The Bay Area Association for Psychological Type (BAAPT) was formed in 1984 to promote the understanding, constructive use, and valuing of human diversity through the study and application of Carl Jung’s theory of Psychological Type.  Our interests include the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), David Keirsey's work on Temperament, and a variety of typology applications.

BAAPT is a volunteer-based non-profit organization, and is a chapter of APTi, the Association for Psychological Type International. We welcome all people who are interested in using psychological type personally or professionally.  We invite you to join our monthly program meetings held September through May, where local, national, and international professionals offer presentations to our group of delightful and articulate psychological type enthusiasts!

Find us at, where you will see our complete calendar of events, detailed descriptions of our programs, workshops and webinars, and links to our other social media profiles  To join BAAPT, go to We hope to see you soon!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
