BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Personalities
Posted by: meribelle, Thursday, September 20, 2007, 11:43pm
I got a newsletter a few months ago about our personalities being similar because of our blood type.  I read the characteristics of a B person to my B friend and she was amazed at how it described her correctly.  

What do we think of this part of the BTD?

I think even here Peter is right in his statements...but then people only see themselves often not that objectively as others do; and then....if you take the enneagram for comparisons, you will learn that we are the whole enneagram and only our outgoing showed face is the one we prefer to use daily ;) ;D
Compare Risos' enneagram & Keirsey's books *please understand me* and go also for Briggs-Myers *gift differing* here you will learn how types will match togethe and what will happen when underdeveloped :o :o :o ....or even onto their *desintegrative* ways.......:-/ very very exciting ;D :D
and soooo true :-/.....(clap)(dance)(clap)(smarty)(think)(sunny)

btw...we do have a wunneful astrologuer on this board ;)...I think that such readings are really worth to be heared :D :D (smarty)(sunny) this man has loads of experiences and
yep.....can't deny......;) his name is Robet :D......

I learned a lot about myself when I took the MBTI and found out that my preferences were INFP.   It would be very interesting to do further studies on the correlation of blood type and personality type.

Okay..... I took the personality test and I am ISFJ.  Don't know if it is really how I am or not.  Lots of things fit me in both columns.

I am INFP and an A, RHTeacher, Songstress and myself must have personality similarities despite our different bloodtypes. Would be interesting to find the distribution of the different 'personality types' among the different blood types.

What is Riso's enneagram?  I guess I am an ISFJ more or less.  It is not a bad thing to be.  Why do some of you have a slanted line and another letter in front of yours?

Here is the mother of all testing boards.  Take the tests then do a google search on the actual test.

ther's no better or worse psyche pattern, everybody of us do have our own ::) affairs with it ;)....
but what is awesome is to get to know that society is mostly built up on sp&sj matching styles (about 95% if I remember well) and all the rest in NF&NT-styles....
it just shows up our prefered role and face and daily form we are showing and using to and with others :D...... but then we should go for integration of the rest of the others....means mankind is 4-polar.....:o

When I do MBTI seminars for corporations, I like to say the world needs all types.  Everyone is a unique "type" because the scoring is on a continuum.

I am a reserved, tough-minded/tenderhearted, ENTJ.  The out of pattern reserved extravert vs the out of pattern toughminded - tenderhearted thinker.  

A business for instance needs ESTJ's ISTJ's to execute ideas and run processes, it needs ISFJ's ESFJ's to create a sense of community and take care of the customers, EN's and IN's are needed to see what is coming in the future and prepare for it and drive processes clean.  ISTP's ESTP's are needed to put out fires and react to the present.  (This is just a small why we are all needed)....

Never think one is type is better than the others.  We all bring our unique talents and experiences to the world.

Meribelle:

Look at the link I posted and then take the Jung Typology, the 144 question test is very reliable and valid.

what about the fp's Jean? what can they do in the corporation? (I'm entp)
Posted by: jeanb, Saturday, September 22, 2007, 8:15pm; Reply: 23
FP's are generally in the HR department, design, business development, org development.  

ENTP's (my son and me with no sleep) are generally the entrepreneurs, don't last long in big corporations unless they are running them (think Jobs of Apple or Walt Disney).  In corporate life are generally the designers, big dog sales and business development.  Also can be plate spinners consultants, dropped in to rescue companies, change artists etc.

Meribel:

Don't think about the answers, just go in and quickly (first thing that comes to mind) complete the questions, should only take around 15 minutes.

Jean, what about INTJ's - where do they fit in?  ??)
Posted by: gulfcoastguy, Sunday, September 23, 2007, 1:00am; Reply: 26
I'd be interested in hearing what they say also since I'm an INTJ. From what I remember reading we work well independently, are good at spotting patterns or trends, are future orientated, can think of multiple ways of doing things and get bored with or object to doing things the "approved" way, are relatively rare,  and are not really "people" persons.

intj: the most intellectual of all ;D ;D.....looking always for opportunities to strength their abilities :D
looking alsmost to work with their intuition.....but sometimes dang....a bit more infos before going for an aim will be fine as well....all introverts are doing the oposite from their endings: remember this is Briggs-Myers who wrote this, so my dear gcg, p will be your action then ;) ;D


I am swifting between intp/j....in the last months merely I scored intj as well.....(smarty)(sunny)(whistle)(think)


curieux....intj = 5/6 in the enneagram :D
about 1% of the society.....:o :B :X ;)  ;D(shhh)

In Japan, there are more INTJ CEO's than any other type.  Again, INTJ's are needed for engineering, new ideas, process etc.  I always wonder when people say they cannot be in a public position because they are introverted.

People who are introverted, do extravert and vice versa.  I am an extravert who loves to read, I was at my office by myself yesterday and I got 16 hours of work done in about 8.  We all need to use different sides of our personality throughout the day in order to be a complete human being.

I second really what you have written, Jean.
I taught some private music lessons to a sixteen year boy that believed to follow only his attitudes and desires (he told me his parents told him to trust his brain) . At the end I asked him what could he gain from the lessons, if he did not try what I suggested him with 10 years of study, teaching, performing experience.
If you like to learn and grow, you have to conquer a little bit of the skills more far from your natural abilities, that need to be developed as well. At the end we become a mix of ourselves and the family members, the teachers and the bosses or the coworkers that we admire really.
Everyone needs also some luck as good will in the meetings life presents to us !
For our health BTD and who presented it us, as Dr D that has developed this theory, has been an important meetin and contribution !

I was wondering about that. I happen to be an engineer myself. Strangely enough however after the engineers took the meyer's-briggs only those who tested out as extroverts were chosen for leadership positions. That was also after they told us that the test would not be used for promotional purposes.

Would like to go back to the original subject.

Since taking on BTD I've become interested in the special characteristics of the blood groups personalities.

An acquaintance of mine has been suffering from cardiac problems for many years. It's about a year that I have been nudging him to try and eat for his type, gave him LR4YT book etc. Yet he has no idea what's his blood type. My guess considering his personality has been that he would be AB (probably a nonny), and that's what I have been telling him over and over again. Yesterday I managed somehow, by God's miracle (well, it was immediately after Yom Kippur) to drag him to the blood bank, and to his and the lady-who-did-the-test's (and my...) surprise there it was: AB+.

:D
