In this podcast you’ll find:

  • How does the system of our Myers-Briggs® personality type work together to help us make our decisions?
    • Can knowing our type help us make better decisions? The power of models, maps and tools
    • Example – an ENTJ and a box of cookies
  • What does a systems thinking approach to decision making look like?
  • Why decision making is difficult in a post-modern world.
  • How an ENTJ and an INTP can use their cognitive functions to decide whether or not to buy the box of cookies.
  • Understanding your backseat functions – what to do if the decision is coming from your 10 Year Old or 3 Year Old function.
  • Coaching others to help them make better decisions for themselves
  • What are the two different roles the Perceiving and the Judging functions play in decision making?
  • Why is it harder for Perceivers to make decisions?
    • How introverted and extraverted judging functions differ in coming to decisive action.
    • The importance of “experiencing” as a Perceiver
  • How can understanding the nature of our functions help with decision making?:
    • Memory (Si) and Perspectives (Ni) – how their infinite nature can trick us
    • Accuracy (Ti) and Authenticity (Fi) – why they can never come to a satisfying conclusion
    • Exploration (Ne) and Sensation (Se) – why do they need to explore?
    • Harmony (Fe) and Effectiveness (Te) – the downside of making quick decisions
  • Activity – use the Car Model to answer question: “should I buy a pack of cookies?”
  • Each function has a different relationship with consuming cookies.

    That’s what I meant. I’m not sure of my type, but it seems that I’m an introvert with Fi in my stack.

    Great episode. I’ve been trying to understand a few things about myself better and I think this episode is helping me along in that regard. The comparison between introverted feeling and introverted thinking was pretty eye opening. I definitely experience a lot of introverted thinking skepticism and doubt, but my main focus isn’t as much on understanding reality (Ti) as much as it is on understanding myself (Fi). It would be great to hear a similar quick comparison between Si and Ni to figure out whether I’m in an FiNi or FiSi loop right now. Additionally, the contrast of the decision making between J’s and P’s was great. I definitely have a lot of issues getting into action and this podcast shed some light on why. Lastly, the question vs. answers discussion was very insightful. I’ve been struggling with asking myself the question “How do you know that?” so often that it gets hard for me to make up my mind on things. Being able to tentatively label that as a perceiving function may help me get a better handle on it.

    Long time listener, first time commenter. I think this is my favorite PH podcast episode thus far.
