Once again, this is the most advanced level of the MBTI that is available to the general public.

Whereas the MBTI Step I is already a versatile and effective instrument which gives individuals powerful information about their
differences, the MBTI - Step II questionnaire takes this many steps further. Simply put, you will be in a state of pleasant
disbelief when you see the added depth, clarity, and comprehensive insights that the MBTI Step II Interpretative Report gives.
In this light, it is quite important to stress that these findings are highly specific to your personality.   

More to the point, Step I describes in detail, one's four-letter personality type, Step II shows 5 sub-scales for each of the four
letter preferences. Examples of these sub-scales are as follows: expressiveness is a sub-scale of extroversion, whereas
reflectiveness is a sub-scale of introversion, etc. In addition to having those sub-scales displayed graphically, your personalized
text explains your individual outcomes on each one of these 20 sub-scales. These results are then applied to four important
components of executive development: communication, change management, decision making, and conflict management. The
report describes your style in these four areas and suggests ways of using that style more effectively.

Finally, this report integrates a summary which shows your results in brief; the average range of scores of people of your same
MBTI type; along with sophisticated statistics such as standard deviation, etc. on how you compared with 92,000 others who
took the MBTI.

Here is the complete list of the sub-scales that are reported in the American English version of MBTI Step II as well as what
each of the four letter preferences indicate.
