Introduction to this course on working with personality type with a look at the course objectives.
This lesson looks at personality and behavior. It looks at how an understanding of personality type will help you work with some of the challenges that you face in the workplace.
This booklet contains a questionnaire that you can use to assess your Personality Type.
A look at the behavioral preferences identified by Carl Jung that were further researched and developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Katharine Cook Briggs.
This lesson gives you further instructions about determining your Personality Type.
The booklet helps you to determine your behavioral preferences on four scales. There are two opposite preferences on each scale. The four scales deal with - where you like to focus your attention (E or I) - the way you like to look at things (S or N) - the way you like to go about deciding things (T or F) - how you deal with the outer world (J or P)
This lesson will help you to determine what energizes you and how you get your energy.  (NB The spelling of "Extraversion" is not the commonly used version but the version widely used in psychology. Extra is the Latin prefix for outside and extravert, as originally used (and spelled) by Jung, means someone who is turned outward.)
This lesson will help you to determine how you take in information from the outside world.
This lesson will help you to determine how you process information.
This lesson will help you to determine how you orientate yourself in the world.
Further information about assessing your Type and some hints and tips when working with Type.
This workbook gives more details about how Type preferences are expressed and gives a structured series of questions that helps you to evaluate what you have learned about yourself.
There are 16 Personality Types identified by looking at the four behavioral preferences. This means that you are going to be one of 16 Types, yet everyone is an individual with the capability to adapt and change according to circumstances. Type is often criticised  as "putting people into boxes" but this, itself, is a simplistic understanding of what Type is and how it works. This lesson addresses this criticism giving you a better understanding of why we look at 16 Types and why considering people being confined to boxes is inherently wrong.
Any personality type can be an effective leader. Every type is going to do it a little bit differently. This booklet looks at how each type can lead.
This lesson gives you some ways that you can consider to further your understanding of the Type preferences and get to explore it at a deeper level.
There are many people who criticize Type and its use. Often these are unjustified and unfair. This lesson gives some insights around refuting their arguments.
This lesson goes into more detail about the four mental functions and how these make up the Functional Pairs. It gives more information about each pair looking at specific characteristics and behaviors, how these arise and how these can be used to develop emotional intelligence.
Here are some questions that will test your knowledge about understanding personality type at work.

Different isn’t necessarily difficult.

We encounter different types of people every day. Everyone is unique. However, broadly speaking everyone can be categorized into different types according to their preferences and how they use them.

This short course is a standalone course for anyone interested in understanding different personality types. It will give you insights to your own preferences and how these build into your personality type.

Understanding preferences and how they are expressed will help you to appreciate differences, work with these and communicate better with others. It complements other courses that explore emotional intelligence in more depth.

Every personality type has its own specific way of communicating. Through this course, you will expand your understanding of personality and communication to build up better relationships with your team, your manager, your clients - in fact, anyone with whom your regularly interacts with. You will learn how to build trust, establish rapport, and work comfortably and productively with any personality type.

Who is the program for?

The course is for anyone who is interested in developing their understanding of behavior.

It will be of particular relevance to you if you:

  • are involved in influencing and persuading other people
  • are selling and negotiating with customers and clients
  • are a leader in a team or in a management role and seeking to influence through leading
  • have responsibilities for influencing the way people make decisions

This course will, also, be of interest to you if you have completed a Personality Type assessment in the past and would like a refresher. You may have discovered your type through a work-based training program, by completing a questionnaire or through general interest. Your Personality Type consists of four letters.  It all made sense at the time, but you have forgotten what it all means and how relevant it can be to how you engage with other people.

This course will, also, be of interest to you if you lead or manage a team and are looking at ways to build understanding and develop relationships leading to more rewarding interactions and high performance. It will give you an understanding of the relevance of type and how it can be put to work.

Requirements

  • You will be a member of a team made up of a range of people.
  • You will be a leader or a manager responsible for a number of projects involving people.
  • You will be interested in learning more about personality type.

My articles and papers on resilience have been published in international books and journals.

Teaching emotional intelligence skills is a challenge at the best of times so these courses require you to take some ACTION and put into practice what you have learnt.  I am here to support and guide you.

I hope you enjoy working to develop your resilience and your emotional intelligence and I look forward to working with you.
