14. Thanks for your thoughtful post KY_EnviroGuy.

I agree with everything you said. We are the peacekeepers and the mediators, but we also run from conflict in personal situations, which is totally me. I have a hard time with confrontation, which is not always good because it prevents me from being honest in the name of sparing people's feelings. I struggle to find a way to be truthful and kind at the same time.

I am also highly sensitive and would often rather retreat to the peace and quiet of my apartment than get out into the world. However, I enjoy the day to day interaction of mingling with people in my city neighborhood, but I think it's because I don't have to get to close. I am most comfortable with people that I have know for a long time and who I can really be myself with. I feel very insecure around people I don't know well, especially if they are extroverted. I can't stand being around loud, obnoxious people.

We actually use the MBTI a lot in my company, except they call it "Type Coach" and I think it's very useful. It pretty much describes most people's personalities and work styles to a tee. It shouldn't pidgeonhole people, but it's helpful in understanding where people are coming from.

Thanks again for your post KY! Good to hear from you!
