The 12 Heartbeats and the Myers-Brigg

I have discovered that the 12 Heartbeats have a propensity towards certain Myers-Brigg personality types.

Myers-Briggs uses 4 categories with 2 preferences in each category. It's the same as preferring your right or left hand. Just because you prefer to use your left hand doesn't mean you can't use your right. It is merely preference. The preferences are Extroversion vs Introversion, Sensing vs Intuition, Thinking vs Feeling and Judging vs Perceiving. More Info

View the Reference Chart

Example of using this chart:

Say you have a person that was born during the year of the Tiger (EFP), the Hour of the Rooster (IST) and the month of the Ox (ITJ).  Added all together the preferences are: E/II, S, TT/F, J/P

So this person will have a natural tendancy towards being an ISTJ or an ISTP But they will have a hidden extroverted and feeling side that will come out at times.

This doesn't take into consideration environmental factors which sculpts our preferences.

Say this person grew up in a family that values intuition and feeling. They could develop a preference for intuition and feeling despite the fact their temperament does not prefer it as much as Sensing and Thinking.

And say this person grew up in a family that strongly values analytical thinking and dislikes the abstract. That person would likely have their natural temperament preferences reinforced and will become a strong ISTJ and bury their slight feeling and perceiving preferences.
