Why I love labels; how they can help us; and why we need transform them 

My dear extrovert sensitive grandchild, Mae. ♥

I have always loved labels, yet never really knew why.   You can read more about this here:

Meanwhile, here’s how you can join me in learning more about one of your “labels.”

“Good type development can be achieved at any age by anyone who cares to understand 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

(Go here for the World Time Clock:

Albert EinsteinIn Part One and Two of this Myers Briggs-HSP Teleclass you will learn:
Part One:    

  After learning about the 8 preferences and what they measure, AND, most importantly, how they overlap the HSP trait, you will self identify your MBTI type. We will use the statistically valid and reliable 93 question inventory for final clarification.
Part Two:
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 Extravert HSPs 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

To Register:
 Go to this payment link: Click on the Teleclass link, and enter the amount due.  You will then be sent information  on how to take the on-line statistically valid and reliable Myers Briggs Assessment, and information on how to join the class via my Zoom account .  You will have the option of showing up via video, or joining via sound only.
Cost: $170 which includes the extensive handout package and the 3 – 3.5 hour group consultation time.  If you are a past participant of a HSP Gathering Retreat, take 10% off = $153  … 🙂  And just so you know, $23 of this amount goes to Consulting Psychological Press… You are basically receiving 3 hours of important self-identity information ~ which is not therapy, but has been very therapeutic for many  for much less than any coaching or therapy sessions you might be paying for.

How the HSP-Myers Briggs Teleclass works:
You will need to register make payment no later than January 18, 2018  at 5:00 pm Mountain time.  Once payment is received you will be directed to my on-line account with Consulting Psychological Press where you will then take the statistically valid and reliable 93 question Myers Briggs Type Assessment.  This must be completed no later than  January 18, 2018 at 5:00 pm Mountain time. 

One of the main goals of the HSP_Myers Briggs class is for you to leave with a solid understanding of your type.  However, in certain instances, a personal consultation may be needed in order to clarify confusion surrounding your authentic type.  In this case, additional charges would apply.

As part of the this HSP-Myers Briggs Teleclass you will receive a handout package which will include: Type & Organizations;  At Your Best Characteristics; Emotional Intelligence;  Type & Careers;  Stress & the Inferior Function & How to return to Equilibrium;  Following Your Spiritual Path; and Communication with Other Types

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.
~~LD, December 2013

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

    Hi Jacquelyn,
    If I’m not able to attend the Nov 4th *live* session, would it be available to view a recorded version later that day?
    I’m very interested in this class, and would be committed to completing it. Thanks

    • Jacquelyn says:

      Hi Terrie , Thanks for your interest in the upcoming Myers Briggs/ HSP Overlay class. Unfortunately, it is necessary to attend both
      sessions in order to fully understand Myers Briggs Type & Assessment, especially as it pertains to your specific temperament. Listening to a recording
      does not allow for the accuracy necessary. “In person” interpretations are required as part of my professional certification to use the statistically valid and reliable Myers
      Briggs instrument. I will be offering the class again, most likely in the early part of 2018. Perhaps you can join us then? I hope so.

  2. Judy Bashor says:

    What are the times that the course will be on? There is a chance that I can make this work for me on those 2 Saturdays. If it doesn’t, I will see about getting in the next time it’s offered! Thank you!

    • Jacquelyn says:

      Hi Judy, Here are the times for the Myers Briggs/ HSP Overlay — they were listed (incorrectly !?) on the post 🙂 ~~ How I make these simple, yet major errors– I do not know…. as I try hard to avoid mistakes. Fortunately, I have a great deal of self-compassion for myself … 🙂 Hope you can join us. I’m glad you wrote, otherwise I might not have caught the incorrect dates.
      When: Two consecutive Saturdays
      Part One: November 4, 2017
      Part Two: November 11, 2017
      10:00 am – 11:30 (ish) am Mountain Time – US
