Replying to LO7573 --

"Control freaks" is most likely too strong a term for all Judgement
preference managers - and remember, we are talking about preferences not
abilities. I was using someone elses' term from an earlier post, Rol.

Rol makes some good points about working with J pref. managers. As the
sole internal consultant with an organization of 40 dept. directors and
over 4000+ employees I have done close to 500+ MBTI's, many with the
leadership. Nearly all have a SJ preference, and have a very high need to
closure, control and knowing what is coming, and keeping the status quo.
Preserving what is is important. The window of opportunity for change is
relatively small compared to other types, and I agree with Rol when he
says you need to have a plan of how you are going to do it, check with
them first, and keep them informed.

The Center for Psychological Type in Gainesville FL has much information
on type and leadership. 1-800-777-CAPT is their number. I am one of the
local chapter president's of the Association for Pschological Type and
would be glad to have folks in the Tampa area at our monthly meetings.
Rol, if the winter gets too bad this next one.... c'mon down!!
