I bet we all have taken those personality tests online or in school or for a prospective employer that is supposed to help us, and them, to better understand our natural tendencies and strengths.
It can be valuable and fun information to have but kind of dry and impractical. What do you really take away from those tests that you can apply and use to improve your quality of life?
A lot of the time I wind up judging those parts of myself as things I
wish I could change. I would often look at the qualities of the other types
and yearn to be more like them. And be honest... haven't you ever fudged an answer to a question because you didn't want to be known for that trait? uh huh... me too... so much for accuracy.
Recently, I discovered a way of profiling personalities so unlike what's being offered at any of the other personality tests online.
Years ago I paid money for it, but now it's being offered for FREE!
It's very easy to follow and relate to and it offers a uniquely deeper understanding of your true nature and will show you how to best use it to your advantage for improved relationships, better parenting, having a successful career and you'll even feel more confident in your clothes.
I think everyone should have the benefit of feeling acknowledged for who they truly are and also have the insight of learning their inherent gifts and talents and then give themselves permission to be their natural self.
The real gift is that you will learn to embrace and appreciate even those personality traits that you have judged to be faults, weaknesses, conflicts or annoyances & learn to respect others for the same.
You rarely see any personality tests online that go into such detail as describing traits such as behavior tendencies, physical features, body language or interactions and expressions... even doodling!
from other personality tests online is that it's presented as an
hour-long interactive video. So you can just sit back taking in the
wisdom and insights that are offered and make your own assessment because who knows you better than you?
The free video series is a great place to start, and having the companion books are really helpful to have so I highly recommend them too.
Can you see how helpful having the knowledge of your energy profile can be as a spouse, a parent, an employer or employee? I actually have the ability now to study a person's face and body language to get a pretty clear picture of their Type and anticipate their natural behaviors and reactions.
Curious about my Type?... Well, I'm a Type 4...thought I was a Type 2 until Carol herself told me I was a Type 4! A funny story that I share with you here (with Before and After pics :) Apparently it's a common mistake for 4's to make. Downplaying their boldness so they can blend in meanwhile denying their true nature. Omg...guilty as charged!
It's been quite a revelation in my life and how I view myself, plus I also did the do-it-yourself beauty makeover Dressing Your Truth and now my wardrobe and hair and whole look has changed and I'm actually getting all kinds of compliments.
