Just looking at a few threads, I can tell I'm going to learn a lot here. Can't wait.
I've come because I'm currently taking a course in conflict and negotiation and that has led me to study personality types. I've dabbled a bit in the Enneagram, and in general I find myself confused OFTEN by the inability to decide upon dominant types, etc. So, any help in this regard would be great.
More about me...
I live in the UK, am from western Canada, lived in Saudi Arabia and Qatar - am a teacher, am also a published songwriter and have pursued my music career avidly until the downloading era sucked whatever money was in music out to dry. I am a creative person. I've got an interest in business management, have produced festivals and events and generally think my next career path is going to be psychologist or psychotherapist (as they call it here in the UK). I have been to over 24 countries, love Asia, have escaped a war in Lebanon (2006), just missed the Asian tsunami (2004), live in an artsy, hippy, cafe-laden, BBC employee haven (these types congregate in my neighbourhood) in Manchester, UK. I'm easily stressed, constantly overwork and can't figure out if I'm truly an extrovert or an introvert, because as much as I love people, I'm quiet in groups - socially - and I rejuvenate best at home, alone, though after awhile I need to be around a good friend. I don't need crowds, just a few good friends. I'm prone to being a pessimist and moody/down, but I am tenacious and strive to push through the barriers of my own anxieties, fear, life, etc., and generally get what I want in life. When I don't, it really throws me. I've worked with the Qatari royal family, and enjoy wealth...been there, done that...gutted when I lost a lot of money on the markets in 2008, so you could call me a risk taker. What else? Finally, I am passionate about coffee. So much so, I produced a coffee festival in 2013 - the largest one in the north of the UK, and one of only a few in the world.
I need some help with figuring out what personality type I am, as I have to use/know this for a course case study I'm doing. I think I'm an ENTP, but not sure. I could be an INTP, as I really relish lots of time at home alone, as much as I enjoy being around people. As an English teacher, I constantly feel burned out, so that makes me crave alone time like mad. Thanks, all!
Looking forward to virtually 'meeting' you.
