True Colors

From Calendar: Lima Location

Event Description:

Imagine, finally understanding why people behave the way they do!

True Colors® is a model for understanding yourself and others based on your personality temperament.

The colors of Orange, Gold, Green, and Blue are used to differentiate the four central True Colors® personality styles. Each of us has a combination of the four True Colors that make up our personality spectrum, usually with one of the styles being the most dominant. By identifying your personality (and the personalities of others), True Colors provides insights into different motivations, actions, and communication approaches. The core of the system identifies intrinsic values, motivations, self-esteem, sources of dignity and worthiness, causes of stress, communication styles, listening styles, non-verbal responses, language patterns, social skills, learning styles, environmental motivators, cultural appeal, negative mental states, relationship orientation and ethical behaviors.
