I am new to this board.
Around 2000 I read, with my ex-girlfriend, a book that changed my life. It was Goddesses in Everywoman
. After that we of course also read the male version (Gods in everyman
It was so incredible giving to get words for what I kind of knew for a long time. I'm different than most people, but it's not because there is anything wrong with me.
Later I was lucky to stumple upon the DiSCover profile which my exgirlfriend had to do at a course or something.
By the way, she is ISFJ (or in Keirseyan: Protector) and I am ENTP (inventor), so as you can imagine, there was a lot to talk about
A few years later I was introducted to MBTI. The change was less, because I already knew about personalititypes, but I, as an inventor, obviously immidiately saw that MBTI had much more potential than the Gods/Goddesses. I was of course all into it, and have held two seminars about the basics about MBTI and personalitytypes in general.
During my preparation I of course read all of the internet
(really I didn't, it just looked like it) and eventually also the "Please Understand ME II".
Well, years went by. I keep telling my friends all now and then about personalitytypes, but it kind of got less intense for me and people around me.
The last August I got a new job, as a teacher. And I had to find out what was usefull to communicate, teach and raise these youngsters. And resently I convinced myself that the personality of the young people plays a huge role and that I would try to use my understanding of this to reach the students better. And hopefully also be able to give this to my colleges. And in that process I had to re-read the whole internet. And I found you. Aren't you happy
As you might have guessed already I am not teaching English. Sorry for all the errors that I made, but please bear with me, I'm not stupid, just not native English speaker.
Edit: Why doesn't my type show up in the right corner?
I don't need a signature to promote myself.
