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?

- In this scenario what would you honestly say the primary focus of your feelings would be?

I've never been in a relationship yet, so answering this would be kind of weird. I'd be so sad. I would most likely burst into tears the moment I heard that my partner is dying. I will meet her in the hospital and talk to her for a long time. I would do what normal lovebirds do and spend as much time with her as I can before she dies. Why would I feel that way? Loss. They way a person feels when he/she loses somebody really important to them. My primary focus of my feelings would be to try and calm down knowing that she's going to die and move on, but that would never happen.

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?

- What sort of things in this scenario stand out to you as far as having a strong influence on your decision making and why?- Describe the flow of your decision making process.
I'll try. If I help him now, he might ask for help again. In a normal situation I would have helped.I would focus on whether he actually understands the topic because just getting the answers from him would render him useless as a person. Getting a degree without actually earning it and working hard for it may get him a job but he'll be kicked out easily as he didn't understand anything. I will try to make sure he understands, if he doesn't I'm sorry, I really am, but I'm trying to help him in the long term. If he doesn't understand now, he can fail and then understand it over again.

Flow of decision making process: Just help him and see if he understands, if he doesn't then I can't help him anymore.




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?

- What sort of things in this scenario, across either project, stood out to you as having a strong influence on your decision? Why?
I think Project 2. I'd prefer to work alone and since it requires my logic, I don't have to worry about incompetent team members. Why? I'd do it because in the case it works and is used, I'd be famous as the creator of 'System X' and would earn some respect in the company.

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.

- Describe what major influences drive this behavior.
Oooh, Hardworking people I like. I's hard to answer since I'm still in high school. I would take all their ideas and write them down. Think about the pros and cons of each and choose the one with more pros than cons.I would then ask everyone what they would like to do and assign them that job. If more than one person wants one part then I would just randomly assign them a post according to what I think they'll do well.
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?

- What sort of things do you feel you draw non-physical energy from doing?
Music,Speedcubing,just sleeping and watching a bit of TV and reading books.

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?
Computer Programmer,Musician,Entrepreneur

- Was it difficult or easy to pick only 3 and why?
Yes and no. Since every job offers an equal pay, it's tempting to be famous by picking Musician and Actor, but I know I'm not good at that.

- 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?
Competence. I'm no Bill Gates, but I do consider myself a pretty good programmer(at least before my interest wandered). I would prepare logical solutions to problems faster and write programs better than 2nd and 3rd Year Engineering students when I was in 8th Grade.


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.
A canyon,most likely the Grand Canyon, a bunch of trees and water.[It looks a bit like a dinosaur shaped train./B]

- Why do you think/feel you focused on those things?
They are big and come out the most. There is still a hidden meaning to this picture, one which I think I know.

- Describe the strength with which this photo did or did not appeal to you and why?
No. This picture doesn't paint a painful emotion. It doesn't make me happy nor does it make me sad. The only thing it makes me want to be is optimistic, which I am not.

Not able to get a good read on whether your feelings/judgments have a subjective or objective focus from this.


SCENARIO 2

I'll try. If I help him now, he might ask for help again. In a normal situation I would have helped. I would focus on whether he actually understands the topic because just getting the answers from him would render him useless as a person. Getting a degree without actually earning it and working hard for it may get him a job but he'll be kicked out easily as he didn't understand anything. I will try to make sure he understands, if he doesn't I'm sorry, I really am, but I'm trying to help him in the long term. If he doesn't understand now, he can fail and then understand it over again.

Flow of decision making process: Just help him and see if he understands, if he doesn't then I can't help him anymore.
Here however this first bold statement is a very subjective one however I think it might be more logic based rather than feeling based. The rest of the bold statements indicate an undercurrent of Fe which reinforces a possible Ti focus with the first bold statement.

SCENARIO 3

I think Project 2. I'd prefer to work alone and since it requires my logic, I don't have to worry about incompetent team members. Why? I'd do it because in the case it works and is used, I'd be famous as the creator of 'System X' and would earn some respect in the company.
Definitely getting Ti again from the first and second bold statements. The last one could hint at an Ne influence maybe?

SCENARIO 4

Oooh, Hardworking people I like. I's hard to answer since I'm still in high school. I would take all their ideas and write them down. Think about the pros and cons of each and choose the one with more pros than cons.I would then ask everyone what they would like to do and assign them that job. If more than one person wants one part then I would just randomly assign them a post according to what I think they'll do well.
Hrm... the way you step up to try and organize everyone speaks to Te working... however this might be TiNe working together to look like Te... not sure.


SCENARIO 5

Music,Speedcubing,just sleeping and watching a bit of TV and reading books.
Socially introverted things... having a primary intorverted function is likely. Also the future/abstract type of thinking surrounding speedcubing / puzzle solving might indicate N over S a bit.

SCENARIO 6

Computer Programmer,Musician,Entrepreneur

Yes and no. Since every job offers an equal pay, it's tempting to be famous by picking Musician and Actor, but I know I'm not good at that.

Competence. I'm no Bill Gates, but I do consider myself a pretty good programmer(at least before my interest wandered). I would prepare logical solutions to problems faster and write programs better than 2nd and 3rd Year Engineering students when I was in 8th Grade.
Getting a clear T focus over F.

SCENARIO 7

A canyon,most likely the Grand Canyon, a bunch of trees and water.[ It looks a bit like a dinosaur shaped train.
They are big and come out the most. There is still a hidden meaning to this picture, one which I think I know.

No. This picture doesn't paint a painful emotion. It doesn't make me happy nor does it make me sad. The only thing it makes me want to be is optimistic, which I am not.
Objective Statements
Subjective Statements

For the most part it looks like your sensory observations are fairly objective (Se) and the subjective statements could be coming from (Ni). The lack of appeal however could play a factor here however so this may not be an accurate account of your N/S axis.

Primary Ti with Ni/Se would mean ISTP (Ti Se Ni Fe)... have you considered this type? Would you consider yourself more of an N type or S type? Looking at the N functions does Ne or Ni resonate with you more?
