Have you ever met a person for the very first time and within a few seconds you "just know" that you can't stand even sitting next to that person? And have you also met a person for the very first time and almost instantly known that you've developed a friend for life? Why is that?

There can be many reasons - maybe they haven't had a bath for several weeks... but in most cases, there's a more proven, scientific reason: It's called your Personal Style differences.

Personal Style is defined as "your natural predisposition toward time, people, task and situations." In other words, you're born with preferences in each of these areas and they stick with you - in most cases, unconsciously - for life.

You probably know an individual who, no matter what, can never be on time. Then there are other individuals who, even if forced to forge ahead in a snowstorm, slog through a flooded river and crawl around fallen buildings from that day's earthquake, would still make their appointments on time.

The research is clear: Personal Style is as real as you reading this line of type, but rarely do individuals come to truly understand their Personal Style so that they can proactively deal with their natural tendencies.

Your natural tendencies affect everything that you do in your life - your job satisfaction, how you learn in school and at the workplace, your relationships (both at work and at home), the type of free time activities you like to do, and much more.

Imagine knowing what your natural preferences were so that you could avoid pitfalls, make informed, conscious decisions, and create resolution and patience in some areas of your life while creating acceleration and excitement in others.

You can know. In just 10 minutes, the Online Personal Style Indicator will reveal your natural strengths and weaknesses, your learning and teaching abilities, the type of job and job setting you prefer and more.

I'm not sure where I would be today had I not been introduced to the Personal Style Indicator 13 years ago. First, it made me aware of my tendencies that caused extreme stress at work (You know... the kind who personally doesn't have stress but knows how to create it in others?). It also helped me recognize where I was "showing up" in relationships in my marriage, with my family, friends and peers. (We'll discuss relationships and Personal Style in a future issue.)

If you have already taken the Online Personal Style Indicator, pass this on to someone you care about or to someone you think may need a nudge in the "awareness" category.

In future issues we'll be discussing in greater detail how your Personal Style influences your purpose, job performance, satisfaction and morale.

Until next time, keep Living On Purpose!
