“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:
“It is up to each person to recognize his or her preferences.”

One of the main goals of the Myers Briggs/HSP Overlay 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 the confusion surrounding your authentic type. In this case, additional charges would apply.
“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
Here is what you will learn in Part One and Two of this Myers Briggs/HSP Overlay Class :
Part One, Saturday, February 6, 2021 – 1.5 hours:
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, Friday, February 13, 2021 , 1.5 hours:
You will learn about the Dominant, 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:
- To differentiate between five temperaments: introversion, extroversion, the sensitive introvert, the sensitive extrovert, the ambivert
- Why many HSPs may have felt they were “swimming upstream” from the dominant culture
- Why many HSPs may have felt more challenged to meet goals they have set for themselves
- The major confusion about the HSP Extravert – and why there may be more sensitive extroverts than we previously thought – (Hint: social anxiety ?)
- Why someone might have different scores each time they have taken a Myers Briggs assessment
- Why scoring “right in between” two preferences such as the J and P or E and I does not indicate one is “well-balanced” between the two
- About your least preferred function (the inferior function) and why this is crucial to what Carl Jung called full type spiritual individuation, and how the least preferred function can serve you
- Why we need all 16 types and why HSPs need non-HSPs and vice versa;
- To better understand the similarities and differences among people
- How your family of origin or school experience may have erroneously influenced your authentic self; and
- How Differential Susceptibility can affect how affect your introvert or extrovert preferences
As part of this class 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.
Jacquelyn has been a certified practitioner of the Myers Briggs Assessment since 1993 and has administered the MBTI to hundreds, most of them HSPs.
Here are a few comments from past participants:
“The HSP MBTI Class was extremely valuable and informative for me. I have spent many years casually reading about MBTI, but Jacquelyn was able to provide me with a deep understanding of the subject and understanding of my own type. It has been super helpful and healing in understanding myself and how I relate to the world. It was especially informative as to how being highly sensitive relates to MBTI and the different ways that it is expressed. I would highly recommend this course!!!” Eric F (October 2020)
“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 class was very helpful. The overlay of HSP makes the MBTI so much clearer. 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; e.g., 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.
