History of MBTI
Mother & daughter team in1962
1. long form (126 questions)
2. short form (~70 questions)
Purpose of MBTI
Identifying natural tendencies in 4 areas:
1. How we communicate (E/I)
2. How we perceive information (S/N)
3. How we make decisions based on the information we perceived (T/F)
4. How we control or adapt (J/P)
Allowing us to understand ourselves & to read people more accurately
What is the MBTI?
Each of us possess all 8 traits
Amount of possession of the 8 traits combines to provide us with our preferred type
Not one type is better than another
Problems arise when preferences are strong & create imbalances... Limit ability to judge & perceive
Extrovert v. Introvert
Basis of how we communicate
Preference largely influences how we control (J/P)
Primary focus is on external world & activities
Like people, action, & activities
When E talks to I, E needs to make sure if E is just thinking loud or making plan for real.
Primarily focused inward on ideas & concepts
Like privacy, introspection, & ideas
Doesn't mean they cannot socialize
For I athlete, it is better to say "I will palpate here." before touching. For gaining feedback, "think about it and let me know how you feel tomorrow. Also better to email before if there is anything to say... I needs reflective time and does not like "think & answer quick."
: How would you approach an extroverted/introverted women's basketball player to discuss her rehabilitation process?
A: For E athlete: Schedule in busy time (she like to be people around.). Need rehab partner. Listen and gain feedback. Need varieties for rehab menu.
For I athlete: Make home-assignment/rehab exercise (she likes being reflective.). Give plenty of time. Let her know busy time in ATR/rehab room (she will anoid to show up in that time range.). Ask "where is pain and frustration now?"
Sensor vs. Intuitor
Prefer real information that is verified by 5 senses
Focus on present
Focus on what is said
Interpret information by what is experienced
Especially for SJ trait, athlete likes how it worked before and hates to change in rehab. Athlete tends to say "let's continue how we did last time." Care about how to call, and good at acute memory. Good at how to get there with a goal. Poor for connecting information. MD have S trait more than DO do.
Prefer the abstract
Focus on future
Focus on what is meant
Interpret information according to its possibility & implications
For N athlete, athlete loves to be challenged. Good at goal setting. Overlooked possiblity and individual. DO usually have N trait since need to see kinetic chain vs. MD tend to see its injury/illness itself.
: How do you communicate S/N dominant coach & how do you let him/her understand the injury/rehab process?
A: For S dominant coach: Use data/ statistic. Talk now to future. Use your previous experience (coach tends to say "when I had that injury...brah brah." ). Use scale/number.
For N dominant coach: Use theory (not data but possibility.). Talk future plans as well as present. Talk about its improvement/plan.
