Dating by mbti type
It is not unusual for sessions to sell out months in advance.People come from all over the world to get certified.There were three college counselors, five HR reps, and a half-dozen "executive talent managers" from Fortune 500 companies. I was in an unusual position that week: Attending the certification program had not been my idea.Rather, I had been told that MBTI certification was a prerequisite to accessing the personal papers of Isabel Briggs Myers, a woman about whom very little is known except that she designed the type indicator in the final days of World War II.As INTJs intuitively form impressions about the world, they naturally want to express them via their auxiliary Te.And because INTJs often prefer expressing themselves orally rather than in writing, they seek out others interested in hearing their knowledge and insights (they resemble INFJs in this respect).
Because their first job is to function as Intuitive Perceivers rather than as Judgers or actors, operating in a passive mode of perception is actually the sort of “work” they are meant to be doing, work that can ultimately benefit society.
Jung did state that his personality classifications were more rough estimates than actual types, but in the 1940s Katherine Briggs and daughter Isabel Briggs Myers used this as the basis in creating a personality test.
However, neither of them had any actual psychology training, so they collaborated with an HR manager from a Philadelphia bank.
Although not afraid to assert themselves via their auxiliary function, Extraverted Thinking (Te), the INTJ is naturally more passive, even somewhat phlegmatic in his or her presentation.
More proactive types, such as ENTJs, might even consider the INTJ a bit lazy or apathetic.
