When a relationship ends, whatever the reason, it can be hard to let go and move forward. It might even be tempting to minimize what went wrong and idealize the other person. This could cause you to drown in regret, to resist getting on with your life, or even be tempted to revive the relationship, even if that wouldn’t be good for you or isn’t possible.
It can be tempting to try to make sure your test results come out the way you want them. Maybe you have preconceived ideas about a certain DISC type and want to be that type, or you think your boss is looking for a certain type to put on an exciting new project that you’d love to be part of. So you may try to achieve the results you desire, even if they aren't strictly accurate.
For many Introverts, networking is a dirty word. It evokes visions of organized networking events; introducing oneself to stranger after stranger; public speaking; and any number of unnatural, nightmarish tasks that would almost make visiting the dentist seem like a pleasure trip.
The Enneagram is one of the most complex personality systems, so it can be confusing to know how to even approach it. Though it’s up to you how to use it and how deep to go, there are several things you can do (and not do) to make your experience more helpful and less overwhelming.
If you’re looking for your dream job, your ideal career path or simply your best next step, the DISC assessment can help. DISC is a relatively simple personality test that tells you how you approach tasks and interact with people in the workplace. As such, it can give you an idea of your career strengths as well as areas that may not come as naturally to you. With this knowledge in hand, you can target your job search to roles that are a better match for your personality.
How can you improve family relationships by understanding personality type? Well, the important word here is “understanding.” We all want, even need, to be understood. And with understanding comes acceptance. So many problems can be caused by failure to communicate effectively and misreading each other.
When we have a better understanding of each others’ personality types, we’re more likely to make sense of our family members’ words, actions and motivations, and less likely to take or give offense.
