Architects need not be thought of as only interested in drawing blueprints for buildings or roads or bridges. They are the master designers of all kinds of theoretical systems, including school curricula, corporate strategies, and new technologies. For Architects, the world exists primarily to be analyzed, understood, explained - and re-designed. External reality in itself is unimportant, little more than raw material to be organized into structural models. What is important for Architects is that they grasp fundamental principles and natural laws, and that their designs are elegant, that is, efficient and coherent. Architects are rare - maybe one percent of the population - and show the greatest precision in thought and speech of all the types. Ruthless pragmatists about ideas, and insatiably curious, Architects are driven to find the most efficient means to their ends, and they will learn in any manner and degree they can. Architects often seem difficult to know.
Understand People Using the DISC Personality Concept Download this article (PDF) by Robert A. Rohm, Ph.D. Each Person has Unique Personality Traits Each person's perspective is built into who they are. Some people call it “personality” and some refer to it as “temperament.” Ever notice how different that your family and friends can be from you? The starting point of understanding people is to realize and accept one simple fact: Everyone is not like you! Have you ever said the same thing to two people and received two totally different reactions? Different is not bad, it is just different! There IS a Simple Way to Understand People! The good news is that there is a simple key to understand how people behave and how they are motivated. Some Background on the DISC Model of Human Behavior Twenty-four hundred years ago, scientists and philosophers, most notably Hippocrates, began to recognize and categorize differences in behavior that seemed to follow a pattern. Since then, many psychologists and scientists have explored behavioral patterns.
TypeLogic Home Page 16 Personality Factors The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (or 16PF), is a multiple-choice personality questionnaire which was developed over several decades of research by Raymond B. Cattell, Maurice Tatsuoka and Herbert Eber. Beginning in the 1940s, Cattell used the new techniques of factor analysis (based on the correlation coefficient) in an attempt to try to discover and measure the source traits of human personality (Cattell, 1946)(Nevid, 2009). The questionnaire measures the 16 primary traits, and the Big Five secondary traits, which have become popularized by other authors in recent years. From early in his research, Cattell found that the structure of personality was multi-level and hierarchical, with a structure of interdependent primary and secondary level traits (Cattell, 1946, 1957). The sixteen primary factors were a result of factor-analyzing hundreds of measures of everyday behaviors to find the fundamental traits behind them. Outline of Test

A Tale of Two Sisters Photo by Sasha Maslov The “Magnificent Seven” members of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team captivated the world at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, earning the country its first-ever all-around team gold medal. The youngest member of the team, 14-year-old Dominique Moceanu, had also been the country’s youngest-ever all-around individual national champion a year earlier. By the end of the Games, she was idolized by thousands of aspiring young gymnasts—and, as she would later discover, one little girl in particular. Moceanu’s life took several turns after her gold-medal performance: In 1998, at 17, she sued for emancipation from her parents, Romanian natives and former gymnasts who she claimed had squandered her earnings and been overly controlling, especially her father. In 2006, she married Michael Canales, a podiatric surgeon who had been a varsity gymnast at Ohio State. And then it did. Moceanu carried the envelope to her car, parked near a Walmart.
