Who do you be in life? Who do you want to be in life? Are you happy being where you are being, getting what you got? Or, are you ready to make some real changes to GET what you want?  Are beliefs you learned and accepted as a child playing havoc with your life as an adult?

Are you living primarily in the “environment” and stuff just keeps happening to you?  Do you often think God, the universe or others are all conspiring against you?  Are you ready to put yourself in the driver’s seat of your life?

We Are Different: #Personality Theory Part II

Personality Theory, Personality Types, Success Strategies Coach Rhonda Robbins

We are different, I am nothing like you and you are nothing like me. #Personality Video #2 Personality Theory is only a theory until you apply it in a practical way to your life… then, it ceases to be a theory and becomes (with practice) a necessary tool for incredible relationships.

By

Personality Theory is only a theory until you apply it in a practical way to your life… then, it ceases to be a theory and becomes (with practice) a necessary tool for incredible relationships.

When we think of Personality Typing, often we think “we can’t be put into a box!”  And, if you thought that you are indeed correct.  Personality traits are broad, and we each have many of the traits.  We generally have a very strong set of traits which stands out above the rest, and then a high secondary set of traits.

With the understanding that we engage in personality study not to judge, criticize or stereo type but to come to even greater leaps in understanding ourselves, our motivation, our core needs, our “wiring” … but also of others.  With application of basic personality typing, we can know which candidate may be better suited for a particular type of position when hiring, we may know that telling a star personality a schedule on Friday for the coming week is a waste of time and breath, and so forth.

A basic underlying theory for personality training is to truly understand and accept

we are different…

I am nothing like you…

You are nothing like me…

With an enhanced understanding of our basic wiring, we can learn to celebrate our differences instead of fighting them!  We can create a rapport with others we have only ever imagined.  We can jetison our frustrations, because while we may not agree or like it, we finally understand the other people who are nothing like me!

More than a toy,

more than a “fun concept,”

taken seriously personality theory can transform every relationship you have from work to those of your children.  You will be better partner, wife, mother, father, son, daughter, boss, co-worker.  You will be a better person.

You will understand you are born with certain inherit areas of opportunity, and you will almost always be attracted to the opposite personality to “fill out” those weak areas.

Sooooo, the challenge to you is to “STOP” requiring, asking, begging and manipulated others to BE LIKE YOU, and to revel in the diversity which makes life interesting.

What is #Personality Theory – Free #PersonalityTest

Understanding Personality, Personality Training, Personality Theory, Personality Type

#Personality Theory- Free PersonalityTest. Key to unlocking human behavior…what motivates,drives, thrills or offends us

By

Personality theory dates back to 370 BC and Hippocrates, the father of modern-day medicine. Hippocrates noticed (he was a Greek physician) that people seemed to fall into 4 different categories in terms of behavior.

He theorized that this was due to the fluids (humors) in the body.  He noted that within these 4 groups there were common traits or tendencies… and thus personality theory was born.

Understanding personality is a key to unlocking human behavior … that helps us understand what motivates, drives, thrills or offends individuals.  A firm grasp of personality behavior allows us to instantly “get” the emotional needs of those we are in community with.  We are also better able to communicate and gain rapport with them, as we realize …

We are different.

I am nothing like you,

You are nothing like me.

 

4- Model personality tests and personality quizzes are easy to understand at a basic level.  You can instantly gain access to valuable relationship and communication tools with a cursory understanding of personality theory.

Not only can you gain a deeper understanding into your own behavior and attitudes, but you can also use this powerful personality knowledge to bring power and choice to others both individually and in the workplace.

In this first video of the WE ARE DIFFERENT series, you will get an overview of personality theory from its beginning through 2002.

You will gain an understanding of the development of different theories, including Freud’s “Nature” theory.

Keep in mind that the point of the personality evaluation is not to judge or label ourselves or others –  for each of us is genuinely unique. There may be similarities in the personality patterns/behaviors however, many, many other elements are factored into the complexity that is you!

Check out the hats: bit.ly/K25fcp

http://yhoo.it/K25fcp   In Phoenix, we Celebrated #Cinco de Mayo — but in Kentucky everyone turned out for the 138th Annual #Kentucky Derby and to wear hats!

I did not know that the Kentuck Derby was a big HAT event.  When I saw the hats, all I could think of were #Sanguine Stars [personality type].  No other personality type would be caught dead in those hats … and certainly not a #Melancholy Producer! 

 It was not just women in crazy, bold and bizarre hats either… men joined in, too! 

Take a look at the over-the-top Kentucky Derby hats here and let’s all celebrate and live vicariously through the Sanguine Stars…

as they embrace the embodiment of what it is to be a Sanguine Star:

  • Bold
  • Daring
  • Vivacious
  • Refreshing
  • Over-the-top
  • Loud (voice, clothing, mannerisms)
  • Attention getting
  • Story-telling
  • Funny
  • Charming
  • Spontaneous
  • Persuasive
  • Energetic

#Neuro-Science – What is your Dog Thinking?

Neuro-science, what is your dog thinking

#Neuro-Science – What is your Dog Thinking? http://bit.ly/JSH24s

By


Read article
 – Emory University researchers have developed a new methodology to scan the brains of alert dogs and explore the minds of the oldest domesticated species. Many dog lovers make all kinds of inferences about how their pets feel about them, but no one has captured images of actual canine thought processes — until now.

Very interesting.  Neuro research is being done on all levels!

#Motivation – Approach or Avoid may depend on “Handedness”

Motivation may depend on which hand is your dominant hand

Motivation – Approach or Avoid may depend on “Handedness” — could change treatments for depression and anxiety disorders

By

The way we use our hands may determine how emotions are organized in our brains, according to a new study led by Geoffrey Brookshire, a Ph.D. student in my lab at the New School for Social Research, published in PLoS ONE [1].

Motivation is a basic building block of human emotion and for decades scientists have believed that “approach” motivation is computed mainly in the left hemisphere of the brain, and “avoidance” motivation is computed mainly in the left hemisphere of the brain. By way of example:  Sword fighters of the past “approached” enemies wielding the sword in their dominant hand, and “avoided” injury by raising their shield with their nondominant hand.Humans tend to pull things toward them with their dominant hand, for instance an apple, and push away things that are obstacles (or in your way)  — a branch.

Brookshire startling results may change the way that depression and anxiety disorders are treated with brain stimulation.  Read more

Having Trouble Getting Motivated?

Success Strategies Coaching - Are You Having Trouble Getting Motivated?

Having Trouble Getting Motivated? Take a look at the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, and figure out how much stress and which stress events you have.

By

I think we all find ourselves struggling with motivation at one time or another.

There are varying reasons for not having enough energy or motivation in our lives. And, no, it isn’t because we are just lazy!

Off the cuff, here are a few reasons I can think of for not being motivated:

  • Incomplete projects (which haunt and exact a toll on us, even in our subconscious mind!)
  • Stress (too many stresses and/or directions, projects, events, tasks or people to manage or please)
  • Trying to comply with all the “SHOULDs,” “MUSTs,” “NEED-TOs,” and “HAVE-TOs”
  • Too many people plugged into us, taking our energy, not giving back
  • Not enough people, activities in our life to keep us nourished, nurtured and keeping our love banks full
  • Not having a supportive circle of friends (who are positively motivated)
  • Continually being surrounded by negative people
  • Working in a career field or a job that does not interest or energize us
  • Not eating properly, not getting correct nutrition or exercise

I think that spells out a pretty clear picture of the some of the reasons we are not motivated. If you are having trouble determining reason for stress, check out the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, and realize, even GOOD things can be stressful! The Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale is a measurement of how many stressful events have happened to you in one year and the possible effect on your physical health.

While the scale does not give an indication as to the emotional or mental impact of the stress, I believe you can make that hyper-jump yourself.

Now… how to get motivated?

  1. Look at the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale, and figure out how much stress and which stress events you have. Eliminate or neutralize the ones that are possible, and realize the others have a deadline, termination date or death sentence. For example, you will not be pregnant forever. Also important, we can be the executioner of many of them. We can choose to eradicate many of them by our choices and activities.
  2. Make a list of all incomplete projects, set a deadline for them, and begin to complete them ASAP. Not only will you feel a sense of satisfaction, you will likely feel more energized.
  3. Think of yourself as a power strip. Who is plugged into you and stripping you of precious emotional and physical energy? Evaluate your relationships, determine who is draining your energy and get rid of any deadwood. Stop the needless theft of your energy and time. Focus.
  4. Build, or enlarge your circle of supportive friends; people who are very POSITIVE and who care about you.
  5. Evaluate all the “SHOULDs,” “MUSTs,” “NEED-TOs,” and “HAVE-TOs” going in your mind or coming out of your mouth. Instead of saying, “I should ______,” substitute the word SHOULD with WANT. Now when you say, “I want to _________,” evaluate — do you really WANT to? Decide if you are feeling self-pressure or other pressure to do this thing, then choose what you really WANT to do.

Hope this helps you to evaluate some of the potential reasons you are not feeling motivated.
