J and P: Who Procrastinates?

Clarifying Type’s J/P Dichotomy: The What, Who and Why of Procrastination

The fourth dichotomy, or pair, in the type code is often confusing. This confusion gives rise to misinterpretations – “are you a J or a P?”  Let’s put this confusion to rest and arrive at a clear understanding of the two dichotomies – Judging/Perceiving and Extraversion/Introversion and the functions of the type code as C.G. Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers intended.

This program/workshop will be rich with experiential exercises, information, fun, and will give you tools for your profession of helping people using type and bring depth to your personal understanding of type.  We will:

  • Clarify Extraversion/Introversion and Judging/Perceiving as Attitudes, not Functions and discover why this is crucial to understanding type and your own MBTI type code.
  • Clarify the concept of Ambiversion and its misconception in type.
  • Sort out the P for perceiving from P for procrastinating
  • Discuss who really procrastinates, the reasons we procrastinate and what we can do to manage or minimize it.
