ENFP This article is about the Myers-Briggs personality type. For the Socionics ENFp, see Intuitive Ethical Extrovert. ENFP (Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling, Perception) is an abbreviation used in the publications of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to refer to one of sixteen personality types.[1] The MBTI assessment was developed from the work of prominent psychiatrist Carl G. Jung in his book Psychological Types. Jung proposed a psychological typology based on the theories of cognitive functions that he developed through his clinical observations. The MBTI instrument[edit] The MBTI preferences indicate the differences in people based on the following:[5] By using their preference in each of these areas, people develop what Jung and Myers called psychological type. The MBTI tool consists of multiple choice questions that sort respondents on the basis of the four "dichotomies" (pairs of psychological opposites).

Thinking Dispositions: Thinking Dispositions: A review of current theories, practices, and issues by Shari Tishman and Albert Andrade Introduction What does it mean to be a good thinker? In an effort to account for the affective and attitudinal dimension of high-level thinking, many scholars and educators involved in the thinking skills movement have urged attention to what are often called "thinking dispositions." There are three parts to this document. Part Two is a brainstorm of issues and questions concerning thinking dispositions that occurred in the Summer of 1994 at the 6th International Conference of Thinking, held at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Part Three is a bibliography of books, articles and programs that either are directly about, or relevant to, thinking dispositions. We recognize that, although interest in thinking dispositions has increased in recent years, it is by no means a new concept. Part One: Overview of Recent Work in the Field 1. 2. 3. 4.

VARK: A REVIEW OF THOSE WHO ARE MULTIMODAL Recently my views about those who are multimodal have been extended. Here is my current thinking. Multimodal preferences dominate the database for all populations and it is clearly the most used set of preferences when making decisions about learning. Usually one third of respondents are in the four-part VARK set and another large group are in the groups who have three or two preferred modalities. Context Specific Approach Those who have a multimodal approach to learning and decision-making are now seen in two groups with an indistinct boundary or transition between them. Whole-Sense Approach This second group within the multimodal VARK category uses a number of their modes (2, 3 or all four) in combination, to make decisions,to learn and to present materials to others. Some, may criticize them for taking a long time to make a decision. Sequencing

Champion (role variant) The Champion Idealist is one of the 16 role variants of the Keirsey Temperament Sorter,[1] a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves. David Keirsey originally described the Champion role variant; however, a brief summary of the personality types described by Isabel Myers contributed to its development. Champions correlate with the Myers-Briggs type ENFP.[2] Champions are introspective, cooperative, informative, and expressive. Champions are very individualistic and they feel a need to experience significant social events. Champions are keen observers of the people around them.

Mind Hacks Creative Thinking Bottom line, two kinds of thinking take place in an organization: Convergent thinking (i.e. linear, logical, left-brained thinking) and divergent thinking (i.e. playful, associative, right-brained thinking). Both are needed. Both, indeed, are sides of the same coin. In our experience, however, divergent thinking is in woeful short-supply these days. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Keirsey Temperament Sorter Heading text[edit] The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS) is a self-assessed personality questionnaire designed to help people better understand themselves and others. It was first introduced in the book Please Understand Me. It is one of the most widely used personality assessments in the world, and its user base consists of major employers including Bank of America, Allstate, the U.S. Four temperaments[edit] David Keirsey expanded on the ancient study of temperament by Hippocrates and Plato. Artisans are concrete and adaptable. Guardians are concrete and organized. Idealists are abstract and compassionate. Rationals are abstract and objective. Understanding the sorter descriptions[edit] Although the descriptions of the individual temperaments and role variants were written as a whole, temperament itself can be understood by comparing it to the rings of a tree:[4] The inner ring: abstract versus concrete According to Keirsey, everyone can engage in both observation and introspection.
