1. Understanding Behavioural Preferences and Behaviour: Hello, My name's Robin Hills. I'm an emotion intelligence coach and facilitator. This short courses on behavioral preferences of behavioral type, and it's based on the work off cull young that was later modified by Isabel Mayes and Catherine Breaks. What is the behavioral preference? Well, where'd you get your energy from? How do you take in information from the outside world? How do you process this information, and how do you choose to express yourself to live your life? All of these preferences on within this course, we'll look at how they blend together, work together to give your behavioral time. Now, I'm sure some of you have gone on to the Internet and taken a quasar questionnaire that has given you an answer to your PayPal type on provide you with a report. You may have wondered how come the report is so accurate? Where this information's come from within, this course will explore whether information comes from and how you can use your preferences on work with your preferences on. Flex your preferences in such a way that you can get better outcomes when you're working with yourself on when you're working with other people within the course will go through an understanding of each of the preferences in turn, in order that you can work out warrior, your own preference lies. There will be the chance for you to go once the Internet and to take a question there if you need to, or to find out how you can get more information in order that you can get more accurate assessment off your behavioral type as ever. I hope you enjoy working through the course, and I'm here to help you and support you. It's once or any questions I look forward to working with you. 2. Behavioural Preferences Objectives: this module is all about behavioral preferences. Working through this module, you'll get a clearer understanding of your own behavioral preferences and how they differ from the behavioral preferences of other people in order to get the best. After this module, I recommend that you download the exercise accompanies this module, and as you work through the series of lectures, you'll be able to identify your preferences more efficiently and more effectively in order that you can then complete the exercise right at the end of the series of lectures within this module will look at how you get your energy. We'll look at how you see the world and how you taken information. We'll look at how you process this information on. We'll look at how all this works together. In terms of your lifestyle orientation, you'll get the opportunity to analyze your own personal style on. We'll look at how your personal style influences your behavior. This will give you a fuller appreciation of how preferences influence interactions and how your preferences influence the interactions that you have with other people. 3. The Four Behavioural Preferences: We're going to look at behavioral preferences based on the work of Carl, Carl Young's theory of psychological type is well-known, well established, but it's quite academic. Young's work was refined and developed by Catherine breaks and Isabel Myers, who actually helped to bring it into the public domain and to make it more applicable. It has over 70 years of research. And it helps with self-awareness and confirming self-perception. Behavioral preferences help people to understand normal differences, normal differences in themselves and other people. Concerning life orientation, where energy is derived from how information is acquired, how decisions are made, and how people engage with the world. An understanding of behavioral preferences helps in your appreciation of your strengths. It also helps understand the strengths of other people. It helps you in your understanding of personality differences in others and gives you insights how you can work with the more constructively. Behavioral preferences relates to key leadership tasks and challenges. It's useful in working with teams, with strategy, managing conflict, and helping others with motivation, etc. Preferences can't be used to measure cognitive ability, your IQ, your intelligence. Preferences can't be used to determine whether you have a psychiatric disturbance or any other type of mental illness. They can't be used to show a level of maturity or affluence. They can't be used to measure emotions. The degree of trauma that you may have experienced, or whether you're undergoing high levels of stress. Type is useful in understanding yourself and other people. But we've got to remember that everyone is an individual. When you're working with your assessments, you need to decide how accurate that assessment is for you. What we'll look at with regards to the geo game-based preferences. These behavioral preferences are some of your key preferences, some of your key characteristics, some of your key tendencies. But we won't be looking at all of them. The full preferences that we'll be looking at are how you get your energy, how you gather information, how you process information, and how you engage with the world. Let me explain what the preferences. If I was to ask you whether you would like tea or coffee, you would have a preference for one or the other. I have a very strong preference for coffee simply because I have a physiological reaction to T and I can't drink it. Therefore, my preferences for coffee. There's no rights, there's no wrong. It's just that, that's my preference. Another example is the time mildly to moderately deaf. I usually wear hearing aids. And when the phone rings because I'm less deaf in my left ear than in my right ear. When I pick up the receiver to speak to somebody on the other end of the telephone. In order to hear better, I place the receiver against my left ear in preference to my right ear. Preference. A behavioral preference is something that's preferred. It's something that's natural. It's easy. It's something that you feel comfortable with. It doesn't take a lot of energy. When you behave in a non-preferred way. It's unnatural. It's difficult. It's all couldn't, it takes more energy. You have to concentrate on. It's a lot more. For behavioral scales that we'll be looking at, our extroversion and introversion, sensing and intuition, thinking and feeling, and judging and perception. The extroversion introversion scale looks at how you get your energy. The Sensing Intuition scale looks at how you take in information. The thinking and feeling scale looks at how you process information. The judging and perception scale looks at how you orientate yourself and how you engage with the outer world. When combined, you'll fall preferences indicate your preference type, and this forms the basis of your personality type. 4. Extraversion and Introversion: The first behavioral preference that we're going to explore is extroversion and introversion. These are complimentary attitudes towards the world. It's how you get your energy to start with. You should suspend your idea. Crrowd and well-being extroverted is all about. And what being introverted is all about. If I was to ask, most people weren't being an extrovert is 30 will probably say it's somebody who's quite loud. Like engaging, talks to a lot of people. Earned is usually the life and soul of the party. Somebody who is introverted is often seen as being quite shy and quite boring. However, in young Ian terms extroversion and introversion means slightly different things. And extroversion preference is a preference for getting stimulation from the environment, the outer world of people and things. Whilst an introversion preference, preference for getting stimulation from within the inner world of thoughts and reflections. We do both. Both attitudes are used by everyone, but one is usually preferred and one is usually better developed. Somebody with an extroversion preference feels pulled outward by external claims and conditions. They feel pulled outward by other people. Somebody with an introversion preference, on the other hand, feels pulled inward by external claims and intrusions. They would prefer to reflect and think about things in their own inner world. Somebody with an extroversion preference is energized by other people. Energized by external experience. It's almost as if they're solar-powered. Somebody with an introversion preference is energized by internal resources, their own internal experience. It's almost as if they are battery powered. If somebody with an extroversion preference will express their emotions freely. While somebody with an introversion preference since to bottle up their emotions and keep them to themselves. Somebody with an extroversion preference needs relationships, needs engagement with other people. Somebody with an introversion preference has a need for being on their own, has a need for privacy. When asked to do something, somebody with an extroversion preference will act. Then maybe they'll think about it. Whilst somebody with an introversion preference will think about it. And maybe they'll act. Somebody with an extroversion preferences, often friendly, talkative and easy to get to know. While somebody with an introversion preferences often reserved, quiet, and harder to get to know. People with an extroversion preference tend to be interested in a lot of things. They give a breadth to life. Whilst people within introversion preference are interested in one or two subjects which cells study quite deeply. They give a depth to life. So people with an extroversion preference may seem quite shallow to people with an introversion preference. And people with an introversion preference might seem quite withdrawn to people with an extroversion preference. Here are some keywords associated with the extroversion and introversion preference. The words associated with extroversion are active, outward. Sociable. People, many expressive and breadth. The words associated with introversion are reflective, inward, reserved, privacy, few quiet depth. Now, we will use both preferences, but we have a preference for one over the other. One of these preferences will be stronger and better developed. How are you able to identify which one is your preference for the way in which you get your energy. If you can. Markets on the extroversion, introversion scale on the activity sheets. This will give us some information that will work with later as you work through the rest of the course. 5. Sensing and Inutition: The next behavioral preference that we're going to explore is the way in which information is taken in from the outside world. You have a sensing preference or do you have an intuition preference? People with a sensing preference taken information by way of the five senses, sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell. People with an intuition preference processing information by way of a sixth sense or a hunch. You'll notice that the intuition preferences given the letter a and that's because the letter I, it has already been taken by the introversion preference. Now, we take in information by using both sensing and intuition, but we have a natural preference for one over the other. Which one is your preference? People with a sensing preference like to start right at the beginning and they liked to take one step at a time when they're doing something. They liked to follow a process. People with an intuition preference, on the other hand, jump in anywhere and they may leap over steps. People with a sensing preference prefer realistic, accurate instructions with specific details. Whereas people with an intuition preference preferred to be given the overall purpose and they liked to work things out for themselves. People with a sensing preference prefer handling practical matters. People within intuition preference prefer imagining possibilities. People with a sensing preference like things that are definite. They like things that are measurable. People with an intuition preference like opportunities for being inventive. They don't like being restricted. People with a sensing preference. We'll look at specific parts and pieces, and then they'll look at how they build up into a whole. Whilst people with an intuition preference like to look up patterns and relationships and how things work together. People with a sensing preference live in the present moment. They enjoy being in the here and now. They enjoy what's their people within intuition preference live towards the future. They anticipate what things might be, how things might turn out. People with a sensing preference like set procedures. They like established routines. Whilst people with an intuition preference like variety, they like change. They like things to be different. So to somebody with an intuition preference, people with a sensing preference may seem materialistic and literally minded. Whilst to somebody with a sensing preference, someone with an intuition preference may seem fake ALL or impractical. Dreamer. Here are some key words associated with each preference. For sensing. Preference is associated with details, presents practical facts, sequential directions, repetition, enjoyment, perspiration, and conserve. The words associated with the intuition preference. Patterns, future imaginative innovation, random hunches, variety, anticipation, inspiration, and change. Again, we will use both preferences. However, one will be stronger and better developed. Can you identify which will need your preference and markets on the scale on your activity sheet. We'll refer back to this as we work through the course. 6. Thinking and Feeling: The next preference scale we'll explore is the thinking and feelings scale. This looks at the way in which decisions are made. Do you make your decisions through thinking, which is where you decided on the basis of logic and an objective considerations? Or do you make decisions based on feeling, which is where you decide on the basis of personal subjective values. We do both. Its just the one of the virtues is usually preferred and better developed. We can actually do both very, very easily and very quickly. It's just that we have a preference for one over the other that will go to first before we go to the other preference. People with a thinking preference decide with their head. People with a feeling preference decide with their hearts. People with the thinking preference go by logic. People with a feeling preference go by values. They go by personal convictions. People with their thinking preference to concern for the truth, concern for justice. Whilst people with a feeling preference or concern for relationships, their concern for harmony. People with a thinking preference tends to be more objective about situations. They like to see things as an onlooker from outside of a situation. Whilst people with a feeling preference, so much more subjective, they liked to see things as a participant. And from within a situation. People with a thinking preference take a long-term view of the situation. While people with a feeling preference taken immediate personal view of the situation. When looking at an event, people with the thinking preference will spontaneously find flaws in order that they can criticize and work towards making things better. While people with a feeling preference will spontaneously appreciate whatever is happening and going on. People with a thinking preference so good at analyzing situations. They're good at analyzing plans. Whilst people with a feeling preference, so good at understanding how people respond to a situation and empathizing to somebody with a very strong feeling preference. Somebody with a thinking preference may sink cold and condescending. Whilst to somebody with a very strong thinking preference. Somebody with a feeling preference may seem fuzzy minded and emotional. Here are some keywords associated with both of the preferences. The thinking preferences associated with head. Objective. Justice, cool, impersonal, criticize, analyze precise and principles. The failing preferences associated with heart, subjective, harmony, caring, personal, appreciative, empathize, persuasive and values. We use either preference. However, one is going to be stronger, one will be preferred, one will be better developed. With this preference scale, as I mentioned, we use both. We're going to interchange with both very easily and very quickly, but we'll use one preference before we use the other. How clear are you as to which is your preference? Again, if you can mark this on your activity sheet, it's something we can look back to as we progress through the course. 7. Judging and Perceiving: The final preference scale is searching and perceiving. This is the way in which complimentary lifestyle Sarah organized. It's important to point out that people with a judging preference and not judgmental anymore than anyone who has a perceiving preference. And anyone who has a perceiving preference is not more perceptive than anyone with a judging preference. These suggests labels that are given them for this particular scale. People with a judging preference have a lifestyle that is decisive, planned and orderly. People with a perceiving preference have a lifestyle that's flexible, adaptable, and spontaneous. We use both attitudes, but one is usually preferred and one is usually better developed. People with a judging preference prefer an organized lifestyle. Whilst people with a perceiving preference prefer a flexible lifestyle. People with a judging preference like definite order and structure. People with a perceiving preference like to go with the flow. People with a judging preference line, clear limits and categories. They liked to work to a list. People with a perceiving preference can work to a list as well, but they like freedom to explore things without limits. And more often than not, they don't want to A-list. People with a judging preference, feel comfortable working towards closure and finishing things. All. People with a perceiving preference feel comfortable keeping things open and maintaining openness just in case things are likely to change. People with a judging preference light to have their life under control. Or they like to feel as if they've got everything under control. Whereas people with a perceiving preference prefer to experience life as it happens, people with a judging preference enjoy being decisive. Whilst people with a perceiving preference enjoy being curious. They like discovering surprises. When working towards a deadline, both will meet the deadline. It's just the stern in different ways. People with a judging preference handled deadlines by planning in advance and working towards the deadline bit by bit by bit. Whereas people with a perceiving preference meet the deadline by a last minute rush and an adrenaline surge to get things done. People with a perceiving preference may seek people with a strong charging preferences, rigid or uptight. Whilst people with a judging preference may see people with a very strong perceiving preferences being disorganized, messy, or irresponsible. Some keywords associated with these preferences. For judging organized structure. Control, decisive, deliberate, closure, plan, deadlines, and productive. Whilst words associated with perceiving our flexible flow experience, curious, spontaneous openness, discovery, weight, and receptive. Again, we will use both preferences. It's just that we will have one which is a lot stronger and a lot better developed. Usually with this preference, it's a lot clearer for most people. How clear are you with this preference? I'm going to ask you to markets on your activity sheet. And then we can pull everything together and look at all your preferences and how they blend together to give you your personality type. 8. Working with Type: We've looked at for behavioral preferences, seen quite a bit of D cell and by now you'll have some clarity around your preference for each of the behavioral preferences. Preferences may be clearer than others. Some you may not be sure of at all. But working through the exercise will give you an opportunity to find out more about your preferences. It determined what your preferences for each of the scales on where your preference slides. Each preferences allocated a letter, the lettuce build up into one of 16 times. Here we have a type table, and this looks at the proportion of each type within a general population. This is a general western population. The population in your country may differ, but it's not gonna be a big difference. As you can see, some types are more common than others and some are quite rare. Your behavioral time will lead you to certain tendencies and characteristics and behaviors. More information is given to you within the exercise sheets around your particular type. More information is available and you can certainly search for more information on the Internet. Understanding of type helps you to make sense of who you are in the world. It helps you to learn about yourself. It helps with your understanding of where you fit in a framework that describes personality differences, impulsive and constructive ways. Understanding of type helps you to appreciate differences between people, important differences, and understand how different types could work together in complementary ways. Applying this knowledge will help you to value diversity and other people. It will help to improve working relationships. It will help you to develop your leadership style, to improve communication, to improve problem-solving strategies, and it will help you to manage change. Why is it important to consider behavioral preferences? And why is it important to consider working with type? In summary, understanding behavioral preferences, your silliness of other people will help you with self-awareness. It'll help you to identify what your strengths are. It will help you to identify any of your blind spots. Working with type will help with your personal and professional development. It'll help you to maximize your potential. Working with type will help you to understand yourself better and other people. It'll help you to appreciate their preferences, how their preferences play out, and the gifts that this gives them. Understanding Type will help you to build relationships through better communication and better teamwork. Working with type can be used in any situation in which you need to understand yourself and you need to understand other people. Finally, it's important to look at some rules about working with tight life tends to support our preferences. It makes us even more a small distrustful of non preferences. The preferences that we are least comfortable with. Any string for plate becomes a liability. It can become a weakness. Type is only a theory. It takes real life to validate. Set. Type is only an explanation. It's never an excuse. I don't think logically because I've got a feeling preference. No, it's not an excuse. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. So the whole of your preferences blended and working together is greater than each preference played out on its own. Type is only one lens through which we can look at human personality. We've only looked at for behavioral preferences. There are more, there are other ways of looking at its personality. There are measures of traits, there are measures of behavior. To be effective. You've got to look at yourself first and then you can start applying it to others. This is why it's important in making sense of if you are in the world. Type is easier said or receives us to think about site than actually working with it. Don't blame everything on your opposite type. Easy to do, but it's an excuse. Finally, type can't solve everything. 9. Putting People into Boxes: You've seen the type table, but for the simplicity of the 16 cell structure is an effective way for people to discuss differences safely. A reminder that much of other people's apparently annoying behavior is not necessarily attributable to their doing those things on purpose, but because their minds, possibly also their brains function differently. Working with type is often criticized for putting people in boxes. This is one of the problems that can emerge with personality tests. Labels can be applied to people that limit their ability to do things that fall outside of their type preferences. People can be bulk, stay in and refuse to be let out. However, remember that we can use all of the preferences. Some are better developed Tunisia to use than others. We adapt the use of our preferences according to a variety of factors and so effectively can become any type. Your best fit type is the type that you are most comfortable with. Consider the cells structure of the 16 types as being like rooms in a house. You'll visit all of the rooms at some time and you'll spend more time in some rooms than in others. Your best fit type room is the room that you feel most comfortable in. You can relax and you can be yourself. It's the room that you spend most time in and it's where people will look when they want to find u. Let's have a look at another example that will help with your understanding. Here are the numbers want 45. Your task is to find all the numbers in order starting from one, then two, then three, and so on, all the way through 45. I'll give you some time to try this now and see how far you get. It's quite difficult, isn't it? Some numbers really stand out and some are quite difficult to see. You may not have found all of them, but hopefully you'll have made some progress. By applying a framework over the numbers, the exercise becomes much easier to do. You can see where the numbers are in relation to each other. Now that you understand the system, try the exercise again without the framework and see how far you get this time. You should be able to make much better progress and counts up to 45 relatively quickly. Each number remains individual, but it's related to the others in some way. Once you know what the pattern is, you'll be able to notice certain groupings. All the numbers on the right-hand side can be easily divided by three. What's this got to do with personality types? By applying a framework to our knowledge of preferences and type, it becomes easier to recognize patterns and groupings. This helps with our understanding and makes things much clearer around some of the relationships. A good practitioner is not looking to place people into a box by any means. But to use this as a starting point to explore how the preferences and how behaviors are expressed. 10. Behavioural Preferences Review: within this module. We've looked at four behavioral preferences. We've looked at how you get your energy. We've looked at how you see the world and how you taken information. We've looked at how you process this information on. We've looked at how you orientate your life. We've looked at how all these preferences blend together and give you a behavioral type. We've analyzed your personal style, Aunt, how this influence is your behavior on how this gives you certain strengths. I hope it's given you an appreciation of how the preferences influence interactions where the other people, so that you can recognize some of the strengths in other people. This module will help you to make sense of who you are in the world by looking out and working with type. And the exercise is being designed to give you a lot more information. We started working through the exercises we've gone through the module on. I hope you'll carry on with the exercise just to find out a little bit more about your type about the strengths it gives you and how you can use your type much more effectively. As ever. I'm here to help you as you're working through the exercise toe work with you, aunt, to answer any questions that you may have. So I hope you enjoyed this module. I hope you enjoy the exercise on. I hope you enjoy working with type.
