It is amazing that virtually no school in the world gives its students a Personality Test. Once you take this test you will have a much better understanding of who you are and what your natural tendencies are, and more importantly, you will understand the people who are not like you much more clearly, and uncover a much easier and more effective way to interact and communicate with those people. While no one can be totally defined by which of the four basic groups they fall into, once you learn how to read people’s colors (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow) you will have a competitive advantage in understanding what will be the most effective way to communicate with them.
Four quadrant personality tests are very common. The DISC test is the most popular version being used today. It is used by many Fortune 500 companies. The basic four personality groups goes back as far as 340 BC to Plato. He called the groups Choleric (Red) Sanguine (Blue) Phlegmatic (Yellow) and Melancholy (Green). We use the colors because it makes the process very simple, and as you will soon see, it lends itself more to the idea of reading others colors, rather than simply discovering your own. After you take the test we strongly suggest you watch the video that is provided. In a very short couple of minutes, Marc will help you truly understand how to apply Personality Profiling to help you become a master communicator.
Take the test as HONESTLY as you possibly can. Most people have a tendency to answer the questions the way they wish they were, as opposed to the way they really are. By getting an honest score, you will be able to best use the information provided. We also recommend that you do not take a great deal of time with each question. While there is no time limit when the test is taken on line, there is one when you are at one of our live workshops. It should take you less than ten minutes to take the full test. You will score most accurately if you go with you initial reaction to each question instead of over analyzing each one. (if you find yourself doing that, you will probably test to be a Green)
Take your time to read the simple directions thoroughly and have fun discovering your true colors.
