I would prefer smaller workshops with specific focuses and targets (i.e. mbti and leadership, mbti and finance etc), or even a 'retreat' where you get to mingle and do teamwork activities. When I did the keirsey test in class, we separated into types (nt, nf, sj, sp) and did activities exploring ourselves together. One activity was we had to draw a symbol that represented our types- one nf group drew ET. That was pretty cool I must admit. When people are drawn into a group with a focus on similarities, it results in very good dynamics.

I would rather do something that involves experiential learning. A casual gathering may be cool as well.

Even though I said yes to the poll, I don't really want to be talked at. I would go if only to observe the different types if that were the case.

I guess I would go as long as I didn't have to talk and could just observe

Please vote...If there was an event in which you get the chance to meet with typology enthusiast, would you attend? This is a simple yes or no poll. Don't factor in things that would prevent you from attending. :happy:
I guess I'm already the main attraction at this event, so I'm forced to go eh? :crazy:

Absolutely! The only thing that could possibly stop me would be the fact that I don't drive, and I live in a remote area where such things never happen.

Assuming I had the money, time, and ride, the interest is pre-provided. Yuppers.

I've gone to typology conferences before and had a great time. I learned alot and it was fun seeing the different types behave. The food was good too. That's a plus. The only drawback is the cost.

It depends... By enthusiast, do you mean someone who is only very excited about the topic but in reality knows very little about it, or do you mean an expert on typology? I'd rather attend a conference with an unenthusiastic expert than an enthusiastic amateur.

I'd definitely go if it covered the functions. I don't really want to hear about E vs. I or P vs. J for long periods of time just because it's so basic, but I might consider it if the person brought some sort of innovation to the table.

I'd love to go! It'd be fun just to meet other enthusiasts, but there are tons of other things we could do depending on the size of the event. I'd love to have access to panels/groups of correctly typed people, professionals who could correctly type us and answer questions, presentations on how to use our strengths and improve our weaknesses, and just casual conversation and organized activities with other enthusiasts, both of my type and of others, and maybe even some sort of event for singles.

So @Happy, when are you making this happen for us? :happy:

Yes i would go if i could find a way to get there,because i assume it would be held in the US and i'm way down in Aus.But i'd move heaven and earth so i could meet all of the friends i've made.And i agree with Unicornitopia that we should have type tags,but they should also have our name on them.
