Wouldn’t it be nice if all personality types got along well with one another? While this would be fantastic, it is usually not how things work out. Some personalities work well with others while others unfortunately don’t.
When reaching out and trying to form new friendships and relationships, it’s important to determine whether or not your personality types will mix well together. The first step in determining if your personality type will mix with another’s is to determine what personality type you have.
Believe it or not, this won’t take you much time to do. As a matter of fact, it is something you can do the next time you have some leisure time. The process may seem difficult but I assure you, it is rather quite simple. All you need to do is ask yourself some simple questions.
Let’s go over some examples…
1. Are You Quick To Respond To Situations?
The time it takes a person to respond to a situation says a lot about their personality. Some people seem like they are almost thinking out loud in certain situations due to the fact that they are very quick to speak and express their thoughts. On the other hand, some people prefer to think things out very well and understand an entire situation before saying a single word.
If you like to think things out thoroughly before speaking, the chances are high that you prefer introversion. On the other hand, if you are rapid when it comes to responding, you likely prefer extroversion.
2. Do You Live In The Past/Future Or Do You Live In The Moment?
Some people have a hard time letting go of the past and can’t help but to constantly dream of the future. Nothing is wrong with this. After all, we all have our own ways of dealing with life. There are also people who live in the present moment.
If you like to live in the here and now, you exhibit traits of the sensing personality type. If you find yourself in the past and the future when it comes to the majority of your thoughts, you likely have an iNtuition personality type.
3. Do You Take The Affects Your Decisions Make On Others Into Consideration?
Thinker personality types tend to be straight forward, even when it may not be the most beneficial thing for someone else’s feelings. A perfect example would be a child saying something about a person’s appearance, not to be hurtful, but because they see it as the truth.
Feeler personality types tend to think about how their actions will affect other people. Even when something negative needs to be said, they will often find a positive and supportive way of saying it.
4. Can You Accept Change
Change is something that can’t really be avoided in life. Things are always changing around us and we can deal with this change in one of two ways. Either we can embrace it and use it to our advantage, or we can let it rock our entire life and cause inconveniences.
If you like to stick to plans and don’t really like the idea of change, you likely possess a judging personality type. On the other hand, if you like the idea of change and have the ability to go with the flow, you likely have a perceiving personality type.
