AusAPT 2022 Conference: Time & Tide

October 7 @ 5:00 pm October 9 @ 3:00 pm Australia/Sydney

AusAPT’s 30th anniversary conference, Time & Tide: Traditions and Trends in Type, will now be held ONLINE.

We had originally intended to hold an in person conference but, for various reasons, have now pivoted to online. This opens up the opportunity for more people to attend and to present. And we’ve extended the due date for our speaker proposals to 22 May.

It’s an important anniversary, celebrating 30 years since our first conference in 1992. And we invite you to save the date to join us and to submit to speak at the conference now.

It will be a TIME of community, reconnecting and reflecting on traditions and historical perspectives on personality; personal growth and development over time; and life stages.

But the TIDE is always constantly changing as is the world of type. We’re inviting exploration of trends in type, oppositions and cycles, the incoming and outgoing themes and perspectives, new horizons and applications of type, engaging with type in a digital world.

AusAPT First National Conference Program

Personality, Type and other labels—What do they mean; what do they stand for? A Discussion with Peter Geyer

July 14 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm AEST

The language of personality, however presented, can be a minefield of meaning and use, essentially because there are no agreed definitions, interpretations, or perspectives, even in the niche field of psychological type. C.G. Jung chose general language for his constructs, a decision he later reflected on somewhat ruefully; what he meant in particular instances seems to have fallen by the wayside.

So, what is Personality? What is a Type, or a Function? How does Type relate to behaviour, interest or skill. Is Type neoliberal, whether we like it or not? Can there a Type response to pandemics, or conspiracy theories? These questions, and any others that turn up are the focus of a presentation by Peter Geyer, in a casual informal setting.

Party like it’s 1991: Celebrating 30 Years of AusAPT – Phil Kerr

The Australian Association for Psychological Type was formed in 1991 at Australia’s first type conference, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: Australian Perspectives. This year we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of those two milestones. Australians studying theology and spirituality in California in the late 1970s encountered the MBTI and were enthused. On their return they ran seminars and workshops that popularised type in religious communities and schools. During the 1980s, use of the MBTI spread to organisations in the private and public sectors. In response to the growing interest, Mary McGuiness established the Institute for Type Development (ITD) in Sydney. In 1986 she (more…)

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

November 14, 2021 @ 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.

Talking Type Together with your Vital Relationships – Sterling Bates

November 14, 2021 @ 11:45 am 12:45 pm Australia/Sydney

Scientific studies continue to show that the biggest impact on life satisfaction and happiness is our vital relationships and core social bonds. Medical studies show relationship strength as a major factor in long term health outcomes. Learn what some of this research has to say about the crucial importance of relationships. We will cover multiple models, both psychological type models and other relationship-related tools from outside the psychological type space. We will highlight which models offer insights for relationships and also cover which models and strategies don’t work well for building strong relationships. Attendees will get key tools and tips on how to use the different models to help their own relationships and further, help those they care about, or their clients in their relationships too.

Type & Stress: Your type and mind-body connections – Katie Jones

November 14, 2021 @ 10:15 am 11:15 am Australia/Sydney

Our minds and bodies are intricately connected, and our brain’s main job is to keep us alive and safe from threats. In this interactive workshop, we will use an understanding of both the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, as well as research about how the mind and body are connected, to better understand unique stressors and ways to proactively and reactively respond to stress through both of these tools.

Developing a deeper understanding of stressors and how to recover from stress is important for self-understanding, leadership, and growth, as well as a key to understanding others. Leaders at all levels can use this information to help create psychologically safer spaces for their teams, which Google’s Project Aristotle found as one of the keys to team success. Stress is inevitable, but it is not the end of the story!
