Self Discovery 

Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Self-discovery will help you understand how you are “wired” or have a bent toward specific personal preferences in how you get things done or possibly don’t get things done! Every individual is unique (there is only one of you), yet at the same time individuals have similar behavioral styles, temperaments, and patterns of decision making. As you learn more about yourself you will gain greater knowledge that will help you in your relationship to others.

T-JTA – Taylor Johnson Temperament Assessment
The T-JTA is used to measure a number of important and comparatively independent common personality variables or attitudes and behavioral tendencies which influence personal, social, marital, parental, family, scholastic, and vocational adjustment. It provides an evaluation in visual form showing the respondent’s feelings about himself or herself at the time the questions are answered.

DISC - The DISC Personality System is the universal language of behavior.
Research has shown that behavioral characteristics can be grouped together in four major divisions called personality styles. People with similar personality profiles styles tend to exhibit specific behavioral characteristics common to that profile. All people share these four styles in varying degrees of intensity. The acronym DISC stands for the four personality styles represented by the letters:
 
Dominance – relating to control, power and assertiveness
Influence – relating to social situations and communication
Steadiness (submission in Marston's time) – relating to patience, persistence, and thoughtfulness
Conscientiousness (or caution, compliance in Marston's time) – relating to structure and organization

The DISC can be personally used in the following ways:

  • Discover behavioral strengths, areas for augmenting, blending, capitalizing
  • Value and learn to respect the strengths of others
  • Deal with conflict effectively by learning adaptive behaviors
  • Enhance work group with teamwork and minimize team conflict
  • Develop strategies to meet diverse needs of others
  • Improve communication skills by determining communication styles
  • Increase sales skills and understanding of the prospect, client, customer with people reading
  • Improve customer relationships by identification and meeting needs
  • Reduce conflict and stress, in both interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships
  • Manage interpersonal communication better
 

MBTI – Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
The MBTI instrument identifies four separate dichotomies: Extraversion versus Introversion, Sensing versus Intuition, Thinking versus Feeling, and Judging versus Perceiving. These preferences affect not only what is attended to in any given situation but also how conclusions are drawn about what has been perceived. Please read on…

Simply put, the purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory is to help you discover how you gather information from what is going on around you (Perception) and how you reach conclusions (Judgment). The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the way individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.

Perception involves all the ways of becoming aware of things, people, happenings, or ideas. Judgment involves all the ways of coming to conclusions about what has been perceived. If people differ systematically in what they perceive and in how they reach conclusions, then it is only reasonable for them to differ correspondingly in their interests, reactions, values, motivations, and skills. If you work with people or have family members who are an opposite “Type” you are probably experiencing difficulty in these relationship. The MBTI should help you understand yourself and why you are more comfortable around certain people. It will also help you understand other “Type’s” perception and judging process.
