What response does the statement in the image below evoke in you?
I saw this advertisement hanging in the Spokane, Washington airport.
I laughed out loud. As I shuddered.
To me, this advertisement evokes chills. And when I asked my husband, “How does this make you feel?” He answered, “It’s a nightmare.”
As people who prefer Judging, we are very comfortable with and seek structure, closure, decisions, organization, schedules etc. To me, an itinerary is not meant for changing! This advertisement completely back fires on me.
I’d love to hear what someone who prefers Perceiving thinks or feels after seeing that image. People who prefer Perceiving enjoy keeping options open, thrive on many options and spontaneity. Perhaps the above advertisement was designed by someone like this? And is more effective for someone who prefers Perceiving?
Though I can see how someone like me might be enticed by the tantalizing picture of tossing structure to the wind, overturning decisions, and messing with the schedule.
But then I start to twitch just a little bit, and I realize my preference is pretty clear.
So, what are your thoughts?
Do you prefer plans, schedules, closure on decisions?
Or do you prefer open-ended, spontaneity with lots of options to choose from?
