Why get professional personality profiling?
You're likely seeking help with defining your personality type often because life is calling for it.
Perhaps you're struggling with relationships and want to understand why your partner does that thing you can't understand (and why you can't understand it).
Perhaps you're having a difficult time cultivating your purpose, can't decide on a career, or even wanting to start your own business and want to learn your own strengths in order to attract new clients.
Perhaps the world is overwhelming and you're needing a new way to self-soothe, access accurate self-care, and learn how your brain truly rests and recharges you to be able to bring your best to the world.
No matter your reasoning, the goal of learning your personality is to begin a process of growth, healing, and giving you the answers you've been looking for in a way that's easy to understand and take with you into your daily life.
Working with a professional personality profiler creates an opportunity for you to take a breather on your extensive journey of self-discovery. While simple online tests can be accurate and helpful for initial discovery, no test knows your context and can give personal coaching advice based on your answers.
Each interview includes questions designed to put you at ease and simply express yourself. We have a verification process for you to confirm your type one letter at a time then an explanation of what are called "Cognitive Functions" to uncover some truly powerful growth opportunities, and along the way we provide coaching elements and insights to give you some direction as to where to go next with these insights.
Every one of our profilees have felt a massive sense of relief after finishing a Myers-Briggs profiling session. Your relationships will improve, your opportunities will light up, and you'll be able to rest into your own natural and powerful strengths of who you are.
No matter your personality type, there is an opportunity to bring your best to the world, have great relationships, cultivate purpose, be successful, and achieve your vision.
Are you ready to have your potential unlocked?
Many INTPs see intuition as "woo-woo" nonsense and not a good use of time but no, not you. You understand that it's not about belief and dissonance but about expanding your territory of understanding to no longer limit yourself.
You're excited about the idea of expanding your mind into the ever-reaching expanse of the Cosmos. You sense there's something bigger out there worth exploring but you're not quite sure how to begin.
Begin by exploring our self-learning program called Cosmic Calibration: Expanding INTP Intuition
In a time increasingly split by social media's massive influence on society, we've entered an era of intense loneliness, dispair, comparison, guilt, shame, and disconnection on an unprecedented level. It's become more difficult to trust in each other and even more difficult to trust in ourselves as we take fewer breaks to reflect, become more distracted, and don't know what to do next. I believe that trust in ourselves, one person at a time, is how we begin to take develop collective contribution, connection, level-up emotionally, take healthy risks, unconditionally love ourselves, and gain self-respect to put out into the world.
I call this personal empowerment.

Through our podcast, Youtube channel, and premium programs at DOPEamine Prime we encourage self-learning and safe inner-exploration.

I support media expansion for coaches, speakers, and personal development experts such as my friends at Personality Hacker through consulting and production of video, audio, graphic design. I've produced digital media for TV and film with brands such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney Animation, Sony Imageworks, Focus Features.
I originally created DOPEamine as an outlet and expression about my mental health challenges with ADHD and Cyclothymia, a form of bipolar disorder, and how those challenges manifested in day to day life.
I started podcasting to get my feelings into the world, conducting my own cognitive behavioral therapy openly.
Keeping my feelings inside wasn't doing me any good.
Once I began learning about my personality type as an INTP with Personality Hacker and Personality Junkie, I was able to start seeing the differences between what was my personality needing to grow and what was my mental illness needing professional support.
It was in this search that I formed two major codes:
1. There is no such thing as normal. We are all wonderfully complex.
2. If we figure out where we are we can find where to go.
Through Personality Profiling we can figure out where you are using Myers-Briggs and Cognitive Functions, to define your normal, and figure out where you to go.
By knowing how your mind is wired, you can know when something isn't quite right and, with coaching, learn how to improve your relationships, find career focus, and give yourself accurate self-care.
Our self-learning opportunities are built to foster deeper learning and self-expansion for those like me who are yearning to take back their lives and be feel empowered to reclaim our center for ourselves every day.
Why the name?
A play on words, our brain releases dopamine as a reaction to positive experiences. I personally manage ADHD and Cyclothymia, which introduces a chemical imbalance of not getting enough dopamine, which can exacerbate feelings of hopelessness and depression. Despite those challenges I use my personality type and other systems to help manage symptoms, get support, and take personal responsibility for my path forward. That's what I want to encourage in others trying to do the same.
DOPEamine started as a platform for personal expression of those challenges and the empowerment that comes from taking personal responsibility and the joy found in everyday places.
What is the vision?
With DOPEamine we hope to expand the media presence, awareness, support, and encouragement of personal empowerment and creative expression for humans of the world exploring ways to reclaim their sense of self, improve their relationships, find career focus, and give themselves accurate self-care.
Why does your Personality Type matter?
Myers-Briggs is an amazing tool for reclaiming your center and calibrating to your everyday needs. If you know how your brain is wired, you can know when you're being stretched too thin and get yourself back on track.
Doctors and therapy help for the big picture of chemical challenges that are beyond our pay grade. What we help with is the bouts of everyday despair that we can be empowered to face ourselves with the tools that personal development offers.
When we honor our personality, those feel-good chemicals give us the energy and clarity we need to go forward. Sometimes when life stretches us thin, we simply need to make a change.
Through the discovery process of a profiling session, we determine who you are, what your challenges are, and what your superpower is to see if anything is being neglected to then determine where you can go next...if that's therapy, coaching, or one of our programs.
Plenty of people find out that everything is great! That validation is also helpful. Who wouldn't want to know that they're on the right track?
Ultimately, it's about discovering your path forward, regardless of what that looks like.
What is personality profiling?
Have you ever felt a sense that there are other people out there like you?
...or a feeling that some people don't quite think the same way you do?
...or that you can't do what some others do no matter how hard you try?
...or that some things that are obvious to you aren't quite so obvious to others?
Personality Profiling is a deep dive into why that is through an interview, verification, and explanation process of determining your best-fit personality type.
Specifically, Myers-Briggs personality profiling. You know, the four-letter code you've probably heard of at work or some Facebook group.
Chances are you've identified with at least one of the 16 types:
INTP, ENTP, ESTP, ISTP, ESFP, ENFP, INFP, ISFP, ESFJ, ISFJ, ESTJ, ISTJ, ENFJ, INFJ, ENTJ, INTJ
I ask you all sorts of questions about yourself, your life, and whatever you're willing to share. What makes a profiling session different from taking a test is that I get to experience your energy and notice your unconscious behavior. An online test can't do that. An online test also can't coach you based on your experience and context if you need a little advice on how to move forward.
Almost all profiling sessions include some form of coaching.
What is Myers-Briggs?
Myers-Briggs is a system created by Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs as an expansion on the Personality Archetype work of famed psychologist Carl Jung.
Myers and Briggs took the archetypes created by Carl Jung, focused on learning styles and decision-making styles, and adapted them for use in workplace hiring in a time when the workforce needed more women to take the place of men who were drafted into the military.
With the time period being what it was and women not working much, there wasn't much room to hire on the merits of experience, so this system was used to hire based on personality.
The system has continued to be used in workplace hiring and calibration of business growth but the implications for personal development have been growing as a coaching, marketing, and exploring interpersonal dynamics tool.
How does DOPEamine use Myers-Briggs?
One of the key visions for DOPEamine is to talk about using Myers-Briggs for day to day calibration to check in with your mental state, environment, relationships, career, and self-care to see if you're accurately nurturing how your mind is wired.
This means, in a nutshell, that your Myers-Briggs personality type is a way of defining what "normal" is for you. And defining your sense of normal is a big step towards quelling everyday challenges like comparison, self-criticism, and every-day forms of anxiety.
This means using this tool as a means to help you calibrate to your version of normal instead of society's version of normal.
In a scientific sense, it's establishing a "control" for who you are to get a better sense of when something is not quite right.
what does it mean to have a personality type?
Think of your best-fit type as the way of learning and making decisions that your mind rubber-bands back to. We can learn skills around other kinds of thinking and behavior as we adjust to our environment (which is totally normal) but pushing too far can create psychological challenges and unhealthy levels of stress.
It's kind of like trying to push down a beach ball in a pool...it'll pop back up no matter how much force you apply.
That means if you're struggling with daily challenges, repeated failures and not knowing which way is normal then a profiling session is a vital tool to know your best-fit type and figure out your control point to know when something is off.
Not just a gut feeling but to know for sure what's up and what to do about it.
Who needs to know their type?
Not everyone NEEDS to know their type but it's helpful to know if everything is okay and if not, we help you uncover your next steps.
what's involved in a profiling session?
These sessions are about 45-90 minutes on average and consist of answering questions from a real person over a zoom, skype call or in-person about you, your life, and what it means to be you to determine how you recharge, how you make decisions, how you learn and how you prefer to show up to the world.
We then verify your type, meaning you confirm who you are, following by a deep dive explanation into your personality type and ways to incorporate this new knowledge into your life.
Can't I just take an online test?
You can but you'll only get so much out of it. Self-assessment relies on how much you know about yourself and no way of applying context to the explanations of your type. Type descriptions can be generic and only make you more confused.
Working one-on-one with a trained profiler creates a feeling of trust and certainty that we're being thorough. We want to give you confidence that we'll support you without judgment and support your journey of self-discovery.
We want to get it right, make it a safe space, and allow you to rest your shoulders when we're done.
Why are you doing This?
The process of creating DOPEamine has saved my life. When I felt like I had no more control and was doomed to be a failure, I discovered the difference between my personality and my mental illness. This journey of self-discovery enabled me to go forward in ways I could never have imagined. I now want to do that for others and leave the world a better place than I found it.
Supporting people feels wonderful and the sense of relief, joy, and curiosity someone gets at the end of a profiling session is amazing to experience.
how do I book a session?
Isn't knowing your personality type like putting yourself into a box?
Truth is, we put ourselves into boxes all the time. Shallow boxes.
We create stereotypes around ideas like gender, race, height, size, etc. that we're battling every day. Personality is a window into a deeper sense of self and a way to see others beyond the boxes we already use.
We can begin to look at people for who they are and not whom we perceive them to be.
It makes the unknown, known, which allows for greater understanding, greater opportunities for connection, and far less hate in the world...because we tend to hate what we fear, and we fear what we don't understand.
We're all complex humans with complex ideas, loves, wants, and needs.
While there are commonalities of the human experiences and 16 general archetypes of brain wiring, there are still 7+ billion different personalities with different cultures, experiences, upbringings, and perspectives that need to all be seen and respected for who they are.
Personality Archetypes are simply a way of understanding your center, your north star, for when you're asked by life, your environment, and the people around you to go too far away from what God, Allah, Buddha, The Universe, whatever you turn to, has given you.
This has all gotta be wrong because I know I'm an ambivert. What's with that?
In a sense you're right, but also not quite. Let me explain.
Ambiversion is defined as being both introverted and extroverted. The fun thing is that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Carl Jung's work account for that.
There is an introverted and extraverted side to everyone.
The difference is that while you need both, we each have a natural preference for one for the other.
For example, I'm very much an introverted person but I also feel the pull to go out after a few days and explore. Some extraverts have difficulty slowing down but need to in order to take a breath and regroup.
If you pay attention to the ebb and flow of people you'll see this play out over and over again.
That's not quite "ambiversion" but more of a lesson in how to flow with our brain's need to input, process, and output. If you sign up for our e-mail list I cover this in more detail.
Why is it that sometimes I'm a "J" and other times I'm a "P" if there is only one type?
"J" and "P" stand for Judger and Perceiver, which is how we prefer to show up to the world.
Judger means a preference for bringing your decision-making process to the outside world, which often means being prepared.
Perceivers' preference is to learn in the outside world, which often means being more relaxed and ready to absorb like a sponge.
So what happens when a Judger spends time alone? They do the opposite, they spend time being more relaxed, playing, and learning on their own.
What happens when a Perceiver spends time alone? They do the opposite, they spend time organizing, preparing, and processing...deciding on their own.
Pay attention to the word "preference" as this means being a "J" or "P" is your natural preference, not a permanent state, though the preference itself, the pull to one side or the other, is permanent, but we can always grow in how we use that preference.
