The Four Tendencies
I love to read about human nature. Understanding what makes us, as human beings, tick is an endless games of enquiry for me. Over the years, through work and personally, I've participated in some of the world's leading courses in self-development and social psychology as well as having dealt with psychologists, psychiatrists, hypnotherapists, NLP practitioners, meditators ... the list goes on.
People who are interested in these kinds of things sometimes try to fast-track their learning through avenues like: astrology, numerology, personality tests and others. The latter particularly, is a multi-billion dollar industry which many successful business leaders and companies strongly believe in.
But for me, it's more of a fun pastime. It's entertaining for me to do personality tests, just to see how accurate they are. What I find surprising is how often they are close to the truth and how the masterminds behind these tests have managed to boil 7+ billion people into a handful of personality types.
The latest test that I have tried has only 4 different types, which in itself is mind-blowing. And for me it was spot on.
If you have a few minutes to spare, I highly recommend that you give it a try!
