Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Sensing

07 Jun 2016

Of course, using Sensing plays a huge role in any decision we make regardless of our preferences. In my previous post I covered extraverted Sensing. It’s now time to address introverted Sensing (Si).

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Sensing

03 Jun 2016

When I think about the best decisions I have made in my life, it usually comes down to taking a more balanced approach to whatever I’m deciding.

16 Types in the Workplace—ISTP

18 Feb 2016

The few people I know with preferences for ISTP often provide a hands-on approach to solving problems that our work projects need. Their favorite mental process, introverted Thinking (Ti), helps them quickly analyze the pros and cons so we can “cut to the chase.” This gift can sometimes help organizations implement practical solutions, as long as these individuals are encouraged to share their sometimes detailed and sequential approach. This favorite process is backed up by their second favorite...
