Why is the SL-TDI portrayed as “Expanding the Boundaries of Psychological Type”?

There are at least 12 reasons why the SL-TDI expands the boundaries of Psychological Type:

  1. The SL-TDI is the first Jungian Type inventory designed to directly measure the Extraverted and the Introverted expression of each of the four Type Functions (Sensing, Intuiting, Thinking and Feeling).
  2. The SL-TDI measures Type functioning using eight Likert type scales; all of the other Type inventories use a forced choice format to collect information for the purpose of putting individuals into a pre-existing set of categories, i.e., 16 Types or 4 Temperaments.
  3. The SL-TDI measures what an individual actually does with his or her Type capacities; all of the other Type inventories collect information about what an individual prefers to do.
  4. The SL-TDI is the first Type inventory to show how each Type Function operates— by measuring how much of each Type Function is expressed through Extraverting and how much through Introverting.
  5. The SL-TDI is the first Type inventory to show how the individual is Introverted—by measuring how much each of the four Introverted Type Functions contribute to the individual’s overall Introversion.
  6. The SL-TDI is the first Type inventory to show how the individual is Extraverted—by measuring how much each of the four Extraverted Type Functions contribute to the individual’s overall Extraversion.
  7. The SL-TDI is the first Type inventory to show how the individual Perceives—by measuring how much each of the four Perceiving Type Functions contribute to the individual’s overall Perceiving.
  8. The SL-TDI is the first Type inventory to show how the individual Judges—by measuring how much each of the four Judging Type Functions contribute to the individual’s overall Judging.
  9. The SL-TDI assumes that personality expression is a result of trait and state, nature and nurture. The other Type inventories take the position that traits or nature determine personality functioning.
  10. The SL-TDI results are far more individualized than any other Type Inventory—the SL-TDI is capable of producing an estimated 6.5 million distinct and meaningfully different Type Profiles.
  11. The highly individual results generated by the SL-TDI help to minimize stereotyping self and others with preconceived attributes and encourages getting to know self and other.
  12. The SL-TDI shifts the concept of Type from the Individual as a Type to the Individual with Type capacities.
