Enough about me, what do you think of me? Myers-Briggs & the liberty movement

A personality test is one of the best excuses to ramble on & on about yourself.  What's more fun that that?  Myers-Briggs is probably the most-used personality test in the world.  This test assigns you a 4-letter code which represents your preferences in several personality dimensions: Introversion versus Extroversion, Sensing versus iNtuition, Thinking versus Feeling, and Judging versus Perceiving.  The ideas are based on work by Carl Jung and I'll explain the letters & their interactions during this Meetup on August 5th. 

While you could call this a borderline liberty topic, it's important to understand yourself, your biases & the same for others to whom you want to explain the benefits of a free society.  It is actually an important topic for activists.  You can't bring someone over to your side unless you first meet them on their turf and that means accepting, not dismissing, their basic premises and patterns.  Without spoiling it, I'm going to predict that most liberty activists fall into a very small number of the 16 possible Myers-Briggs categories and that has implications for how we promote ideas.

The above link is to a free online Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test.  It should take about 15 minutes to complete (they usually advise going with your 'gut' reaction to each question without changing any answers).  Please complete the test and bring your 4-letter code to the meetup so we can assess the "MBTI diversity" of our group.

      Jim, I won't be there on the 5th but you can meet. My plan was to send an outline for a possible set of "How The Fed Works" videos for group comments.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
