Personality

I am a devotee of the work of Carl Jung and have extensive experience in using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (c) for team-building and personal development.

I am conversant in using the Step II – expanded analysis – for those who wish a deeper understanding of their psychological type.

This questionnaire has become so popular, likely half or more of the people I meet have “done” the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (or a version thereof: True Colours; Temperament; etc.) Many if not most personality type questionnaires and models are based on Carl Jung’s model of Psychological Type.

I agree with Isabel Briggs Myers who said, “Whatever the circumstances of your life, the understanding of type can make your perceptions clearer, your judgments sounder, and your life closer to your heart’s desire.”

I am a registered practitioner and offer one-on-one, couples or group sessions that can help you use your knowledge of your psychological type to bring “your life closer to your heart’s desire.”

 

“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

“Standing alone today demands even more courage and strength than it did in former cultures.”

Marion Woodman

from a workshop participant

Many thanks for this splendidly organized and fun workshop on personality typologies.  I am remapping the depths as a result.

from a couple who did individual consultations

We are really impressed by the feedback you gave us  – we have been actively discussing our Type Indicators and Interpretative Reports – and will continue doing so for some time.  Thank you so much Mary. This is a real gift and very much appreciated – it comes at a really good time for both of us!

Background

I started using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in the mid 1980’s. I was privileged to participate in  training with Allen Hammer and Naomi Quenk, two of the foremost leaders in the type community.

Since then, I have facilitated hundreds of sessions, primarily for team building in the workplace.

I’m particularly interested in using the Step II (Expanded Analysis Report) with individuals and groups who have done the basics and want to mine some of the depths available from further exploration.

I’m also interested in other aspects of Jungian psychology, including dreamwork and creativity. I’m a member of the C.G. Jung Society of Vancouver and regularly attend lectures and workshops.

I never tire of seeing the insights into self and others that learning about personality type often sparks. I am told my gift is in setting a learning climate that encourages people to accept – and even find humour in– their less preferred functions while  claiming  and celebrating the strengths that often come from our type preferences.

MBTI (c) Step II

The Step II (previously called the Expanded Analysis Report) provides an additional five facets for each of the four polarities.

If you’d like to see an example of what the 18-page Interpretive report looks like, go here: Step II Interpretive Profile Example.

We can have an initial consultation with no obligation. Send me a note and we’ll set something up.
