    Default Keeping secrets

    Do you keep people's secrets? Is keeping secrets type-related?

    I'm guessing it's "Yielding" types, since it says that "Obstinates" "Freely [share] all of the information that they have seen, gathered or concluded...."

    Somehow, according to this piece of information, Yielding types would be less likely to expose a secret, but honestly I haven't thought a lot about this issue

    It helps when the person explicitly says "Hey, I don't want you to tell anyone this." Because as soon as they say that, then I make it a priority to honor that.

    While it may be type related I think this is more question of character than type.

    Yeah, same. I usually think about the people the secret concerns, and who's on the same level of intimacy with them as I am, who the secret-teller wouldn't mind telling. Sometimes the secret practically requires discussion, so I need to find people to talk to it about, but I'd only approach people who already know. The only exception is when the secret concerns me personally, and I need to talk to others about it, then I can't keep my mouth shut.
