Step Research developed Visual Type, a visual model of Carl Jung’s Psychological Types showing that each person uses all eight behaviors.
Visualization makes it easier to understand how individuals and groups most naturally make decisions and behave. This helps individuals with self awareness and helps others understand what they can expect from the individual.
This can be particularly helpful when comparing an individual’s Visual Type to a group’s Visual Type to determine if the individual can help fill gaps or deficits in the group’s natural go-to behaviors.
In the example below of INTP, the largest box is the dominant go-to behavior and the second largest box is the supporting go-to behavior. Visual Type provides a visual guide to the predictive use and accessibility of each behavior and an instantly recognizable way to see differences between people.
