This is a group for everybody who would like to understand a bit more about themselves and the people they live or work with through sharing with others.
Maybe you would like to know why your kids always clash, or why your partner is so sensitive... or not sensitive enough. Maybe you would like to know why you or somebody you love never seems to fit in. Maybe you want to know why you have chosen a certain profession. Maybe you just want to share what you know about personality types or learn what others know.
The silly little cartoon on this page represents two people reaching out to each other over an invisible wall. This invisible wall symbolizes the communication problems that result from our inborn natural type differences (personality clashes and misunderstandings). Our group aims to help people reach out through understanding the different personality types.
The key is that once we understand that we are not all alike, we can open our minds to sharing rather than judging each other and learn to celebrate our differences. The main focus of this group is on understanding the 16 psychological types first described by Carl Jung and made popular by Myers-Briggs and David Keirsey, but with some adjustments that bring it from just descriptive accounts of our differences in which you know your "typename" to a deeper understanding of what goes on inside us that makes us so different in one way and so alike in another.
Let's discuss leadership and how it relates to type. How your type leads and likes to be led. And playfully explore a bigger issue of whether we would be better served by democracy or a "typocracy".
It is elections time again, and the last three years have been quite tumultuous, with strong leadership needed and, in many countries, sorely lacking.
So what is leadership? How does it relate to type? Can every type lead a country? How does your type lead and what do you expect from a leader?
And what about democracy? What would you think of having a “typocracy” – leadership and social structure according to psychotype, and, therefore, everybody in the position they are most skilled and most happy in?
Or does your type favour one of the other forms of government, or non-government?
If you do not know your type, doing this brief assessment may help you get an idea and make participating easier.
Please remember the four letters of the outcome of your assessment rather than names or descriptives.
Hope to see you all there.
