Earlier this week, we shared part one of this conversation, all about how to use the Myers-Briggs to avoid burnout. No matter which of the 16 personality types there are (The Healer, The Architect, The Teacher, The Protector, to name a few), this wisdom is applicable to you. Because when you understand your preferences that dictate your conscious actions and unconscious behaviors, you can create better boundaries in your work and life that help you avoid burnout.

Now, if you haven’t heard part one, go back and listen to that one first. But if you’re ready to continue on, let’s pick back up here with my conversation with psychotherapist and author Jessica Butts as she simplifies how to use the Myers-Briggs to avoid burnout.

It’s time to simplify… Here’s how.


My special guest today is Jessica Butts and she is simplifying how to use the Myers-Briggs to avoid burnout.

We tackle and simplify all aspects of it, including:

  • Why we hear about burnout being such a prevalent thing these days and her theory on the root cause
  • We talked about the 16 Myers-Briggs personality types and why this tool has helped her and her clients to avoid burnout
  • When we suppress our Intuition and look outside of ourselves to social media influencers, what actually is happening here… she teaches us how to look within 
  • How to tune out the external noise and distractions, so that you can create your own unique path with your career
  • …and ultimately, we talked about “healing the hustle,” what that means, and how to redefine success on your terms, based on your personality type.

All this month, we are focused on the theme of “Self-Discipline,” helping you stay on track in your work and in your life… and get back to thriving. You have the power to create the life you really want to live, if only you simply remembered what’s possible… and make Bold Asks for what you need, want, and desire. Today is a fresh start and a new beginning.

Your 1000 daily choices will help you get there. 

We will explore what that means on every level this month, both personally and professionally.
