Eclectic Energies Enneagram Tests (free)

Copyright © Ewald Berkers These two online Enneagram tests help you to determine which personality type you are. Your wing will also be indicated. Classical enneagram test This test consists of pages containing nine questions or less (one for each Enneagram type). Enneagram test with instinctual variant With this test you are presented with pairs of character traits to rate. Getting accurate results from these Enneagram tests It's important to answer the questions honestly. Actually it is not so easy to answer the questions honestly, as we all want to see ourselves as better than we are, and we often have preconceived ideas about ourselves that are not really true. For instance, if you resent being fearful, you might have worked to develop courage to compensate, but the fear is still there beneath the surface. To derive accurate results from any Enneagram test, it is important to be aware of these very natural tendencies, and to answer the questions honestly. See longer book descriptions

Méthode des six chapeaux Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour cela, chaque participant prend un « chapeau » d'une couleur particulière, lui assignant ou lui reconnaissant un rôle. Ce chapeau peut changer durant la réunion. Il peut aussi être identique à celui d'autres participants. La méthode[modifier | modifier le code] Quand il s'agit d'utiliser la méthode lors d'une réunion, le principe est de faire l’effort d’endosser tous les modes de pensée à tour de rôle (ou de les reconnaître chez les autres intervenants). Ce système a pour vocation de créer un climat de discussion cordial et créatif et facilite la contribution de chacun. On peut résoudre les problèmes plus rapidement en concentrant sa pensée sur la tâche à accomplir. Quand il s'agit d'un management personnel, l'effort se porte sur le changement successif des modes de pensée.

Discipline and Punish, Panopticism The following, according to an order published at the end of the seventeenth century, were the measures to be taken when the plague appeared in a town. First, a strict spatial partitioning: the closing of the town and its outlying districts, a prohibition to leave the town on pain of death, the killing of all stray animals; the division of the town into distinct quarters, each governed by an intendant. Each street is placed under the authority of a syndic, who keeps it under surveillance; if he leaves the street, he will be condemned to death. Inspection functions ceaselessly. Five or six days after the beginning of the quarantine, the process of purifying the houses one by one is begun. If it is true that the leper gave rise to rituals of exclusion, which to a certain extent provided the model for and general form of the great Confinement, then the plague gave rise to disciplinary projects. They are different projects, then, but not incompatible ones.

Coaching Assessments for Life Coaches, Business Coaches, Career Coaches, and Executive Coaches No Batteries Required: 8 Conflict Resolution Tips Learning to deal with emotions in conflict situations helps us be more effective in our professional or personal lives. August 17, 2011 There is an African proverb that says: “Don’t look where you fell, but where you slipped.” When we find ourselves on the conflict carousel, we often tend to lose sight of the root cause of the conflict. It may very well have originated with us, but, once the conflict with a colleague or superior is set in motion, we seem to suffer from temporary, corporate amnesia—the emotional nature of the conflict clouds our objectivity. Learning to deal with emotions in negotiations or conflict situations helps us to be more effective, whether in our professional or personal life. 1. Do you feel heard, understood and valued for your point of view? 2. Are you treated as an adversary and kept at a distance, or are you treated as a colleague? 3. Do you have the freedom to make a decision without feeling that someone else is telling you what to do? 4. 5. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Zeoform: The eco-friendly building material of the future? Zeoform promises a recyclable, low carbon-footprint building material that's as strong as ebony Image Gallery (4 images) Australian company Zeo has developed and patented a glue-free process that creates a strong, versatile new building material out of just cellulose and water. The resulting hardwood-like material known as Zeoform can then be sprayed, molded or shaped into a range of products. And it's not just trees that stand to benefit – Zeoform also promises an eco-friendly alternative to the use of plastics and resins. The environmental advantage of using cellulose as raw material is that, as the most abundant organic compound on Earth, it can be extracted from a wide range of sources including recycled paper, fabrics and plants. The formula used to make Zeoform imitates a natural glue-free process called hydroxyl bonding, whereby cellulose fibers stick together in water. Zeo is launching a crowd-funding campaign October 19th and 20th during the LA Green Festival. About the Author

Personality Revealed By How You Judge Others Watch out, what you say about others may actually be like holding a mirror to yourself. A recent study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology examined “perceiver effects,” a tendency for people to view others as having the same personality and motives as they do. Your IQ, your gender, and your attitude may reveal more about your own personality than you think. Three separate studies were conducted on college undergraduates to determine the extent that personal characteristics affect a person’s perception of other people. Research participants with positive perceptions of others were more likely to be satisfied with their own life. On the flip side, those with negative perceptions of others were more likely to judge others as more extraverted, less agreeable, and less emotionally stable. It gets more interesting. The findings aren’t conclusive or definitive, but they are intriguing. Perceiver effects may in fact be self-perpetuated.

How To Avoid Communication Pitfalls In The Workplace – The Clarion Call to Leadership! This post first appeared on OPEN Idea Forum. There is a large body of work concerning the way women’s communication style differs from that of men. For example, there is research suggesting that females downplay their certainty, while males downplay their doubts. A more reliable way of looking at the issue of communication styles is to look at it from the point of view of personality which is independent of gender. If you are not sure whether you are predominantly a Feeling or Thinking type, you can take a quick quiz here. If we are influenced by stereotypes, we might conclude that the majority of males are overwhelmingly Thinkers while statistics indicate that a whopping 43.5 % of males in the U.S. are Feelers. With this in mind, here are recommendations for improving communication with both types, regardless of gender: Tips for Thinkers: Work on being more approachable. Consider that your style may be intimidating to some team members. Listen without judgment. Tips for Feelers:

michigan taubmancollege Project Title The Stratus Project Faculty Geoff Thün and Kathy Velikov Project Abstract The Stratus Project develops a kinetic interior envelope, seemingly alive with sensors and intelligence, set into motion based on sensory input to affect the atmosphere that it surrounds, and in continual information exchange and dialogue with breather and environment. The first prototype is comprised of a thickly arrayed suspended textile consisting of a tensegrity-based structural weave, diffusing membranes and breathing cells. Research Topics Environmental Design, Serial Fabrication, Responsive Systems, New Material Assemblies and Interactive Media. Project Goals The Stratus Project and its surrounding research aims to attune our attention to our immediate air-based environment and to the physical conditions that produce it. Project Findings As a seed project, the development of a fully operational prototype has been of great value to the overall work. Construction Methods, Materials Used, Research

Eye Direction and Lying - How to detect lies from the direction of an individual's gaze / visual accessing cues. Interesting Info -> Lying Index -> Eye Direction & Visual Accessing Cues Eye Movement and Direction & How it Can Reveal Truth or Lies This is a continuation of our previous article Detecting Lies. Can the direction a person's eyes reveal whether or not they are making a truthful statement? In these shows a detective will deduce if a person is being untruthful simply because they looked to the left or right while making a statement. In reality, it would be foolish to make such a snap judgment without further investigation... but the technique does have some merit. So, here it is... read, ponder and test it on your friends and family to see how reliable it is for yourself. Visual Accessing Cues - "Lying Eyes" The first time "Visual Accessing Cues" were discussed (at least to my knowledge), was by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in their book "Frogs into Princes: Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) " From their experiments this is what they found. The Gist of it... Final Notes: Continue Reading:

Special Projects Deployability Deployability STRUCTURE This deployable system combines two types of connections that allows for a locally responsive deployment. The scissor joint, the first connection type, has one degree of movement. The opposing top and bottom joints are connected by one strut which forces a simultaneous movement between every top and bottom connection in the system. A structure built with purely scissor joints is limited to even, global deployment. The half scissor joint, the second connection type, has one degree of movement but the top and bottom joints do not need to deploy at the same rate. SURFACE The surface for this structure is an adaptation of a Ron Resch’s triangular deployable surface. The Ron Resch surface was redesigned to connect to the underlying structure with these hexagonal joints. RESEARCH Deployable structure is understood through its surface packing and its part to part connections. Project Credits:

360days/year Pacific Beach, San Diego Pacific Beach north of Crystal Pier The Crystal Pier at sunset. Pacific Beach looking north, Crystal Pier in the distance Pacific Beach is a neighborhood in San Diego, bounded by La Jolla to the north, Mission Beach and Mission Bay to the south, Interstate 5 to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.[1] While formerly largely populated by young people, surfers, and college students, because of rising property and rental costs the population is gradually becoming older, more professional, and more affluent. The Beach[edit] Streets[edit] The east-west streets are mostly named after precious stones. History[edit] Pacific Beach was developed during the boom years of 1886-1888 by D. As with many California cities, the history of its development can be traced back to the completion of a cross-country railroad in the late 1880s. Today, Pacific Beach is home to a younger crowd, including college students, single professionals, and families. Education[edit] Parks[edit] Organizations[edit]

Arthrogryposis Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint contractures in two or more areas of the body. It derives its name from Greek, literally meaning "curving of joints" (arthron, "joint"; grȳpōsis, late Latin form of late Greek grūpōsis, "hooking").[1] Children born with one or more joint contractures have abnormal fibrosis of the muscle tissue causing muscle shortening, and therefore are unable to do passive extension and flexion in the affected joint or joints.[2] AMC has been divided into three groups: amyoplasia, distal arthrogryposis, and syndromic. Amyoplasia is characterized by severe joint contractures and muscle weakness.[3] Distal arthrogryposis mainly involves the hands and feet. Epidemiology[edit] Arthrogryposis is a rare condition. Classification[edit] Some of the different types of AMC include: Signs and Symptoms[edit] Causes[edit] Extrinsic factors[edit] Intrinsic Factors[edit] Arthrogryposis could also be caused by intrinsic factors.
