PHQ | QUESTIONS FROM COMMUNITY: In this episode, Joel and Antonia answer a listener question about testing out as both an Intuitive and Sensor.
In this podcast you’ll find:
- Online assessments are invariably flawed, including our own.
- Online tests are not the end point for figuring out your type; they are the starting point.
- That includes the tests that give you percentage breakdowns on the dichotomies.
- What we are trying to do with tests is get to the parts of your brain that are languageless.
- We take a side door method which asks you about your behavior and tries to reverse engineer it back to the source.
- A lot of types can have similar behavior for entirely different reasons.
- Forced choice tests force you into one of four categories.
- You will answer those questions differently based on a lot of influences:
- What time of day is it?
- Are you hungry?
- Are you tired?
- Are you stressed?
- Those answers don’t necessarily depict you accurately.
- We base a lot of our answers on things we are familiar with (family dynamics) rather than intrinsic wiring.
- The gold standard assessment is the MBTI. It is over 150 questions. It requires an MBTI certified practitioner to deliver it. It has a 20% error rate.
- Why would an ESFP type out 50/50 Sensor/Intuitive after spending her life in an Intuitive household? The answer is obvious.
- You received a lot of reward/incentives to alter how you think and behave more like an intuitive.
- You will have developed a lot of mental wiring to be acceptable to your family.
- That doesn’t alter what your dominant cognitive function is. It is your flow state. You can’t change it. It is the thing you need to be doing to recoup energy.
- Just because you got a 50/50 on it doesn’t mean anything.
- If you are using Extraverted Sensing and you aren’t recouping energy, then you may not be ESFP.
- That is all that matters.
- Percentage ratings don’t mean anything. If you show up equally represented in a dichotomy, take that to indicate that you received a lot of reward in your family for manifesting a function that was not yours.
