Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Perceiving

Nov 12, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 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?

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Judging

Nov 7, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 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 MBTI Talk | 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 MBTI Talk | 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.

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Intuition

Oct 24, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Sensing or Intuition: How we take in information People with a preference for Intuition tend to trust their gut, or sixth sense, instead of specific detailed information. Keep in mind that might not make sense to a partner who prefers Sensing and needs concrete information presented in order, step by step. Try to avoid using metaphors or going off on a tangent when you are explaining something to a partner who prefers Sensing, and make sure you start at the beginning whenever you are telling a story. People with a preference for Intuition tend to start anywhere, and you may lose a partner who prefers Sensing right from the start—and end up getting asked to explain how you got there, anyway.

Relationships and Type: If You Prefer Sensing

Oct 22, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Sensing or Intuition: How we take in information People who prefer Sensing tend to trust information delivered in a sequential, step-by-step manner. With a partner who prefers Intuition, try to let him or her explain things in his or her own way. This requires some level of trust and may be difficult advice to follow. Be careful not to interrupt with questions like, “Is all that really going on in your head?” or “That seems so unrealistic,” while also rolling your eyes. Just listen and let the Intuitive process happen. It is quite a ride sometimes. It is important to note that talking using lots of details and asking lots of specific questions can be frustrating for an Intuitive partner. Want to learn more about type and relationships?
