What Brings You Joy?
Your energy comes from spending time with people. You take what people say at face value. You make decisions based on your gut feeling or what seems right to you. You prefer order rather than spontaneity.
I get my energy from spending time around people. I crave new experiences and can’t wait to see what’s around the corner. Life is too short not to be living it - so when an exciting opportunity comes my way, you’ll find me jumping on in with both feet! It’s easier for me to understand problems when I can talk about them and get feedback from others.
I believe we all have the right to be heard and listened to. I am committed to making decisions that are best for everyone involved, considering their values. My relationships with people tend to come across as caring and warm because it’s important to me to make everyone around me feel comfortable.
When I’m tuned in to the physical reality of my surroundings (sight, hearing, taste, touch smell), it’s like seeing with fresh eyes. I pay attention and notice things that others might not see or consider important; for me, this is all about observation and remembering details - which I feel make my experiences richer. There’s a practicality there too because what good does learning something if I don’t know how to use it? Experience speaks louder than words!
I use my decision-making (Judging) preference (whether it is Thinking or Feeling) in my outer life. I like to plan and control my life as much as possible. I’m good at checklists and schedules. I like for decisions to be made and things to be in place. This is true for my outer world. My inner world is a bit more flexible and open. Do not confuse Judging with judgmental, in its negative sense about people and events. They are not related.
