Add an exhilarating and meaningful exercise to any training session.

Just My Type is a fun, revealing card game based on Jung’s theory of personality types. By trading and discussing cards and fashioning a hand that best captures their personality style, players learn about 4 personality dimensions: Extraversion/Introversion, Sensing/Intuition, Thinking/Feeling, and Judging/Perceiving. The game gives participants an opportunity to discuss how behaviour preferences impact their relationships with others and how they can work together more effectively and productively.

Learning Outcomes

• Discover one’s personal style

• Understand differences in behaviour preferences

• Identify behaviour strengths and blind spots

• Build acceptance and understanding of those with different behaviour preferences.

Theory

This dynamic card game is based upon concepts developed by Carl Jung. His theory suggests that there are 8 personality preferences that we all use at different times. These 8 preferences are organised into 4 pairs of contrasting dimensions. Each dimension represents a particular way we respond to the world around us. For example, where we focus our attention or how we make decisions is determined by our preferences. Our preferences in each of the four pairs combine into what is called a Personality Type.

How It Works

Cards are divided into four “suits,” representing the 4 personality dimensions. Each card contains an adjective relevant to a particular personality style. For example, a Thinking card might contain the word “logical.” Players are randomly dealt several cards from each suit. Some of the cards may describe them, but many won’t. To fashion a hand that best captures their personality style, players trade and discuss cards. After the game, participant workbooks provide an overview of personality types, short activities, and instructions for generating and discussing an optional team profile.

Uses for Just My Type

Just My Type makes a perfect introduction to any communication, diversity, leadership, or personality-style workshop. The game is also effective as a stand-alone learning event.
