  • Avoid judgment of others... explain and empathize.\nAccommodate your own behaviors.\n
  • Your Personality Type: When you decide on your preference in each category, you have your own personality type, which can be expressed as a code with four letters.\n\n
  • Favorite world: Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world? This is called Extraversion (E) or Introversion (I).\n\n
  • Information: Do you prefer to focus on the basic information you take in or do you prefer to interpret and add meaning? This is called Sensing (S) or Intuition (N).\n\n
  • Decisions: When making decisions, do you prefer to first look at logic and consistency or first look at the people and special circumstances? This is called Thinking (T) or Feeling (F).\n\n\n
  • Structure: In dealing with the outside world, do you prefer to get things decided or do you prefer to stay open to new information and options? This is called Judging (J) or Perceiving (P).\n
  • These can change over time\n“Median with maturity”\nBut can help guide career choices and team collaboration\n
