Who are you really? Part 3

If you missed the previous emails you can find them here: Part 1 & here: Part 2.

There are many different models of personality with debates on which one is the best one.

 

I found that understanding and combining some of them was the most helpful.

 

Personality can be also affected by so many different factors as well; age, upbringing, development, culture, society, education, etc.

 

In this article, I’m going to go through a few of the models that I found really helpful.

 

  1. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
  2. Enneagram
  3. Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

 

MBTI

  • Founded from Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types
  • Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers were the originators of the MBTI instrument
  • They researched personalities and combined with Jung’s theory came up with the MBTI
  • Describes normal healthy personalities
  • Explains that people tend to use their brain in different ways
  • There is no better or worse type
  • Inherent type and therefore will not change over time
  • Uses 4 letters to represent your personality type; I/E, N/S, F/T & P/J
  • Introversion/Extroversion: How you interact with the world
  • INtuitive/Sensing: How you gather information
  • Feeling/Thinking: How you make decisions
  • Perceiving/Judging: How you organize your life

 

Enneagram

 

  • The origin is not as clear
  • 9 Point system
  • Each person has a dominant type (number point) that they are born with
  • Tells you about your healthy, average and unhealthy traits that make up your personality type
  • No type is better or worse

 

The Highly Sensitive Person

 

  • Discovered by Dr. Elaine Aron
  • Innate Trait
  • Also referred to as Sensory-Processing Sensitivity (Scientific Term)
  • Your brain processes more information and reflects on it more deeply
  • Since you notice more things you get overwhelmed easily
  • About 20% of the population is highly sensitive
  • Of that 20% about 70% are introverted

Do you have any experience with any of these?
