The Diplomat Type

The diplomats primary purpose can be described as to establish a sense of global community or shared domain.

We all need to find a way to get along and to deal better with one another. We often misunderstand each others and get into conflicts because we do not understand each other. So communication is the primary skill the Feeling Judging type is always working to develop. This includes having a strong grasp of how other people speak and feel.

We try our best to anticipate how other people will react and respond and we look to see how we can best influence other people and explain our feelings to others. Our key struggle is our lack of precision and accuracy. We often miss the mark or fail to perform according to the system’s standards. We may break the rules of the game or underperform according to the criteria’s set by the system.

The common games around us cause us stress and we struggle when people play with us or use tactics and strategy to get ahead. We have a strong need for fairness and for everyone to feel included and to have a role and struggle with competitive individuals and environments, as they tend to have less established diplomacy.
