Tips for Parenting Children Who Prefer Thinking

Parenting Based On Personality Type
What you need to know & do to support the child that
makes decisions through the thinking preference

According to Carl Jung, father of personality type, Thinking Children make decisions through the Thinking preference. They make objective decisions.
Characteristics of the child that prefers Thinking:

  • Don’t require as much feedback as Feeling children
  • More likely to use feedback to evaluate how well they are performing
  • Need feedback to be specific
  • Prefer feedback to be about their individual performances rather than about relationships
  • Need opportunities to earn the positive feedback

Tips for Parenting Children Who Prefer Thinking:

  • Understand that if you bend the rules for others, the T child will most likely become stressed.
  • Understand that when they ask why, they are not being defiant, They are actually asking why, and are looking for clarity and more details.
  • More likely to access the information if given enough details
  • Can be very direct, and may need help developing diplomacy
  • Be specific with your praises
