“I’m unpredictable?”

“I’m unpredictable?” I found that hard to believe. She shook her head. “I’m certain that you believe that everything you do is perfectly predictable. It probably is, to you, or to someone who thinks like you do. But for the rest of the Collegium…”

This is why it is important to talk about how we think and feel. Why tools like MBTI and FIRO-B are needed to give explanations for how we are different. They are models of the human mind and human behaviour and can not explain everything, but they are a good way to start talking about our differences and similarities. It helps make us more predictable to one another and to make cooperating easier.
