Bob Proctor – Infinite Potential

October 29th, 2009 No comments

I have a treat for you today.  I have a Bob Proctor video that is less than 10 minutes long where he talks about our infinite potential. 

He says, “the results we are getting are the ideas that we are emotionally involved with.” 

Hmmm….could that be where the good stuff and the bad stuff in our lives comes from?

I hope that you get a lot out of it!  Please retweet it if you like it.

4 Different Personality Types – Part 4

October 28th, 2009 1 comment

Albert Einstein Technical personalityThe last 3 days, I have been covering the different personality types.  Today, we are covering the last type.  Keep in mind, a person can have all the characteristics of all the types, but usually, one personality type stands out as the dominate one.  Through self improvement, personal development, and living our lives we can learn to become a better blend of all of these types to make a more ideal and well rounded personality.

If we understand these different personalities and “what it takes to float their boat”, it becomes easier to interact with them.  Better interaction means less misunderstandings.

If you are in sales, this information is very valuable as you have to relate to every personality type in their own way.  For example, if you’re tailoring your sales presentation filled with warm and fuzzy “feeling” type things for a relationships personality, the technical personality is completely turned off.  You have lost them because that’s not how they think.  This is how the Technical personality thinks. 

 

TECHNICAL PERSONALITY

This personality type is very curious.  They love surfing the net for knowledge, learning new things, and solving problems.  To them, Understanding is fun.  They enjoy puzzles, problem solving and finding solutions.  They enjoy thinking and pondering new situations and problems.  When they are noodling on their newest problem, they can become “lost” to it for long periods of time. 

They like people, but sometimes they don’t understand the unspoken rules of society.  Sometimes, the humor of “the joke” is lost to them.   They work better by themselves where their brains are free to ponder and digest the problem without the interferences of interacting and working with others.

Intelligence, justice and fairness hold a high value for them.  They desire to be correct and do things right.  They value precision and will take whatever time it takes to master the situation or problem.  They are, sometimes, oblivious to deadlines.  It is more important to solve the problem then meet a goal or deadline.  They want to find the solution and let others carry it out. 

They have a calm exterior even if they are in turmoil on the inside.  They believe their brains should manage their emotions.  They believe in order and discipline.  Their work space and their home are spartan in appearance.  Little “homey touches” are not part of their life equation. 

They are analyzers, they like to probe issues, study, invent, investigate and explorer.  They are non conforming and independent, always with a cool exterior.  A nightmare situation for them would be to appear stupid and uninformed.  In their leisure time, if they have any, they enjoy journals, mysteries, or science fiction.  They are always looking for the logical choice.  They are attracted to lines of work such as computer programing, accounting, mathematics, science, or any career that can draw logical conclusions.

A strong Technical personality can be completely baffled by the emotions of the Relationships personality, the impetus nature of the Action personality and staunch abiding of rules and time lines in the Stability personality. 

Asked to go on the trip they would be the one that took care of the research and finding the best tourist spots to check out.  You better believe, there will be a museum or two on the itinerary.  They could serve as a very knowledgeable tour guide after they had done all their research.

Albert Einstein would be a good example of this personality.

The first time I studied this information, I took the quiz and I was a very strong blend of Action and Relationship.  They were a tie for #1 in my personality traits.  I was very low in the Stability and Technical areas.  As time as gone on and I have learned and experienced life, I have become more well rounded in my personality.  I still have the action/relationship blend going for me, but I have learned to incorporate some of the Stability and Technical traits.

4 Different Personality Types – Part 3

October 27th, 2009 No comments

referee  and penalty flagToday is part 3 of the 4 part personality series.  Have you found your dominate personality yet?  If you have an organization or club, you will want this personality type to be involved.  Everything always runs smoother with their help. 

STABILITY PERSONALITY

This personality type values rules, traditions and authority.  They always have a clear idea of what people should be doing.  They want to belong.  They are detail oriented and hard workers.  They enjoy being useful, productive, and a contributor.

The enjoy caring for others and looking out for them.  They are very organized and are always prepared for the future.  They are the planners.  They live by lists and directions.  If they embrace a goal setting system they can become methodical in pursuit of those goals.

They view family and home as the core of society.  They believe it is important to have laws, rules and control.  They are the stabilizing force in any organization.  They are good at being the club secretary and minute keeper.  They make good sports officials and police officers.

Their weakness is stepping out of “the box” and it can be a challenge for them.  It is, also, difficult for them to accept ideas that are radically different and they resist change.  They have a stubborn streak.  They will change when presented with strong practical reasons for the change.  They will need their “special time” to analyze facts.  They love to do research!

They demonstrate their love in practical ways.  If you are in a relationship with a stability personality and you need a toaster, you might get one for Valentine’s Day, instead of chocolates and flowers.  They are always loyal, dependable, punctual, and trustworthy.  Structure and organization is everything to them.  They are the backbone of social systems.  They see hierarchy as vital to society, families and organizations.  They believe any leadership or authority role must be earned.  They have strong urges to conserve, plan and perpetuate.

If they are asked to go on “the trip”, they would jump at the chance to plan the route, make the reservations and plan the itinerary.  They can become easily annoyed by the Action and Relationship personalities for not respecting time lines, rules and the plans that have been made.

I am very lucky to be married to a stability/action person.  I am a relationship/action person and he is my rock.

4 Different Personality Types – Part 2

October 26th, 2009 No comments

June CleaverWelcome to part 2 of my 4 part series on personality types.  Yesterday, I wrote about the action personality.  I am sure, if you read it, you either saw yourself in that action person or someone you know.  We all know, we are each individual people.  It is not my intention to lump everyone together and say that if you have this trait, you are this personality type.  On the contrary, as we learning and grow in life and embrace self improvement, we become much more balanced individuals.   We develop and have traits from each personality type.   If you are a person who enjoys people or you are in a career position where you need to understand different personalities these 4 part series should be helpful. 

Do you remember my question at the end of yesterday’s blog post?  Have you figured out yet what Oprah and June Cleaver have in common?  What they have in common is that they share the same personality type.  Here’s a little bit about that type.

RELATIONSHIP PERSONALITY

They are all about relationships.  People, people, people!  People are much more important than things.  They desire lots of friends to share and care with.  Their integrity is very important to them.  They are authentic and unique.  The love helping others become what they can be.  They show emotions easily.  They enjoy flowers, music and romantic movies.

They love to help friends solve their problems.  They are very intuitive and their hunches are known for working well.  They have a large amount of empathy and sympathy for others.  They thrive on recognition and acceptance.

They are very good at motivating people.  They see the possibilities in others and in themselves.  Relationship people are drawn to setting goals and working in careers that involve people.  Always striving for authenticity, they want to become the best person that they can be.  Uniqueness is important, yet they can become chameleon like and shift identities to fit the situation. 

Life is a search for meaning.  Warmth and compassion flow easily and with sincerity.  They value loyalty in their relationships.  Disloyalty is perceived as a sin of epic proportions.  They are imaginative, very creative, and have lots of sensitivity to the thoughts and feelings of other people.  When you visit them in their home, it is filled with pictures of loved ones and friends.  Their homes are set up for comfort, yours and theirs.

The challenge that relationship people have is that they would rather make a friend than close a deal.  They feel compassion and empathy so strongly that they have a hard time asking their friends or business contacts the tough questions and chance running the risk of having others become “mad at them”.  This is an area that they will always have to work on and train themselves to be more assertive and not fall victim to the “relationship personality’s” Achilles heal of being “too warm and too giving”.

If you were to ask this personality to accompany you on a trip, the first question they would ask you is, “who’s going?”

Now, do you see what Oprah and June clever have in common?  Relationships people make very good friends, but you may have to share them with others as their talent for making people feel warm and accepted is always in demand.

4 Different Personality Types – Part 1 – Action

October 24th, 2009 3 comments

extreme sports for miceHave you ever wondered why some people do the things they do?  How can we all experience the same thing but react to it in so many different ways?  Every one’s personality is geared differently.  If you could understand those differences, would it make your life easier?

We are all very different, individual people.  But, having said that, there really are just 4 personality types of people.  Each one of us is, most likely, a blend of all of these 4 personalities.  But, one personality type is the dominate one.  If we can understand those different types of people and which personality is the dominate one,  it might make our interaction with people just a little bit easier.  If you are in sales, this is imperative to understand.  I am going to cover the first one today.

 
ACTION PERSONALITY

These people are not hard to spot. They crave the spotlight. They take action!  They are the adventurous personality.  They like to do things their way.  Always looking for a new frontier.  They like to explore, are bored easily, and they believe that life is a wonderful game to play.  They approach life with a “can do” attitude.  Give them a problem or challenge and they will dive right in to find the solution.  They enjoy finding new ways to deal with challenges, always looking for new solutions.  Freedom is important to them and they abhor being fenced in.  Rules that don’t make sense should be broken.  Bells are for ringing, mountains are for climbing. Life is for living!

The Action personality is more concerned about what’s happening right now than in the future.  They enjoy adventurous hobbies, impulsive behavior, if it isn’t fun – forget it!  They are the personality most attracted to extreme sports.

They can easily ignore clutter.  They are generous, sharing, and helpful.  Waiting is a horrible experience.  They love fine tools, instruments and the artist’s brush.  Easily bored and restless. 

They learn by doing and experiencing.  They are naturally competitive, witty, and charming.  Defeats are temporary.  They are an exciting personality, light hearted and joyful.  Living life with the action personality can be exciting, but frustrating.  Goal setting is important to them, but their goals should always be fresh, creative, and action oriented. 

If you were to ask this person to accompany you on a trip they would jump right on it and say “let’s go!”

If you have seen the new Star Trek movie or you are a “trekkie” from way back, Captain Kirk would be a good example of this personality type.

My next article, I will be covering the next personality type.  Here is a clue to ponder in the meantime.  What do Oprah and June Cleaver have in common?

How Can I Live the Life I Want? Tip 3

October 22nd, 2009 No comments

laughing smiley faceThe world is moving forward faster and faster.  Technology is growing so fast that it is a full time job keeping up with the changes.  It is very easy in this world of rapid changes to lose the “human touch”.    When calling a company, an automated phone systems that requires you to listen and pick the best option for what you want, is not uncommon.  Many older people find this very confusing and frustrating. When we lose the “human touch” it impacts our ability to live the life we want.  It impacts our  happiness and our sense of fulfillment that is so important to our sense of well being.

People crave the “human touch”.  Technology is now moving in a direction of connecting people to one another with different types of social media.  I know, I love my Facebook.  My family and friends and I have reconnected on Facebook. It is such a fun way to share your life with others.  The business application is, also, huge.  We want to know who we are doing business with!  Which brings me to the first tip. 

OUR NEED TO RELATE

We are not here to do it all on our own.  We are blessed by our friendships and our relationships to others.  Living is all about our connection with people.  When we do these 3 things we have more feelings of happiness and fulfillment.

1.  Offer to help others.  What value can we add for them?  We can help our neighbors, our families and our communities in many ways.  It has been proven that when we reach out to others and help them, we gain more feelings of contentment and self worth.

2.  Make ourselves accessible.  Proactively cultivate friendships with people who share our passions.  In this day and age, there are so many ways to connect with other like minded people.  We can do it through clubs, associations, Internet forums, the list goes on. 

3.  Be a friend first.  Provide massive value without expecting immediate payback.  Be a giver.  Relationships and loyalty take time, but the quickest way to receive value is to give it first.  Someone that is a model of this in the business world is Stephen Pierce.  He is an Internet marketer that believes in giving huge amounts of value.  He knows that if he gives value away for free, he will win your business.  He gives away thousands of dollars worth of knowledge every year and has become a multimillionaire in the process. That is the perfect example of “what goes around, comes around” in a positive way.

HAVE FUN

While pursuing your dreams and goals, don’t forget to have fun.  Fun breeds an atmosphere of creativity.  Fun helps relieve your stress.  If you make your business fun, you will form relationships with those that work with you. 

Don’t forget your sense of humor.  Life is too short to take things so seriously.  Most of all, don’t take yourself too seriously.  Laughter adds years to your life and improves your health.

I have a little treat for you today.  I have a little, less than 10 minutes, video for you just to help you exercise those laugh muscles.  Enjoy!  😀
