Your energy comes from spending time alone or with one or two people who are close to you. You see meaning in the things that people say. You read between the lines. 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 alone, or with one other person that I’m close to. I’m most comfortable when I’m playing with an idea in my head. I see these ideas in pictures, memories, and replaying reactions from myself and others, like a movie playing in my head. These ideas are mostly consistent and stable for me, though it may take some time for me to go through all of the scenarios before I decide. There are times that I like the idea of something more than the actual thing.
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.
I am a future-oriented thinker. I think about what might be possible and new, which is why I don’t like hands-on experience. I would rather brainstorm a solution with theories and patterns. I’m most interested in patterns and impressions and am able to see them with very little active effort. It just happens naturally. When I think about the past I focus more on the impression of the event rather than the details.
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.
