Work-Life Balance, Stress and the Process of Individuation—Mary McGuiness

October 8, 2022 @ 11:45 am 12:45 pm Australia/Sydney

The individuation process is a term used by Carl Gustav Jung to describe the process of becoming inwardly whole, discovering one’s true self, beyond the mask of the persona and ego-centered life. Individuation generally has a profound healing effect on the person. It is a process that allows us to be our most creative and to fulfil the soul’s deepest desire.

Our busy lives sometimes hinder our growth towards wholeness as the stress reduces our cognitive functioning and emotional intelligence. Work-Life Balance is essential in reducing stress and allowing the process of growth and individuation to occur. We will explore how research has suggested some ‘best practices’ that can help us to prevent stress and improve resilience so that we can function at our best. We will look at these practices and some suggestions Jung gave us on how to facilitate our own growth and individuation.

Type and Music Preferences—Ian Ball

October 8, 2022 @ 11:45 am 12:45 pm Australia/Sydney

There are many reasons why particular pieces of music attract us and why we go back to those preferences. There are also reasons why particular styles of music are ones we avoid or find unbearable.

In 2006 Elwin Hall and I conducted a workshop at the AusAPT conference exploring these ideas and looked for linkages between one’s preferred type and one’s preferences for music.

This new session for the conference on Time & Tide: Traditions and Trends in Type reviews the research conducted since then and serves as an update on this theme. The new evidence gives much more confidence about the relationships. There has been a reconceptualisation about music preferences and this will be explained in the session.

It is hoped that participants will have a greater appreciation of the linkages between type and preferences for music with particular attributes.

The Most Common Enneagram Types of Each MBTI Type—Joyce Meng

October 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

The Most Common Enneagram Types of Each MBTI Type | How the Enneagram Intersects with the 16 Types

A current trend in the MBTI community is the heavy incorporation of the Enneagram.

The presentation will be geared around the most common Enneagram types for each of the 16 types. I describe an overview of the Enneagram types, how it overlays with the MBTI, and why it is becoming a trend in the MBTI community to combine these two systems.

The session outcome will be to teach people about the correlations between the Enneagram and MBTI and to teach the basics of the Enneagram. Audience members will walk away with a better understanding of type and why the Enneagram is becoming more popular in the MBTI community.

The Trimorphic Ethoi of Psychological Types—Vicky Jo Varner

October 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

Psychological Types is typically presented as a singular idea within one discipline. However, within that discipline, it can be discerned that there are three prevalent perspectives, or ethoi, in conveying the types. This session delves into these three different ethoi and relates them to the psychological types model, interspersed with interactive exercises to help attendees experience each of them and confront their differences. This presentation is academic in nature with cutting-edge content, so be prepared to immerse yourself in something that is philosophically challenging yet rewarding.

Underutilized Oppositions in the Lenses We Use—Sterling Bates

October 8, 2022 @ 10:15 am 11:15 am Australia/Sydney

Underutilized Oppositions in the Lenses We Use: Essential Motivators and Interaction Styles with Sterling Bates

A talk about an underutilized resource in the world of psychological type, the 6 dynamics from Essential Motivators (Temperament) and Interaction Styles. They are powerful both in helping you flex to meet someone else’s needs and to discover points of commonality. For example, every Essential Motivator has both a dynamic that aligns with and two dynamics where they are opposing with the other three Essential Motivators. Like Polarity Thinking, a key to using dynamics is knowing when it is the right time to flex, and when it is the right time to rely on your naturally preferred dynamic.

In this session, I will familiarize attendees with the dynamics; those unfamiliar will get a great grounding in the dynamics; and provide tips and tricks attendees can use themselves as well as activities to use in their personal life and with clients. This will include uses in whole type best-fit, communication, work problems, delegation, Situational Leadership®, and relationship issues.

Midlife Development: A Crisis? A Crash? Or a Cruise? – Angelina Bennet

October 7, 2022 @ 7:45 pm 8:45 pm Australia/Sydney

Midlife is a time when many of us take stock of our life and think about what we want for our future. In this session we will review theories of midlife from the type perspective, consider the possible accelerating impact of the pandemic, and consider how to craft the life we want for ourselves.

After reviewing some of the theories of Type Development, particularly around midlife, we will take a look at the facts that influence our midlife development. With the opportunity to have some small group discussions, participants will be able to share experiences and thoughts on the mid-life stage. In the final part, I will present some ideas about how to coach or develop clients who are already well developed and who may be questioning their career paths and their purpose in life.

Traditions and Trends in Delivering Type Learning Events – Susan Nash

October 8, 2022 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm Australia/Sydney

Traditionally, type learning events were held in-person. With the pandemic, those assumptions were challenged and many type professionals have moved their learning and coaching practices to the virtual world. With the emergence from the pandemic, we are faced with a unique opportunity to reframe how we deliver effective learning type interventions. To what extent can we combine in-person and virtual sessions? How might hybrid sessions work with remote and in-person participants? How can we optimise technology to streamline the learning experience and appeal to different learning styles? How can we change how we deliver in-person events to ensure maximum engagement and retention?

In this hands-on session, participants will walk away with a wide variety of activities to add flexibility and relevance to type sessions together with a clearer understanding of the engagement skills required when facilitating adult, active learning.
