What we're about

The Portland Chapter of the Association for Psychological Type (PAPT) is for anyone interested in learning more about personality type for professional or personal reasons. Together we learn about the patterns of human behavior so we can understand ourselves and others better. We are a community of welcoming folks. It doesn’t matter how little or how much you know about type, come to a meeting and learn something new.

Everyone is welcome to join the 5 programs we offer each year. If you would like to join PAPT for $65 per year there will be no charge to attend programs. If you would rather not become a member and pay as you attend each program, the charge will be $20 per program ($5 for students). If you plan to attend all the programs, we recommend you become a member as you will save $35 per year (5 programs x $20 = $100 vs $65 annual membership fee). In addition to our PAPT programs, as a PAPT Chapter Member you will also receive free attendance to a selection of Association for Psychological Type international (APTi) programs.

Practical Applications of Jung’s Theory in a World of Remote Work

Practical Applications of Jung’s Theory, and the Eight Mental Processes,
in a World of Remote Work

Presented by Cynthia S. Paris

As practitioners, we are learning more and more that the gold, the real power, of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, comes from the theory behind the instrument, Psychological Types. However, as practitioners, we are often challenged to teach and practically apply Jung's Eight Functions (Mental Processes, Cognitive Processes) with teams and leaders when participants are used to thinking in terms of the 4-letters of Type and MBTI Preferences. This is especially true in a world where many teams are working remotely and there is a lot to achieve in a short time frame.

In this program, participants will learn how to introduce Jung's theoretical framework and the mental processes through quick and easy techniques. Participants will see how to put Psychological Type to work using vetted tools and products, and corresponding exercises, that help to integrate the learning. And, we will introduce how to adapt and facilitate these exercises (some of which are well-known and quite often used, like the Z-Problem solving model) with remote teams using Zoom breakout rooms and third-party applications.

Participants will walk away with handouts and fresh ideas for facilitating Psychological Types for effective teamwork and leadership development in our new, and often remote, world of work.

Type & Innovation: How to Get Everyone’s Best Ideas

Online event

Portland Chapter, Assoc. for Psychological Type International Presents:

Type and Innovation: How to Get Everyone’s Best Ideas

Presenter: Pam Rechel

*Note this is a special program that is being offered free of charge to all APTi chapter members signed up through Meetup*

Have you ever been in a meeting where the intention was to come up with something “innovative, new, not the same thing we’ve always done” and what happened was that the introverts left the brainstorming meetings feeling completely shut out; the very creative, never-been-done before great idea was shot down with all the reasons that it couldn’t work and you never got to the details needed to know the plan could work. Everyone left demoralized and many said it was a complete waste of time.

This presentation, based on the Type Coach Type and Innovation models, will reveal how to get everyone’s participation in all parts of the process and how to structure the meetings to get an effective approach to innovation.
