Gift Giving…Based on Personality Type

The folks over at CPP, Inc. (the official publisher of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) just released these handy buyers guides for giving gifts based on MBTI Type profiles. If you know or can typewatch those in your life, the advice below might come in handy. The gift suggestions are based on the core function pairs (the two middle letters in your Type), often referred to as the “heart of type” because they reflect the core of who we are.

Before you enjoy these gift guides in all their glory, however, it might be helpful to get a quick refresher on the core function pairs:

NT (Intuitive/Thinking): Prefer to take in information in conceptual, abstract, big-picture ways. Concerned with the why and the future. Prefer to make decisions using impersonal logic and analysis. Like to explore the possibilities and meaning.

NF (Intuitive/Feeling): Prefer to take in information in conceptual, abstract, big-picture ways. Concerned with the why and the future. Prefer to make decisions by using their values and beliefs. Will often focus on harmony and relationships.

ST (Sensing/Thinking): Prefer to take in information using their five senses. As a result they are practical, realistic, specific, and literal. Prefer to make decisions using impersonal logic and analysis. Want to focus on real-time problems and tasks.

SF (Sensing/Feeling): Prefer to take in information using their five senses. As a result they are practical, realistic, specific, and literal. Prefer to make decisions by using their values and beliefs. Naturally attentive to personal details.

So with that in mind, enjoy this set of personality gift-giving guides.  You can click on each image to view a larger version.  Happy gift hunting, everyone. 🙂

She’s only been with the team for 3 months but everyone in the office has noticed.  Patients notice too. Some whisper about it in passing. Others make passive-aggressive comments out loud. The new girl doesn’t seem to notice. In fact, she seems completely oblivious to the issue.  What do you do?
