How can we overcome one-sidedness and integrate opposing functions into our lives? For example, what might Thinking and Feeling look like when we use them in an integrated way in our daily lives? Jung described the tension of opposites as a source of energy and means to growth. But what does this process and its fruits look like in practice? In this session, we explore type-specific ways to identify, foster, and transform tensions in healthy, rewarding ways. We draw on “tandem dynamics”, the “spine of the personality”, and the “wisdom of the 6th function”. Includes reflective activities, sharing, and professional color handouts for use in your own workshops.
Your presenter Dario Nardi, PhD is world-renowned for his research on the neuroscience of personality. He is the CEO of Radiance House, author of numerous Type books, and senior lecturer at the University of California (Los Angeles).
