Did You Spot Their Primary Personality?

During the last T4TWs of 2018, we looked at recognising and accommodating each of the four Primary Personalities (PP) for better mutual outcomes; something of significant importance when your emotional or financial wellbeing is at risk.

Christmas and the New Year gives everyone a golden opportunity to reunite with the wider family circle, meet new friends, and spot the COOL/TELLER; WARM/TELLER; COOL/ASKER; and, WARM/ASKER.

Millions of people have been profiled over the past 80+ years with each group representative of a certain percentage of the total population.

To identify your own, or anyone else’s, PP just ask yourself these two simple questions:

1)    Do we tend to freely display our natural emotions OR do we tend to guard them?

2)    Do we tend to tell people what we want and what to do OR do we tend to request help and assistance?

If you answered question 1) … tend to freely display our natural emotions”, you are predominantly WARM. If you answered “… tend to guard natural emotions”, you are predominantly COOL.

If you answered question 2) “… tend to tell people what we want and what to do”, you are predominantly a TELLER. If you answered “… tend to request help and assistance”, you are predominantly an ASKER.

Put the two answers together and you have identified Primary Personality.

Look back at the last BLOGS (and the titles on the top of this page) to remind yourself how to modify your behaviour to effectively accommodate people just like you, as well as others who are different from you.

Your emotional and financial wellbeing depends on it!
