Still waiting for your "real" life to start?

I’ve helped millions begin transforming their experience of life.

Let’s find your path.

Michael Caloz
    The Mindful Myers-Briggs Coach

Are you a future-oriented, multi-passionate big-thinker (an 'N' type in Myers-Briggs)?

Let’s take you from indecision, overwhelm, and stuckness ➡️ substantial impact, clear purpose, and stimulating connection.

I’ve coached hundreds of people to transform their lives—from Fortune 500 leaders, to yoga teachers, to data scientists, to people who had no idea what they wanted to do with their lives. 

My specialty is 'N' types in Myers-Briggs. I'm especially experienced with ENTP's & INTP's, and I work with a lot of INFJ's, INTJ's, ENFJ's, and ENFP's too.

People who have awesome ideas but don't end up following through (or staying focused) on them.

People who have so much potential but struggle to make the impact they want to be making on the world—leaving them feeling jaded, overwhelmed, or frustrated.

Sound like you?

  • You have endless amazing ideas but trouble focusing down to the best one and taking real action on it. You overthink everything (even choices that "should" be easy like which restaurant to eat at).
  • You know you have so much potential, but you struggle with inconsistent motivation & energy. You live with depression and/or anxiety. You want to find/create your deepest purpose—one that really lights you up.
  • You’re into lifehacking & productivity (Tim Ferriss, James Clear,  Andrew Huberman, Sam Harris, etc.). But you feel burnt out trying to follow all that advice. You really wish you could find the one thing that would finally work.
  • You highly value rationality. You’re probably an atheist, and you might feel nihilistic at times.  Or, maybe you've dabbled in Buddhism, meditation, or psychedelics (or you're curious about those).
  • You hate small talk and you love going deep. So you often feel lonely. It’s hard to find “your people” and make great friends. You have high standards for yourself and others, and you wish for a community where you could really belong.

Plus, employees and entrepreneurs from 6 continents—in industries as diverse as crypto, government, education, tech startup, health & wellness, and beyond.

My client list includes executives & founders, product managers, teachers, doctors, consultants, artists, coaches, grad school students, data analysts, a librarian, a zookeeper, and more.

I’ve helped millions start changing their lives.

Myers-Briggs is just the beginning (we can even skip it if it's not right for you).

Over a million people a year—from nearly every country—take my Myers-Briggs test (often referred to as "the Michael Caloz test") to find their personality type. 

That’s a huge step toward better understanding what you need to feel energized and motivated.

But you're a complex human, and your Myers-Briggs type is just one part of your story.

For a personal growth path to be truly effective, it must be customized. That’s why I’ve studied a variety of coaching modalities—because everyone's different, and I don't want to give you cookie-cutter solutions.

Business + Mindfulness. Thinking + Feeling.

I'm a highly rational Thinker-type (and a skeptic at heart) who studied computer science and worked in management consulting.

But I also lived in Japan, deeply studied Buddhism, and actively pursued existential awakening for over a decade.

Thanks to that blended life experience, my style is a unique mix of East & West—analytical, research-backed psychology, and somatic, feelings-oriented mindfulness.

The trick to real growth is not just knowing answers in your mind. It's deeply experiencing the truth of them—feeling it in your body.

I offer an uncommon blend of coaching, counseling, & mentoring.

Unlike many life coaches or executive coaches, I also have three years of comprehensive training in psychological counseling.

Plus, I can offer mentorship (i.e., specific advice based on my own journey) in areas like:

  • Succeeding in the world of tech (Agile, product management, UX, game design);
  • Promoting DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) and being a more confident, resilient, effective ally (especially as a straight white guy);
  • Dealing with the nihilism of atheism and finding meaning & motivation in life;
  • Learning how to make friends as an adult, deepen your connections, and improve your marriage/relationships (including ethically non-monogamous ones);
  • Going from overthinking to confident decision-making, and from endless unfocused interests to finding your dream career & designing your life purpose.

To help overcome your most frustrating challenges, I'll pull in the right technique at the right time:

The world's most-respected modality for executive & life coaching, used by the leaders of over half the Fortune 500. Through Co-Active, we’ll explore you as a whole person (both home & work life)—with curiosity rather than judgment.

Hakomi

This changed my life. Hakomi is a somatic counseling practice integrating Western psychotherapy, Eastern mindfulness, and cutting-edge neurobiology. It’s like looking at the underlying structure of your mind (and entire nervous system) with a magnifying glass—to understand how you work at a deep level.

Myers-Briggs

This is all about how you take in information and how you process it. Knowing your type helps you make better decisions, use your innate superpowers, and get re-energized when you feel drained.

Positive Intelligence

Based on rigorous scientific research conducted at Stanford on hundreds of CEO's and elite athletes, Positive Intelligence builds the muscle of mental fitness—to improve performance, emotional wellbeing, and reduce feelings like overwhelm and frustration.

I weave in a variety of other modalities as well, including:

  • Brené Brown’s Brave Leaders framework
  • DISC
  • StrengthsFinder
  • Sparketype
  • Four Tendencies
  • Enneagram
  • Agile / Lean
  • R-CS Re-Creation of the Self
  • Nonviolent-communication (NVC)
  • Meditation & mindfulness techniques from Buddhism and a variety of other lineages

Clients are often pleasantly surprised when I tie together ideas from multiple systems and modalities for them.

(For example, someone might appear to be a certain Myers-Briggs type. But, our Hakomi & Enneagram work might have revealed that there's a deeper truth underneath that's been covered up by years of trying to live up to parents' or society's priorities. Then, we can work to surface that deeper self using techniques from, say, Positive Intelligence & R-CS).

Other Projects:

Myers-Briggs Personality TestWant to better understand who you are? My test goes deeper, beyond the usual "do you prefer staying home or going to a party?" This test delves into the cognitive functions and the fuller complexity of Myers-Briggs (yes, it's possible to be both introverted and extroverted depending on the situation!).
Blog: Synthesizing & Simplifying ComplexityI write on a variety of topics for N types—centering around mindful personal growth, habits, mindset, & more. I also enjoy simplifying complex topics from social justice, to COVID safety, cooking, communication, and beyond.
Cryptocurrency: How it works and why it's important (transforming society, making money, and more)What exactly are Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the thousands of other cryptocurrencies out there? How do they really work? Do they have real value, or are they just "made up"? Why are they important? This series is for everyone from complete novices to people already trading crypto who want to understand it more deeply. It's possible to make a lot of money here, but it's also easy to lose a lot if you don't truly understand it. Crypto isn't only important for investing, though—I believe it should be very exciting to social justice advocates as well.
Intro to Race in America for White PeopleThis is a non-political introduction to how race works in this country: where it came from and how it factors into America today. This is not at all about political correctness, and I'm firmly against shaming people. It's my attempt to explain a complex topic to other white people with clarity and kindness.
Living with the Pandemic: Synthesizing the most important advice from science and psychology on staying physically and emotionally safeI'm not a medical professional, but I was frustrated by all the misinformation and confusing advice out there on COVID-19. So, I did a lot of research (synthesizing hundreds of articles) and created this series of posts with everything you need to know from how to keep a "bubble" or "pod" safe, to which specific masks are best, to the latest information about the virus "variants" and vaccines.
