PIC: Sunil Britto explaining the concepts of Myers Briggs Type Indicator.
The morning prayer took the theme of love, basing it on Paul’s letter to the Corinthians where he says, ‘Love is patient, love is kind…’( I Cor. 13: 4-8). It went on to reflect on the heart quoting the famous lines of The Little Prince: ‘What is essential is invisible to the eye, for it is only with the heart that we see rightly.’
Then began the first of three days on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) facilitated by Sunil Britto. Sunil explained the history of the development of the MBTI and then went on to stress that unlike other tests, the MBTI is more of an indicator as to the type of personality we are. He stressed the fact that each of the 16 types are healthy and have their own particular gifts. Hence, each of the types brings certain blessings to any group and can enrich the group once people understand and accept differences.
The sessions dealt initially with the Extrovert/Introvert approaches to life and then explored the Sensate/Intuitive way of perceiving reality. The group found the day a stimulating exploration of how we interact with others, and how we see the world. Tomorrow should prove to be equally interesting.
