"Life is not to be feared. It is to be understood"-Marie Curie
Understanding Equals Myers Briggs Type
In 1989, I attended a conference that literally changed my life. No religious experience, just a deepening understanding of people. It has impacted the way I interact with husband, children, family, co-workers... everyone. The conference was about the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator. Not wanting to tout a lot of psyco-babble, suffice to
say it is a system of traits. Awareness of these traits reveal a great deal about how people act.
I am an ENTP (Extravert, Intuitive, Logical, "Go-with-the-flow" person); my husband is practically the exact opposite (ISTJ).
No wonder checkbook reconciliation time was such an ordeal until we understood
our differences and why.
What's Your Type ? The official Meyers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) can only be given/interpreted by a trained professional. However there is a pretty reliable "short test" written by David Keirsey. To take his "quickie" test, and
