Understand yourself and how toyou can overcome Stargardts via personality types

Recently I've been reading  about the BCTI personality types as part of a self discovery process.  Going through this process, it made me realize that although trauma comes in many forms, different personalities may deal with it in  differing methods.

Although I'm still trying to understanding  how each personality affects the way we overcome  our own psychological mindset.  (16 types in total)  As an ENFP (extroverted, intuitive, feeling, perceiver)  I have an innate optimistic view that is built within my nature.  In addition, it makes it much easier for me to look at this in a bigger picture sense and by contemplating questions and constant self development, I have the ability to work through coping with life with Stargardts and the associated psychological impacts it had in my life.

N types
All intuitive types have a much stronger ability to rationalize or work through their own logic/feeling and finding balance within their lives.  It would be most likely be a question of when and how but not if they can or not.  It is a part of the intuition characteristic to be able to rationalize and see beyond the present.

S Types,
This is a more grounded type of personality type who focuses on the present.  I've yet to fully explore how this type work through their own identity and doubts that is brought on by considerations such as Stargardt's.   I suspect that this group of people may need outside help and structure in order to help them cope with the damages and disappointments brought on by having Stargardt's.

One things for sure, there are different ways of being at peace with oneself.    Perhaps it might be worthwhile looking at what kind of personality type you or your child are and  think about how you can utilize your best traits  to help you become more comfortable in your own skin.

This is also particularly helpful when trying to understand what may be your strongest characteristic and how you can use that to your advantage and utilize your best traits to help find your place in a sighted world.
