    Thinkers in Relationships: An Inside Look

    Thinkers in Relationships: An Inside Look

    This podcast explores the challenges, both practical and psychological, thinking types (e.g., INTP) face in relationships. These challenges largely stem from the inferior nature of thinkers’ feeling (F) function, which can make their feelings more difficult to access, understand, and express. There are exceptions, however, such as periods of infatuation in which feelings are fueled by idealism. While experiencing strong emotions provide the promise of a more rich and rewarding life for thinking types, such experiences can be difficult to sustain once their thinking (T) process regains it typical control. Thinkers are thus faced with the challenge of finding a more sustainable way of integrating feeling into their daily lives and relationships. They must also come to grips with how they will think about and engage with their partners once feelings of infatuation have waned. What will motivate them to persist and grow with their partners?

A must for anyone interested in personal & professional development

Hi A.J & Elaine

Thank you for your podcasts so far. I am very pleased and excited you are both having in depth discussions in regards to the personality types.

I think understanding personality types can be an extremely valuable asset to anyone interested in personal and professional development.

Can I please kindly invite you to discuss & review Florence Littauer’s Personality Plus? It would be great if you could compare, contrast & highlight any differences from Jungs work & the MBTI Type Indicator.

Thank you

Kind Regards
