Hi Noelle, long time no see, since July huh? nice to have you aboard.
Please, read not only the translation, but the explanations (in blue and italics, in this posting).
If you are out-of-preference on one or more of the relevant facets, make sure to focus on using approaches and behaviours related to those out-of-preference facets.
(Se você tem facetas/aspectos contrários ao conceito global, certifique-se de focar em usar abordagens que tenham a ver com o conceito [GLOBAL] em si.)
(No exemplo pg 5, se você é dado à "INTROVERSÃO", mas acha que é mais pra sociável - simpático, harmonioso (congenial) - de apresentar as pessoas etc.
Então use as abordagens que as pessoas extrovertidas usam).
If you are in-preference, ask someone at the opposite facet pole for help in using that approach or read a description of that pole to get clues for modifying your behaviour. Once you have a good approach, resist shifting back into your comfort zone.
"Se você tem as preferência dentro do/que concordam com certo conceito global peça ajuda àqueles de perfil oposto ao seu ou leia a descrição daqueles que
estão nesse pólo para obter dicas de como modificar seu comportamento. Uma vez que você tenha (feito/aprendido) uma boa abordagem, resista à mudança de
volta à sua zona de conforto.
Detalhe: lá no teste diz tem: HOW THE FACETS CAN HELP YOU BE MORE EFFECTIVE. Sometimes a particular situation calls for using a less-preferred part of your personality. Your facet results can make it easier for you to temporarily adopt a less-natural approach. Begin by identifying which facets are relevant and which poles are more appropriate to use. "
Isto é, a sua frase estava fora de contexto, na verdade faça o que a frase diz, em situações em que você julgue que vai facilitar a sua vida (se não vai soar falso, e o resultado será o oposto do que você pretende ou você mesma não se sentirá bem).
pg 4 - Step II
The Step II tool describes some of that complexity by showing your results on five different parts or facets of each of the MBTI instrument’s four
pairs of opposite preferences shown below.

MBTI Step II Concepts
There are a number of new concepts introduced in Step II that are not part of MBTI Step I, including:-
Each of the original four preference pairs (dichotomies) is broken down into five facets. Whilst the facets reflect different aspects of the main dichotomy, they do not combine to the whole of the original preference. In other words, you can not say that, for example, a preference for Thinking over Feeling is simply a combination of the five Thinking facets (Logical, Reasonable, Questioning, Critical and Tough).
Whilst in MBTI Step I, each of the preference pairs is considered to be a polar opposite, some of the Step II facets are more "trait- like" - i.e. there may be degrees of strength or aptitude.
Any individual taking Step II is likely to find some of the facets to be aligned to the overall preference (in preference, e.g. preference for the Logical facet and an overall Thinking preference); others may be more flexible or variable (mid zone, e.g. no clear preference for either the Concrete or Abstract facet despite an overall Intuition preference); and there may be some facets that are opposite to the overall preference (out of preference, also called OOPS, e.g. a preference for the Intimate over the Gregarious facet despite an overall Extraversion preference)
So, in the example of page five you can see that the person highlited "INTROVERSION", hence in "RECEIVING" the right side was considered
"in preference" so he/she had to choose from 1 to 5 points (five being the maximum and zero or one to both sides midzone).
Should he/she opted for EXTRAVERSION it would be the other way, would appear in the "INITIATING" trait (left side with the blue colour and under
EXTRAVERSION the words "in-preference", that is, the "RECEIVING" traits (reserved, low key, are introduced) would be regarded now as out-of-preference.
INTRAVERSION and EXTRAVERSION would be the "overall" (geral/global) preference, and the five traits under it would be the "facets" (facetas, lados/aspectos do conceito (par EXTRA/INTRAVERSION)
