What we’re about

The greater San Francisco Bay Area Association for Psychological Type (BAAPT) promotes 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 (formed in 1984), and is the San Francisco/Silicon Valley/East Bay 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.We hope to see you soon!

Keep in mind that Meetup members are not BAAPT members unless you've paid the annual dues. You may ask, why, then, would I want to join BAAPT?
For one thing, BAAPT Members enjoy discounts on meeting attendance! (Meetup group members may attend one BAAPT program free of charge as the guest of our Meetup group hosts! Just remember to find one of us at the meeting to say "Hi! I'm here through Meetup!".)
