I absolutely love writing these newsletters! You'd
think that after all these years of teaching "type
theory" I'd be bored by it. To the contrary, it just
becomes more interesting and fulfilling for me. In this
June issue, we talk about the third dimension of
behavior - how we make Decisions -
Thinking or Feeling. Understanding these two
preferences will be a valuable assistance in your
The article from Type Talk on being a Thinking
Woman or a Feeling Man will explain any possible
confusion you've had with "logical" women
and "sensitive" men. And, if you have
children of these types, this information will be very
I'm one of these Thinking women, and this knowledge
has been very powerful for me in understanding why
I often "take the breath away" from people with my
ability to be so direct. I think I'm saving time and
being honest - they
feel as though they've been "punched in the gut."
We look forward to hearing from you.
|HOW WE MAKE DECISIONS - THINKING OR FEELING
The third dimension of behavior in type theory is how
we prefer to make Decisions. Thinking
and Feeling describe the two ways people make
decisions, or come to conclusions. Each of us has a
natural inborn preference for one behavior over the
other and Thinking and Feeling both describe rational
decision-making processes. It's not that Thinkers
have no feelings, or that Feelers are incapable of
logic - it's just that they use very different criteria to
make their decisions.
It's no surprise that preferences for Thinking or
Feeling influence career choices. The helping
professions attract large numbers of Feelers because
this gives them an opportunity to fulfill one of their
greatest needs, helping people. Business and
management attracts a lot of Thinkers because when
it comes to being able to make a decision that is
based on the bottom line, Thinkers are more easily
able to make the tough decision and take the
|WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE A THINKING WOMAN OR A FEELING MAN?
What's it like when the world expects you to be one
way, and you're just the opposite? What's it like to
often surprise people, or shock them? What's it like
to be a Thinking woman, or a Feeling man?
When growing up, the Thinking woman identifies with
boys and men and usually has trouble fitting in with
girls and women. The Feeling man feels
most "different" in times of conflict and even though
as chldren they learn to hide their sensitive
side when around other boys, in adolescence their
Feeling side is welcomed in the company of young
women and creates envy in their teenage male

What clients are saying about us.....
The session that I led for our company's twenty
Human Resource & Training Professionals went very
well and the feedback I received was wonderful. The
participants truly enjoyed discovering their "type"
and learning about their peers as well. They loved
The PEOPLE Process tools and said they made it easy
to stay engaged and gave them information in a clear
and concise way. The session lasted about 2-1/2
hours and they were hungry for more! I referred
them to the TPP participant book for further reading.
The learning session was indeed "profound" for all the
participants. As our organization determines next
steps for The PEOPLE Process, I will keep in touch.

assess personality type preferences.
