In the last email (email 21) I offered an example of an instrument that allows us to begin looking at innate preferences in terms of:
-our communication styles
-how we make decisions
-how we manage change
-how we manage conflict
I suggested that it would be worth your while to complete a free MBTI
step 1 online. I hope that you took the time to do that, or plan to very
soon. While step 1 is limited in terms of interpretation, it does offer
an exciting opportunity to ask the questions:
- do these results reflect how I view my true self?
- do these results reflect the messaging I have received?
As we move forward it is important to remember that there is a dynamic
interplay between our natural tendencies and what we have accepted to be
“true” about ourselves via the external influence of social
Again, we need to remember that “what is” is not set in stone. When we
decide to become the CEO of our lives we allow ourselves to begin
imagining the possibility of having new thoughts, feelings and behaviors
that are congruent with a freely chosen self-image.
Taking the time to review email 8 will help you to begin to address the questions posed above.
Please remember that this is a sequential series. Taking the time to revisit past emails in in your best interest.
