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.

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 email@example.com. Please indicate your type, if you know it, when you RSVP. Lunch will be provided.
