Appreciating the Holidays from People Who Prefer Introverted Intuition: Visioning (INTJ and INFJ)

Dec 19, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 1 comment

Thinking about the long-term future is an amazing gift that people who prefer introverted Intuition provide. Those of us who don’t use introverted Intuition regularly might want to consider how the money we spend and the food we eat will affect things down the road. Do we need to spend that much on the gifts we are buying, or are there other ways to celebrate the holidays that will make more meaningful, long-term effects? Could we spend more on gifts that will have a lasting impact on what we and our family really need? It’s often about considering the future implications of the decisions we make.

Brainstorming possibilities and thinking outside the box is what people who prefer extraverted Intuition give us.

Dec 13, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Appreciating Holiday Gifts from People Who Prefer Extraverted Sensing (ESTP and ESFP): Experiencing

Dec 12, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Appreciating the here and now is a wonderful gift from people who prefer extraverted Sensing. Those of us who don’t use extraverted Sensing regularly can learn how to sit back and just breathe in everything that is happening around us. Instead of worrying about what needs to get done for the big family meal coming up, we could spend time seeing, touching, smelling, hearing, and tasting the “present moment.” When I remember to do this I am amazed at how much there is to enjoy all around me, especially during the holiday season.

Appreciating the Holidays and the Eight Dominant Functions

Dec 10, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

I love this time of year—the music, the weather, the lights, the food… I could keep going. What I hate about the holidays is that they go by so fast. I tend to get a bit sad once it’s all over. In an effort to help us all appreciate the holidays (whichever ones we may celebrate) just a bit more, I thought I would write in upcoming blogs about what we can learn from people with each particular MBTI® dominant function and the gifts they provide. For more information on the eight dominant functions, check out Introduction to Type® Dynamics and...

CPP Separates Myth from Fact about World’s Most Popular Personality Assessment

Dec 6, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In order to clear up some of the more common misconceptions regarding the Myers-Briggs personality assessment’s history, theoretical underpinnings, proper use and research-based foundation,  we’ve decided to debunk the folk tales in infographic format! “The Myers-Briggs instrument is a serious tool used for serious purposes,” said Jennifer Overbo, Director of MBTI Product Strategy, CPP. “However, most people who take the assessment find the exercise of self-exploration to be engaging and fun – and many choose to go deeper and learn more about the theory behind it. So we’re planning on having some fun with this as well.” The first in a four part series of Folk Tales & True Stories infographics, we wanted to help spread the word about why Myers-Briggs assessment results: Should not be used for hiring or selection Should be viewed as an important part of the personality puzzle, but not the totality of one’s unique personality Tell you how a certain profession’s work environment will comport with your personality preferences, but not whether or not you’ll be successful in that career Don’t say that we’re strictly Introverted or Extraverted, Thinking or Feeling… “When used correctly, the MBTI assessment provides invaluable insight that helps individuals perform better and organizations operate more cohesively,” said Jeff Hayes, President, CPP, Inc. “However, if you try to tighten a screw with a hammer, you’ll end up frustrated. Likewise, we often find that criticism of the instrument actually stems from misconceptions about what it does, and what it should be used for.” Feel free to share your story involving the MBTI tool on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, using the campaign hashtag #MBTItypestory, and visit www.mbtiparty.com to celebrate its 70th anniversary!   View the PDF of the Folk Tales & True Stories infographic...
