Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Feeling

Jun 28, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

To conclude this series on decision making with the MBTI® mental processes and the eight patterns of mental activity, we come to introverted Feeling (Fi), which is about making decisions in line with the inner values that guide and drive us. When deciding where you want to go on vacation this summer, consider these Fi questions: What do I want to do this summer? (This may be different than what everyone else wants to do.) What vacation options connect best with my inner values? Which vacation will make the biggest impact on my life, and what’s most important to me? What vacation plans can also help me help others? “Dominant introverted Feeling types naturally function as the conscience of a group. They filter every decision, behavior, and statement through their internal values and consistently work to support and realize them in their lives.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Feeling (Fi) during decision making are ISFP and INFP. The types that might forget to use Fi during decision making are ENTJ and ESTJ.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Feeling

Jun 23, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

We explored the Perceiving patterns of mental activity (Se, Si, Ne, Ni) and half of the Judging patterns (Te, Ti) in our search for that perfect summer vacation. It is now time to finish it off with Feeling, starting with extraverted Feeling (Fe), which is about making decisions taking into account how our decisions will affect others. As you decide where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Fe questions: What will I do to include the ideas of others who may join us? Which kind of vacation will bring us together the most? What vacation options might allow me to also contribute to the lives of others? What summer vacation choices will make everyone happy? “Dominant extraverted Feeling types are natural facilitators of people—sympathetic, expressive, and compassionate. Their values are clear, and they express them in their everyday interactions.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Feeling (Fe) during decision making are ESFJ and ENFJ. The types that might forget to use Fe during decision making are INTP and ISTP.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Thinking

Jun 21, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Continuing with the Judging patterns of mental activity in our quest for the perfect summer vacation, we come next to introverted Thinking (Ti), which is about creating internal order and logic to find the “correct” answer to problems. As you continue to think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Ti questions: What’s right and wrong with the choices I’m considering? (Allow yourself to be critical.) What’s wrong with the options others are bringing up? (Be careful not to be too critical.) What data can I explore that can help justify my vacation decision? When is the best time to be tough and just help everyone decide already? “Dominant introverted Thinking types are natural logicians—detached, quick to order and assimilate new information, reflective. Their judgment is directed to creating internal order in their ideas and principles.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Thinking (Ti) during decision making are ISTP and INTP. The types that might forget to use Ti during decision making are ENFJ and ESFJ.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Thinking

Jun 16, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

I have spent time in the past several posts highlighting the importance of different ways to take in information (Perceiving). Once that has happened, it’s time to evaluate that information. If this doesn’t happen, then usually nothing gets done, no vacation plans will be made. Evaluating information is about using Thinking and Feeling. Extraverted Thinking (Te) helps us evaluate that information in a logical and objective way. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider Te questions like: What will the vacation cost, and how will I pay for it? Will I get the best “bang for my buck” on the vacation options I’m considering? What excursions will I organize to reasonably meet everyone’s needs equally? What contingency plans will I need to make to ensure everything goes off like I’ve planned? “Dominant extraverted Thinking types are natural leaders—quick, assertive, and decisive. Their judgments are clear and logical; they seldom have second thoughts.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Thinking (Te) during decision making are ESTJ and ENTJ. The types that might forget to use Te during decision making are INFP and ISFP.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Intuition

Jun 14, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In my previous post I covered extraverted Intuition. It’s now time to address introverted Intuition (Ni). While there is a similar focus on big-picture possibilities, introverted Intuition most often helps us perceive the big picture as it relates to long-term possibilities. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Ni questions: What is the most unique and unusual vacation experience I can imagine? What would be a vacation that I would be one of the first of people I know to try out? Which vacation experience would connect best with my long-term vision of finding meaning? What vacation can I envision that will have the most long-term impact on my life? “Dominant introverted Intuitive types refuse to act until their internal picture is formed. They will read, think, and explore internal perceptions and images, until suddenly, all is clear. From there, action is easy and definite. Changing their insight at this point, however, is difficult because it is whole, complete, and complex.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Intuition (Ni) during decision making are INTJ and INFJ. The types that might forget to use Ni during decision making are ESFP and ESTP.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Intuition

Jun 9, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Once you have spent time considering the facts and details during decision making (more about that in our previous blog post here), it’s important to consider the possibilities beyond the “what is.” Extraverted Intuition (Ne) most often helps us consider the possibilities beyond what is right in front of us and what we have learned from the past. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Ne questions: How can I keep my options open regarding possible vacation activities and experiences, and how long I want the vacation to go? What would be new and different from what I’ve done before? How can I take a few small risks here and there? What are the newest and most exciting locations people are talking about? “Dominant extraverted Intuitive types are stimulated to mental creativity by external experience. They develop their insights by plunging into action, gathering information and experiences, and responding creatively to changing events and new ideas.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Intuition (Ne) during decision making are ENFP and ENTP. The types that might forget to use Ne during decision making are ISTJ and ISFJ.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Sensing

Jun 7, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Of course, using Sensing plays a huge role in any decision we make regardless of our preferences. In my previous post I covered extraverted Sensing. It’s now time to address introverted Sensing (Si). While it indicates a similar focus on facts and details, introverted Sensing most often perceives those facts and details as they relate to specifics from the past. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Si questions: Where have I gone on vacation in the past? How might what I’ve learned from past vacations help me with my next one? What did I like and not like about past vacations? Who do I trust that could share his or her experience on vacations I’m considering? “Dominant introverted Sensing types approach problem-solving by gathering a great deal of specific, realistic, relevant information and filtering it through their personal experience and knowledge. Their decisions and actions are deliberate, definite, carefully considered, and therefore firm.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Sensing (Si) during decision making are ISTJ and ISFJ. The types that might forget to use Si during decision making are ENFP and ENTP.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Sensing

Jun 3, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

When I think about the best decisions I have made in my life, it usually comes down to taking a more balanced approach to whatever I’m deciding. That balanced approach often comes easier when we consider using all four of our mental processes (Sensing, Intuition, Thinking, and Feeling) along with the attitudes of each (Extraversion and Introversion). Put that all together and you get the eight MBTI® patterns of mental activity (Se, Si, Ne, Ni, Te, Ti, Fe, Fi). If you want to read more about these eight patterns, I recommend the Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development booklet written by Katherine D. Myers and Linda Kirby. This blog series will cover how using these eight patterns of mental activity can help you make better decisions. Because summer is fast approaching, I thought I would focus on how you can use these eight patterns to decide where you want to go on vacation. I’m going to start with extraverted Sensing (Se) and move on from there. Extraverted Sensing is about seeing the details in the world in the present moment. As you think about where you might go on vacation this summer, consider Se questions like: What do I feel like doing right now? What is most realistic considering all the facts and details of my vacation options? How will where I want to go this summer fit in with other plans that are already in place? Which vacation options give me the best opportunity to experience the most Sensing variety (hiking, interacting with nature, making things, food experiences, etc.)? “Dominant extraverted Sensing types approach problem-solving by quickly assessing the realities and plunging into action to bring about desired results, manipulating whatever is at hand. They focus on responding quickly and expediently to the immediate reality.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. By the way, the MBTI types that typically rely the most on extraverted Sensing (Se) during decision making are ESTP and ESFP. The types that might forget or shortchange Se during decision making are INTJ and INFJ. To read more, check out the other blog in this summer series: I’m Back and Summer Is Almost...

I’m Back and Summer Is Almost Here!

Jun 1, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 1 comment

Hello, everyone. I’m back and writing again after my very busy travel schedule has finally slowed down just a little. Thanks so much to Mathew David Pauley for filling in on my blog duties with his very insightful writing. I loved reading his posts as I traveled from city to city. I’m going to continue Mathew’s emphasis on the mental processes in this next blog series. As I sit back and get ready to write once more, I’m a bit startled by how fast the year is going by. It seems like just yesterday I was singing Auld Lang Syne with a small group on New Year’s Eve. I blinked, and here we are approaching summer 2016! I’m guessing some people already have their summer vacation plans made and some don’t. Our vacation plans are set, with a celebration of my parents’ 60th anniversary in Hawaii along with a trip to see other family members in Seattle. For my next series, I thought I would offer ideas you could consider for your summer plans. As with making any decision, remembering how our MBTI® mental processes can help us is always a good place to start. Starting with Sensing and then moving to Intuition (our Perceiving mental processes that help us take in information) and then continuing to Thinking and then Feeling (our Judging mental processes that help us evaluate information) gives us a more balanced approach to decision making. I led a session on this very topic at last year’s MBTI® Users Conference. In case you want to learn more about the upcoming 2016 MBTI® Users Conference, click here. Stay tuned… Also, here is Mathew David Pauley’s blog series on type dynamics and the mental processes, in case you’re interested: Type at the Family Conference Table: In the Grip Type at the Family Conference Table: Extraverted Sensing Type at the Family Conference Table: Extraverted Feeling Type at the Family Conference Table: Introverted Thinking Type at the Family Conference Table: Extraverted Intuition Type at the Family Conference Table: Introverted Sensing Type at the Family Conference Table: Introverted Feeling Type at the Family Conference Table: Extraverted Thinking Type at the Family Conference Table    ...

Type at the Family Conference Table: In the Grip

May 27, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Written by Mathew David Pauley, JD, MA, MDR This is the final post in my 10-part blog series, “Type at the Family Conference Table,” and I would like to begin by thanking CPP for a great collaboration throughout my participation in the MBTI® Certification Program and throughout these posts. Certification Trainer Michael Segovia and his team went out of their way to assist me during the program (which was sort of a birthday present), increasing the pressure for me to have the week go well!). I would also like to thank Associate Marketing Manager, Eugeniá Wright, for all of her assistance in putting together this blog series. I came to learn about personality type in the course of my work in a very niche field in healthcare of clinical ethics consultation and have found it very useful. This blog series has focused thus far on individuals in the hospital who (1) are typically stressed out and often even traumatized, and (2) are called upon to make significantly important and impactful decisions for themselves and sometimes the people they love. This is the tragic nature of medical decision making. In an attempt now to expand my view, I want to close the series with a related look at the hospital itself. In September 2015 I attended two very different conference sessions. The first was at the 2015 MBTI® Users Conference, where we looked at the MBTI type preferences of different business cultures. For example, technology and engineering tend to reflect an NT culture, with values and norms promoted by Intuitive Thinking types. Healthcare, on the other hand, is by and large an SF culture, valuing genuine communication, collaboration, and providing practical care to people. Obviously, aspects of all type preferences are present in a hospital, but looking at the mission statements and values posted on the walls, and the unifying fact that every person there is there to help people, the culture certainly skews toward Sensing and Feeling. At another conference for healthcare leaders in California, an emergency room physician talked about “institutional trauma,” the concept that just as physical trauma can impact individuals, an institution like a hospital can suffer trauma throughout its systems too. Distrust among colleagues increases and communication decreases. The organization may become more risk averse and unwilling to meet the needs of some of its customers on the fringes. The narrative of the trauma can get repeated and...
