Sunil explained how the judging (J) and perceiving (P) people view tasks. The Js prefer an organised lifestyle, make short-and long-term plans and then follow through. They life to have things decided. The Ps on the other hand prefer a more flexible lifestyle and adjust flexibly to new information and changes, and prefer to explore options instead to being too rigid.
Each of the Brothers was presented with a detailed description of their personality type and in groups explored how others saw them. Then they were able to see how people from the outside can indeed intuit some of the elements of their type, but not all.
Finally, Sunil warned of the danger of misusing the MBTI especially by labelling people and guessing others’ type from impression.
The workshop concluded on Wednesday and all the Brothers found it a most useful and stimulating workshop.
