- Vicky Jo Varner—Sensing and Sensibility(Event)(3 days)
The Capital City Chapter—Association for Psychological Type (CCC-APT) is a local affiliate of the Association for Psychological Type International, located in Sacramento, California. We share an interest in psychological type, with some interested primarily in research and others in the practical application of type theory in everyday life. Among the topics commonly discussed are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) and David Keirsey’s work on temperament. CCC-APT members come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, with positions in business and industry, organizational development, religion, education, and counseling.

The visitor fee is $35 for a half-day workshop, $45 for a full-day workshop (half price for students with ID regardless of workshop length); cash or check only, please (paying at the door is OK). For more information, check out our declaration of values and directions to our meetings.
We hope to see you soon!
A majority of APTi members (and type enthusiasts) are said to have a preference for intuition. Perhaps for this reason, sensation is among the most poorly understood of the eight psychic functions as Jung identified them in his typology scheme. Many definitions of sensation found online are bunk, and it is frequently disrespected as a vital process.
During this interactive, multimedia presentation, we will bring you into better relationship with the sensation function. We will explore the sensing function in depth, including:
- What does sensation look like?
- What does sensation feel like?
- What does sensation contribute typologically?
- How did Jung define sensation?
- How do other type experts (such as John Beebe) define sensation?
- How do introverted and extraverted sensation differ?
- Why are sensation types sometimes hard to spot?
- How effectively does the MBTI identify sensation?
- How is sensation marginalized in the type community?
- Who are leading Jungians with preferences for sensation?
- How does sensation manifest in American culture?
- Bring a handful of your favorite drawing tools (Sharpies, crayons, colored pencils).
- Wear comfortable clothing to move in.
- Wear a hat or headband—normal or silly.
