Jell: Team Chemistry Makes a Difference

 

mbtisoionicsIf you have worked in a company large enough to support an HR department or had a counsellor at your high school who was interested in personality tests, you will likely have heard of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Throughout the western world, MBTI has been a key player in the range of psychometric tests employers have put viable candidates through. One can understand the surprising popularity of this system as being due to its satisfying format: rather than a simple assessment that puts people somewhere along a scale or a series of scales (Big 5, Morrisby etc.), MBTI is formatted as a typology system, assigning one of sixteen possible types to people.

Differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury

The person who is being bullied will eventually say something like “I think I’m being paranoid…“; however they are correctly identifying hypervigilance, a symptom of PTSD, but using the popular but misunderstood word paranoia. The differences between hypervigilance and paranoia make a good starting point for identifying the differences between mental illness and psychiatric injury.

Paranoia Hypervigilance
  • paranoia is a form of mental illness; the cause is thought to be internal, eg a minor variation in the balance of brain chemistry
  • is a response to an external event (violence, accident, disaster, violation, intrusion, bullying, etc) and therefore an injury
  • paranoia tends to endure and to not get better of its own accord
  • wears off (gets better), albeit slowly, when the person is out of and away from the situation which was the cause
  • the paranoiac will not admit…
