An insightful journey into personality
Individuals scoring higher in the emotional reaction dimension, admit to a variety of problems in coping with day-to-day situations, and are often tense and anxious. Individuals scoring higher in the emotional stability dimension are more calm and composed.
Individuals scoring higher in this dimension, are worried about what others think and are deeply affected by circumstances. They are concerned about the future and are often dissatisfied with their past achievements. Having been let down by others in the past may have taught them to be suspicious of the motives and abilities of other people.
Individuals scoring higher in this dimension are satisfied with their life and their ability to cope with daily challenges. They are relaxed and assertive individuals. They know their own minds and are comfortable with themselves. Optimistic and positive, they find it easier to deal with criticism constructively.
The result of this questionnaire is only a snapshot of your personality. It does not mean that you necessarily behave in the way described above all the time. If, like most people, you occupy the middle ground between these two extremes, sometimes you will behave in both ways.
Nevertheless, from time to time most of us feel we would like to widen our behavioral repertoire and we often show this by admiring the qualities we see in others. If you examine the table below, you may be able to identify things that you admire in others or areas where you would like to improve. Some development activities are suggested under each personality type.
- I am too stressed out.
- I wish I could feel less anxious.
- I sometimes lose my temper too easily.
- Sometimes I am too relaxed.
- Some people think I don't really care.
- I would like to motivate myself more.
