Lots of people want to learn about themselves with modern quizzes and personality “profilers” — just look on Facebook. I love supporting people who are eager to make sense of their findings.
Like C.G. Jung, I don’t use any one model of psychological types to put people into facile boxes. Rather than label people as this or that TYPE, I look simply to explain personal STYLE differences between the ways we function and interact with our surroundings, ourselves, and each other. I guide you to gain clarity of strengths and “blind spots” in order to promote a better understanding of human psychology in general and your own way of seeing the world in particular.
Here are a few quizzes — you can’t fail! — for you to use to find your style in relationships. This information tells you about your likes and dislikes, your edges and strengths, your direction, and potential obstacles on the journey. As Master Dogen says, “These insights are not the moon, they are simply pointers to the moon”.
Other Personality Profilers can help identify your psychological style in relationships but aren’t as endlessly helpful to your mind-body-spirit as working with the Enneagram method.
The MBTI® personality inventory is based on C.G. Jung's theory of psychological types. This questionnaire points to 16-varieties of personality — perceiving/motivations for behaving.
This particular “love language” profiler will explain your primary love language, i.e., what it means, and how you can use it to connect to others.
If you find you’re making goals but not sticking to them and aren’t ready to work with me, here’s a tool you might like to use on your own. I know I’ve tried everything before hiring a therapist (they’re not cheap!).
Getting clear about our values can also help us know more about ourselves, what matters, and how we want to be in the world. A favorite questionnaire for accessing personal values is called CVI.
All of these quizzes are fun, but they can be transformative with a translator. I’m looking forward to helping you get clear about your findings and how they relate to your creative direction going forward. Set up an appointment today to learn how I can support you.
