Insightful – Enjoyable – Rewarding
Ideal for teens, parents, families, educators or anyone working with youth
The Type for Teens Personality Puzzle cards are ideal for coaching and guidance wherever young people are involved. I personally use them for one-on-one coaching with teens for either a careers conversation or just to help them see their strengths and appreciate diversity amongst their peers and in all other relationships. The rewards are astounding as the penny drops that it is OK to be who they are. The colourful graphics add to the appeal and the novelty of learning without being on-line is now a selling point! In truth what young people want is a conversation with someone who cares. The cards set up an ideal space to do this. The Type for Teens cards are easy to use and the students are quick to learn.
The Type for Teens User Guide is available here.
A 70 page, full colour manual on how to use the cards to their maximum potential. It contains:
- An introduction to the Myers-Briggs theory
- Coaching questions and activities for each of the preferences
- Information on Type dynamics
- A clear explanation on how to work out dominant functions
- Advice on how to engage different personality types when talking about Type
- Articles on using the cards with this age group
Sue offers training specifically on how to get the most from these cards. She can run workshops where she lives in New Zealand, otherwise Skype and FaceTime options are a popular alternative when distance demands a technical solution. Please contact Sue for more information.
The resource includes preference cards for each of the 8 preferences and 16 whole type descriptions which have been specifically written with teens in mind (although people of all ages love them!). Cards linking personality with career direction as well as preferred learning environments are also included. Click here for examples.
Made from high quality laminated cards they can be used hundreds of times over. They offer an invaluable opportunity to guide a young person through a self-assessment of their own type preferences which has the advantage of them ‘owning’ the process. This can be accompanied by taking a questionnaire or on-line assessment but most often I use the cards independently. Once purchased you have permission to enlarge the preference cards at your local printer and make posters which add visual appeal to a learning environment. I allow the people I am working with to take as many photos as they wish.
