Reaches Out To Students and Educators This Year
If you’re a teacher, a student, a coach, a counselor, a trainer,
or a parent, this issue is for you.The RTP chapter of APT is making a concerted effort to
reach out to students and educators this year. Dr. Lise Patton
will show educators how to use their type preferences to take
their courses online in “Online Education.”Dr. Carol Shumate and Ann Loomis will offer “Type and
Teaching: Show, Don’t Tell,” a preview of an education
symposium to be given at the APT International Conference together
with the co-founders of the Lighthouse Schools movement, Len
Tallevi and Elizabeth Murphy.Lighthouse Schools are schools that use the MBTI in
teaching, counseling, administration, and curriculum development.And in fall, Dr. Elizabeth Murphy will bring her expertise
to the Triangle in a workshop co-sponsored with the new Early
Childhood Development Division of Peace College.Dr. Murphy pioneered the use of the MBTI in elementary
schools with the creation of the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator
for Children (MMTIC).Please
share this issue with teachers and educators you know.It could make a difference.

online has become a part of the culture of education and training.Both the number of online courses and the number of online
students have experienced a steady increase since 1994.Many instructors now face the challenge of moving their
courses to an online environment.While several factors impact this transition, this workshop
focuses on one key element, the instructor.Whereas instructional objectives, teaching styles, and
learner preferences are among the core factors influencing
effective teaching, the element that instructors have most control
over is their own approach to instruction.This workshop uses the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
as a framework for describing instructional strategies and how to
select them based on an instructor's MBTI preferences.An instrument for determining your instructional type,
suggestions for appropriate instructional strategies, and links to
resources are included in this workshop.

consultation with other experts, in the next newsletter. Be sure to
indicate your type and the type of the person(s) involved (if knows).
I am in business with an ENTP who is extremely slow in paying his
share of the bills. He's a wonderful guy in some ways, has a lot of
people skills, but he's very manipulative, and he has a rebellious
streak. At the partners' meetings, he gives lip service to
decisions to make certain hires that involve upfront payments, but
then he refuses to pay his share. Lately, he has begun to simply
refuse to cough up the money. Now the really weird thing is,
he has offered to cover one of the other partners' share when she
had a hysterical meltdown at the meeting about her finances. He
moved in to rescue her, but he didn't mention that I have been
covering HIS share. This has me really steamed.
his money, but we are at wits' end as to how to get it without
triggering his automatic rebel stance.
This may not be
a Type issue.It sounds
as if this person is passive-aggressive (PA) and controls the rest
of you by being such.His
rescuing of the “damsel in distress” may be indicative of his
need to be needed. You say you need his money and he knows that,
but if that is all you need from him he may be angry that he’s
only included because of his wealth.
There are three
ways to deal with PA:
it—the PA person will get angry because you are not falling
into his trap.
it—this does not always work because the PA person may just
deny his/her actions and feelings.
yourself but know you are doing it.What if you all chose at the next meeting to complain
about your individual finances and have a team hysterical
NT’s do strive for competency, but they may fear they are
incompetent. This person may be acting out to keep you from seeing
may not be incompetent but if he fears he is, he will create
diversionary tactics to keep you from discovering it.
I have some folks
who believe their MBTI preferences have changed from
previous periods. I have asked them to think about the questions
from a work and personal perspective. Do people change or are
they always the same? I was trained that Jung would say the
preferences are hard-wired, but I can see where life events
influence your profile and can push someone to slightly different
that Jung was right—that we are hardwired for type.That does not mean we cannot explore and use the other
functions and attitudes which often happen in our later years. Even
life changing events do not change our personality. They may change
our orientation and what we consider to be important, but we are
still the same person we were.For example, the Apostle Paul was converted on the road to Damascus and became the most powerful
and important person only second to Jesus in Christianity.Before his conversion, Paul was a dogmatic, unyielding,
intellectual Pharisee who upheld the letter of the law.After his conversion he was a dogmatic, unyielding,
intellectual Christian who demanded from others total obedience to
personality did not change. What changed was his orientation and
the object of his devotion.
heard Millard Fuller, the founder of Habitat for Humanity, tell of
how he started this great ministry.He told us how hard he was working in Corporate American and
how detrimental it was to his family and to his health. But Habitat
gave new life to him and his family.What impressed me was that this man was working no less for
Habitat than he worked for Corporate America.He was the same hard-driving, committed executive. The only
difference was that now he had meaning in life.I mentioned this to a colleague who is a personal friend of
Fuller’s and he confirmed my impression.
I recently sent an annual report on our
chapter to APT national, reporting on our membership, the
programs we’ve sponsored, the names of our board
members, and our finances. Writing the report, I felt both
pride and awe at what we as a chapter have accomplished,
as well as appreciation for all the volunteer hours that
your board has put in to make such events possible.

Our most exciting upcoming event is the
fall lecture and workshop with renowned type expert, Elizabeth
Murphy, the developer of the MMTIC, the Murphy-Meisgeier
Type Indicator for Children.Since we are financially solvent, the board has
agreed to foot the bill for this special program, while
making sure to keep it widely accessible to educators and
Daley has done a great job in securing Elizabeth as a speaker, co-sponsored by PeaceCollege, to celebrate the launch of their early childhood education
May, we have two other education-related programs, one on learning styles in online education,
and another on the latest brain research on learning and how
it relates to type.Both
of these workshops, the “Online Instruction” workshop
and the “Type and Teaching” workshop should be a great
aid to educators at any level.The second of these is a preview of a symposium to be
given at the APT International Conference — specially
tailored to a Triangle audience. I'll be going to the
Conference, to be held in Toronto
in July, along with several other board members.Be sure to get in touch if you're going and we'll
look for each other at the conference.
Our huge success in sponsoring a
qualifying training has led us to consider doing more of
these. Led by renowned author and trainer Roger Pearman, the
training program filled up immediately and had a waiting
evening program at SAS, Roger spoke to a full house of 55
attendees on the connection between EQ (emotional
intelligence) and type. With more and more recent research
showing that EQ is a better predictor of success than other
commonly believed indicators such as IQ or GPA, the topic
could not have been more timely.
In September, we'll have
"Porch Party" where we'll share a potluck and
also key learnings from the conference in Toronto. If you didn't get a chance to go to the conference and would like
to hear from members who did, please come. Anyone who went
is welcome to share an experience with a speaker or a
workshop technique or a new book they've discovered. We
don't have formal presentations. We're very casual, sharing
with each other in what you might call fireside-chat style.
Using our money to help bring such events
and information to you is what we're all about. If there are
any particular speakers or special topics that you'd like to
see programs on, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from

isn't really about business as much as it is about people. And
Dickey Eason tells you a whole lot about people--most of which
you've never heard before. I've spent 45 years in marketing and
have authored 30 books--but virtually all of the ideas that appear
in this book are totally new to me. . . . this book changed my
entire perspective of marketing. As the field of marketing was
changed first by radio, then by television, and then by the
Internet, IMPACTS Marketing will spur another revolution."

Board voted to have the membership year run on the calendar year
as opposed to the fiscal year.It seemed that this would make it easier for members to
remember, as well as making sure that fall programs are in place
well in advance of new board members’ arrival.The change means that the current board must stay on for an
extra half-year, but the board members agreed to do that.
