What got you interested in personality types in the first place well?

US Julie. Thank you for having me on the podcast first of all. What got me into it? It was very accidental. I was just told about it by my brother. He was hanging out with some friends and he said Oh we were talking about. Personality Types Myers Briggs. We think you might be this type. So that was like in the back of my head for a while simmering marinating, and after a while, it was like maybe I should take this test. See what it’s all about. I found one online took it and I got I N F J as my type.

A bit of a rough time, not knowing what I was doing with my lie, so it just eventually evolved into making youtube videos about it, and then people watched it, so I kept making more and here I am today before we go into dating with personality types


And then I went back to my brother, and said what type did you say you thought I was and he was like I j, so that was like a moment. That was a moment resume. Ha! Maybe there’s something to this and I just started to research it. I was going through a period in my life where I was like I didn’t have much else. Going on a so I was like. Foreign teed. Exactly so I was just trying to figure. Figure myself out I was going to kind of like.

Obviously why we’re here today, but I feel like a lot of people myself included might not even know the. The difference between the Myers Briggs in the enemy. Graham the any Graham. So can you break that down for us? Yeah, the so there’s a few different personality systems that people are probably hearing about Myers Briggs, I think maybe the most popular, and that has sixteen types, and it actually goes back to the work of Carl Young back in the early nineteen hundreds dividing people based. Based on the preferences of how they view the world at like how they view reality, and then how they make is a whole different thing that has nine different types, and that’s based more on like your innate fear in life.

Your personality types, but then now I think it’s so much more prevalent because employers are using it for part of their recruiting, people use it for compatibility

The thing that’s driving you the thing. You’re trying to get away from all the time and the thing. Thing that you’re always aspiring toward and that’s that’s very popular as well and then there’s the big five which is a little less sexy, but it’s scientific also where there’s five personality traits that people can measure to kind of statistically say where you fall relative to everyone else so do you have one that you focus on or you kind of like an equal opportunity out? I like all of them. But I think Myers Briggs is what my my biggest interest in where most of my expertise is? Do you remember back in the day? When personality types in these personality tests were basically learning about your astrology?

I really think it was just one of those things you get drunk at a party. Why do you think it’s so important to know and recognize your personality type? That’s a good point and a lot of people draw the comparison still to horoscopes and I think that’s because people could take it like a horoscope where you just take some random tests read a profile that’s very positive and makes you feel good about yourself, and then they’re like. Oh Great! That’s my type, and then you get drunk at a party and you’re talk about it.
