    Default Post Thoughts and Observations About People Without the Use of Our Usual Jargon

    A lot of people say that MBTI and Enneagram have "infected" their minds to the point that they aren't able to think about people without using the ideas from these systems.

    So here is a chance to practice describing people without the use of the jargon from any system...no use of Temperaments, Interaction Styles, Cognitive Processes, Enneatypes, Holland Codes, Belbin Types, or any such system. Try to avoid creating jargon of you own as well..."popped collar people", "drama bubbles", etc.

    I'll try first:
    At my friend's daughter's birthday party, when the party finished, I noticed there were:
    1) people who helped clean-up
    2) people who seemed to want to help but didn't know what to do
    3) people who just left
    and 4) people who just continued chatting with each other.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I find it very curious that you described four different kinds of people

    Hm.

    In an average college class I notice:
    -People who sit and take notes
    -People who sit, pay attention, but don't take notes
    -People who sit, and don't pay attention

    Today when I went to pick up my dinner, I met a well groomed, pretty cashier who paid obvious attention to how she'd applied her makeup before coming to work tonight.

    This forum:

    People who resist being categorized.
    People who argue for the sake of arguing.
    People who have a sincere interest in learning everything there is to know about typology.
    People who are interested in getting to know others from various walks of life.
    People who enjoy talking about themselves.
    People who thrive on attention.

    What about the people who sit, in their dorm rooms during class?
