This is an opportunity for leaders to understand how mental health impacts their employees, and to use communication to reduce the stigma of mental illness and increase access to resources.Previous episodes cited in this podcast include:* Anxiety and Personality during COVID-19:https://pos.li/2j8dgf* MBTI and Depression:https://pos.li/2j8dh1Check out EQ at Work - our new emotional intelligence podcasthttps://eqatwork.net

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?

Feelings are Valid

Feelings are Valid

2020-06-0109:24

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.------------------Myers-Briggs Question Corner is the weekly MBTI career podcast brought to you by DC Metro Career Counselor Edythe Richards.Edythe is a Myers-Biggs Master Practitioner and founder of A Top Career - a web site which specializes in helping people back into work.Find out more at www.atopcareer.comOur Spreaker Podcastshttps://www.spreaker.com/show/the-journey-forwardhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-question-cornerhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-mid-life-career-changers
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.

Introverted types may feel these privacy challenges more acutely. Whether you’re a regular Zoom participant or host, this episode will provide tips for keeping everyone engaged.------------------Myers-Briggs Question Corner is the weekly MBTI career podcast brought to you by DC Metro Career Counselor Edythe Richards.Edythe is a Myers-Biggs Master Practitioner and founder of A Top Career - a web site which specializes in helping people back into work.Find out more at www.atopcareer.comOur Spreaker Podcastshttps://www.spreaker.com/show/the-journey-forwardhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-question-cornerhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-mid-life-career-changers

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 assessment, did a study in 2018 on precisely this topic.------------------Myers-Briggs Question Corner is the weekly MBTI career podcast brought to you by DC Metro Career Counselor Edythe Richards.Edythe is a Myers-Biggs Master Practitioner and founder of A Top Career - a web site which specializes in helping people back into work.Find out more at www.atopcareer.comOur Spreaker Podcastshttps://www.spreaker.com/show/the-journey-forwardhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-question-cornerhttps://www.spreaker.com/show/myers-briggs-mid-life-career-changers

This cannot happen without awareness of our own strengths and blind spots.
