How Do You Best Relate to the World?
Carl Jung identified four ways to understand the world around us, and each of these corresponds to one of the four elements. Which one do you think best fits you? Sensing people relate to the world as revealed by their five senses, whereas intuitive people tend to operate on gut feeling. Thinking people examine the world rationally, and feeling people evaluate their experiences on the basis of whether they are left with a good or bad feeling. If you have ever taken a Meyers-Briggs personality test, the sensing type is represented by an S in your four-letter personality type. The intuitive type is an N. The thinking type is a T. Finally, the feeling type is an F. You'll notice that you have two of these four letters in your personality type, but as we can only vote for one option I am asking everyone to choose just one they think best represents them. Later, we'll talk about the correspondence between each type and its element. | FOPP | 100-Challenge | Personality | Elements | Psychology | Jung |
