My 3-1/2 granddaughter, who I am almost certain is a sensitive extrovert, like her grandmother.
Jacquelyn has been certified to utilize the statistically valid and reliable Myers Briggs Assessment since 1993 and has administered the MBTI to hundreds, most of them HSPs.
I have always loved labels, yet never really knew why. You can read more about this here:
Why I love labels; how they can help us; and why we need transform them.
“Good type development can be achieved at any age by anyone who cares to under-stand his or her own gifts and the appropriate use of those gifts.
“~Isabel Briggs Myers
“When people differ, a knowledge of type lessens friction and eases strain. In addition it reveals the value of differences. No one has to be good at everything.”
~Isabel Briggs Myers
Here’s information on what to expect, and how you can join me in learning more about your Myers Briggs “label.”
In Part One of this Myers Briggs-HSP class you will learn:
What the 8 preferences mean, what they measure, AND, most importantly, how they overlap with our HSP trait. You will have the opportunity to self identify your MBTI type, and we will then use the results of your statistically valid and reliable 93 question Myers Briggs assessment for final clarification.
The 16 Myers Briggs Types
You will learn about the Dominate, Auxiliary, Tertiary and Least Preferred functions of your type as identified in Part One. This is perhaps one of the most overlooked, yet crucial aspects to learning about type and how to apply it in your life.
You will also learn why:
• Many HSPs may have felt they were swimming upstream from the dominate culture;
• HSPs may feel especially challenged to accomplish the goals most important to them;
• The major confusion about the HSP Extravert – and why there may be more sensitive extroverts than we previously thought;
*The difference between those who self-identify as HSP (introvert or extrovert); and those introvert/extroverts who do NOT identify as HSPs; and the difference between Ambervision and the Myers Briggs temperaments
• There is no such thing as being “right in between” two preferences such as the J and P or E and I; and why this often indicates some sort of turmoil or transition between two preferences;
• Understanding your least preferred function (the inferior function) is crucial to what Carl Jung called “full type individuation;
• The first 12 years of life may have erroneously influenced your Myers Briggs type; • We need all 16 types and why HSPs need non-HSPs and vice versa;
• Your family of origin or school experience may have erroneously influenced your authentic self; and
• HSPs are often striving toward what Carl Jung has called “full type individuation” and your authentic self

One of the main goals of the Myers Briggs with HSP Overlay class is for you to leave with a solid understanding of your type.

Introversion, Extroversion and the Highly Sensitive Person
Although we will be discusing the often confusing differences between the introvert, extrovert, ambivert and the highly sensitive person, you can read more about about the sensitive extrovert here in my guest blog on Dr. Elaine Aron’s website:
Space is very limited, so register early if you are interested.
What Others Have Said:
” It’s exciting to find out new things about myself and the Myers Briggs has been very enlightening, especially realizing that I am actually an extrovert and not the introvert I always thought I was. This has helped me understand myself and some of my E desires that otherwise have always felt contradictory. In the HSP context, my E makes total sense. I finally know I’m not a “contemplative” extravert, or an “outgoing” introvert. I’m an highly sensitive extrovert and that has made a huge difference! It helps me discover what balance looks like in my life within the E and HSP context: a balance I have been searching for ~ for many years. I am looking forward to learning how to honor my E and HSP and balance both successfully. ” June 2017 ~ Monika, Oregon, 2017
My biggest HSP learning concerned how different extraversion looks in HSP’s than in non-HSP’s. Though I am not an E or an HSS myself, I work with and am related to sensitive extroverts, so it was very helpful to understand this better. It will help me serve my clients better and understand some of my friends and relatives better.” ~Emily Agnew, Rochester, New York –
Focusing Instructor for HSPs
“…I learn by “triangulating” between abstract generalizations (eg the pithy type descriptions provided by the MBTI workbook) and vivid, specific, messy, real-life examples that are full of complex subtleties and fascinating exceptions. So your combination of straight-up type information and individual sharing in class was very helpful….” Janet, United Kingdom
Your class helped me to continue to unravel the mystery of who am I even at the age of 64. It answered some of my lifelong questions that began with the words “Why do I…” The HSP overlay onto the Myers-Briggs type was enlightening, yet somewhat complex. I would like to learn more about that. It was a relief to learn why I’ve felt “out of character” for the last several years. My type is now completely opposite from what I tested twenty years ago, except for the Extrovert/Introvert aspect. This is key information to help me figure out what I’m going to do with the last third of my life. Thank you! P Edgerly, Dripping Springs, TX
I think one of the most profound things I heard from you was right out of the gate on the first call when you described being an HSP Extravert and mentioned the low-grade lethargy that sets in if the necessary down-time drags on for too long — and that too much isolation is not healthy. I was also struck by what you said about needing novel stimulation but being left with a combination of being energized but exhausted. Those things — the mysterious low-grade lethargy that is not depression and the dance and difficult balance between stimulation seeking and solitude-seeking pretty much sums up many of the issues I wrestle with.
I am so, so grateful that you mentioned the low-grade lethargy! It made my jaw drop to hear you talk about it, and I haven’t stopped being thrilled that you put words to that odd condition. I’ve never heard anyone else talk about it and make the point that it is not the same as depression or social anxiety.

Even though I’ve read alot about personality types, I learned many new things in your class. I loved the examples you gave, and now I really understand myself even better. Also the small class environment over the phone was perfect, as it made it comfortable for an introvert like me to participate 🙂 Anonymous
