Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Thinking
I have spent time in the past several posts highlighting the importance of different ways to take in information (Perceiving). Once that has happened, it’s time to evaluate that information. If this doesn’t happen, then usually nothing gets done, no vacation plans will be made. Evaluating information is about using Thinking and Feeling.
Extraverted Thinking (Te) helps us evaluate that information in a logical and objective way. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider Te questions like:
- What will the vacation cost, and how will I pay for it?
- Will I get the best “bang for my buck” on the vacation options I’m considering?
- What excursions will I organize to reasonably meet everyone’s needs equally?
- What contingency plans will I need to make to ensure everything goes off like I’ve planned?
“Dominant extraverted Thinking types are natural leaders—quick, assertive, and decisive. Their judgments are clear and logical; they seldom have second thoughts.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development.
The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Thinking (Te) during decision making are ESTJ and ENTJ. The types that might forget to use Te during decision making are INFP and ISFP.
