In The Politics of Type from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, partner of Buffalo-based P22 Type Foundry, Inc., Carima El-Bahairy breaks down the relationship between political campaign typography and campaign results. From Abraham Lincoln to Richard Nixon to Barack Obama to the 2016 Presidential Candidates, El-Bahairy presents an analysis of the effectiveness of various graphic identities employed on campaign buttons, bumper stickers and logos. She even predicts some 2016 winners based on their logos...time will tell!
Astrology is a widely misused and misunderstood field of knowledge. Astrology can neither be used to predict future events, nor to assess your degree of morality or intelligence, nor to indicate whom you might become friends or lovers with. The zodiac has nothing to do with star constellations. Your solar sign and rising sign might be completely irrelevant to your personality features. Astrology can give a very detailed view over what are personality features, and which environmental stimulations you give high or low priorities to.
Jungs Type Indeks er et system som bygger på Carl Gustav Jung sin ide om å forstå hvordan ulike mennesketyper foretrekker å ta avgjørelser, planlegge livet sitt, lære nye ting og hente energi. JTI gir grunnleggende innsikt i relasjonspsykologi og er et verktøy som viser hvordan mennesker er forskjellige, og hva det betyr for kommunikasjon, samspill og ledelse i prosjekter og i hverdagen. Tone Pernille bruker dette verktøyet i teambuildingssammenheng for å bevisstgjøre og verdsette forskjellighetene i team som jobber sammen til daglig.
