Are You an Introvert or an Extrovert? And what does that mean for your relationships? Saturday, June 5, 2010

It’s time for our — Introvert/Extrovert Seminar again!

I don’t usually repeat seminars during the year, but since it takes a while to get the hang of what all the “letters” mean, sometimes it helps to do this one more often.

What do I mean by “letters?”*

Well…

  • Are you an Introvert or an Extrovert? (I/E)
    If you’re an Introvert, you need more time alone to recharge your batteries. And you’d rather spend one-on-one time with a close friend. If you’re an Extrovert, you love big groups and have lots of friends. You lose energy if you have too much time alone.
  • Are you more Intuitive or Sensing? (N/S)
    If you’re Intuitive, you “trust your gut.” You’re good with ideas and words. And you’re idealistic. If you’re Sensing, you trust your senses — what you can taste, touch, smell, feel. That makes you observant, practical and realistic. (This one can be especially tricky, if you’re different from the person you’re in a relationship with).
  • Are you a Thinker or Feeler? (T/F)
    If you’re a Thinker, you’d rather make decisions based on your “head.” You focus on what’s logical and fair for everyone. If you’re a Feeler, you tend to make decisions based on your “heart.” You’re more compassionate and warm. (Slightly more men are thinkers. Slightly more women are feelers.)
  • Are you more Judging or Perceiving? (J/P)
    If you’re more Judging, you’re organized, you like to plan ahead, and you’re good with time. You feel better once you’ve made a decision so you can cross it off your list. If you’re more Perceiving, you’d rather be spontaneous and flexible. You like to keep your options open. You’re more “in the moment” which means sometimes you lose track of time.

You get the idea… we have really different ways of doing things. And of course, you’re not all one way or the other. But, when you get a sense of your overall style, it can tell you a lot about yourself and your relationships, like who you’re attracted to and who would be a good fit for you!

The more different your letters are, the more CHEMISTRY you’ll have.

The more alike your letters are, the more COMPATIBLE you’ll be.

That’s why you’re really attracted to people who drive you crazy! Or you when you find someone you get along with, it can feel boring.

So, how do you discover what your letters are? And how do you find the right balance of chemistry and compatibility?

I hope you’ll join us to find out!

I can’t wait to see you June 5th for – Are you an Introvert or an Extrovert? (This seminar is really fun. So, feel free to bring a friend or significant other!)
