Nature vs. nurture is one of the oldest debates in the field of psychology. Recent studies indicate that personality is more nuanced and complex than previously believed, and personality can – and does – change over time. Is this because that we humans have the collective experiences of our ancestors merged into our genes, or is it because of our environments – our culture, religion, or childhood interactions? Tune in to hear Edyth...

If you’ve been reading job ads, you’ll notice that employers seem to be looking for very specific skillsets. In the interview, the picture changes, and that same employer may be looking for traits not specified in the job listing. Do employers prefer certain personality traits over others?

One of the most frustrating situations we can encounter is someone telling us why we shouldn’t feel a certain way. Your feelings are your feelings. Whether or not they stem from real or perceived beliefs and truths, we all have them, and we can’t escape them. Feelings drive our behavior. Feelings can work for us, or against us. And we can choose not to judge them, but accept them for what they are.

As much as Zoom and other platforms have kept us working and communicating during the Coronavirus pandemic, there are still challenges - much like in the real world. Expectations of showing yourself on screen when your hair is a mess, strategically placing your camera so it doesn’t show your dirty laundry in the corner, and keeping yourself muted when you’re not sure who else is on the call or what the expectation is are just a few...

Edythe and David invite you to tune in and hear how the MBTI may – or may not – factor into our exercise of choice.
Personality is a complicated subject. Although the Myers-Briggs measures personality on a 4 dichotomy scale, what really makes you tick is completely individual. This includes what type of exercise you prefer. Interestingly enough, the Myers-Briggs Company, who are the exclusive publishers of the Myers-Briggs assessme...

Carl Jung theorized that personality is inherent and changes very little over time. Yet we as human beings are constantly changing and adapting, as the recent COVID-19 pandemic has shown. These difficult times have presented us with a choice: we can choose to believe in our shared strength, respond with generosity, and become more resilient in the face of crisis. This cannot happen without awareness of our own strengths and blind s...
