Conversation between soccer players last weekend . . .
“What do you know about Jason Engles?”
Who’s Jason Engles?
“You know, Jason Engles, in Algebra.”
I don’t know Jason Engles.
“Jason Engles. Jason Engles!”
Aaahhh, adjacent angles.
“That’s what I said.”

For all of the soccer parents out there who have spent a cold Sunday in April or November attempting to determine if we will make it home by bedtime… GOAL DIFFERENTIAL!!
If you are familiar with psychological type and the MBTI®, you may recognize that type theory explains the random behavior of people’s lives as actually quite orderly and patterned. This is due to basic methods used by individuals to take in information and make decisions.
The last letter of the 4-letter MBTI code highlights the process one uses in dealing with the outer world. Do you prefer to plan ahead and get things decided (Judging) or do you prefer to remain flexible and open to new options (Perceiving)? Not to be confused with organization, as either preference can be organized, the J or P Preference indicates how we interact in our outer life, whether structured and decided (J) or curious and open-ended (P).
Which option would you choose?
Do you prefer to:
Arrange lunch plans, events, parties, etc., well in advance, or
Be free to spend your day doing whatever looks like fun?
