Have you ever felt like someone didn't understand you? Or, maybe, you didn't understand them? Have there been instances in your life where you immediately connected with another person? I'll be laying out a system so simply a baby could understand it. WARNING: This system is so powerful, it will enable you to easily manipulate others. I ask that you employ your highest moral standards when using what I call "Street Psychology". Lets get started. The first step is understanding what are call "Personality Colors". There are only 4 Personality Colors. That makes it pretty simple, right? The 4 Personality Colors are: Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. Lets make this a little more interactive. Take out sheet of paper. Draw a line down the middle of the paper. At the top of the paper, write "Open". At the bottom of the paper, write "Self-contained". Now, draw a line from left to right on that same paper. On the left side of the paper, write "Indirect". On the right side of the paper, write "Direct". You should now have 4 quadrants. In the top left hand quadrant, put "Yellow," which make up 35% of the population. In the bottom left hand quadrant, put "Green," which make up 35% of the population. In the top right hand quadrant, put "Blue," which make up 15% of the population. In the bottom right hand quadrant, put "Red," which make up 15% of the population. When you're finished, your paper should look something like this: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/document-preview.aspx?doc_id=9438704 (Sorry I couldn't embed it) Now, lets get into the characteristics and "hot buttons" - or what like to call "Magic Words" - of each personality. As a matter of fact, lets also touch on occupations.
