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 spontaneity and seeing how things go rather than structure and schedules.
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 perceiving function (whether it is Sensing or Intuition) in my outer life. I’m a flexible person who likes to live by the seat of my pants. I like to be spontaneous and adaptable in all situations. I would rather understand the world than try to organize it. Inside my mind, I may be a bit more organized and decisive. Remember, in type language perceiving means “preferring to take in information.” It does not mean being “perceptive” in the sense of having quick and accurate perceptions about people and events.
