Mindset Shift – Evolving Our Conversations About Individuation – Katherine W Hirsh
November 12, 2021 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm Australia/Sydney
Type has great potential as a self-awareness tool, yet this frequently remains untapped because its users struggle to answer the “So What?” and “Now what?” questions, missing the chance to relate type theory to people’s lives. Part of what’s needed may be a deeper understanding of type, however we also frequently underestimate the barriers to increasing self-awareness and enacting behavior change.
I will describe three mindsets that can derail our efforts. Mindset one involves believing people need to know why they should do something, rather than showing them the negative outcome if they fail to make a change. Mindset two entails believing external motivations for growth and change, couched in terms of control and compliance, are more effective than internal motivations expressed in terms of mastery and engagement. Mindset number three hinges on the belief in a zero-sum world where individuation is an outcome to be reached, rather than an ongoing journey to be navigated.
