Design Study Night Online: Wait – Don’t Trash That “What’s Your Type” Quiz!

🎨 Wait – Don’t Trash That “What’s Your Type” Quiz!

At this workshop, we’ll find out who you are according to a few different “what’s your type” systems. But instead of using our critical minds to tear them apart, we’ll see what we can use them for. Sure, most of them don’t have scientific validity. But does that mean they have no value? Can knowing your type somehow help you – even if the type itself misses the mark? A few things we’ll dig into:

How might knowing your “type” influence how you perceive your strengths/challenges?

How might it affect your awareness of them in your daily life?

And, we’ll learn how knowing your type, even if it’s wrong, could change your behavior and performance in a positive way.

Join us in seeing what this is (or you are) all about!
