Be Nasty in FOUR Different Ways!

Social media attracts its fair share of unwelcome comments. Today’s #bekind is tomorrow’s #screwyou!

Within the behavioural psychology of nasty comments, we find that each of the four main character types has its own nasty side. Who do YOU become when you’re being nasty?

Yes – But are you HAPPY?

The state of happiness is most people’s ultimate life goal for self or others: When asked what we want out of life, we say: “I just want to be happy”. When considering a loved one’s well-being we say: “Whatever you do, as long as you’re happy…” But what is it? And, more to the point, how will we know when we have got there?

What extraverts and introverts think of each other

It’s the most obvious personality trait… the preference continuum with extraversion on one side and introversion on the other. Each side of that preference unconsciously superimposes THEIR preference on the other type – concluding (again, subconsciously) there’s something ‘wrong’.

When you feel flattened, bombed out or blocked… Be Berlin!

Be Berlin? What does that mean to US? Well, whenever WE feel devastated; if life’s chances have dropped a bomb or two in our happiness; if we find barriers or blockages in our lives… then consider what the Berliners have done.

Is this an opportunity or not?

As we go through life, opportunities occur. But the best ones, the ones that make life REALLY worth living, always have a particular start point… Having coached many thousands of people over the past 25 years, I have come to recognise five (plus 1) different attitudes or ‘Mindsets’ to OPPORTUNITIES. I wonder which category YOU would fall into?

Guessing someone's psychological 'type' from their email

Guessing someone’s psychological ‘type’ from their email

A question I am asked regulalrly is: How can I work out someone’s ‘colour type’?

The answer is through observation.  Think about it.  If someone walked into the room, you wouldn’t necessarily know IMMEDIATELY whether they were left or right-handed… but, by observing how they do things, you might start to see their preferences as manifested through their actions.

It’s the same for psychological types.  Observe and it will become clear in their body language, tone of voice and content of what they say – and how they communicate.

And, a major part of modern-day communication can be found in the emails we send and receive.
