How To Unlock Travel Triggers For Each Myers-Briggs® Type

Read This Before Your Travel This Thanksgiving!

How to unlock travel triggers for each Myers-Briggs® type is an uncommon way to become aware of pesky, out-of-balance personality traits. (updated 11.15.2023)

It is about traveling into wakefulness.

Would it not be fabulous if, while away, you realized a ritualized habit that is sabotaging in nature? You could observe it, figure out what triggered it, and then take time to sort through it. Of course, you may not be able to get to the bottom of it while away, but celebrate the fact that you have seen something about yourself that you had not previously recognized – this is the path to live an inspired life.

Of course, this is a bit harder if you travel over Thanksgiving to see family; trigger moments are bound to happen. Are you ready to change this behavior? If not…come back next week for a new blog; if you are ready – read on!

Travel For Betterment Means Unlocking Travel Triggers For Each Myers-Briggs® Type

CELEBRATE YOU, because this is what traveling for betterment is all about. It does not have to be a gigantic transformational moment right there on the spot. Much of the commercialized spiritual movement is about having an earth-shattering, aha moment. Please, if you get to that point, you have ignored priceless messages your spirit mind has been whispering to you for decades. I speak to this truth as my 7-year life tsunami was my reckoning moment when I realized I had been ignoring the whispers, waiting for an aha moment. Not a smart move on my part.

Taking small steps is a time to pinpoint your truth  without needing external validation or influence. I believe this is how you find your True Self, the truth of who you really are. When you find your truth, passion, and purpose follow.

A brief look at what triggers each persona. 

I hope this inspires you to take the first step.

How To Unlock Travel Triggers For Each Myers-Briggs® Type

A brief look at your type’s travel triggers. Once you are aware, you can dive in and begin to figure out, take a few small steps, to acknowledge a few things that may be holding you back. 

Recognize self-betterment as a journey of small steps. Don’t buy into the hype that you need a huge monumental shift to be a better version of yourself — that’s a big fat lie – it keeps you stuck; believe me, I know.

Active Travelers (ISTP)

Magnetic Travelers (ESTP)

You are the ultimate negotiator, but sometimes win-lose situations happen…loss can lead to success and newfound humility — a beautiful thing to realize about yourself.

Abstract Traveler (ISFP)

Playful Travelers (ESFP)

You are a happiness seeker. If someone critiques, you see them as killjoys, but maybe they have a point — think of a critique as a trigger for self-improvement.

As you travel to see the world, may each step you take be an inner calling to become your true self.” — An excerpt from my soon-to-be-published book: Unpack Your Personality: Myers-Briggs Takes a Spiritual Vacation. alt" Nina Zapala Spiritual Personality Logo"

Sensing Judging (SJ) Types: Exacting. Traditional. Advising 

Grounded Travelers (ISTJ)

You are a slave to routine, which can be iffy, especially when traveling over the holidays. The trigger is to realize things will work out, and others can manage without your routine. Breathe.

Dutiful Travelers (ESTJ)

You have zero tolerance for those who miss a scheduled, are late, or forget totally — this creates massive anxiety. Guess what? You don’t control others, which is triggering — the lesson is to learn to let it go…you will be surprised how freeing this feeling is.

Kindly Travelers (ISFJ)

You prefer schedules and uncomplicated, everything in its place – which becomes an overwhelming task. The challenge is to let go – with challenge comes growth.

Attentive Travelers (ESFJ)

Inquisitive Travelers (ENTP)

You don’t know it all. Stop thinking for a minute and let someone else have a say, a trigger that will help you see the world in a whole new light — think of the new possibilities and opportunities this will bring.
