APTi Ethical Standards: Additional Guidelines for Type Practitioners

8. Use psychological type assessments and information for the benefit of the person you are helping or teaching. Make clear the purpose of using a type model.

Type information can be used to manipulate people, put them down, or deny them opportunities. It is against APTi’s ethical principles to use psychological type information in ways that are detrimental to people. Use type models appropriately to promote self-understanding, support personal effectiveness and growth, further the understanding of differences among people, and facilitate better teamwork and relationships.
