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!

It was Star-Sanguine Heaven at the 138th Kentucky Derby Where the Horses Competed with the Hats

Sanguine personalities at the kentucky derby in crazy hats

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

Kick Butt in Your Relationships with #PersonalityTraining

Personality Training - Personality theory

#personality theory is more than theory… understanding personalities can transform your life, your relationships and your business.

By

You will begin to better understand others, as you begin to understand yourself.

When we learn how we are wired, WERE wired from birth, and what our natural tendencies and traits are the entire world of communication and relationships open up to us.  We begin to communicate differently to “GET” the results we are looking for.

Instead of being baffled by the way in which a person behaves, “we GET it!”

Gaining a firm grasp of personality theory and being able to apply it to your life will change the way you think and the way you do business.

Listen to what Andrew Alex, Phoenix Personal Injury Attorney, has to say about the impact personality theory has had on his life.

Attend  Saturday’s free GCNLP’s training to find out more about #Personality Theory and its application to your daily life.

Rhonda’s 2010 Personality Principles for Life

Personality Principles to Live By from Rhonda Robbins - Phoenix Life Coach
By

Personality Principles to Live By from Rhonda Robbins - Phoenix Life CoachHaving an understanding of your personality type enables you to understand yourself and other better.

Below are my 2010 Principles based on Understanding Yourself and Others:

  • I am nothing like you –   you are nothing like me!!!!I accept that fact as a “reality.”  WYSIWYG  (what you see is what you get) – accepting WIS (what is so)
  • I do not attempt to change or control you. I accept you for who you are.  WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) – accepting WIS (what is so)
  • I accept who you are and what is so, or I walk away!!!
  • I acknowledge I am not always going to get “answers,” “closure” or “understanding” of circumstances, people or events.  WYSIWYGacceptingWIS
  • I admit that there are times when I must accept “what is so,” give up my “need-to-understand,” or be “right” and simply “move on” for the sake of everyone involved.   I can be “right” or I can be in “relationship.”  I must decide which is most important to me.  WYSIWYGaccepting  WIS
  • Understanding my own personality “validates” and “frees” me to passionately be me, to make decisions centered on my well-being without guilt, fear, remorse or compulsion of others.
  • I omit the words “should,” “must” and “need to” from my vocabulary.  I decide what is right for me.  I decide my potential and path each day. Instead, I want, I choose, I decide
  • Understanding my personality weaknesses does not give me “license” act in my weaknesses to the detriment of others or myself.  That’s how I am, that’s it! (is deleted from my speech) I stop using it as an excuse to act out, act up and alienate others.
  • Understanding my personality weaknesses give me opportunity to work on strengthening my weakness, refining myself, my character and integrity.
  • Accepting the challenge to work on my weakness helps me to reach my full potential as a human being.
  • I live my life passionately, freely being who I was born to be.
  • I am happy being me. I love my life.  I love me.
