Colorization of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

What is the experiential difference between black-and-white movies and ones made in color, as well as between a particular movie’s black-and-white and colorized versions? 

The argument for black-and-white is that it is more stylistic, dreamlike, and “mysterious.” However, some of us dream in vivid color—B&W is not so dreamy. And when our desire is not for mystery but for lucid information that is rich and reflects reality, a lack of “color” conveys intellectual starkness, incompleteness, oversimplification, diminished value. As a corollary to Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome” lyric, we say: Everything looks better in color. Black-and-white is unarguably an artful style but most desirable and useful when the objective is to deaden senses and drive perceptions down narrow avenues. Hence, some dramatic black-and-white film noir productions are powerful and excellent. 

Take the above argument that “everything looks better in color” and raise it to meta-level, as we were recently inspired to do with respect to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment. The MBTI is based on Carl Gustav Jung’s Personality Types. Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, drew on Jung’s conceptualizing in developing the MBTI—a technology to advance application of Jung’s theory. It has been our experience and observation that the MBTI is a valuable tool when the assessment process is conducted properly and the results are utilized appropriately. 

Colorizing the MBTI was an easy task for our Noetitek™ system—the most elaborate system of correspondences ever invented—because Nature’s color spectrum is a core component of the Rosetta Stone-like Noetitek™. The result of this meta-colorization is as profound as watching the Wizard of Oz movie, which begins with black-and-white scenes in Kansas and seeing it suddenly shift to full-color cinemascapes of Oz. 

In addition to adding immediate richness of quality to a trained user’s grasp of the meaning and import of each personality type—and of each element of each type—a new way of working with the MBTI emerged. By applying the Noetitek™ colorized MBTI we are able to engage in expanded articulation of distinctions among, for example, “INFJ” people, and distinctions among “Idealists.” The enhancement is profoundly effective in addressing not only questions related to compatibility, but in developing constructive strategies for enhanced responses to discrete areas of incompatibility. 

More importantly, this approach to the MBTI can lead its widespread usage away from the too-common unenlightened tendency to simplistically profile or pigeonhole subjects. Instead, for the first time, it is possible to systematically identify similarities among members of populations without losing sight of meaningful identifiable individual gradations (and personalized sets of gradations) of MBTI personality elements through quantification of the qualitative data revealed through colorization. 

Are a given couple on the same wavelength? With our colorized version of the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator that question is not only answerable but answerable with a degree of certainty never before possible with the MBTI system—because now the assessment can be done in accordance with the Noetitek™-guided analysis of the whole range of MBTI-describable human vibrational frequencies with respect to personality. 

Most important, the question can now be asked and answered: How can the diversity of wavelengths find greater harmony with less emphasis on behavior modification?
