Development – not a question of gender, age or nails…
“Good type development can be achieved at any age by anyone who cares to understand his or her own gifts and the appropriate use of those gifts.”Isabel Briggs Myers
When you understand personality preferences, you can more readily appreciate differences between you and people closest to you, such as spouses, partners, children, and friends. In most areas of life, when differences between you and another person are bothersome, you can avoid the other person in some way. But when that person is a loved one or close friend, you have a lot to lose by walking away.
Knowledge of personality type allows you to see those differences as just those—different ways of “being.” Instead of labeling a person and putting value judgments on his or her behavior, you can learn to see it as behavior reflecting personality type, not something designed to offend you. Many couples learn to appreciate these differences and may even see them in a humorous light.
Your personality type doesn’t change over time, but each preference helps you in different ways, and to different degrees, as you move through your life. Type development is a lifelong process and understanding type can help you overcome challenges at various stages of life including youth, midlife, retirement, and aging.
Looking at development and personality from this perspective becomes a peaceful journey with ourselves and others.
