Profiling tests sure have come a long way from my college days (30+ years ago) and the plethora of information on the Internet today is really AMAZING!!
The Child Whisperer (for my children) and Dressing Your Truth by Carol Tuttle are two great programs to start this journey of self-awareness. Both of these programs help you to visually determine which *movement* you were hard-wired to lead with, from the time you were knitted in your mother’s womb. These movements express our true nature and can not change even if we wanted them too.
Personality psychology states that around the ages of 2.5 – 3.5 years old, a child’s actual personality begins to appear, pending they are not growing up in an extremely dysfunctional environment. This is also the age range when *thought process patterns* or cognitive functions begin to emerge. There are different schools of thought on whether these processes of learning and making decisions are nature or nurture. I don’t know, but all I do know is these cognitive functions are part of our overall personality, and they are one of several reasons why two people with the same “temperaments” can understand new information and then make decisions in totally different manners.
Over the past year I discovered a powerful tool for personal awareness and growth. It is called The Car Model and was created by Personality Hacker….. Let’s just say IT IS AWESOME! Through this model you will learn how you were hardwired to make decisions & understand new information. Basically this model takes the four letter Myers-Briggs code to help an individual discover their personal “Genius Style”. The “Genius Style” then helps us become intimately acquainted with the ‘passengers’ in our car model, so we can maximize our growth potential. Each four letter code (16 total) are each quite different, so building intimacy with all of the parts of your particular car model may be one of the most satisfying and rewarding things they can do!
Personality Hacker has developed several other training programs to maximize your personal growth by using your Genius Style. They also have a fantastic mentoring program where you can consult with a ‘live’ person, which can be very handy if you are unsure of the accuracy of your profiling placement after taking the written test. Just as an FYI most written profiling tests only have a 50% accuracy rate.
