    Proposing a Wed, Oct 1st, 7pm meetup to allow for those who could not attend our weekend meetups. http://www.meetup.com/infpnyc/events/204848052/

    September 3

  • everestgem

    To speak to Loretta M. Wollering's comments, which I agree with, perhaps a specific meet-up group date for "hard-core" enthusiasts who know their types? It would make the learning process about other types smoother, and the focus could be on a specific topic, such as teamwork roles, conflict resolution, career satisfaction, procrastination, relationships, etc.? I recommend using vignettes for a given scenerio so we could answer them based on our types. Mind you, the MBTI is about understanding the individual from a healthy perspective, so it could be eye-opening for many.

    4 · August 11

    • everestgem

      Yes Yen, let me type up a brief proposal for August 30th and we can do a repeat for a Wedensday night in September if the demand is high enough. I will send it to you on Wednesday, 8/20/14. In the meantime, I welcome people's feedback for ideas that I might integrate into the program.

      1 · August 18

    • Yen

      Ok, thanks. Kindly also post the proposal at the Aug 30th's meetup page http://www.meetup.com...­

  • annE

    i really enjoyed yesterday (being a newbie) and would like to learn more about this MBTI thing since i never heard of it before - i RSVP'ed thru this meetup and the Conversations meetup and can understand that some more involved in MBTi may have found it frustrating or unstructured - i want to express my appreciation to those who were patient and helped me get thru my first MBTI meetup - perhaps in the future those more knowledgable can be in groups separate from others like myself ( but hopefully some with experience might offer to help guide us ? ) - i wont be able to make the next one but hope to participate after aug 30th - thanks Yen :)

    Yesterday was my first meetup. Had alot of fun. Glad I came out. Feel free to add me on facebook

    2 · August 11

  • Loretta M. W.

    Nice day. Hope we could maybe get some more structure to the meet ups on the theme topic. Otherwise we all might end up rehashing the same "So, what's it like to be a XXXX type?" Not bad, but needs to move forward. Also, lots of curious folks don't know their MBTI type, which therefore makes their discussion on it insubstantial. Kinda like going to a philatelic meetup and not owning a single stamp. Just my humble opinion.

    4 · August 11

    • Yen

      Ok, next time, only those with personalities may show up! :D

      August 11

    • Yen

      Also, those personality types who like to coach can offer to host tables with M-B novices?

      August 11

  • Yen

    Good meeting new faces and greeting old ones. Come out to Bryant Park on Saturday, Aug 30th, 3-6pm to support "Conversation Day!" RSVP here. http://www.meetup.com/infpnyc/events/200241052/

    Please find me for a nametag when you arrive. I will be wearing a red button down shirt and jeans. I would also appreciate the Enthusiasts help in hosting a table, and after the large group introductions, I would appreciate everyone's help with spacing out the tables approx. 10 ft apart to prevent one conversation disturbing the next table's. Thank you.

    August 10

    • Yen

      Possible topic questions for today:
      What makes you "Happy?" : )
      Does one's definition of "Happiness" change by personality type?
      How does one's beliefs affect one's happiness?

      August 10

  • Nicole

    Really wish I could go!! I was looking forward to meeting other INFJs (apparently we actually exist according to the RSVPs) & MBTI enthusiasts in general. If there's another one before August 23rd, count me in, though!

    *cricket cricket* Well hopefully I'll be able to come next summer!

    1 · August 10

    • Yen

      Sorry you cannot make it today.

      August 10

  • annE

    OK - i answered the 72 questions and i am in no way a performer !!! but tomorrow is another day and the results may be different - did you indicate that other tests with less questions are available ? i wasnt able to access those questions and would like to so i can compare to the 72 version - tx

    1 · August 9

    • Yen

      Tip from "MBTI Enthusiast" Marvin. Thanks Marvin.

      "Following on the prerequisite of taking the test and reading about your personality description set be Yen... I know some of you are busy and since the humanmetrics link is 72 questions long - alternatively you can follow this link and take the turbo version of the test to find out your type. It is 4 questions long: http://www.socionics....­­...­

      After that, Google the "4 letter word" and read about your type... Remember it is only accurate, if you agree to a large degree about what the material says. If you find it inaccurate, just retake the turbo test or for you busy folk, unfortunately the 72 question one :)

      Thanks all,

      -Marvin"

      thanks yen - i saw these links but wasnt able to figure them out, until today - tomorrow will be interesting :)

  • Loretta M. W.

    I'm going to *try* to get there, but I am committed to serve on a board appointment tomorrow. I hope it's OK if I get there LATE - the bus and all that... Is it OK if I get there around 5:30-6 pm, or do you think it will be too late? Someone please let me know so I don't blow a set of bus tickets or distract the meeting!! Thanks

    1 · August 9

    • Conversations New Y.

      Late is fine as a large group of the MBTI Enthusiast usually stay late and go out to dinner afterwards.

      August 9

    4:30 pm - Find me (Yen) for a nametag. Use seats to form one large circle and mingle before for initial introductions.

    Ok, the weather is predicted to be good Sunday. Bring your questions about "Happiness" to ask other personality types--How do people define/practice happiness differently by personality type, by culture, by personal background, etc. :D

      Can't hide from that Extrovert in your family or office--Invite that E to the meetup! :D

      Hi Serina, Yes, the backup plan for bad weather is to hold the meetup at the usual IBM Atrium. I will re-confirm the venue on this website next Friday so please check back Friday night or Saturday.
