Each individual has a core nature, a set of perceptions, priorities, values and meanings that are present at birth, identifiable at an early age and do not change much across time. This manner of processing and responding may be similar to, or quite different from:

  • A parent
  • A sibling
  • A spouse
  • A child
  • A therapist

NPI counselors use a questionnaire based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® to help each client identify his or her natural and normal manner of processing and responding.

In individual, couple and counseling sessions, information on natural differences often leads to an increase in self understanding and acceptance as well as a better understanding and acceptance of the nature of significant others that naturally differ from them.


Please note: Although type profiles are usually accurate, some are not. Errors in scoring choices may come from a lack of self-awareness, or from associating a meaning to the terms used that differs from that which the test designer intended.

Such discrepancies are usually identified and corrected during a client or clients first counseling session. However, with that being said, no guarantee can be given regarding the accuracy of an individual’s scoring profile.
