4 Different Personality Types – Part 1 – Action

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.


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?
