Psychological I At the beginning of any new venture, it should do an inventory of ourselves so t hat, at a later date, we can assess the

progress achieved. In this study we must become aware of how we perceive the world. Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiat rist, believed that all we have adopted a dominant orientation on the experience - that is, each perceives the world in their particular way. He identified how we react to environmental awareness in thinking, intuition, feeling or sensation , such diagramming functions, according to named, as follows: THOUGHT SENSATION INTUITION FEELING Although thinking is situated on top of the diagram or by this means it is bette r than any of the other functions, but only one of four equally valid psychologi cal adaptations. Of course, we employ all these functions in one moment or anoth er, often being difficult to determine which one is controlling our reactions to a stimulus. Nevertheless, a particular type has greater control and is assisted by a secondary or auxiliary function, adjacent to it on the diagram. The attitu dinal profile that follows is intended to help you identify your dominant type. The situations described were generalized to the fullest in order to be applied to people of different tastes and basic environment around the world. Moreover, they are fundamentally simple and ask that you not include any complicated facto rs that may influence it in the replies. Naturally, you can imagine circumstance s more plausible or best solutions, but these do not indicate, perhaps, as it is oriented at present. No response is considered right or wrong. Not absolute thr ill here is an answer as valid as another. They do not reflect their moral stand ards, the way we feel about other people, much less appoint pulls personal lauda tory or flawed. The purpose of each is just to isolate the specific way we see t he world around us, and he reacted. In many cases there is no exact differences between the choices, although such d ifferences exist, we ask you to choose the answer that you would be more appropr iate in a given situation. Try to avoid extraneous considerations such as whethe r the individual involved could help or hurt your career, how important is it re ally in his or her present or future or how the relationship with the person aff ect his decision. In short, be as objective as possible. After choosing an answe r, write the letter identificatory in the blank space exists at the end of the P rofile or any piece of paper that can be stored for a check before a new test at the conclusion of this course of study.

For example, you might have marked six points from five in Sensation and Sentiment. If the total is higher in the first column, you are an individual-oriented thinking. This me ans that perceives and interprets their world primarily through the intellect, drawing conclusions that logic. You rely on your thought process to help you adapt to the world. Thinking tells you that there is, helpin g him to understand the world through his other senses. In short it helps to int erpret the experience. You care about the past but, unlike the individual-orient ed sense, his is an historic past, affecting everyone, first and foremost, rathe r than something personal. You rely heavily on facts accumulated from the past a nd to plan for the future, act on a reasoned and logical direction. Fears allow

emotions to him "come to mind" and that it can be harmful. Since you value the t hought, is sometimes accused of being cold and "insensitive", but this is becaus e his psychological structure is guided by thought, which is the opposite of fee ling, their function repressed. The types or intellectual thinking will, as its auxiliary or secondary function, sensation or intuition. If you have a strong se condary type of sensation (a score of six points in five out of Thought and Feel ing, for example), your thoughts are based on direct experience, making it what is called an empirical thinker. If you tend to Intuit, this being his strongest secondary function will be a speculative thinker. Of course, most of us is not t he type "pure" and we must analyze the influence of our secondary function to th e extent that it differs from dominant. If your highest total of points with res pect to the second column, this indicates that you react to the world intuitivel y. Can you feel the experience, less through the senses, through which knowledge is inherent, and can disrupt themselves before the real facts. Their decisions are based on hunches, flashes of vision within himself and his immediate awarene ss of relationships. It is concerned primarily with the future, what is to happe n it seems more real than what happened in the past or now. If your secondary fu nction is thinking, you're the one who "think speculatively," Feeling and if you act based on an intuitive feeling. Since the function is suppressed feeling, th ose who are targeted for Feel may consider it an impractical person,€unrealisti c and frivolous, though this is not the case. As it happens, only you perceive t he world differently. If your scores were higher in the third column, you are a person feeling oriented, accustomed to judge the experience as pleasant or unple asant, positive or negative. Prefers the strongest emotions that will stay in me mory, even though unpleasant, neglecting the most vulnerable. You have a persona l stake in this and tends to intensify a situation so that others are happier or more satisfied with the outcome of their efforts. Nevertheless, you value the e motional past, because it helps in the interpretation of these experiences, view ed in light of the above. If your secondary function is intuition, this indicate s that feels intuitively, although sentiment combine with sensory stimuli, where the secondary function is sensation. Thought is suppressed and the function you do not like to surrender to what is called "logical thinking". This does not in dicate that is incapable of thinking that is less valued than an "intellectual" but that per ceives the world differently than thinkers. If you reached the highest total of points in the fourth column, this is a person-oriented feeling. You interpret th e world through the senses, to perceive things as they are. Know reality, feels this in depth and is oriented towards action. Since it has a highly developed se nse of what is "real," interprets situations as they are, not as have been or wi ll be. Randomness and chance are not in your way of thinking, because the here a nd now mean everything. If your secondary function is feeling, this means that i nterprets their experiences through sensory feeling. Thought is the secondary fu nction is strong, you employ your senses in connection with the thought. Its fun ction is suppressed and Intuit may have difficulty - but that other types - into believing that some of the issues discussed here are as likely as possible. Tho se who achieved a greater number of points in the last column, on the other hand , will find it easier subsequent chapters, since they are already treading the p ath to achievement. They should be commended even the few brands that have manag ed in the column centered, as the responses indicate that sometimes are able to realize a better life and system entirely. In both cases, we insist with voc6e t o continue reading so that it can use its own powers with a maximum advantage. I f you did not score any point in the column-centric, not discouraged. Have much time to move ahead if you wish. As explained, few of us are the kinds of "pure", targeted exclusively for Thought, Intuition, feeling or sensation, so we tend t o place ourselves somewhere between the other two. Of course, every individual u ses the four functions (Thinking, Intuition, Feeling and Feel), but only one is dominant, with an adjacent (usually) help. This means that we will react the sam e way, despite the change of circumstances, so do not react as a thinker in a si tuation such as a type and in another sense, unless we are psychologically advan

ced. Each and every one of these guidelines is correct. All are equally valid, a nd identifying your personal brand, you will find it easier to understand those who are their "opposites" - the way they think and react differently from yours. Much more will be said about the various functions in the final chapters of thi s work. For now, you should save your scores in a safe place so as to be able to compare results when submitting to the test later.
