There is another thing that I’d like to add from my observations on children and why they break rules. I am barely an adult myself though so I have nothing to back up my claims other than the fact that I’ve always been fascinated by people’s motivations since I was introduced to psychology at an early age. I notice that with perceivers, especially extraverted authenticity users (xNFP), another motivation that I see is the ‘adrenaline’ part. For ENFPs (being one myself) there is a sense of roleplaying that makes rule breaking romantic and exciting while with ESFPs there may be an unconscious ‘addiction’ to excitement in the now that they don’t think of the consequences. Sensing harmony users (xSFJ) on the other hand generally use rule breaking as a way of communicating something, either as a protest against the authority figure or a manipulation of social power as they tend to understand rules fairly well.
Of course this doesn’t apply to all children but it’s a trend that I notice. And if left undeveloped, these attitudes could go all the way to adulthood as an addiction of sorts. Also the society often give conflicting idea of what’s the accepted rule. They may have been taught something at home which aren’t acceptable at school. Sometimes they may pick up different ideas from each parent too. In this case, it can simply be a miscommunication.
Thanks so much for taking my question on a PHQ! I’m so glad you added the P/J difference to the conversation, because that really helps me to contextualize how different folks approach rules.
I do want to clarify a comment in my original question about gifted education, though. When I said that I was used to being around intuitives due to being involved in gifted education programs in school, I was mostly referring to the content of the particular gifted program in which I was placed, rather than making the assumption that the other children in the program were more likely to be intuitives themselves. The program to which I was referring placed a heavy emphasis on creativity and thinking outside the box, and it stretched us in ways that strike me as much more intuitive-friendly than the more structured instruction that went on in the everyday classroom apart from this program. That said, I’m so glad you made sure to discuss on the podcast that neither sensors nor intuitives are more inclined to get good grades or achieve academically.
Thanks for the question and the clarification, Tracey! I would be interested in knowing what class it was that had the intuitive curriculum. I’m an education junkie and I always like to know what programs there are out there. 🙂
Excellent! Love these. Interacting with people is so much more interesting once one understands these differences. Okay, sometimes it’s still frustrating interacting but it is more fascinating too 🙂
Thanks for the feedback, Randy! The Perceiver/Judger dichotomy is really fascinating once you really understand its nuances.
