The Sensing Judging type is focused on the control of the physical and of our environment and the sensory. They form habits and routines to deal with the world around them. They practice and rehearse and show discipline, and keep working at something until they know it inside and out.
Sensing Judging translates to organisation intelligence and represents how we can look at our environment and see how it all should be organised. Is something in the wrong place? Are things clean and neat? When do we eat and sleep? How many do we invite, how many fit in the room, do we need to get a bigger place?

The Host Type
The host wants to be informed and well in control of a situation. They value knowing how things are and how they should best be. Their focus is on the past, both the past they already have, and the past they want to make or recreate.
They take advantage for seeing over and making sure the ship stays afloat, looking at what needs to be done to maintain the rules, order, and organisation they believe is most important. They like to have a good method or approach to things. Rule of thumb and common practices they can apply to solve issues and problems.
