Recognize Strengths and Appreciate Differences
Personality Dimensions® is about understanding yourself and others so you can be more effective in your relationships, your work or school ... your life.
Everyone is different ... we come in all varieties and understanding our own values, strengths, joys and stressors and those of everyone we interact with provides a great foundation for communication. Knowing some of the ways people are different assures us that we are okay in our own uniqueness and that we aren’t alone in some of our idiosyncrasies.
Personality Dimensions® translates complex personality theory into everyday language. It creates a framework for understanding – not a pigeonhole. You will recognize temperament patterns that you are comfortable with and those of people that you know, but it is not about putting people into a box. Identifying differences and similarities through Personality Dimensions® doesn’t determine our behaviour – we make those choices. We may be strongly inclined to act in certain ways but we each can decide how we will behave.
Most people find the experience of discovering their natural inclinations to be both very invigorating and self-affirming. It can also be a real eye-opening experience! Understanding your natural tendencies can let you consciously change your behaviours without changing who you are. It will give you the energy and confidence to develop beyond your natural self.
Personality Dimensions® is the latest evolution in presenting Personality Temperament Theory. It builds on research conducted in Canada for over two decades, and the foundations established by the work of Carl Jung, David Keirsey, Linda Berens, as well as a history of Temperament that spans 25 centuries.
The Personality Dimensions® system utilizes a convenient card sort and short questionnaire to reveal your temperament preference. In addition to being the first Temperament assessment to incorporate the Introversion/Extraversion dichotomy, Personality Dimensions® also uses four colours along with short descriptors and symbols to represent the Temperament preferences: Inquiring Green, Organized Gold, Authentic Blue, Resourceful Orange. These combined aspects create a common language of understanding of yourself and others.
