Group History: This group started out with a focus on INFP's only, but that was rather narrow, and the meetups were found to be ultimately more rewarding if any and all of the 16 types could interact.

These meetups are intended to be non-structured, informal and allow for maximum interaction between members. However, those who wish and feel qualified to give a presentation on a relevant topic, are welcome to schedule it in advance by contacting the organizer. Members frequently talk about subjects besides MBTI. The main topic of this Meetup serves more as a starting point for discussion rather than as an end in itself. People are free to mingle and talk with whomever they find interesting. All personality types are equally welcome. This is the place to be if you'd like to socialize with people who wish to understand oneself and other personalities better. Join us www.facebook.com/groups/331433710348657/

Psychology of Human Connection: INFJ, ENFJ, ISFJ, ESFJ

C G Jung Foundation

This Meetup is for xxFJ types, and anyone interested in them! FJ types have a feeling function that is primarily concerned with connection and commonality to others. They more easily feel the emotions of others. They tend to value social graces such as being polite, nice, friendly, considerate, and appropriate. The function that these types have is called "Extraverted Feeling" according to Jung. We will learn about Extraverted Feeling from four guests who identify themselves as Extraverted Feelers. Tonight's goal is to deepen our knowledge on how personality affects our lives, to get in touch with our natural states, as well as learn about those around us. Kawan Welth, your facilitator, is a songwriter and meditator, who is a regular at the Kristine Mann library. He feels that we can all learn from each other in our personal inner journey. His own journey includes a good deal of traveling as he focuses on the unconscious and creativity.
