A Truity Q&A: Behavioral Scientist & Bestselling author Paul D. Tieger on how your type can be the key to managing stress in uncertain times

In a time of pandemic and global uncertainty, how one deals with stress is as relevant a topic as ever. And as we know, your unique Myers-Briggs personality type can play a critical role in how you manage and process stress and anxiety. 

How to Work With ‘Get it Right’ People

If your job requires teamwork or supervision, you’ll inevitably be forced to deal with at least one ‘get-it-right’ personality. These people tend to be technically competent, well researched, and highly professional, which makes them hugely valuable in the workplace.

Things I Learned from my ESFJ Mother

Clinically Reviewed by Steven Melendy, PsyD. on October 13, 2020

It shames me to say this but: I was never in awe of my mother. When I was a child, she embarrassed me. I despaired at her lack of ambition, her loyal commitment to soulless, exploitative jobs that she was far too good for, her uncomplaining acceptance of her lot in life. We lived a life of duty and routines. There were no expectations of achievement; it was almost unthinkable for me to aspire to go to university, the first in my family to achieve this goal. My notions of what I would do with my life were so brutally segregated from hers, it was like being raised by wolves.

10 Career Struggles Only INTJs Will Understand

Clinically Reviewed by Steven Melendy, PsyD. on August 26, 2020

INTJs have a mixed experience in the workplace. All the data we’ve collected suggests that they outrank most other personality types – and certainly the other introverted types – salary-wise, and they also perform well in the category of very high earners making over $150,000 USD a year. If we accept salary as a proxy for success, then INTJs appear to be doing well for themselves.

Everyone knows an ENTJ at work. They’re the ones who ooze competence and authority.

They’re the last people you would expect to be afraid – which is one of the reasons why they’re so successful in the workplace.

Regardless of personality type, we all have a sixth sense that makes us do, feel or say something that we already know. It might be a physical sensation, like sweaty hands or a knot in the stomach that alerts us to some kind of danger.
