    I agree.

    Once I did a one-hour workshop with a dozen high school kids.
    They all thought they were ESFPs.
    Epic fail.
    My sister had a similar experience in a middle school.

    There has got to be a trick to it!

    I think the one-on-one approach is the best, for me at least, and perhaps that is because I have not been trained.

    The trick is having more time than that and making it experiential. It's easy to keep their interest for 4-6 hours because it's all about them. But it has to be hands-on, "Wow, we really are different, naturally, and every type is good" stuff..." It's a blast to do.

    Oh, and 25 works better than 12--50 even, if you have 4-5 adults in the room, because they can hide a bit more and there's usually more type diversity (unless you work with a 12th grade art class or AP physics class...)
