Understanding Personality Types
7 Key Details of the Myers-Briggs System
The Myers-Briggs Beginner course is the place to start your personal development journey. Learn about the intentions of the Myers-Briggs system as it relates to Carl Jung and his cognitive functions, so you can get the most out of it. It goes beyond the personality you may think you inhabit to uncover the truth of who you are to better navigate society, career, relationships and begin to master your sense of self.
If you're here, you likely know what Myers-Briggs is all about. It's a way to learn more about your instinctual behaviors to best understand yourself, your greatest potential and how you see the world. It's more than just learning about who you are, however, it can be a tool for learning about other people in your life and better connect with other human beings.
MBTI has helped me create a greater sense of empathy for people. I personally have a mood disorder, am an INTP and have generally been disinterested in people. However, learning more about MBTI has given me the opportunity to fill in the blanks that were missing. I now better understand people's motivations, emotional responses, and how to connect with people. It's also given perspective on my greatest opportunities for growth. I've gone from feeling completed isolated, robotic and alone to connecting with people regularly to engage in a more fulfilling life.
Something happens when you start to understand what is going on behind the scenes of our brain functions. We start to see that there are many things within ourselves that we can't help and therefore will forgive ourselves for...the same goes for others in our lives. I, myself, have become for loving, forgiving, grateful and accepting of other people in my life now that I have a better understanding of how they function.
Understanding the brain wiring of yourself and others creates this sense that you've figured out the cheat code of life. You see the code within it all and are able to better navigate the stormy seas of human behavior as if you've started the game at the last boss. There's no doubt that it took time and effort to get here but this knowledge is truly a way to add multiple lives to your years.
I've always had a natural ability and drive to create and sell. When I was in 4th grade I would put "Kidz Enterprizes" on the back of my book reports. In 7th grade, I would print out Pokemon screenshots of the PokeRap and sell them to my friends. As a teenager, I would sell bottled water at local events and do anything I could to make my own way. My parents owned their own advertising agency, which is where I officially got my start professionally.
I've since work in TV, Film Marketing, local businesses, and now working one-on-one with freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to fully embrace who they are in their business lives. As a creative consultant, I share my own triumphs and difficulties with tips and tricks to navigate tools, mindset and expanding creativity in a way that suits your personality.
This is where I stand today, sharing the stories of everything I've learned and harnessing them into courses, podcasts and videos to help others realize that if they allow themselves to be themselves, they can level-up their reality in no-time.
Being a nerd comes with it's own challenges growing up. I'm also an intense introvert with a propensity to favor thinking over emotions. It's been quite a challenge to connect with people based solely on my personality. I've had to develop who I am not simply just be the default version of myself that has had past difficulty connecting with others. I also have cyclothymia, a low-grade bipolar disorder, and ADHD, which present challenges in working for strict businesses and subvert common expectations. I've had to learn to set my own boundaries.
I know there are others out there with similar adversities that don't allow them to fit into the common mold so easily. For some of us, the dream to build a life of our own is a matter of it being the only possibility.
Not only that but there are plenty of people who simply want more out of life. We want to not struggle every day to pay the bills, student loans and fear that we can't pay for the next hospital visit. We want to create life on our terms and do it without sacrificing who we are.
Frankly, I teach that leaning into who we are is the quickest way to focus on what we have to offer, how we can present that, who we can connect to and how can we best serve those people.
We're all capable of love, we're all worthy of success, but it's not a guarantee. We have to take the steps towards making that happen, to put in the work. So, let's take a look, break it all down and build you back up again.
