• MIDWEEK: So many theories about personality: which is best?

    Blondini's @ The Embassy

    Personality or psychological type theory, as we know it, started nearly a century ago with Carl Jung. Since then it has evolved and branched out. This meetup will help you distinguish between legitimate type theories and their terminology, and those that are based on misconceptions. We will also give you some guidelines as to which assessments to use or not to use. The first of three meetups to help you get the most out of “Type”. We will start with putting it all together, so as to help you navigate through the mountain of information that keeps appearing in the media. There will be time for questions and discussion related to these differences and assessments, but we will leave the big questions about “type” for July. 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.

  • 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.
