Winter Session:

Myers Briggs with HSP Overlay

“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen

Why Self-Identity?  Why Labels?  How they can help. 

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.”

Myers Briggs – HSP Overlay – Winter 2017  Session
with Jacquelyn Strickland, LPC and HSP
Jacquelyn has been a certified user of the Myers Briggs Assessment 
since 1993 and has administered the MBTI to hundreds, most of them HSPs.

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

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;
• Why scoring “right in between” two preferences such as the J and P or E and I often indicates some sort of turmoil or transition between two preferences;
*Understand differences and similarities between the Introvert & Extravert HSP
• Understanding your least preferred function (the inferior function) is crucial to what Carl Jung called full type spiritual 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 Participate in a Teleclass. ”   Long distance charges apply, with suggestions for low cost international rates at
Cost: My costs from Consulting Psychological press have risen, so there has been a slight increase since my last class.  The cost is now  $175 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 = $157.50  … 🙂  And just so you know, $23 of this amount goes to Consulting Psychological Press…and 2.9% goes for PayPal fees.  You are basically receiving 3 hours of important self-identity information ~ which is not therapy, (yet 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 Thursday, March 2, 2017   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 Thursday, March 2, 2017. 

One of the main goals of the HSP_Myers Briggs Teleclass 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.

Here are a few comments from past participants:  

I really valued learning this from YOU, because you ARE an HSP, you understand the trait so well and you also know the MBTI as well as you do.   This is a wonderful combination.  The material felt well integrated because it is integrated in you.
~   J. T.

“I am so very grateful to you for offering this class.  There was a ton of very rich material and learning.  You have so much to share! The fact that you asked us to decide on our types for ourselves before receiving the raw scores from the assessment.  This, following the process of learning about the different preferences, then applying the learning to ourselves.  This approach was very powerful.”  ~ Y.D.

“Thank you so much for the information and for an excellent class.  Today’s teleclass was very helpful.  The overlay of HSP makes the MBTI so much more clear.  And the way you describe things is so different from others I have heard that it helps me see things in a very different way; eg, extroverting and introverting as verbs; learning to use your non-dominant skill to support and service your dominant skill.  ~ M.D.
“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.”   ~ L.D.
