Join certified Myers-Briggs facilitator (and Jessie's dad) Joe Gurkoff for an informative session to learn more about your Myers-Briggs personality type. During the 3-hour session, participants will take an official Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test and review the highlights of various characteristics of the personality types.
"The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people's lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment."

Host: Reina Kahn
Family Event, recommended for children 10+ (rigorous hike!)
Maximum of 15 people total.
Please indicate number of participants.
Explore the mountain that what biologist E.O Wilson described as one of the worlds rare biodiversity hot spots. Reina who is on the Board of Directors of San Bruno Mountain Watch will guide you on a 2 mile hidden local trail up a rigorous climb to the ridge of the mountain for a 360 degree view of San Francisco, Mount Diablo, and the south Bay. We can then have a short picnic/snack break at the peak with the majestic view all around. Then we stroll down zig-zagging oak forests to witness the native flora and perhaps catch a spotting of a coyote, owl, rabbits, butterflies and more. On the hike Reina will describe the history of the mountain, including the native tribes that inhabited it, how it was almost signed away to be completely flattened and point out endemic plants and butterflies that still call it home.
