What is personality?

What makes us who we are?

This talk looks at different psychological theories, especially the concepts of Jungian psychology. It introduces ideas about how our natural personality preferences influence our interests, values, careers, relationships and in fact our entire world view.

How can we get a core sense of who we really are and get the most from our lives?

This workshop looks at some of the theories proposed by Carl Jung and others about the natural growth in consciousness that we all naturally seek to experience throughout life.

How does your psychological type make your personal journey similar or different to that of other people?

Where are you on your journey right now and what challenges and joys might you expect to encounter in the future?

There will be some general background to psychological type (although not a full assessment) and attendees will get a special offer for further workshops with Human Improvement.

You can expect to learn some valuable insights into the human condition and how we are all born with a general template for development that helps to guide us through life.

Presentation: Myers Briggs Personality Types

Myers-Briggs personality Type theory helps us to understand many of the normal, natural differences in personality between individuals.

Inspired by the work of Carl Jung from the early 20th century the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) has since been developed to become the most widely used personality inventory in the world.

This session acts as a general introduction to understanding Type, addressing some of the misconceptions that people may have about this fascinating area.

It will also touch on the application of Type for each of us to realise and empower our unique developmental path through life.

With explanations of theory, backed up by personal examples, the goal of this session is to give you a broad framework of understanding how our Type preferences help shape individual personality and functional development on a deep level.
