People come in all shapes and sizes. The same can be said about people's personalities, and dancing is one of the time honored methods of expressing those personalities. As we begin growing as dancers, it can be easy to lose a sense of individuality while learning all the moves and steps. Infusing some of your unique personality into your dance can make all the difference in the world, and your partner will love you for it!
In order to pursue personalizing our dancing, Brew City Hops teachers Henry Boeh and Tory Bahe will be giving a shout-out this month to a psychology legend, Carl Jung. His theories surrounding personalty types led to the development of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), a questionnaire used to identify personality traits across 4 domains. These include:
- Extroversion/Introversion (how much we like interacting with the external world versus internal ideas)
- Sensing/Intuition (how much we like concrete evidence versus acting on hunches)
- Thinking/Feeling (whether we prefer to make decisions using logic versus emotion and empathy)
- Judging/Perception (how much we interact with the world with thinking and feeling versus sensing and intuiting)
