Ok maybe not at this very second but if I asked you a few questions I could peg your personality type and quickly determine what the percentage of probability your reaction or answer will be. How can a person do this? Its actually simpler than you think. With honest answers to my questions I will be accurate at about 80%. Once I get to know you my accuracy will jump to 95%.
You are more routine in your day-to-day life than u think. Does this describe your life? I am most certain the following does:
You will spend the majority of your weekends doing the something’s as you did the prior weekend.
You drive the same route to work daily without even considering other options (being if u work and drive a car.)
You maintain a set schedule during the week. With an occasional outing.
You have five clothing stores you shop at with three you consider a favorite while one gets the bulk of your business.
You find your feel frustrated when shopping at a store you are unfamiliar with when you are looking for a specific list of items.
The majority of items in your grocery cart are the same items from the last two weeks.
You have five or less favorite outfits that you regularly wear although you have a closet full of clothes.
You buy your gas for your car at the same station as long as it’s within 2 cents of other gas stations.
You purchase on impulse when a greater positive has transpired in your life or as a need to pick yourself up emotionally.
After hearing a song you like repeatedly over duration of time of two weeks you will start to lose the emotional connection with that song and will seek another song to replace it.
You have the same bed and wakeup routine 95% of the time.
You toggle between 3 radio stations while listening to the radio in your car.
You have 3 sources for news information with one being the first place you go to for news.
You are visually stimulated by a grocery items package without checking what the ingredients actually are. The exception to this is an analytical person.
You will touch and feel the clothing fabric and then revert to the price before placing the item in your cart.
75% of items purchased off the discount rack do not make it into daily use.
Now for personality traits:
Driver Personality: You seek control. Right or wrong you are the Alpha Male. You can be flexible in your thinking if the benefit outweighs the risk. You tend to drive a vehicle of status worthy of a driver personality such as a pickup truck or SUV. You drive over the speed limit even though time is not of the necessity. You can have road rage. At times you are argumentative and your emotions will not allow the other person to win. You make an excellent manager that motivates ba
Expressive Personality: You are open and enjoy socializing most of the time. You are also emotional. You use body language fluidly including your hands when you speak. Your style of cloths and shoes are important to you. You drive a vehicle that expresses your personality such as a convertible, or a car of uniqueness. Color plays an important role in your choice. You also purchase items more than any other personality group ba
Analytical Personality: You love the left hemisphere of your mind. You like numbers, facts and talk radio. You seek information and rarely let emotions get involved in the decision making process unless it is a person of value. When confronted with to much information you need to reassess the situation prior to making a purchase. You’re most happy as an accountant, engineer, professor or the like. You are also most likely to own an import along the lines of a Honda, Toyota, Subaru or Volvo. You’ll leave the BMW to the expressive personality as the dollars do not warrant the purchase of such an expensive model when you can invest your money in something else.
Amiable Personality: You are quite and meek. You flow too easily with the current of life and often feel you are being taken advantage of. You feel uncomfortable in social settings and would rather watch TV or read a book. Sometimes you feel like a social outcast not really fitting in. You make purchases ba
So why do personality traits help me know what you are going to do? Well if you’re an analytical I know which hemisphere of the brain you rely on for decision abilities. You are factual driven and have a mental appetite for knowledge. You could careless about expressive trigger points. I know you are a left hemisphere thinker.
If you are expressive your dominate decision making comes from the right side of your brain. You do well for places like Las Vegas. Whereas the bright lights, audio and visual effects allow you to spend more money than you normally would only to feel guilty about it on the way home. Good news is the guilt will not last long as you will rationalize reasoning for the lost money.
Think of this: If I incorrectly analyze that you are a driver personality and formulate a wrong argument with you I am going to lose the argument either directly or indirectly if you are an analytical personality.
All I need to know about you is what you do for a living, what type of car you drive, what clothes you’re wearing and I will be very accurate.
Now the questions are how do you think and what is your motivation:
What is a Thought?
A thought is the minds interpretation of neurological sensory activity to a given event ba
Emotional Impact Scale
Creating a Reaction to Sensory Input:
The human mind process sensory activity consciously and subconsciously simultaneously. Once the total sum of activity reaches the reaction threshold, a positive or negative reaction takes place. Reaction threshold is part of our primal emotions. The same emotions created by the mind to make a person react to an attack by an animal exist today. As humans have evolved man has developed a cognitive ability ba
Emotional Impact Committed to Memory
When the mind classifies a particular sensory input, such as verbally told, “Turn off the lights because it leads to expensive electric bills!” the mind will recall the emotion attached to the memory as one. The mind attaches the action “turn off the lights” to the negative emotion of “high electric bills”. After memory recall(s), the mind processes this memory to an Automatic State. The subconscious will recall it upon seeing a light on in an unused room in the home and you will find yourself shutting off the light. The decision to shut off the light by the subconscious occurs in an automatic state.
A young child or teenager has no emotional impact to the phrase “turn off the lights” without further explanation and repetitive commands. The emotions tied to the correlation between the number of lights on and the electric bill have nothing to do with the day-to-day life of a young child or teenager. The emotions you feel are directly correlated to the bills that you pay. Paying a bill is presented as a negative due to the implications of ones financial affairs.
The Memory Strength is Dependant on the Emotion Impact
Neutral memories are nonexistent to long-term retrieval. The mind generates positive and negative memories while neglecting neutral memories. This selective process enables a person to learn, think and make decisions by eliminating nonessential memory clutter. Memory is selective and not like replaying a complete movie.
The mind looks to engage current surroundings and match them with previous memories. The mind uses memory plasticity to create like situations out of previous memory to make decisions. Consciously and subconsciously the mind recalls similar memory with a “like” scale rating for the decision making process.
The above details why you will over spend while grocery shopping on an empty stomach. Since the food you place in the shopping cart are not immediately eaten satisfying your hunger emotion, you will place more food in the cart to try to stimulate the negative emotion of hunger. Purchasing food is an emotional positive while hunger is an emotional negative. The only way to rectify the overspending is to eat.
This will continue until a greater opposite occurs, such as noticing the amount of groceries that are in the cart (total price) an act of cognitive awareness. Items that are negative or neutral in emotion impact will not make it into your cart after the critical-awareness of total price.
We have gone full circle now. I know who you are personality wise; can accurately predict your decisions and I know fairly certain what you are thinking when presented with an argument. This is some of the same information the CIA, FBI and other agencies use to profile an individual.
I hope you enjoyed the information. If you would please leave a comment below and let me know if this changes how you view people or the decisions you make. Thank you.
