How do you know if someone is a Judging or Perceiving type?
In this lesson, I will show you the difference between Judging and Perceiving.
Judging types value goal-oriented, and prefer long-term activities. They like to come up with a plan or method to solve a problem. They feel stressed if momentary changes and new environments force them to think outside the box. They dislike distraction.
Perceiving types value free-flow, spontaneous, and short-term action. They like to think about current tasks and to determine the best course of action in the situation. They become tense if they have to fit themselves to a deadline, structure, or established rule-book. They dislike being controlled.
Tense Perceiving types and Stressed Judging Types
Perceiving types can learn to act like Judging types and can demonstrate high Conscientiousness, but will experience this as stressful. Judging types will find it stressful to keep an open and flexible mind, but can still do it. Judging types feel more motivated the longer they work on an activity without any distractions or changes. So notice that constant interruptions may negatively impact your motivation and energy.
Perceiving types feel less motivated the more long-term an activity, so try to break down longer tasks into many smaller, and more open tasks, to maximize your motivation!
