About the Program

Peter will discuss his research and interpretation on the J–P scale of the MBTI® including:

  • its origins, purpose, and relationship to C.G. Jung’s theory of psychological types;
  • the distinction between the scale and Jung’s judging and perceiving functions;
  • Isabel Myers’ rationale for the scale and her ideas about perception and judgment;
  • scale items and their arrangements into clusters, subscales, or facets; and
  • the consequent paradox of item responses meaning nothing/something.

The theme is the MBTI is an Indicator of an idea; no statistical material is presented.
