Elaine has been an ardent follower and student of personality theory since she was first introduced to the Myers-Briggs taxonomy over 20 years ago. A true Jungian, she began conducting independent research and writing about typology in 2010, shortly before beginning her collaboration with A.J. Drenth and Personality Junkie®.
Elaine’s theories and insights are responsible for shaping much of the material found in blog posts and type profiles. Along with these contributions, Elaine is skilled at helping others understand themselves and facilitating their personal growth within the context of typology. She has used this gift over the years to provide personal advice and insight to readers seeking more direct guidance.
As an INFJ, Elaine is especially passionate about depth psychology and understanding the subconscious factors that come into play with respect to psychological type. Her work has focused largely on the inferior function and its role in the individuation process. She is currently in the process of authoring a book on the INFJ personality type (anticipated publication date: January 2021) utilizing these key concepts.
