Topic: Deepening Conflict Using the Myers-Briggs Personality Types

Presenter: Andrea Wenger

While plot may keep an audience on the edge of their chairs, it’s the characters that make readers fall in love with a story. In this presentation, you’ll discover how to apply the Myers-Briggs personality types to add depth to your characters. For instance, is she an introvert or extrovert? Is he a stickler for details, or does he prefer to look at the big picture? Does she consider logic or people first when making a decision? Does he like to plan out his day, or follow opportunities as they arise?

Find out how you can apply knowledge of personality type to deepen the potential for conflict. Using a combination of theory and exercises, this interactive presentation will give you yet another tool for bringing your characters to life.
