As I write this, it is the last week of November, and one of the things I’m thankful for is my friendship and association with Rita Murray. She and I came into OKA as Associates at about the same time about twenty years ago. We have written a book together (Generations: Bridging the Gap with Type), trained together, and stayed in each other’s orbit—both teaching and learning from the other along the way.
As an active Type trainer in a very Judger-centric work world, I’m always trying to explain, defend and even legitimize Perceiving as a preference. Well, once again, Rita has helped me with a wonderful—sharp, yet gentle—defense of the Perceivers’ learning style and workplace contributions. As an ESFJ, Rita’s endorsement of P is that much more powerful. Read more about learning styles and preferences for judging and perceiving here: Clock and Calendar Only–At What Cost?
Thanks Rita, for another great thought and lesson.
