Helloooo April 2018! Thank you for coming! We welcome the Springtime temps, and, yes, even the rain you are famous for, because we know that April Showers Bring May Flowers! April brings to mind 1952’s “Singin’ in the Rain”………surely one of the greatest and most wonderfully memorable films of all time. What a fun, catchy tune about a great way to embrace a rainy day! Whether you hum, sing or whistle that song, it’s sure to bring a smile! Give it a try!
P-E-R-S-O-N-A-L-I-T-Y ! ♦ WHAT’S YOUR TYPE?!
Personality. Yep! Everybody’s got one! Learning about and recognizing different personality traits can be a lot of fun. What’s more, it can lead to understanding yourself and others better, ultimately enhancing and improving your relationships, both personally and professionally.
Research on personality traits is vast and extensive. The insight gained on this topic from the studies conducted by Robert A. Rohm, Ph. D. is what we would like to share.
When Dr. Rohm noticed patterns in his observations of some major personality tendencies in people, he wound up developing an incredible system to categorize personality types called D-I-S-C Personality Profiles.
Dr. Rohm’s system starts by identifying personality styles in two main categories. (See illustrations below)
1. Internal Focus:
Task-Oriented or People Oriented
2. External Focus:
Outgoing or Reserved
From there, it categorizes four primary personalities types, and then a key descriptive word for each type that begins with the Personality Profiles System letters D, I, S or C.
For example, a person that is Outgoing and Task-Oriented is defined as a “D” personality. The key descriptive word is Dominant. Other descriptive words that also begin with “D” are Direct, Demanding, Decisive, Determined and Doer.
Sound interesting? Want to find out your personality type? Head on over to Dr. Rohm’s website! (Link below) He has an abundance of resources on the principles of his D-I-S-C System, many of which are free. He also authored a book about his system, entitled “Positive Personality Profiles”. It is an excellent read!
