Part 4: How Does My Personality Type Affect My Personal Life?

Personal Aspirations

Your personal life is driven by your personal aspirations. What do you want to accomplish? What kind of family do you want to eventually have? How do you want to spend your retirement? What kind of hobbies do you enjoy? All of these things drive your personal life. Do you know what determines your goals? Your personality.

Your personality is governed by your values. If you value kindness, you will be kind to others and will treat others with respect. Note that there is a reciprocating relationship between your values and how you act. If you value knowledge, you will look to further your own intelligence.

The Power of Your Personality Type Part 1: Why Do You Act The Way That You Do?

The Power of Your Personality Type Part 1:
Why Do You Act The Way That You Do?

Welcome to this six part blog series on “The Power of Your Personality Type” and why knowing your personality traits and behavior styles is so important to living a full and satisfying life.

Let’s start by asking this question…

How do you react to the things that happen to you in your life?

The fact is, we all react to stimuli differently. When we are faced with a stressful situation, there are many ways that we can handle the circumstances including (but not limited to):

  • Staying calm and reserved
  • Becoming stressed and anxious
  • Reading the situation and gauging reactions instinctively
  • Following the lead of others
  • Taking control of the situation
  • Throwing a temper tantrum
  • Sulking

​Have you ever wondered why you react that way?

Most people will answer, “That is just how I’m wired”, which is 'technically' the truth.

However, if we look closely at the circuit board or the “How-To” manual and see how our personalities are wired, we can start to recognize our strengths and weaknesses and adjust accordingly.

So, the question remains, “If we can see how we are wired by analyzing our personalities, can we change our personalities as well?

While you may be able to change some traits, if you are like most of us, you’re not going to be able to change your entire personality.

In studying the science of “nature versus nurture”, we find that some of our characteristics are so hard-wired in (nature) that we can’t change those traits no matter how hard we try.

However, the traits that we can play around with are the qualities that will ultimately determine the amount of success that you achieve in your life.

Of course, knowledge and actions are two very different things.

You may know that certain personality traits and quirks may be keeping you from being successful but doing something to change those traits is where we usually stop.

You might know that you procrastinate too much.

You might know that you get distracted way too easily.

You may know that you should be doing something to better yourself instead of sitting around eating potato chips and watching TV

But if you don’t take actions to change these things, you’ll still be in the same boat.

The key is to implement that knowledge to change the behaviors that you want to change.

Not only that. You also want to make sure that you do this slowly.

You can’t change all of your “bad” behaviors and quirks all at once.

That is a surefire recipe for disaster.

Dumping bad habits and replacing them with good habits is a process.

Making changes that stick is like learning how to walk, it only works when you take it - ONE STEP AT A TIME!

Ok, that’s it for this segment.

Stay tuned for the next post in “The Power of Your Personality Type” blog series, where you’ll discover why it’s so important for you to find out your personality types, as well as the personality types of the people you interact with every day…
