What we're about

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.

Myths, criticisms and the big questions

Blondini's @ The Embassy

Let’s explore the big questions! Is type inborn? Is it caused by the brain? Does my gender influence my type? Is type culturally determined? I tested as one type and now I am another, so can I change type? What if I don’t like putting people in boxes? I behave differently than my friend, so how can we be the same type? How come scientists say type self-assessment is biased? This session will address these big questions and criticisms about “type”, after which there will be time for you to ask your own related questions. SUNDAY AND MIDWEEK MEETUPS We also meet midweek on a Tuesday. We'll be running the same topic each month on both the Sunday and Tuesday - come to whichever suits.

How can understanding personality types help me? How can it help society?

Let’s discuss how type can help you in your personal life, in relationships and raising children, or in finding a job and understanding problems at work. For those of you who would like some help finding your own type, we will make time to sit down together. And bring in your ideas for the bigger picture: How can we create a type-friendly society together? For example, how would we organize schools to give all types of children equal chances? Where can we start teaching this to children today? How would we make sure all people get to work in the jobs they are best suited for? Where and how would you have liked to have learned this before now? SUNDAY AND MIDWEEK MEETUPS We also meet midweek on a Tuesday. We'll be running the same topic each month on both the Sunday and Tuesday - come to whichever suits.
