FROM CHAPTER THREE:"WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?"

"...Congratulations, you're an ISFS!
This four letter definition represents your FPYC Temperament Type.
The Future Proof Your Career (FPYC) Type Indicator System presents your individual make-up in the context of the modern day work market, and helps you to arrive at a clear understanding of your Authentic Direction.
The system is based on the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, who developed the theory that individuals each had a psychological type.
He believed that there were two basic kinds of "functions" which humans used in their lives: how we take in information (using our senses or our intuition), and how we make decisions (using objective logic, or subjective criteria).
Jung’s work has subsequently been developed by many researchers, most notably the mother and daughter team of Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, who developed the very well known Myers Briggs Type Indicator.
Your FPYC Type is one of 16 temperament types, which are all based on four variables, namely how you:
• interact with the world – as an Introvert or Extrovert. (You’re an Introvert.)
• take in and process information – as a Sensor or Intuitor. (You’re a Sensor.)
• make decisions – as a Thinker or Feeler. (You’re a Feeler.)
• feel about structure versus spontaneity – a Structured or Unstructured Type. (You’re a Structured Type.)
Hence your four letter combination – ISFS.
We are all a mixture of these functions, but most of us tend one way or another on each of them. For example in some situations you may be extroverted, while in another you are introverted.
However, more often than not you tend to behave as an introvert.
This doesn't necessarily mean you are shy, but that you derive your energy primarily from within yourself."
