When I was first introduced to the CoreMap concepts, I was mildly skeptical about its value to me personally. I’d not only studied psychometrics in my psychological training, but I’d earned income for a time designing various kinds of educational and psychological assessments. I’d led dozens of seminars using various MBTI-related materials and conducted therapy groups with all the standard psychometric and self-report tests used as prompts or initiating self-discovery. My dissertation included the development of a career decision-making assessment, and I’d used many of the available vocational guidance tools in my career and corporate coaching. I didn’t expect to find anything much new or different in the assessment arena.
But, I found gold! The Entertainer in me had been kept waiting in the wings for too much time, for inadequate reasons. And not even three days after the interpretation session with Marc, I’d stepped up to the front of the training room and hit a home run with a program I’d only watched before.
I feel like I’ve come home. I’m recognizing parts of what I’m like, of who I am, of who I like to engage with the world, as if they were long lost friends! In psychological terms, I’d call it a significant reintegration of ego-synchronicity, but what it really feels like is … I got my groove back.
