And so the Myth 10.
Interestingly, the different MBTI types do not all occur with the same frequency in the UK general population and can range from about 14% down to 1%.
Emotions are part of life for everyone; regardless of their type, everyone uses Thinking for some decisions and Feeling for others.
We often hear that feelers are inherently more emotional than thinking types and most of the time people will see someone who’s emotional and instantly type them as a “Feeler.” But, don't confuse feeling with emotion. Everyone has emotions about the decisions they make, they just have a different starting point in making those decisions. So please don’t ever call a Thinking type cold. They do have emotions; they just have a different way of showing them!
Here we are at Myth 8 - why do I relate more to some people than others!
Now here's another interesting one...
It shouldn’t be taken as an absolute, but it can help explain some of the frustrations we may have when working with others, particularly if we don’t appreciate why these differences occur.
Have you ever received differing results when you have taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) multiple times? It’s actually quite common.
