Type and Creativity
Thursday 10 May, 7pm: David Goldstein
We have an unprecedented blank slate to reset everything in our daily lives including our work. Whether you think of yourself as a naturally creative person or not, we all must be inventive. Here we’ll talk about ways to better understand your own creativity using personality type and to optimize your creative process and contributions. In this highly visual presentation, we’ll look toward the arts for example how we prefer to gather information and make decisions – allowing us to better understand our creative problem-solving process.
David is an artist, writer, researcher, and originator of the “Art-types” concept. He has been involved in the type community for over 15 years with the highlight being exploring the connections between creativity and psychological types with Otto Kroeger. David and Otto co-authored Creative You: Using Your Personality Type to Thrive, published by Simon and Schuster, with the aim to show everyone they can be creative. Goldstein presented at several APTi Biennial Conferences, spoke at APTi Chapter events, and has authored for the Bulletin of Psychological Type.
Type and the Ladder of Ego Development
Tuesday 18 Jan 2022: Angelina Bennet
While it is true that no Type is any better than any other, there are visible differences in how we express our Type. Obviously, some of this is due to our environment, experience, upbringing and general individuality; however, the effectiveness with which we use our Type can often be linked to our stage of development and/or ability to cope with pressure. In this session, Angelina will describe Ego Development Theory (Loevinger; Cook-Greuter) and how we can combine this with Type to give a ‘vertical’ dimension to our understanding of Type. Parallels with Jung’s and Myers’ theories of type development and a brief look at the empirical support for this theory will be included.
Angelina is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist with expertise in personality from a variety of perspectives. She has been using type for over 20 years and has a particular interest in Type Development. Her doctoral thesis was based on combining Type with Ego Development theory, adding another dimension to Type. As well as running a consultancy business, Angelina is co-director of Type Pro Ltd – a training company that qualifies people to be Type practitioners. She is the author of The Shadows of Type: Type thorough Seven Levels of Development and a past president of BAPT. In her other life, she is a yoga enthusiast, a budding guitarist and the mother of two delightful boys.
How to Use Type Ethically
Thursday 10 Feb 2022: Jerry Gilpin
Type practitioners have all come across examples of bad use of type – when people have been limited, defined or ‘othered’ by type language; when organisations have used type to manipulate or select or exclude individuals. But how do we ‘do type’ well? What does good practice look like? None of us will be perfect; but this webinar is a chance to share best practice and to learn from one another about how we can deliver an ethical type experience that focusses on the person and their preferences, and how we can put type into practice in the way we act as professionals.
Jerry Gilpin is the Board secretary of BAPT and an independent coach, supervisor, facilitator and consultant based in Bristol UK. The session will be interactive and involve other members of the BAPT Board.

Being a teacher, parent or teenager can be incredibly stressful and difficult as we navigate such important years.
In this session David will share insights that help us understand each other better, improve communication, relationships, learning and motivation by applying some of the best bits of personality type. By exploring the four big chunks of personality, and perhaps even the fifth, plus David Keirsey’s temperaments model; David will offer positive, practical tips and ideas that improve relationships.
