Experiencing Key Hidden Components in the Individuation Process—Session Overview from the 2013 APTi International Conference

Sep 19, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Alex MacFarlane shared with us the importance of individuation/transcendence. Data show us that only about 10% of us have reached this state. Neuroscience shows us that individuated people use more of their brain—integration of the frontal cortex, higher activity in the frontal-parietal default mode, and so on. The non-neuroscience part tells us that individuation leads to great inner peace, a sense of wisdom, kindness to others, being more useful to the world, authentic love, and compassion. Alex reminded the group that so many of us are trying to find ourselves, but instead are walking into walls. One question posed, “Is our inner voice coming from our transcendent part or our self-centered and selfish ego?” This session had deep implications and reminded me to remember to practice every day taking time to sit with myself and identify what I am thinking and feeling and what that really means. Am I making a bigger deal out of my worries than they deserve? Am I not taking something seriously enough? Am I trying to control too many things? Am I being too accommodating when I should make more of a statement? Connecting is not just about connecting with another person. It is also about connecting with ourselves. Type can help us understand both of those connections more...

Bringing Type Dynamics to Life for Practitioners and End Users—Session Overview from the 2013 APTi International Conference

Sep 12, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Ingrid Manning from OPP led another well-attended session at the conference. We spent a lot of the session reviewing type dynamics and then applying it in the areas of communication and decision making. I had never heard Ingrid speak before and was so impressed. The room was a mix of different levels of type experience—from people who use type dynamics regularly to one person who had never heard of type dynamics. Ingrid did a nice job of getting everyone up to speed and to appreciate how rich the MBTI® tool can be if you take it to the next level. One of my favorite (by far) resources on this topic is Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development by Katharine Myers and Linda Kirby. It’s definitely worth checking out if you want to take a deeper dive into...

Type? Culture? How to Tell Them Apart—Session Overview from the 2013 APTi International Conference

Sep 5, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

It was great to hear about the most current empirical research and applied use of the MBTI® tool. Betsy Kendall from OPP included the Cultural Orientation Framework questionnaire as part of this new work. This was one of the most attended sessions of the conference. We learned that while culture is mostly on the surface like the outer skin of an onion, type is universal to all of us. The big aha! moment: individuals of the same MBTI type have more in common with people of that same type all over the world than do people of a different type in the same country. Wow! This kind of data really helps us see that type can be a bridge across cultures. You might want to check out Type and Culture by Linda Kirby, Betsy Kendall, and Nancy...

Driving Change in Global Enterprises—Session Overview from the 2013 APTi International Conference

Aug 27, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

I was interested to learn about the use of type and the MBTI® tool at Solectron and Cisco Systems. Sharon Richmond, Karon Hoban, and Judy Issokson walked us through these two cases. They stressed the importance of having the support of leadership to help type initiatives make a valuable impact. Buy-in and accountability can make or break type programs focused on change and leadership development. The following six steps were suggested: Make it easy. Don’t overcomplicate things; don’t try to do everything at once. Mind your business. What does your company do, and how will the use of the MBTI tool help it do it better? Don’t call it change management. People will assume they have to change or they are at risk. Stress accountability. Be clear about what happens if champions drop the ball. Be demanding. Challenge the team/organization to make real change that is ongoing. Protect the innocent. Help people...

Selling Brain-Savvy Type—Session Overview from the 2013 APTi International Conference

Aug 20, 2013 in MBTI Talk | 1 comment

This session by Dario Nardi from UCLA included lots of real evidence from neuroscience in the validation of personality type. I found it interesting to learn that individuals of the same type have most of the same brain activity in common, keeping in mind that no two people have the exact same brain pattern. Also, it takes more brain activity for those of us who prefer Intuition to use our non-preferred hand than for those who prefer Sensing, if we are interested in using it well. I’m sure I’m only barely covering this topic. To learn more, check out Dario’s book: Neuroscience of Personality: Brain Savvy Insights for All Types of People. Congratulations to Dario for winning the 2013 APTi Innovations...
