How to Discover Yourself
Have you ever asked yourself the question, who am I and found a favourable answer?
Have you ever asked yourself what are my strengths and weaknesses, and come up with an answer like honesty, loyal, committed?
Do you realise that these are only values and not strengths?
What then are strenghts and weaknesses and how do I go about discovering them? These are inate qualities that you are born with, unlike values that you learn by obeservation, or in school, or taught by your parents and teachers. Strengths and weaknesses are qualities that you learn to develop by doing more of your strengths and less of your weaknesses. How many times were you told to develop your weaknesses only to discover that it is very difficult to do. Why would you focus on something that will not add value to your life. Begin to focus on your strengths which are the qualities that will help you reach your destiny.
This brings me to my point that I want to focus on, which is called behavioral analysis.
What is the difference between behaviour and personality?
Personality is a stable, consistent pattern of thoughts, behaviors and emotions. Behavior is an expression of personality in context. Understanding behavior determines how a given personality will react or behave in certain situations or circumstances.
A person generally described as “calm, warm and friendly” might become “tense and explosive” in a stressful situation. Another person appearing to have the same personality traits may thrive and do amazing things in the same situation.
So simply understanding one’s personality traits has limited value in the workplace, team environment, or relationship. Behavioral assessments provide much more value in improving the effectiveness of human interaction in any environment
The Seven Key Traits and Behaviors Measured Are:
Assertiveness: An individual’s need to exercise control in his/her environment. A high need to control would be very assertive; a low need to control would be accommodating.
Sociability: The behavior assessment tools pinpoint an individual’s need to build relationships and communicate with others. A high Sociability need would cause a person to be more outgoing; a lower need to socialize would cause a person to be more reserved.
Pace: Our behavioral analysis tools identify an individual’s patience or proactiveness. A higher level of proactiveness would cause an individual to be more multi-tasked; a lower level of proactiveness would cause an individual to be more patient and methodical.
Detail Orientation: DISC tools assess the degree to which an individual is motivated by structure or independence in his/her environment. A higher Detail Orientation causes an individual to be more careful and thorough; a lower level of Detail Orientation causes an individual to be more flexible and casual with detail.
Behavioral Adaptability: Our assessment tools measure the degree to which an individual can adapt or modify his/her behaviors for different people/situations and sustain that adaptation.
Emotiveness: DISC behavioral assessments identify the ability of an individual to demonstrate a sensitive, empathetic approach with others; or a more logical, controlled and rational approach with others.
Creativity: DISC behavior assessments tools identify an individual’s ability to bring “original thinking” to a discussion, problem solving or selling situation. Individuals can have a more conservative, innovative, or creative orientation.
