Sensation: The Ultimate Romantic Function

Presenter - Carol Shumate (ENFP)

We tend to think of intuitive types as dreamy, romantic types, but this session will show us that our sensation function has a critical role to play in romance, as well as in type recognition. Sensing types predominate in the world at large, but we type practitioners tend to be better at identifying and understanding intuitive types.

This workshop will exercise our sensation functions through three different sensate activities:  1) watching and discussing a fictional film whose characters are predominantly sensing types; 2) analyzing documentary videos of sensing types describing themselves to identify visual and verbal cues to the types; and 3) engaging in art activities to identify how the sensing functions manifest for each of us. These activities will hone our abilities as depth psychologists and type practitioners, helping us to recognize the deep insights that type gives us into others and ourselves.
