At Right Trax Training, we use personality profiling to support our own, often opposing styles…which can be ‘fun’!
Personality profiling is something that we feel passionate about. For us, we deliver much in the way of MBTI and Insights Discovery training and workshops. Tools like these can benefit the workplace and relationships immensely, if used in the ‘right‘ way.
Here’s an overview of how we differ:
|Conscious preference||Introverted Thinking||Extroverted Feeling|
|Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®||ISTJ||ENFP|
|MBTI Personality Types®|
|Insights Discovery® conscious colour order|
Perhaps the biggest benefit however, is using the information to show us where each other is stronger (yes: and weaker), so that we can bounce off each other – which works great whether we’re deep in the detail of a proposal or facilitating events at fast pace!
All too often, we hear that opposites clash, and that we will lock horns with anyone very different to us. Of course, that may be true sometimes, but truly understanding our own preferences allows us to adapt and connect much more effectively with those around us, so that we easily complement and synergise with those who are opposite to us.
