Calendars and Personality Type

This is a very interesting article by Janet Barclay that talks about the 4 different Meyers-Briggs personality types and how they use calendars and manage their time. A very inciteful article that gives very good insight into how you should use your calendars and manage your time based on your personality. If you aren’t successful with managing your time, then you should read this article as it should give you a lot of insight into why time management isn’t working for you.

I recently conducted a survey to look at the relationship between an individual’s personality type and his or her organizing and time management style, and noticed that the majority of participants said they have a calendar system that works for them. As there are so many time management systems available, both paper-based and electronic, I thought it would be interesting to find out which calendar systems are most popular with each personality type, and asked my ezine subscribers and visitors to my website to describe their time management system, what they like and dislike about it, and their personality type according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®). The MBTI measures your preferences in four areas: The source of your energy (Introversion / Extraversion) Taking in information (Sensing / INtuition) Decision-making (Thinking / Feeling) Dealing with the outer world (Judging / Perceiving) Because the Judging / Perceiving preference pertains to the way you deal with the outer world, it has the greatest influence on the way you manage time and space, however, the other preferences also come into play, as described in earlier articles. Your preferences in the four areas listed above combine to form one of 16 different personality types. This article is a summary of the responses I received, according to the participants’ stated personality type. Where specific time management products were named, this information has been included.
