Meet Rachel Birkenseer – Your Broadway Musical Fan/Customer Relations Advisor

Jan 7, 2014 in Eye on Edu | 1 comment

What’s your MBTI® Type? ISFP How long have you been at CPP? In February 2014, it will be 13 years. Why do you like working at CPP?  CPP is like my home, I practically grew up here.  The atmosphere and culture is what I love best though.  I love the department I work in!   I also really enjoy our products.  I see such value in what they offer and I’ve learned a lot about myself. Have you had a memorable moment at CPP or while working here? If so, could you share it with us? I love the back pack drive we participate in every year.  We have the opportunity to put together a back pack for kids in need with all of the school supplies they need to get them started for a successful school year.  Growing up, this was always expensive for my parents to provide for us, so this is dear to my heart and I’m honored to participate every year.  Plus I love school supplies! Have you had a memorable experience with a customer before? Can you share?  There have been many memorable experiences throughout the years.  I know many customers pretty well and it’s such a treat when I get to talk to them.  It’s like catching up with an old friend you haven’t spoken to in a while.  I love when I can get a customer to laugh and just have a good time on the phone.  They may be calling in with a seemingly mundane task or are frustrated but I want them to relax and know I want to help them get their issue resolved.  And we might as well laugh while we do it. What’s your favorite hobby? I am a huge movie lover, especially musicals.  If I could live in a musical I would!  I also love crocheting, traveling, and hiking. What is your favorite quote? “Don’t panic” – The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy How do u you use the information you know about your type to communicate effectively with customers?  Knowing about type helps me, I hope, to be more patient when communicating.  Also to realize when I’m getting too caught up in the details or being too literal.  I try to be conscious of the need to flex my type when necessary. How would people communicate in a perfect world? Patience, understanding, and active listening. Anything else...

Beyond “Book Learnin’”: How Knowing Your Personality Type Can Help You Have a Great Extracurricular Experience

Nov 16, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

College, as they say, “ain’t just book learnin’.” In some careers, extracurricular activities carry as much or more weight than GPA, and can often teach us more about the actual work environment than lectures or coursework. Understanding your personality type, as described by the Myers-Briggs® (MBTI®) assessment, can help you decide where to focus extracurricular efforts.

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Perceiving

Nov 12, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

Judging or Perceiving: How we organize our external world In relationships, people with the Perceiving preference might want to save the decision making for later so they can continue to take in more information. Consider how frustrating this can be for someone who wants you to “step up to the plate and swing, for goodness sake!” Try taking turns planning activities with your partner so you both stay invested in your relationship. Write up your agenda for a day together so your partner sees that you have made the effort. And never use this preference as an excuse for being late. If you’re interested in taking the MBTI® assessment, visit http://www.mbtionline.com. When responding to the items, remember to answer as what is called your “shoes-off self.” That means you should try to shed the roles and expectations you have at work and at home and simply answer as yourself. Also, try to work quickly; if you can’t decide on a particular item, just go ahead and skip it. Want to learn more about type and relationships?

INFJ – I’ve got a vision for how to make the world a better place, and I’ll tell you about it when I’ve thoroughly thought it through

Nov 8, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 30 comments

Written by Catherine Rains With a dominant of Introverted Intuition, INFJ types will say that they will get a hunch about what to do next, and after they have thought this vision through, they will share it with those that need to know.  However, at this point, it will be very hard to change their minds if you disagree with them.  This type is motivated to make a difference in the world, but often one person at a time, and the kinds of careers they identified reflect this desire:  Bookstore Owner, Librarian (very popular career choice for INFJ types), Writer, Trainer, Teacher, Lawyer and Human Resources. Call to those of you who prefer INFJ – what others careers have you been attracted to?  The more we add to this list the better and feel free to repeat what is already listed above.  We’re looking for the most comprehensive list possible so that others types fully understand what careers feel most natural to those of you who prefer...

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Judging

Nov 7, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

Judging or Perceiving: How we organize our external world First off, Judging is not about being judgmental; it is about how you come to make judgments or decisions (like a judge might come to a decision). People with a preference for Judging generally like closure; they like things settled. In a relationship, if you have this preference, you might come across as trying to force your partner to come to a decision and telling him or her what to do—being bossy, pushy, etc. Of course, this will not go over too well with the partner who doesn’t want to feel boxed into making a decision just yet. Instead, ask yourself, “Do I really need the decision made right now, or can it wait just a bit longer?” Step back and seriously consider what would really happen if that decision were not made at that exact moment.

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Feeling

Nov 5, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

Thinking or Feeling: How we make decisions The Feeling preference is about making decisions based on how they will affect others. In a relationship, it could mean that you may need to set better boundaries, as well as being sure to take care of your own needs instead of always trying to take care of your partner’s needs. If you can do this, you can lessen the frustration you may be feeling about not getting enough of what you need in the relationship. It is important for those of us who prefer Feeling to work on being more direct about things that we do and don’t like. We tend to dilute our message when we are unhappy about something and let it all bottle up. Then, when we think we can’t take it anymore, we sometimes overreact to something barely related to what upset us in the first place. It really helps to take time each week to talk over issues with your partner…especially the uncomfortable issues! Want to learn more about type and relationships?

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Thinking

Oct 29, 2013 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

Thinking or Feeling: How we make decisions The Thinking preference is about making decisions logically and analytically. People who use this preference sometimes come off as cold and impersonal, but that is generally not their intent. In a relationship, saying “I love you” and meaning it are important, especially if your partner has a preference for Feeling. Consider when was the last time you said it and when it might be most meaningful to say it again (and again). Also, be aware that your “questioning” and/or “critical” style may not go over too well if you don’t also try to be accommodating and accepting from time to time.
