After chatting with Lou tonight I was inspired to go search for useful stuff on the web which deals with Myers-Briggs typology and prayer preferences.

This is a lovely site with practical examples of how different people do prayer.

Sometimes MBTI can be as refreshing (and unnerving) as looking in a mirror - at other times it can be constricting and unhelpful. Personally I find my INFJ (or possibly P) to fit pretty well and to help me realize why life is so frustrating... (Though there can be a bit of fruit-cakery as here!)

For a while we have been talking in the Chaplaincy about offering a Myers-Briggs and prayer workshop. Maybe there would be enough interest to put one on, or do one in collaboration....?

MBTI is good as long as you don't take it too seriously. Quite like the idea of being a Champion!
