What is personality?• The totality of an individuals behavioral and emotional characteristics (Webster’s).• A dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, motivations, and behaviors in various situations (Ryckman 2004).• The word "personality" originates from the Latin persona, which means mask. Significantly, in the theatre of the ancient Latin speaking world, the mask was not used as a plot device to disguise the identity of a character, but rather was a convention employed to represent or typify that character (www.wikipedia.com).

    4. 4. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator• The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives.• The essence of the theory is what seems to be random variation in behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment (www.myersbriggs.org).

    14. 14. Feeler versus Thinker Feeler and Thinker How do you make decisions?Thinkers – tend to base their decisions on logic – use "true or false, if-then" connections – objective analysis of cause and effect – just the factsFeelers – tend to base their decisions primarily on values – use "more or less & better-worse" evaluations – subjective evaluation of person centered concerns – take into account others.• It could be said that thinkers decide with their heads, while feelers decide with their hearts.
