SCENARIO 1

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

Your significant other just ended your 2 year relationship quite suddenly and with no apparent explanation. Up until this point you had both been talking about marriage and last week you even went to look at rings together. Now he/she won't even return your phone calls or texts. After talking with his/her family you find out that he/she has just been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer.

- Describe how this scenario would make you feel as well as what sort of influences and motivations lie behind those feelings. Why do you feel the way you do?
A mixture of emotions. I'd be highly concerned about my former love's health and the treatment they are getting. I'd be wondering how exactly their diagnosis played in the breakup. Did they break up with me because it made them realize they didn't want to be with me till death do us part? I mean come on if we're looking at rings just 7 days before.
It clearly was a serious relationship. Did they not think I could handle their illness?

I would offer his/her family help and honor my ex's wishes. I feel the ex should talk to me but if they don't want to then they don't want to. You can't force them. You can feel they handled it badly and just start picking up the pieces of your life.

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?
Honestly pissed off but I know I can't verbally express to a lot of people so I'd probably vent to my best friend. It's a messed up situation that was handled badly by the ex. But you can't really say anything cause they have cancer. I'd be overlooking our relationship and dissecting it.



SCENARIO 2

FOCUS ON YOUR FEELING PROCESS HERE

You are in college and this semester both you and your roommate end up in the same class together. You and your roommate get along fairly well and the living situation works but you aren't particularly close. You both typically do your own thing and are rather indifferent to each other. As the semester progresses you excel and become one of the top students in the class whereas your roommate is struggling significantly to grasp the material. The professor assigns a fairly challenging take home test that is a significant portion of your grade. He/she makes it clear that while it is open book, students are to work alone. Later your roommate comes to you begging for help after struggling with the test most of the weekend. You have already completed the assignment and he/she isn't asking to copy your answers, just to help tutor and mentor them as they struggle to complete the test, so there is no way your professor would ever know. However, this is the first time your room-mate has asked you for help this semester. He/she makes it clear that how they do on this test could mean the difference between passing and failing this class.

- How do you respond to your roommate’s request and why?

I wouldn't want them to fail but at the same time, we are meant to figure out on our own. I'd try to find a loophole to help. I'm good at finding loopholes but if there isn't any then he/she is on her own. It's not because I'm a teacher's pet or anything remotely like that, it's because I believe there is an underlining reason why we must do this ourselves.

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why? The need to figure out on your own. It's college and the real world is so close and there will not always be someone to hold your hand. It sucks.

- Describe the flow of your decision making process. I want to help. I want to support this person. I want to figure out a way to do that that will help her/him in the long run. It may not be the help they want though.


SCENARIO 3

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your boss calls you into his/her office in order to assign you to a new project. He/she gives you a choice between two.

Project 1 is a rather broad, expansive project covering multiple areas of company operations. It has the potential to have a very significant impact on company operations but it would require a collective effort and an extensive amount of group work where you would be logically thinking through the project together with the group of individuals your boss has also assigned to it.

Project 2 has a much more specific and narrow focus and would require a significant amount of in depth individual analysis to work through the problem. You would be working alone and the completion of the project may or may not have much impact on company operations. However, after complete the process and problem you were working on will be streamlined and fundamentally understood.

- Which project appeals to you the most, as it relates to the way you prefer to logically process information? Why?
I'd like to suggest to my boss a merger of both. I think Project 2 is best overall but there are some parts of Project 1 than could be useful as well. I'd like like to pick 2 people to form a team with an updated version of P2. If not while I want to go with P2 I'd probably go with P1. It's about what's best for the company not the one I'd personally enjoy.

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why? I would so much love to do the in-depth individual analysis. So much! :blushed: However the group effort is probably better no matter how much I'd hate to do it. If it fails I'm not the only one to get in trouble while P2 would. Too much pressure.

SCENARIO 4

FOCUS ON YOUR LOGIC AND THINKING PROCESS HERE

Your college professor has assigned you to a group project with 3 other individuals. All 3 of these individuals have a good strong work ethic and desire to contribute to the overall success of this project. You are at the first meeting of your group and the other members are tossing around valuable ideas as to the nature and direction of this project.

- Describe your behavior in this situation as you process and think about the ideas they are presenting.

Supportive, realistic, and be inspired by all the ideas.

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior.It's just what I do. It comes naturally to me.

SCENARIO 5

FOCUS ON THE SOURCES YOU DRAW NON-PHYSICAL ENERGY FROM HERE

It has been a very long week and you feel mentally and emotionally drained, but good news! It is Saturday and you have nothing significant that needs to be done. You FINALLY have some free time to yourself to recharge your batteries and do whatever you want.

- Describe what sort of activities would help you to recharge. What would you enjoy doing after a long week and why?
Take a long nap then do things I know that invigorates my mind and energy. This can stem from artwork to going to a bookstore. I did that today. I'm sick and miserable but going to the local bookstore got me out of my mental funk. My body might be weary but my mind no longer is. I love perking up my little' gray cells'. :wink:

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing? see above

SCENARIO 6

FOCUS ON THINKING VS FEELING HERE

You have a meeting with your college career counselor to discuss potential careers that interest you. He/she offers you a list of the following careers and asks you to pick your TOP 3. He/she asks you to take money out of the equation. Imagine all of these careers received equal compensation. Focus instead on where you would truly feel most happy and fulfilled.

Artist, Scientist, Actor, Engineer, Musician, Lawyer, Counselor, Entrepreneur, Teacher, Manager, Psychologist, Computer Programmer / Analyst, Clergy, Child Care, Medical Doctor


- What were your top 3 choices and what aspects of these careers appeal to you?
Child Care- I know I excel at it. I love bonding with kids and it brings me joy.
Counselor- Again, I'm known to be good at it and I like knowing I've helped people for the better.
Musician- I can sing. I'd need to learn sheet music.

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?
Only with the last one. I was torn between artist and musician. I didn't pick artist because at the end of the day it brings me personal joy. Yes, I love people validating my artistic talents but it's my release, not something I need a release from.

- Prioritize the aspects of your career choices that influenced your decision, what things mattered most to you, where do you imagine finding the most fulfillment and why?
Counselor. I have chronic headaches and I'm pretty sure a bunch of unruly kids would make them worse. I like being there when someone needs someone. I'm told by a lot of people I'm good at it. I just flat out think one should help people if they have the tools to do so. It's damn good karma and the right thing to do.


SCENARIO 7

Click on the image below and pay close attention to the things that jump out to you, objects, thoughts, feelings, impressions, ideas etc. What do you see?

Short Effective Scenario Questionnaire 2.0 (Self-Type)-
paintedcanyon1fb.jpg

- Describe the main things that stand out to you in this picture.
The Canyons.

- Why do you think/feel you focused on those things?
They are overbearing. Protecting or hiding the water.

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?
I like how the light reflects on the canyons and how hidden the water is. A lovely oasis.

I'd love the analysis of @Birbsofafeather , @Bergapten , and anyone who wants to take a shot at it. Please & thank you.

I am having more difficulty than usual with typing you, hence the slow reply. You are certainly a multi-faceted. I think that you are on the Ne-Si axis and I have a hunch for your type. Tentatively, I will offer up INFP. You seem to have an internal timeline of your emotions and the impact that abstract timespans or concrete events had on you, the cornerstone of Fi-Si, but I could be pushing this onto you. Much of the above seemed Ne-Te to me. But like I stated, I am struggling with your typing.

Thank you! :)

I will pull in the other MBTI junkie of the family and get back to you. We have somewhat differing views on functions, so if we have a consensus, there's a good deal of strength to it.
