In this episode Joel and Antonia talk about healthy ways to approach personality development and personality typologies.
In this podcast you’ll find:
- Personality Psychology is a field that is often abused
- Typologies are something that needs to be respected
- Personality hacker helps identify the unique qualities of people
- Every single person is unique but we share common characteristics
- There are limited ways in seeing reality and there are patterns to it
- A good typology system doesn’t presume to define the person in their entirety
- We use different types of typology systems and interweave them to understand a person better
- Personality typologies help us understand how different and unique our perspectives are as individuals.
- The horizontal and vertical models measure different things
- Horizontal model – assuming everyone is of the same level of development
- Vertical model – levels of development measured on an upward scale
- Understanding the difference between these two types help us explore more details of an individual’s personality
- One of the benefits of a solid horizontal model is that it gives you permission to be yourself and it has you giving permission for others to be themselves.
- Typologies should never be used as a weapon.
- Horizontal models are great for permission. Vertical models are great for achievement.
- Many of us are interested to measure our progress and growth and vertical models are fantastic for analyzing our path.
- We will discuss different models and typologies in upcoming episodes
- Myers Briggs – studies how your mind is learning new information and how it is using it to make decisions
- Enneagram – studies the strategies we use to deal with trauma
- Graves model – study of ourselves in a micro and macro level
- The more typology systems you use, the more you’re going to see different components of an individual’s personality.
- We all have different virtues and values. No two people are exactly the same
- If the typology system is not helping you understand yourself better, then it’s either it’s a bad typology system or you’re using it the wrong way.
- Our ability to be happy is based on our emotional intelligence.
- Don’t believe in anything too much. Even you’ve identified your personality type using these models and typologies, remember that it’s not the entire picture. It gives you permission to be the best person you can.
