Handedness exercise

Handedness Exercise

Use your preferred hand to sign your name on a sheet of paper.

Now use your other hand to sign your name on a sheet of paper, and compare.

We can accomplish the task of signing our names with either hand, but the preferred hand will always be more natural, comfortable, and automatic.


Jung s theory

Jung’s Theory

We will look at four pairs of opposites—like our right and left hands. We all use both sides of each pair, but one is our natural preference.

Jung believed that our preferences do not change; they stay the same over our lifetime.

What changes is how we use our preferences, the environment’s impact on how our types manifest, and often the accuracy with which we can measure the preferences.

For the Visual Learners…

Maybe it would be a good idea to look at how you manage your time so that you don’t get your work in late again, and perhaps you could talk to her about your work load if it is still too much after that.

Warning!!

What you are about to see is a dramatization portrayed by trained actors! It illustrates a very stereotypical conversation between Thinking and Feeling types…

TERRIBLE!! My boss yelled at me because I turned my work in 5 minutes late, and I have way too much to do, and I’m so frustrated because I don’t want her to think I am a bad employee, and I think she hates me!

My time management skills are fine, and I can handle my work load!! I know everything will be ok… I just had a really bad day, and I need to vent. I don’t need you to fix it…

How was your day today?

Huh?????? Um… Ok…???

What has caused this person to become upset, and how can it be reasonably fixed?

Aww, I’m so sorry you’re upset. I’m here if you need an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, or anything else…

Expectations

Expectations

  • 2/3–3/4 of any group will agree with their reported type and the general description of their type.

  • When people disagree, it’s usually on one preference—and often one on which they had a “slight” result.

  • When people report having changed type,it is likely that they have had an incorrect administration—the “mind-setting” was not done properly, resulting in the reporting of “work type”or “ideal self.”

"The great events of world history are, at bottom, profoundly unimportant. In the last analysis, the essential thing is the life of the individual. This alone makes history, here alone do the great transformations first take place, and the whole future, the whole history of the world, ultimately spring as a gigantic summation from these hidden sources in individuals. In our most private and most subjective lives we are not only the passive witnesses of our age, and its sufferers, but also its makers. We make our own epoch." ~ C.G. Jung
