Give the Kids the MBTI Early

To Give Children the MBTI or Not

Age restrictions on the MBTI? Ha! 

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. (and Women)

~ Frederick Douglass

And, I will add: Adults need therapy to inspect their expectations. Children simply need healthy formatives, of which the over-generalization and apt though at the same time vague MBTI can be a solid tool for self-awareness. Why wait until adulthood to Know Thyself. If one starts with that in childhood, the lifelong pursuit of Self-clarity Is an FICP — Functionally-Interrelated-Component-Part — one of many.

I find it relatively farcical to shield children from most anything. What of times of war or famine or plague or… penademic? Children oftentimes function with more curiosity and wonderment than the I’d-rather-not-see-that denial of many adults.

Frankly, hand them the MBTI with, “Hey, try this and let me know how it feels to you.” I gather children’s responses might expand and desiccate and condense the MBTI to be something more than an average of averages. Heck, they might even evolve it into the Both~And of its powerful potential rather than its current Either/Or that expresses its less than powerful limits.

The MBTI is Simply One of Many Tools

The MBTI is simply one of many tools. And, just because one has a hammer in hand does not mean to only go around looking for nails.

Oh, and by the way, Jung was not raptured into enlightenment by a demon. It was a Daemon. There’s a difference.

Children are not mature enough for the MBTI? Shaking head. Maybe the MBTI is not evolved enough for them to resonate as being a natural expression. When I uncloak that veiled statement, it sounds like people who are adverse to give children the MBTI are saying maturity is really simply admonishing children for being honest to supplant the learned mirages and blind spots of Adulthood.

Yellow Car Syndrome

I have a concept. It’s called Yellow Car Syndrome. In 2005 when I went to buy a brand new car I decided to let serendipity take the reins and I dispensed with all the education from Consumer Reports I had. It was time to let the mind forget as the body remembered. Time to dance so to speak. Now, you know what you need to. Go buy a car.

There were ZERO yellow cars on the road to the dealership. Not one. I would swear to that under oath. I walk in the showroom? There’s this bright, sunflower yellow Euro-trash looking car. I had wanted something bigger, though there it was. 3 steps in, “I’ll take it!” An hour later after paperwork, I drove it off the lot. There must have been 50 yellow cars on the road in the 20+ mile trek back home. Point being, until I saw the yellow car, I was incapable of seeing it. Same with MBTI. Give it to them early. They’ll play with it and basically evolve with their own, personal, yellow car syllabus. By adulthood their personality won;t be a limiting thing needing therapy. It may very well be… the next Carl Gustavo Jung, Julia Morgan, or William Blake or My Friend Fred (Nietzche). Or better. Anais Nin.

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin 

If knowledge is power, give them power early. Maybe by the time they are adults it won’t be a greed thing but a Self-Sovereignty thing where they are strong enough to be able to be gentle. You know, better to be a warrior in the garden than a gardener in a war.

In Closing

Water conforms to its cup. I see no reason not to give children healthy, Self-awareness tools early and often. Seems to me the unconscious is more powerful than to be bullied by the MBTI. Heck, it will simply become another yellow bucket and blue shovel for them to play with towards…

Know Thyself, and You Will Know the Universe.

The Temple Steps

Everyone

Everyone is different, just like everyone else. All similar, each unique. Maybe none of us are born equal, though I herald equanimity and that we are each born with equal value.

Inner Inheritances


We are born with Inner Inheritances, innate talents. Best to you as you inherit your inner treasures each time you discover more about yourself. Best to those talents being something you develop into abilities that support the clarity of vision of just the way you were born to see.

Your Life, Your Way

You are a Temple, inside and out. May you be and continue to become your own Temple inside and out as your life experiences place the steps. How do you Temple yourself? What part of your life builds foundations up under your dreams to reach them and support them and realize them?

When you focus on the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you make an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido. Translation by John Stevens in The Art of Peace

Pardon any typos or awkward language constructions. AutoCorrect often writes things on my behalf that I didn’t Nintendo.

Each Birth Brilliant In Its Age

“Some knowledge and some song and some beauty must be kept
for those days before the world again plunges into darkness.“
~ Marion Zimmer Bradley ~”

Each Birth

Death is the Mother of memory, till-nurturing the soil of future dreams
From the perpetual present.

Always now. Always now.
A false sense of urgency is not warranted.
A presence to the process of the journey
Comfortable in the not-knowing,
Where forgetting, is for getting,
Makes more room for the good stuff,
Is…

May the ground rise up to support your every step.
Especially, those steps where there was no ground as you began to step,
Your Fool Step stepped into your Inner Solar System
As you cascade outwards
In your actions,

And orbit into your realm from your actionable orbits
More ground to support
Your every
Leap of faith step.

Memory is dream? Dream is memory?
Death is the Mother of memory, till-nurturing the soil of future dreams
From the perpetual present.

Both live in the perpetual present,
And simply enter from different portals,
Though they certainly enter,

Memory fueling the present
That nourishes every future dream,

Each birth,
Each birth is brilliant in its age.

In the way

You are born

To see differently.

Your life, Your way.

Each of your births

Embraces,

Took your whole life up to that point.

Each of your births,

Brilliant in its age.

Happy Tarot April Fool’s Leap

Does the Fool Leap?

Does The Fool leap, or is the Fool’s trust in the not-knowing along the path so intrinsically expansive and natural that new ground terraforms under each and every Fool-step?

Is The Fool’s leap of faith simply a metaphor for every step as fresh as breath, as fresh as the first-step breath from The Hermit into The Wheel?

Happy Tarot April no-Foolin’.

Make sure you wear green so you don’t get pinched. lol

Tarot Appearance vs. Reality in The Fool #2

The Land of Mystereum.

. . . where Tarot cards speak!

Tarot’s Fool

As with appearance vs reality in literature,

Is The Fool about to jump off of a cliff or fall in a chasm?

I would venture to say no.

Taking a leap of faith? Definitely!

Maybe though, . . . rather than about to jump off a cliff foolishly,

The Fool’s trust of Fool-way-fulfilling-footsteps brings . . .

the ground under each and every footstep to terra-form and support each step.

Trusting your way, all similar, each unique,

Leap faithfully YOUR WAY!

And, may new ground form under your every step

where the simple ground you walk on is as inspritational as the stars in your sky.

Leaps of faith sometimes do not require one to leave the ground.

What hidden supports are in your world?

May your faithful steps leap-lead your way

as new worlds form under your every step!

Best to You,

Jordan

Tarot Appearance vs. Reality in The Fool

So, I am a self-taught Tarot reader.  I learned Tarot by reading stories . . . the stories told visually by the cards.  That started when I was 4 1/2 — yes, four and a half.   So, I simply started reading Tarot before kindegarten.  It was natural.  It was a natural mode of the way I was born to see.  I now have a deep appreciation for that moment as a wonderfully proper resonance for a reader of any kind.   Books came much later for me.  They are a relatively recent phenomenon in my Tarot experience over the past 2 decades or so.  I learned Tarot by trusting my gut, my intellectually mindbodybeautiful connected-across-the-whole gut.  I feel we can learn not only in many ways, but that each of our ways, our personal modes of experience and expression come about by fully acting in ways only each of us can . . . by living our own, personal prescient remembrances.

The Fool

like appearance vs reality in literature

is not

about to jump

off of a cliff.

The jump as it were is a complete and encompassing thought in continual and innately trusted action.

The jump

of The Fool

is that when inherently trust-acting with the muse,

the ground terra-forms

under each and every

Fool’s step.

I have heard that going against the flow causes resistance and problems.

I know, though, that to fly, it is much easier to turn into the wind

and feel-full fill the sails of my wings.

Inherently trust-acting with your muse,

may the ground terra-form

under each and every

step you take.

May new ground terra-form under each and every step you take. . .

where the simple ground you walk on is as inspritational as the stars in your sky.

. . . may the ground terra-form under each and every Fool-step you take.

Risk is only risk until to take one.

After you take one, it is simply a step . . .

a step with the creation-make-it-happen qualities of bringing your dreams to bear.

Inherently trust-acting with your muse in YOUR way for YOUR highest good,

may The Fool bring ground to terra-form under each and every step you take.

May The Fool bring ground to form and support each and every new step you take.

May Imagin-Action support every step you take!

Imagin-Action to YOU!

Best to You,

Jordan
