I am now on a weekend course on Myers-Briggs at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham, England. There are nine participants on the course, seven women and two men. Our types are as follows: INFP=3; ISTJ=2; INFJ=1; INTJ=1; ENTP=2.

To be expected, I think. One of the main facets of introversion is, I would say, a propensity towards introspection, and the MBTI is literally made for aiding introspection. Interesting that there are two ISTJs and no INTPs on your course though, if the frequency of types I see on the various MBTI forums are anything to go by I would have expected it to be more the other way around.

The title of the course is Myers-Briggs and the Life of the Meeting. It was about relating MBTI types to Quaker meetings.

Further to my previous post here is the description of the course in the Woodbrooke courses brochure:
Quote:
Why do some people seem to focus on a problem or situation differently from ourselves? The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can be a useful tool for turning conflict into the riches of wider understanding. This course will be particularly suitable for those with responsibility for oversight.

On Saturday evening, course participants watched a DVD of Sense and Sensibility with the intention of typing the characters. From what I remember the general consensus was that Elinor Dashwood was INTJ, Marianne Dashwood was ENFP, and Edward Ferrers was INFP.

I don't know anybody who has been on a Myers Briggs course - this sounds very interesting.

What were your conclusions about the course woodpeace - did you enjoy it? Did you feel you got anything out of it, and if so what? Tell us more 8)

Pretty interesting....I'd like to hear more also, if you don't mind. I've always wanted to attend some kind of "MBTI convention".
I agree the introspection factor may be why Is are attracted to MBTI, but the highest correlation seems to be N types. I think both may be explained by a propensity to feel "different" in cultures that are rather "ESxx".
