Myers Briggs: Are you Judging or Perceiving?

 

 

We all are attracted to different kind of people sometimes it’s someone who likes to be in control of a situation and sometimes it’s the opposite. But generally most of us are attracted towards the first kind, someone who is assertive, commanding, headstrong and is not afraid to keep a stand. Though what we prefer depends on our gender, as a study shows that most women prefer dominant guys (the bad boys). Though most people are dominant, there are different ways for them to portray that.

According to the study social dominance includes characteristics like being authoritative, in control and taking leadership roles. These people on the other hand are often missing in docile and submissive people, as they are more caring and sensitive people which dominant people are not. Despite of their insensitiveness which no one really seeks in a potential partner, they are preferred by more people, but these people have also stated that they prefer a combination of both. They want their partner to be assertive and dominating but also want them to pay attention to their feelings and be sensitive. Because at the end of the day everyone wants a partner who despite of being competitive to others treat their partner well.

It is believed that dominant men have superior genes, hence they are widely preferred by women especially when they are at the most fertile phase of their menstrual cycle. On the other hand most men do no seek dominant women rather women who are more submissive.

“I feel too much. That’s what’s going on.’ ‘Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways?’ ‘My insides don’t match up with my outsides.’ ‘Do anyone’s insides and outsides match up?’ ‘I don’t know. I’m only me.’ ‘Maybe that’s what a person’s personality is: the difference between the inside and outside.’ ‘But it’s worse for me.’ ‘I wonder if everyone thinks it’s worse for him.’ ‘Probably. But it really is worse for me.”
― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

“There’s such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I’m such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn’t be half so interesting.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.”
― Idowu Koyenikan, Wealth for All: Living a Life of Success at the Edge of Your Ability

“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away. This responsiveness had nothing to do with that flabby impressionability which is dignified under the name of the “creative temperament”–it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again. No–Gatsby turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
