About the Program
Psychological typology is valued by those who understand its purpose and the Jungian theory behind it. However, popular culture often categorizes it with horoscopes, divination, and even voodoo–in other words, nothing more than a parlor game. In addition, some are averse to labels of any kind and prefer not to be typed at all.
Where do these misconceptions stem from, why do they still persist, what can be done about them, and, arguably most important of all, are they misconceptions or accurate judgements?
Bring your questions, thoughts, and ideas for the group to ponder, resolve, and enhance. We find that these informal sessions offer tremendous insights to those who are just beginning to explore type, as well as to those who use type extensively in their personal and professional lives.
