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;
• 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

Cost: $169 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 = $152  … 🙂  And just so you know, $20 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 March 16 ,  2016.  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 June 9, 2016. 

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.

What Others Have Said:

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

  2. Hi Jacquelyn,

    I’d love to dial in to this and attend. I’m a 36-yr old American but have been living abroad Thailand and Bali for past 3 years. Recently transitioning into coaching. Have done extensive research about my HSP trait and think I’m an ENFJ, but would like to get accurate confirmation by you and learn much more to see how these gifts can benefit my client and purpose in life. My only concern with registering is how would I get the handouts if I’m living in Bali. Any way to have them mailed over in time? Let me know and I’d be more than happy to register. Thanks for your help 🙂

      Hi Christopher,
      The handouts from my Myers Briggs/ HSP Overlay teleclass are sent via email in PDF form… So that problem is resolved.
      The other concern would be the time zone differences …. The classes are from 10:00 am – 11:30 am (Mountain Standard time) which is
      Colorado, USA.
      Also, I’ve just changed the Spring dates to March 19 and 26 …. please email me at to discuss the
      possibilities further. Thanks for reaching out …

    I have been administering the MBTI for over 15 years now. I am certified and have been working on the Master Practitioner accreditation for the past 3 years.
    1. Will your class qualify for CE for the Master Practitioner
    2. Would the class be beneficial to me? Just recently I identified myself as HSP and that was a very relieving and exciting experience. My type preference is ESFJ (E & F are very slight and S & J are very clear) .

    • Jacquelyn says:

      Hi Joe, No, my Myers Briggs/ HSP Overlay teleclass does not qualify for CE’s. And, yes, I think the class would be very beneficial to you
      because we overlay Elaine Aron’s D.O.E.S. – 1) Depth of Processing ; 2) Overstimulation; 3) Emotional Intensity and 4) Sensitive to Subtleties … especially as it relates to the HSP & the Extravert / Introvert preferences. As you may know, a “slight” preference indicates some type of turmoil or transition between preferences … I will announce the next group teleclass in my newsletter …. Thanks Joe … hope to “meet” you in class.
