Leadership and Pressure Prompting
When you Google Pressure Prompting, you won't come up
with the vital information I'm going to share with you
today. Most of what I write is 'prompted' by my
experience with people everyday. You might say, it's
pressure prompted. And you would be entirely correct.
What is pressure prompting?
This term is used in the lexicon of the Myers-Briggs
Type Indicator to indicate a facet of preference.
Preference being a pre-wired tension that exists in us
from ensoulment to prefer--when given a choice--one
thing over another.
Therefore, a polarity exists between those people who
have preferences for 'early-starting' as it's called, or
those who are 'pressure-prompted.'
You might say that pressure-prompted is the opposite of
early-starting and I think you know what that means?
Now, most (especially those who prefer early-starting)
people call us 'pressure-prompted' folks,
For some reason in the west, we have this habitual
manner of labeling things as 'pejorative' when it's
really just a difference.
I would guess about 60% of the population is
pressure-prompted. I can't say for sure, it's just a
guess. However, the reason I point this out is to help
you understand there are a LOT of us out there who
prefer to 'take in information' to solve problems,
versus 'decide' to solve problems.
Yes, it's really that simple, and it's not.
People who have an extraverted perceiving function and
it's this group of types:
ENTP (start with my own first)<G>
All of these types are by nature, pressure prompting in
terms of their preferences for taking in information to
solve problems. Now, all those introverted types have
pressure-prompted 'lieutenants' rather than
pressure-prompted generals like the extraverts. However,
regardless of lieutenant (auxillary function in MBTI
lingo), or general (dominant function)...we all pretty
much 'take in information' to solve problems.
Now, I hope you see, this is a heck of lot different
than being a procrastinator?
We're not procrastinators, anymore than you
early-starters are neurotic? Ok, maybe I won't go that
far, but you know what I mean.
To make this real...recently I was working with a client
as their sponsor, which is where I take a position of
PAAR (power, accountability, authority and
responsibility) for someone's outcomes. In this short 25
minute session, you can see how understanding
pressure-prompting is vital for efficient, effective and
