Is Personality Profiling Important

Last Update: May 30, 2017

Bo Tipton posted a question asking us what are our colours.

I had replied with links to a few of the sites I have used with my school staff to do some personality profiling.

Several people have shown an interest in checking out their personality profiles, so I am going to share two of the popular ones that I have used over the years with my school staff.

The reason I did personality profiling in my school was to acknowledge that there are no right or wrong personalities, we are just different.

We process information and react to situations according to our personality "type". Knowing that information can be very helpful when dealing with a large number of people.

As affiliate marketers, we are appealing to a large number of people with different personalities.

Bo highlighted the fact that we should keep that in mind when we write our posts.

Make sure that you appeal to "the thinkers", "the planners", "the action-oriented people", and the "people-people".

What colour are you? I am blue.

(@Magic123 from WA indicated she has been a True Colours trainer for 10 years. You might want to get in touch with her for greater information)

Another good personality profiler is Carl Jung's Personality Analysis which is based on Meyer's - Briggs work.

http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality

The Meyer's Briggs profile will have us understanding the "sensing", "intuitive", "feeling" and "thinking" side of ourselves and others.

What are your four main personality indicators. I am an INFP.

It would be fun to see how similar and dissimilar our WA community is.

Both of the sites I listed above will give you more information about each of the personality profilers and will lead you to other sites as well.

Enjoy and consider sharing your profile.

I took the test at the link you posted and got 97% blue! Is that really high? I was also 80% green and then lesser amounts of orange and gold. This does not surprise me since blue is my favorite color, followed by green! I don't like orange and gold.

I find this sort of thing fascinating. I am thinking about what my co-workers seem to be and my husband. It helps me understand them.

Absolutely it helps to know what your spouse is!!!!!!

You know the "Men are from Mars" theory...sometimes it is just a difference in personalities.

97% blue is very high. You have to be a truly compassionate and caring person with that high a blue rating!!!!!

80% green makes you a serious thinker.

People LOVE you because you are so caring.

I am right, aren't I?

That is what I am told. It is strange though. Everyone says I am so nice and such a good friend but most of my friends drift away. I don't have many friends! I have had horrible falling outs with friends also...I think I am too nice and tolerate awful behavior in some people and keep trying to make a relationship work when I should be better at protecting myself and just saying no.

Ironically, unlike most females I know I have never been cheated on though or had a messy break up with a boyfriend/divorce etc! It seems so odd. I had only amicable break ups with boyfriends before I got together with my husband yet I have had horrible break ups with friends who suddenly act like I am horrible.

Everyone else I know has had that happen with guys and has more girlfriends than I do. I seem backwards. It is troubling sometimes since I feel absolutely jinxed in friendships!

Hi Jessica,

Maybe your husband is meant to be your main friend in this lifetime.

My closest friends are family members.

I was too busy raising my children and running my schools to form close friendships with other gals.

I am okay with that.

Did you read Vera's post today? I love quote from Bob Marley. It is a good one to remember.

All the best to you, my friend.

Thank you!!!!

Yes, having everyone knowing that each and everyone of us was valued and had something good to contribute was important to me.

That applied to staff and students.

Enjoyed this, Susan. I have done personality types many times before but this was a little different. I'm a BLUE too and ESFJ type, whatever that means :)) Thank you :)

You are most welcome. It is worth the read to followup on your ESFJ.

You will find lots of things about yourself that make sense.

(You likely already know lots about yourself, anyway!!!)

Thank you for visiting and commenting.

Cheers,

Susan

Susan, this is a great follow up post on a very intriguing question. And something worth delving deeper into..

Another book that I might recommend that explores the "sensing", "intuitive", and "thinking" side of ourselves through Neuro linguistic programming is "Frogs into Princes" by Richard Bandler and John Grinder.
