    Developing Yourself Using MBTI

    If enneagram advice isn't enough for you or you haven't figured out your enneagram type, you can still work on your personal development using these MBTI tips. Try to incorporate one into your life each week, and you may very well find yourself becoming a more well-rounded individual.

    Developmental Tips for the Compassionate Assimilator (ISFJ)
    • Although you prefer to reflect carefully before acting, at times try taking a calculated risk and “jump in”. This can help you capitalize on unfamiliar or unexpected opportunities.
    • When making a decision, logically analyze the pros and cons of your options.
    • Make trade-offs between taking a personal, immediate approach to matters and being more objective and efficient in what you do.
    • Think about what might be happening in 3-5 years and make a long-range plan. Be willing to revisit and change your plan.
    • Challenge yourself to look for new ways of doing familiar tasks.

    • Although you prefer to reflect carefully before acting, at times try taking a calculated risk and “jump in”. This can help you capitalize on unfamiliar or unexpected opportunities.
    • When completing a task observe how people are reacting and interacting. Note how they connect with others and adjust your approach to match.
    • When making a decision that affects people who are important to you, ask them to share their opinions and thoughts. Add their personal responses and preferences into your decision-making criteria.

    Developmental Tips for the Compassionate Visionary (INFJ)
    • Accept and appreciate the process of logical analysis. Create a system for evaluating situations and ideas that includes logical pros and cons.
    • When preparing to share your thoughts, add logical points and reasons for implementing your ideas.
    • As you are building ideas and coming up with a vision of ‘what could be’, ask for constructive feedback early in the process. This will help you see the situation right away from multiple perspectives. If you get feedback later, you may find it frustrating to re-think your well-defined plan.
    • Link your ideas to realities by adding in a series of concrete, practical implementation steps.
    • Stop to enjoy the moment without becoming lost in your thoughts. Take a photo, draw a picture, write a descriptive passage or do some other activity that keeps you anchored in the moment.

    • When coming up with a solution to a situation consider potential implementation problems and challenges. Work on following through and putting solutions into action.
    • Once you have completed a logical evaluation of an idea or situation take time to also consider who is involved in the situation and observe how the situation is affecting them personally.
    • Notice and offer appreciation when others do something to help you.
    • Learn to develop rapport with others by figuring out their preferences. Use small talk and share some personal information to build relationships when it is appropriate.

    lol so the advice for all intuitive types is to stop and ask themselves: "what do I actually have at hand?"

    it's good advice, witnessing how intuitives can get themselves into all sorts of troubles only because they don't pay attention to the actual state of things

    Some of these are pretty good--I guess what all types need is a little less of the dominant function and a little more of the inferior (when used appropriately).
