Just thought it's about time for a quick heads-up, so here's where we are so far: Top 3 reported types are INTP (8), ENTJ (4), ENTP; ENTJ; ENFP; INFP (4 each) - others: ENFJ, ISTJ, ESTJ, INTJ, ESTP, ESFP
In other words, majority Theorist temperament, followed by Catalyst, then Stabilizer, and only three Improvisers. Majority Behind-the-Scenes Interaction Style, followed by In Charge, then Get-Things-Going, then Chart-the-Course.*
Top 3 reported home-cultures are USA (8), UK (8), and Germany (5) - others: France, Netherlands, Australia, Romania, Russia, Poland, Singapore, Israel, Peru, Spain, Ukraine
29 female, 11 male participants - apparently a couple people didn't like to disclose their sex.
17 baby-boomers, 16 Gen X
Top 3 reported challenges are Everyday stuff, e.g. groceries (18), can't speak the language very well (16), finding it hard to make friends (13)
What does it all mean, and how does it all fit together? The interviews will bring so much more to light! THANK YOU to everyone who has participated so far, you are awesome!!! Most of you have given me permission to contact you via email, rest assured I will do so in the summer.
I was fortunate enough to meet and spend some time with Lieve and Gudula from the European Association of Psychological Type during Dr. Berens' program, and they've been very helpful and supportive of my research plans. I'm so excited to hopefully reach more European participants in the months to come.
If you're in the area, why not join the EAPT Conference in Paris this year? More info here: http://www.eapt.org/
We're still missing input from lots of countries and lots of types, namely INFJ, ISFJ, ESFJ, ISTP, and ISFP, so please continue to share this link with your friends and colleagues. Thanks again!
*Since I just went through the Berens CORE(r) Method certification program, look for more articles about how the Interaction Styles play out in our social styles and behavior. ;-)
