Creativity tied to mental illness - StumbleUpon Irrelevance can make you mad By William J. Cromie Harvard News Office Ignoring what seems irrelevant to your immediate needs may be good for your mental health but bad for creativity. Focusing on every sight, sound, and thought that enters your mind can drive a person crazy. "Scientists have wondered for a long time why madness and creativity seem linked, particularly in artists, musicians, and writers," notes Shelley Carson, a Harvard psychologist. Carson, Jordan Peterson (now at the University of Toronto), and Daniel Higgins did experiments to find out what these conditions might be. They put 182 Harvard graduate and undergraduate students through a series of tests involving listening to repeated strings of nonsense syllables, hearing background noise, and watching yellow lights on a video screen. The students also filled out questionnaires about their creative achievements on a new type of form developed by Carson, and they took standard intelligence tests. IQ and creativity
MBTI Basics The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. "Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. In developing the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator [instrument], the aim of Isabel Briggs Myers, and her mother, Katharine Briggs, was to make the insights of type theory accessible to individuals and groups. The identification of basic preferences of each of the four dichotomies specified or implicit in Jung's theory. The identification and description of the 16 distinctive personality types that result from the interactions among the preferences."
Enneagram of Personality History The origins and historical development of the Enneagram of Personality are matters of dispute. Wiltse and Palmer have suggested that similar ideas to the Enneagram of Personality are found in the work of Evagrius Ponticus, a Christian mystic who lived in 4th century Alexandria. Evagrius identified eight logismoi ("deadly thoughts") plus an overarching thought he called "love of self". G. Claudio Naranjo is a Chilean-born psychiatrist who first learned about the Enneagram of Personality from Ichazo at a course in Arica, Chile. Enneagram figure Enneagram figure Nine types The table below gives the principal characteristics of the nine types along with their basic relationships. Wings Most, but not all, Enneagram of Personality theorists teach that a person's basic type is modified, at least to some extent, by the personality dynamics of the two adjacent types as indicated on the enneagram figure.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Carl Jung in 1910. Myers and Briggs extrapolated their MBTI theory from Jung's writings in his book Psychological Types A chart with descriptions of each Myers-Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.:1 These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923). Jung theorized that there are four principal psychological functions by which we experience the world: sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking. One of these four functions is dominant most of the time. Concepts As the MBTI Manual states, the indicator "is Designed to Implement a theory; therefore the theory must be understood to understand the MBTI".:1 Type Four dichotomies

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Model of personality types A chart with descriptions of each Myers–Briggs personality type and the four dichotomies central to the theory. In personality typology, the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The test attempts to assign a value to each of four categories: introversion or extraversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving. One letter from each category is taken to produce a four-letter test result, such as "INTP" or "ESFJ". The MBTI was constructed by two Americans: Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers, who were inspired by the book Psychological Types by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. History Briggs began her research into personality in 1917. Myers' work attracted the attention of Henry Chauncey, head of the Educational Testing Service. Format and administration
Management-Wissen: Wie funktioniert Kundenbindung? Jeder fünfte Kunde der Industrieunternehmen in Deutschland ist weder zufrieden noch loyal Die Abbildung zeigt die Kundentypologie für Anbieter von Industrieprodukten und Dienstleistungen in Deutschland. "Apostel" stellen die Idealkunden dar: Sie sind zufrieden und loyal. Diese machen immerhin 42 Prozent der Kunden aus. Weitere 26 Prozent sind "Söldner", also zufriedene, aber wenig loyale Kunden, die oft beim günstigsten Anbieter kaufen. Alleine zufriedene Kunden zu haben, reicht nicht aus. Suche nach "Terroristen" und ihren Gründen Unternehmen, die über einen hohen Anteil an "Terroristen" verfügen, müssen die Ursachen dafür identifizieren. Fast alle Unternehmen haben auch unzufriedene Kunden. 3. Unternehmen suchen zunehmend nach einer monetären Argumentation für ihre Kundenbindungsmaßnahmen. TNS Infratest hat häufig die Gelegenheit, den Zusammenhang des TRI*M Index mit dem Geschäftserfolg mit Hilfe von unternehmensinternen Daten zu quantifizieren.
