Season 15, Episode 1 Transcript


– Hey, guys. CS Joseph with Doing a new season, season 15, episode one. We’re gonna be talking about interaction styles and temperaments. I decided that actually, because of the audience a subscriber, particular subscriber had reminded me that I had left some things out when it came to the type grid and I did not properly give people the tools necessary to assist them in identifying temperaments and potentially a little bit with the interaction styles as well. So basically this playlist is to be used as a dictionary because I’m gonna be providing a definitions of terms in terms of how to use the type grid appropriately. And at the end of this season, I’m going to be re-releasing the type grid with those additional changes added to it, to help people understand how to use it for more accurate results. On the discord server I’ve also noticed some additional issues because there are a lot of people that are mistyped on the discord server. And a lot of people that don’t know their type, a lot of people trying to help each other figure out their types and it’s been pretty difficult to actually. We’ve had some difficulties here and there within the community, but I’m glad that everyone is trying and definitely learning and figuring it out, which is great. For that I’m very thankful and I’m thankful for the community’s direct involvement, helping each other, figure it out. That being said because of these experiences. And also the fact that I left some things out from the Linda Berens model. I actually purchased the most recent additions of her books just to verify everything one more time. 


And sure enough, I left a few crucial details out. By adding them to the type grade it will make it a lot easier for people to identify their type and it will make it a lot easier to do it. Well, actually I’ll make it faster for one. There’ll be more accurate and kind of give people additional tools to use it. So really happy about that. But in order for that to work properly, I need to do what I haven’t done. And that is talk a little bit deeper about the interaction styles and a little bit deeper about the temperaments basically, and how to properly identify your interaction style and your temperament or that of somebody else. So now I know that in my, “How to Type Yourself and Others” playlist, I provide an overview of the temperaments and an overview of the interaction styles. That’s great and that is definitely relevant and I still recommend everyone read or watch or listen to that playlist for learning how to type yourself and others as a foundation, but it does not go as deep as I had hoped it would have. And that’s because I don’t exactly provide the best definitions of the terms. So I’m going to be providing just a deeper look, a deeper dive. We’re gonna be comparing direct versus informative. We’re gonna be comparing, initiating with responding just so we have a better idea of extroversion and introversion, a little bit more, got to touch on it a bit more, as well as control versus movement. We’re gonna be talking about abstraction versus concrete. We’re also gonna be talking about pragmatism or the pragmatic versus affiliative. So all of those items we will be defining and comparing, contrasting during this particular season. And then we will re-release the type grid after that, and then beyond we’re gonna be diving into the cognitive functions. And we’re gonna be talking about the four sides of the mind. We’re gonna be talking about how they manifest, especially in children. We’re gonna be talking about the different attitudes of the cognitive functions as well. These are some additional seasons for the podcast and here on YouTube for playlists, that will be happening immediately following this particular playlist. And while all of this is happening, I’m still gonna be continuing with the type comparisons. 


I have three more seasons of type comparisons to do, which is gonna be an additional 24 episodes of type comparisons. And at that point I’m basically pretty much done with tight comparisons. Although if you have a specific comparison that you’re asking for, I will do that. No problem. Not exactly I’m too concerned about that. So anyway, so let’s do an overview of interaction styles. Oh, one more thing. I’m still gonna be doing season 13 as well. The current human nurture season or series that we’ve been working on, which is personal sovereignty in the sacred genders. We’re gonna be going a little bit deeper as we move along through that and getting into some practical examples after we finish with “King Warrior Magician Lover”, and extending that a little bit further with some bonus content. That’s great too. And I also forgot to mention we’re doing a giveaway right now around of the giveaway. So around is that all you have to do is be a subscriber. You have to like the lecture and also leave a comment in the comment section. And after that you’re entered in automatically to win a free copy of Dr. Robert Glover’s book “No More Mr. Nice Guy”. Giveaways are gonna be a regular thing now for the channel because we’ve gotten past 5,000 subscribers. So thank you for that. And we’re definitely on the road to 10,000, so let’s keep the growth going and thank you for your support of the channel regardless. And now the actual overview. What are the interaction styles and why are they important? So we’ve already talked about the interaction styles. It’s the Dr. Linda Berens model comes from her book, “Understanding Yourself and Others”, the temperaments 4.0 for example. And interaction styles basically show how human beings interact with each other from a behavioral point of view. It’s all about being behavioral and using behavioral psychology or detecting behaviors to determine someone’s interaction style, which matched four of the 16 types basically. If you’ve got to identify someone’s interaction style, you’ve already eliminated 12 of the 16 types. And then you just have to figure out which temperament they are. And then you find out specifically, which of the 16 types they are, that’s how the type grid works. Four interaction styles have direct initiating control that’s the in-charge group also known as structure types. Yeah, the starter types, this is where I’m at, which was informative, initiating movement types. You have the finishers basically, and those are the direct responding movement types. And the background types also known as behind the scenes. And that is the informative, responding control types. Great. 


We know this already and I’m gonna be defining each of those terms, so you can kind of use this like a dictionary. So it makes a little bit more sense. So, but the temperaments however going in a little bit deeper. We’ve talked about how SJs are traditionalist past focused duty-based protectors. We’ve talked about how artisans are freedom-based creators living in the moment, et cetera. And we’ve talked about how intellectuals are future thinkers or thinkers, according to Plato in his model. And then there’s the idealists, the intuitive feelers, but we haven’t talked about, which we will touch on has definition of terms abstraction versus concrete. Abstraction as applied to intuitives. And concrete is applied to the sensors. So if you’re trying to figure out someone’s temperament, okay, well you’ve got their interaction styles, so you’ve eliminated 12 with a type. So you have four left. Well, you need to determine if they’re an intuitive or a sensor next. Are they conversing or speaking or interacting in a way that is abstracting ideas or are they doing it that’s based on something more concrete or down to earth. So once you know those, you can eliminate half of the remaining four and then you’re down to two types. And then after that, all you have to do is figure out if they’re affiliative or pragmatic. And once you understand the definition of affiliative or pragmatic, you finally have eliminated to the final type and you know exactly which of the 16 types they are. So anyway, this lecture series will be deeper in terms of defining what those terms are and then we’re gonna re put them into the type grid again. We’ll revisit the type grid and we’ll do some examples of how to type specific types with it. We might even throw a celebrity in there. For example, it’d be like, hey, let’s type the celebrity based on what we know, probably do a screen sharing session for that. 


We’ll talk to Alex, see what he would have in mind for that before we do it. But yeah, just be aware of that having these additional attributes on the part of the temperaments is really going to increase accuracy and make the type grid a little bit better. I’ve noticed that a lot of people within the community have not really had a problem so far with determining interaction style. The main issue has been the temperaments. And a lot of the reason for that is traditionally speaking from an MBTI approach, a lot of people have been focusing on the QRC way of doing things and identifying temperament, which let’s be honest, I am very against QRC. I prefer the Plato way of doing it. I prefer Dr. Linda Berens, his take on Plato’s system, which is how she has developed her form of identifying the temperaments and I find it ideal. Now we do have a member of the community, Bale. And Bale mentioned that he doesn’t really prefer typing people from a behavioral standpoint. And I understand where he’s coming at because he’s anti-hero, he’s an INFJ. And I get it. 


I get that it can be not ideal for an anti-hero as inferior to be able to do that per se. But I think that after we understand the specific definitions of these terms from a young and analytical psychology standpoint, from a temperament standpoint, once we really understand that the definition of these terms and you do it all the way across the board, be it from temperaments or to interaction styles, you really will have everything tools wise in your toolbox to type anyone including yourself. So yeah, it was necessary to do this because like I said, we were having some issues within the community and I wanna make sure that this component of the community and everything that’s taught here at CSJ is understood. Because if you can’t identify your own type or if you’re having a hard time identifying someone else’s type and you’re at risk of mistyping yourself or others, what’s the point? So based on the people that have been supportive so far, and those offering criticism to myself as a result, which I thank you guys for the criticism, it’s very helpful. We’re just gonna do a quick nine. Let’s see. Yeah, no, a quick six lectures after this one. So total of seven lectures with this particular lecture series and just kind of get it nipped in the bud. And then we’ll add another one to revisit the type grade. We’re all white boarded out and just kind of give you some practical examples with specific types and we’ll go from there.
