For awhile now I have been listening to Personality Hacker. Recently podcast #68 talked about developed and underdeveloped decision making using the Myers Brigg’s system. Myers-Briggs has 4 decision making types – Extroverted Feeling, Introverted Thinking, Introverted Feeling and Extroverted Thinking. For decision making the podcast dealt with “should” statements. How SHOULD the world work.
The podcast was 48 minutes and worth listening to, I am just going to touch on a few things I thought we should be questioning. The presenters say growth often feels difficult and uncomfortable (isn’t that the truth!) and we have to become comfortable and aware of how we feel (all feelings/emotions) and work through them for growth to occur.
So are we attached to how people see us and avoid conflict? Consequently, we are actually not doing the kind thing of dealing/resolving the conflict in order to experience true harmony.
Are we are attached to being right and not doing the hard work of allowing our answers to be questioned and maybe finding out the truth.
Are we attached to an emotion, like righteous indignation, which we feel justifies not listening to other views and not doing the hard work of questioning ourselves.
Or attached to getting our goals met regardless of what is happening around us (people, environment). We should start looking at how our goals are impacting the larger environment.
The Podcast ends with asking us to question how our decision making is showing up for us and to start exercising being at a better level. Check Personality Hacker out the Podcast are weekly.
