Examples include: Ezekiel (590BC): Ox – Man – Lion – Eagle Plato (340BC): Artistic – Sensible – Intuitive - Reasoning Carl Jung:Introverted – Sensing – Thinking – Judging David Kiersey: Guardian – Idealists – Rationals - Artisans True Colors: Gold – Green – Blue – Orange Merrill – Reid: Analytic – Amiable - Driver – Expressive No perspective is ever completely accurate and reliable. The more perspectives we have, then the more clearly we see and understand ourselves and others.

3 1.Build stronger relationships by identifying strengths and weaknesses in themselves and others. 2.Connect with each Temperament quickly and efficiently while reducing the possibility of misunderstanding and angry encounters that cause members to fade away. 3.Understand that not everyone thinks or acts just like them. Once they learn how to adapt to and interact with the different personalities of their customers and those within the organization production will soar.

4 4.Discover how to reduce tension, virtually eliminate issues, concerns and objections by learning what motivates each of the temperaments 5.Build camaraderie in a team that literally marches to the beat of four different drummers.

Phrases like “get a move on” seldom help the process.  Find someone else to argue with. They don’t want to get involved.  Don’t push them to take a public stance.  Loosen your tidiness standards.
