Introvert or Extrovert?
You need to know that I come from a pure intro family: My parents as well as my brother are very quiet people. In comparison, I have always been much more open and more communicative. On the other hand, I always felt overwhelmed under extroverts, and then only wanted to leave.
At the same time, I have always asked myself why we have so similar needs and characteristics in the family, especially as concerns the restfulness and restraint towards other people. On the other hand, I am so different from the rest of the family, my father and my brother are much like each other, and my mother is still quite different.
What kind of personality are you?
As part of my NLP training, I got to know the model of personality types after Dietmar Friedmann's "Psychography". Suddenly everything was clear to me!
Friedmann distinguishes three areas of personality - knowledge, relationship and action. Everyone has a share of it, but a clear focus, which essentially determines his or her personality characteristics.
The 3 personality types
- The type of knowledge: He is particularly strong in thought and logic.
- The relationship type: He is particularly strong in feeling and perception.
- The type of action: He is particularly strong in becoming active.
Quiet people can be found in all three types. The personality typology gives you an explanation for why even gentle people are so different, although they are often thrown in a pot or get stamped, which often do not correspond to them.
Mnemonic: Quiet people are very different. That is why they are found in all three types.
Use strengths rather than compensate for weaknesses
Each personality type has its own strengths and challenges. They all have one thing in common: they usually strive in certain directions. Because we often strive for what we do not have - and use too much, which is already there.
But we sabotage ourselves with it. The art is to combine both: what you bring home, and what you have conquered - the mixture really brings us further.
How to find your personality type
Important This personality model is of course a complex matter. That's why the descriptions of each type here are just a condensed outline of the main features. In addition, since each of us carries proportions of all types, you will probably find yourself in two or even three types again.
If you want to find out for sure which type of balance you are, there are several free-of-charge personality tests on the internet. Which personality type you are has a big impact on how you can live your visibility according to your personality.
