Showing Appreciation—ENTP

Feb 23, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ENTP. You likely acknowledge other people’s competence and innovation. Remember also to celebrate special dates for them and reward their efforts. That description reflects how people with preferences for ENTP tend to show appreciation for new ideas. Changing things up to make the organization better is a big part of what drives them. As a result, their showing outward appreciation and warmth to others may not come across as much. If your preferences are ENTP, it might help to remember that happy people tend to do better work and stay longer in their job. Happy people in our personal life also tend to stay. The trick is to remember that different things make different people happy. Want to read more about the different approaches to being thankful?

Showing Appreciation—ENFP

Feb 21, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ENFP. You appreciate others heartily with a flurry of attention. Some people may like more private, quiet recognition. That description reflects the enthusiastic, “cheerleader” approach often displayed by individuals who prefer ENFP. I actually love their positive, “can-do” attitude, but I have to admit that at times I can feel a bit overwhelmed by it. So if your preferences are ENFP, while thinking about getting your own needs met, also try to strike a balance in your approach in showing appreciation for those loved ones who might need a bit more space to celebrate in a more reflective manner.

Showing Appreciation—ESFP

Feb 16, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ESFP. You likely enjoy finding or making practical gifts or sharing events. Remember, others may not like spontaneous celebrations. That description relates to the here-and-now, friendly approach often shown by individuals who prefer ESFP. But while their way of showing appreciation may reflect their tendency to enjoy hands-on activities in the moment, people with the opposite preferences might welcome a little more planned and subdued show of appreciation. If your preferences are ESFP and you are in a relationship with someone of the opposite type, try to mix it up a bit so you both get what you want.

Showing Appreciation—ESTP

Feb 14, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ESTP. You may show appreciation for others with impromptu or unexpected actions. Be sure these surprises don’t disrupt someone’s plans. That description reflects the here-and-now, playful approach often shown by individuals who prefer ESTP. Mixing fun with work is a great way for them to break things up, maintain momentum, and continue moving forward. For others (likely those who prefer FJ and TJ), however, this spontaneous approach might be seen as an impediment to their process. So if your preferences are ESTP, check with others’ schedules before you show your appreciation using your typical fun approach so you don’t disrupt their process.

Showing Appreciation— INTP

Feb 9, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: INTP. You may not naturally tend to offer much appreciation. Observe people and decide when more positive comments and actions are needed. That description relates to the approach frequently taken by individuals who prefer INTP: analyzing the situation for logical consequences. As a result of constantly analyzing pros and cons, they may completely forget to stop and outwardly express their appreciation of others. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have colleagues who will add a note in their calendar to remind them to thank people in their life more regularly. I’m not suggesting that you fake praise—when you do, others will know. But when you notice something others have done that you find helpful, try to make it a point to verbally show that you appreciate it.

Aligning Values and Culture—the Undersung Secret to Success

Feb 7, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

This article originally appeared in HRO Today’s blog. To read the article on the original website, click here.  Written by Catherine Rains A successful career entails not only identifying a career that gets you excited, but also finding an organizational culture that meshes with your values. The culture of a particular company might be a product of its wider industry, or it might be unique to that organization. Either way, your “cultural fit” will have a deep impact on your success. If the fit is off, you may find yourself frequently experiencing difficulty communicating, feeling that you’re speaking a ‘different language’, while missing opportunities for promotions/rewards, and eventually experience stress and burnout (Hammer 2007). A solid cultural fit, on the other hand, will allow you to more fully engage with your work. The kind of work that we enjoy doing is heavily influenced by our personality type preferences. However, whether or not we gel with a certain organizational culture is just as important a factor in our enjoyment and success within a work position. This will largely be determined by our values, which can also be described by our personality type. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment identifies this (Briggs Myers 1998) with the two middle letters in our four-letter type (for example, the ‘NF’ in ENFJ).  The second MBTI “letter”—either S or N—describes how we take in information. Those preferring Sensing (S) like specific, practical and tangible information, while those preferring Intuition (N) focus on the big picture, and look for connections between facts, seeking patterns and possibilities. Contrast these to the the third MBTI “letter”–either T or F–which addresses how we make decisions. Those preferring Thinking (T) look at logical consequences, and mentally remove themselves from the situation. On the other hand those preferring Feeling (F) consider what is important to them and others involved, and mentally place themselves in the situation at question. Connecting the dots between values and culture The various combinations of these preferences align with workplace cultures in interesting ways. Here are a few examples: ● Do you want to solve complex problems? Those preferring NT (Intuition/Thinking)  often gravitate toward professions like engineering, architecture, high-tech, research, business analysis and strategy-driven consulting, and feel at home in organizations that emphasize strategic planning and innovation. ● Do you like to provide a practical service to others ? Do you like to frequently interact and collaborate...

Showing Appreciation—INFP

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: INFP. Helping and appreciating others with words and actions is likely natural for you. Interact with other people who use the same approach. That description relates to the Introverted Feeling aspect of those who prefer INFP. These are my preferences, and I definitely relate to wanting to help and appreciate others. I have to remind myself to check whether I am doing this because I want to be appreciated back instead of being helpful just for the sake of being helpful. To keep things in perspective, it helps to remind myself that I don’t always need to get thanks for doing something important for another person. Just making a difference is very often more than enough. Want to read more about the different approaches to being thankful?

Showing Appreciation—ISFP

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ISFP. You likely show your appreciation for others with thoughtful actions and gifts. Try not to feel hurt if they fail to notice or mention your efforts. That description focuses on the Sensing and Feeling parts of individuals who prefer ISFP. However, if you have ISTP preferences, you may tend to have more of a behind-the-scenes approach, and others may not notice what you have done for them. In turn, they may show appreciation in a way very different from the way you expect. Fortunately, as we get older, we tend to learn and then expect how others will respond and then hopefully not get hurt (or as hurt) if we aren’t appreciated back in the way we prefer.

Showing Appreciation—ISTP

Jan 24, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: ISTP. You probably like to do something for people rather than give them compliments. Hand out some praise. Some people need to hear your appreciation. That description comes from the practical, hands-on approach of individuals who prefer ISTP. If you have ISTP preferences, making and/or fixing things around the house might be a great way for you to show appreciation. But, keep in mind that your friends may want some time to interact with you as well. I was in a relationship for many years with someone with ISTP preferences. I had to remind myself that his way of saying he cares and showing appreciation for me was to fix or make something, while I needed to hear it more. He thought he was saying it by what he did. Fortunately, we understand that more now and have remained friends. Want to read more about the different approaches to being thankful?

Showing Appreciation—INTJ

Jan 19, 2017 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

In this series I’m delving into how each of the 16 types approaches being thankful. If you want to read a little about your own preferences ahead of time, feel free to visit this link: cpp.com/share. Today’s type: INTJ. Being self-reliant, you may not see the importance of regularly appreciating others. Make a point of sharing kind words and deeds. That description connects to the Introverted Intuitive approach often taken by individuals with preferences for INTJ. I know some INTJ colleagues who, in an effort to make a more conscious effort toward appreciating others, will add reminders to their calendar. It helps them come out of their independently innovative world so they can connect just a bit more with those who need it. Of course, if you have INTJ preferences, it’s likely important for you to get some time by yourself or with just one other person. Be careful not to fill your calendar too much or you might find yourself worn out. Want to read more about the different approaches to being thankful?
