Group SCAB: Personality types – By HUSH, the SCA Intake of 18/19
By HUSH – The SCA intake of 18/19
Last week we had a masterclass from Mark Palmer, in which he talked about different personalities and what they mean for creatives and for teamwork. He talked about introverts & extroverts, and how we can support one another, but he also touched on the difference between intuition and sense, thinking and feeling, and judgement and perception. Some of us see details while some of us see the bigger picture… some of us thrive on chaos, others on order… etc. In other words, without naming it, he translated the Myers Briggs personalities into ‘our’ language, and made us think about how we work and what makes us tick.
While the point was that we are all different and we’re all on a spectrum, it was kind of interesting to see where we – as a group of creatives with similar goals and mostly compatible personalities – overlapped and where we parted. So, we all decided to take a free but hopefully somewhat credible version of the Myers Briggs test, and compare results.
The test we took:
The results we got:
ENTP – The Debater
ENFP – The campaigner
ENFJ – The Protagonist
INFP – The Mediator
INFJ – The Advocate
ESTP – The Entrepreneur
ENTJ – The Commander
INTP – The Logician
ISFJ – The Defender
What we learned, I guess, is that they aren’t called campaigners for nothing. While it’s interesting that a lot of us are in the same groups, we also found it interesting that a lot of us have changed types since previous goes at the test, or rest on the 40-60% fence between types. So, maybe it’s fluid and we shouldn’t take these as gospel. Or maybe it’s gospel and we should only partner with others from our groups or those we ‘match’ with (see below). Either way, it’ll be interesting to look back at this in our pairs at portfolio day.
