    EXPERIENCE TYPE MORE DIRECTLY: Hi folks! This is a special podcast and weekly opportunity. At first blush, this may not look 100% type related… but if you want to see beyond persona and ego defenses to experience each of the 16 types more directly, this is a great practice. I have notes for each type.

    Probably the easiest way to understand is to observe others try it. Iris offers sessions every Friday, 11am-2pm Pacific time. You can just observe if you wish (without taking the session). More info here:

    This was excellent. I didn’t really understand how the process of interaction went between the participants. I would like to know more.
