP for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Assessment

This is a reminder that TODAY is the deadline to RSVP for the Myers-Briggs type indicator assessment.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.

Former Assistant Dean for the Office of Professional Development, Kathy Urbach, has been conducting the Myers-Briggs assessments for several years. She will be at the law school on Thursday, February 27, from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: Due to an overwhelming response, we have moved the program to Room LL80. The assessment is fun and can be quite eye-opening.

Space is still limited; therefore, we are asking students to RSVP if they plan to attend. Please RSVP by noon TODAY to Jina Scinta at jina.scinta@louisville.edu. Please indicate your type, if you know it, when you RSVP. Lunch will be provided.
