Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

This week I was away on our quarterly off-site and we spend some time on discussing the composition of our business unit based on our MBTI results (We did take a MBTI survey before going away). This was very interesting and gave us some insight to why the group performs as it does.

I am now studying this subject even closer and I am trying to analyse my relationship with my girlfriend etc. based on this. This is a real powertool.

Now we have to see if we can really reach new goals with the help of this new information.

The Satir Interaction Model

Yesterday I rediscovered a old paper I found at my office a couple of months ago, it mentioned the Satir Interaction Model. "Virginia Satir believed that all levels of human interaction need congruent communication in which intentions align with verbal and non-verbal messages. In Ingredients of an interaction, Virginia Satir distinguishes several states of internal processing in any significant interaction."

Now I have read about it some more on the Internet and I have decided that it is finally time to buy one of her books (which also covers the Satir Change Model)

Satir, Virginia, John Banmen, Jane Gerber, and Maria Gomori. The Satir Model, Family Therapy and Beyond. Palo Alto CA: Science and Behavior Books, 1991. ISBN: 8314-0078-1.
