Sharing your Knowledge in a Podcasting and YouTube World – Joel Mark Witt & Antonia Dodge

November 14 @ 1:15 pm 2:15 pm Australia/Sydney

The internet is forcing type communities to change & grow… fast.

On one side of the type community we see a seasoned generation of type professionals who have spent years refining their knowledge & wisdom. On the other side are young people eager to express and share their newly discovered love of type on every major social media platform.

Young people are excited about type & want to talk about it on podcasts, YouTube videos, and Facebook posts. But often these new “influencers” are unaware that typology is a mature discipline with years of research, development, and commerce baked into its ethos.

How do we preserve what has come before while adapting to the changing new media landscape?

In this presentation Joel & Antonia guide us through the practical steps they’ve used to bridge this gap. As podcast hosts, they will peel back the curtain of new media to showcase ideas you can use in your practice whether you are just getting started or have been teaching type for decades.

After a year as an MBTI coach, what lessons have been learned?

Topics that will be covered:

Joe Arrigo is a newbie to the professional Type space. What started as a mild interest exploded into an obsession and a coaching business. His goal is to help people find their place in the world by bringing clarity to their personality type. If it can impact a stubborn INTJ like himself, it can certainly do the same for others. He resides primarily on Linkedin and YouTube, and tries to bridge the gap between the Old Guard and New Guard of type.

Archetype & Type – Kesstan Blandin & Yvonne Nelson-Reid

November 14 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

C.G. Jung’s theories of archetype and psychological type are seminal works underlying the psychic structure of personality in individuals. In this session, an analysis of a large correlational study with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument and the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator (PMAI) assessment will be presented, analyzed, and discussed. We will attempt to weave theories (e.g., Jung, Hillman, Pearson, Beebe, Hunziker) with the empirical data to discover together how archetypes and psychological types complement, challenge, and deepen one another.

Kesstan Blandin

Kesstan Blandin, PhD is the VP, Research & Development for the Center for Applications of Psychological Type in Gainesville FL, where she oversees research for Jungian assessments on type (MBTI/MMTIC) and archetype (PMAI). For several years, Kesstan was an academic professor and researcher in a graduate psychology program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in CA and at the Dartmouth Centers for Health & Aging in NH. She has published on psychological type, archetypes, and dementia.

Yvonne Nelson-Reid

Yvonne Nelson-Reid, PhD, is the Senior Development Associate at the Center for Applications of Psychological Type (CAPT®), a mother of 5, writer, teacher, depth psychologist – Jungian and archetypal studies (MA, PhD), and career coach. Yvonne’s MA in Educational Research focused on Jungian theory where her thesis explored insights into the MBTI® assessment. As a certified MBTI® (master practitioner) and certified MMTIC® professional, she uses typology as a tool for helping others understand differences and communicate more effectively.

Gottman, Beebe, and Jung – Some Correlations – Vicky Jo Varner

November 13 @ 4:15 pm 5:15 pm Australia/Sydney

This session describes John Gottman’s contemporary research and his conception of the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,” with their disastrous impact on relationships. These “Horsemen” can be correlated with John Beebe and Jung’s work on archetypes. We will conduct a visualization to help participants come into relationship with their own experience of one of these “Horsemen,” and thereby capture it phenomenologically. Please bring paper and some art supplies—colored pencils or markers or crayons.

Stress and Resilience in the World of Covid-19 – Mary McGuiness

November 13 @ 2:45 pm 3:45 pm Australia/Sydney

The world has experienced enormous change and stress in 2020 and 2021. Covid-19 has impacted on our personal lives, family life, work life, social life and, for some, our physical and/or emotional health. People have responded in many different ways. Type theory suggests that each type will experience the stress differently and will likely use different strategies to cope. Let’s explore how the changes have impacted on us to see what impact personality type has had. We will also look more broadly at what Jung and type can tell us about stress and resilience. What does the theory say about stress for each type? And, more importantly, how do we take care of ourselves, and each other, so that we keep some balance in our lives and can learn something from the experience.

Four Flavors of Type – Dario Nardi

November 13 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am AEDT

What flavor of your type are you?
Having an answer can make a difference. Some people really puzzle over their best-fit type. Or, they feel unusual for their type, perhaps as a result of upbringing or type development. Or, they are making a career change and want extra advice. What’s the saying, “Every ENFP is like every other ENFP, like some other ENFPs, and like no other ENFP.” Some differences are small, and some really matter.
Lately, research is coming together on flavors of type. Neuroscience data supports that people use their brains in ways that meet their type preferences. They also develop in ways that reflect their cultural upbringing, career choice, and more. These brain differences sort into clusters or as 4 cardinal points around a wheel. We will explore 4 flavors of type: Dominant, Creative, Normalizing or Harmonizing. (Thanks Dr. Victor Gulenko for these names.) This includes examples from specific types and reference materials that you can use.

Motivation in the age of uncertainty – Catherine Stothart

November 12 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm Australia/Sydney

Feeling motivated is an essential part of mental health and well-being but many people do not know what really motivates them or how to sustain their motivation. Temperament theory is a perfect tool to help our clients connect to their sense of purpose. But motivation is also about persistence and resilience. Catherine will share an approach to motivation which links temperament theory to academic theories of motivation. In temperament groups, we will explore the beliefs that can act as accelerators or brakes on our performance and work out strategies for persistence and resilience which fit with who we are. By bridging the gap between the temperament lens of type and academia we can bring the benefits of both worlds to our clients to enable them to live more fulfilled lives. This creates a powerful combination for practical action to sustain our motivation and well-being in our uncertain world. The session will be interactive with break out groups and activities.

Goldilocks and the 8 Cognitive Processes – Sue Blair

November 12 @ 5:15 pm 6:15 pm Australia/Sydney

Assumption: The perfect human being has not yet been created. Even Mary Poppins said she was only “practically perfect” (in every way!!!) So, how, why and where do we go wrong and what can we do about it? The truth is that we all use all of these functions, but we tend not to use each of them equally well. There is a time and energy component to their use and, for some, use of a function is habitual and for others it is momentary. In this session we put the Goldilocks Theory to the test. We will take a look at each of the cognitive processes, define them and then suggest ways in which we can use each of them ‘too much’, ‘too little’ and (on a good day) ‘just right’. There is no better place than a Type conference to gather our combined wisdom and learn from each other about what it is really like to be us. A place where we honour diversity and practice inclusivity. We will learn, laugh and leave enlightened.
