subconscious mind review

Please review email 62.


In the last email, we explored just one facet of innate personality preferences. In future emails, we will continue to explore other facets. However, today we will delve a little deeper into introversion and extroversion (innate preferences) and learned behavior (social programming), with two simplified case studies.

These examples demonstrate how:

  • the extravert who does not find sufficient and appropriate interaction will feel unsatisfied and then learn to respond to this discomfort in inappropriate ways.
  • the introvert who does not find sufficient and appropriate time to reflect will feel unsatisfied and then learns to respond to this discomfort in inappropriate ways.

Nancy shows a strong clarity preference for extroversion in the MBTI step 2.

Nancy is a 42-year-old professional woman, recently divorced, with shared custody of two teenagers. She has been unsatisfied with her work for many years and finds life in a cubicle to be isolating and confining. For the past fifteen years she had placed an enormous amount of time and energy on coping with her ex-husbands alcohol addiction. Over these years her social circle has diminished significantly, and she has begun to experience periods of depression and anxiety.

Jim shows a strong clarity preference for introversion in the MBTI step 2.

Jim is a 53-year-old, married, professional salesman with three teenagers. His role at work is client acquisition and this requires numerous meetings both inside and outside the office. At the end of the day Jim feels emotionally, mentally, and physically depleted. When he returns home, he becomes further depleted dealing with a wife who is depressed, and teenagers who are sourly. By 8pm Jim has usually consumed six rum and coke.

Obviously, introversion and extroversion tendencies are just one piece of the puzzle in both above examples.  However, as mentioned in the last email, this facet of the MBTI addresses how we use and gain energy.

Remember:

  • an extraverted individual naturally focuses on the outside world and receives energy from interacting with others.
  • an introverted individual naturally focuses on the internal world and receives energy from reflection.

Understand this:

Nancy was not born with anxiety or depression, and Jim was not born with the tendency to consume alcohol to relieve stress. These ways of being have become learned responses that overtime will become cemented ways of being (cow paths) if the subconscious mind is not redirected.
