Personality Dimensions ® | 性格透視 ®

Recognize Strengths and Appreciate Differences

Personality Dimensions® is about understanding yourself and others so you can be more effective in your relationships, your work … your life.  Everyone is different … we come in all varieties and understanding our own values, strengths, joys and stressors and those of everyone we interact with provides a great foundation for communication. Knowing some of the ways people are different assures us that we are okay in our own uniqueness and that we aren’t alone in some of our idiosyncrasies.

Personality Dimensions® translates complex personality theory into everyday language. It creates a framework for understanding – not a pigeonhole. You will recognize temperament patterns that you are comfortable with and those of people that you know, but it is not about putting people into a box. Identifying differences and similarities through Personality Dimensions® doesn’t determine our behaviour – we make those choices. We may be strongly inclined to act in certain ways but we each can decide how we will behave. Most people find the experience of discovering their natural inclinations to be both very invigorating and self-affirming. It can also be a real eye-opening experience! Understanding your natural tendencies can let you consciously change your behaviours without changing who you are. It will give you the energy and confidence to develop beyond your natural self.

Personality Dimensions® is the latest evolution in presenting Personality Temperament Theory. It builds on research conducted in Canada for over two decades, and the foundations established by the work of Carl Jung, David Keirsey, Linda Berens, as well as a history of Temperament that spans 25 centuries.

The Personality Dimensions® system utilizes a convenient card sort and short questionnaire to reveal your temperament preference. In addition to being the first Temperament assessment to incorporate the Introversion/Extraversion dichotomy, Personality Dimensions® also uses four colours along with short descriptors and symbols to represent the Temperament preferences: Inquiring Green, Organized Gold, Authentic Blue, Resourceful Orange. These combined aspects create a common language of understanding of yourself and others.

辨識強項和欣賞不同之處

性格透視®旨在讓你了解自己和別人,使你的關係、工作及生活上更得心應手。每個人都是不同的……我們形形色色,了解自己的價值觀、長處、快樂、壓力來源以及與我們互動的每個人能為溝通奠定良好基礎。知道一些人們的不同之處可確保我們對自己的獨特性感到自在,以及我們在某些特質上並不孤單。

性格透視®將複雜的性格理論轉化為日常語言,它創建了一個框架讓我們認識——而不是局限地歸類。你會辨識出你和你認識的人所感到自在的脾性模式,但這並不是要侷限一個人的特質。通過性格透視®辨別異同之處不代表能決定我們的行為——是我們自己做出的選擇。我們可能傾向以某種方式行動,但每個人都可以決定自己將如何表現。大多數人都覺得發現自己與生俱來的傾向既能使人振奮又能自我肯定,它也可以是一個真正使人大開眼界的體驗!了解你與生俱來的傾向可讓你有意識地改變行為而不改變原來的自己,它能給你能量和信心,讓你超越原來的自我。

性格透視®展示性格脾性理論的最新演化,​​它建立在加拿大進行了二十多年的研究、卡爾・榮格 (Carl Jung)、大衛・凱爾西 (David Keirsey)、琳達・貝仁斯 (Linda Berens) 的工作,以及跨越 25 個世紀的脾性理論歷史的基礎之上。

性格透視®系統利用便利的卡片分類和簡短的問卷來揭示你的脾性偏好。除了是第一個包含內向/外向性格二分法的脾性理論評估之外,性格透視®還使用了四種顏色,以及簡短的描述和標誌來表示脾性偏好:綠色探究型金色組織型藍色真我型橙色多謀型。這個組合創造了一種了解自己和他人的共同語言。
