P10 Reflective Entry

After another week ive come to write my reflective entry.

I have to agree with your previous comment about different people having different concepts about what personality type they are and whether they are firmly rooted to that idea or they believe they change like me. Ive especially noticed this with my closer friends. I've indirectly been talking to them on this issue. When I ask them what they think of me their views generally seemed to be coherrent with mine; although they didnt agree with my view that my personlaity type was very fluid. I guess it just depends on the context in which you talk in. Some of my friends see me in a certain way than others.

As for your comments about employers I'll keep that in mind and make sure I just keep the MBTI for my own personal realtionships with peolpe. I havent really categorised people yet; in some ways I find it quite hard. Its kind of hard to ask them something like:

"If you had a gun to your head would you say that you were E or I in this dimension :D"

Its just hard to get people to open up about these things especially if they think its a load of rubbish; could use a few tips?

    Hi Harun

    I do like reading your blog entries – they are refreshingly candid & direct! Don’t be surprised if some people do respond cynically to MBTi & other psychological frameworks/models. I don’t think there is anything wrong with healthy skepticism; MBTi can provide a lens through which you understand yourself and others, but there are other factors at play and I would never suggest a rigid/inflexible interpretation of type theory.

    If you are interested in finding out how others respond to the MBTi dichotomies, then you could present them as scenarios e.g. ‘If you had an unexpected day off, how would you spend it’. Listen to the language people use in their response as this can offer hints as to preference. Again, with the T-F dimension, is there a dominance of expressive, conciliatory language or does the individual use words that seem more detached or objective?

    Let me know how you fare…
