Everyone has their own unique values and interests. What is your personality type? My name is Erik Thor and I have studied personality psychology for many years now and discovered many secrets to human behavior. I develop personality tests, videos, articles, and theories that can help people understand each other better.
1. Learn To Read Minds
I think people are way too self-absorbed. We should pay more attention to others, our friends, our family, our coworkers, and we should learn how they think, and what they feel. A person who can read minds and can understand people is also going to be a better friend.
2. Learn about the different MBTI types
An MBTI personality type has a combination of values that are unique to their personality type. Free-spiritedness, honesty, diversity, passion, that’s for the ENFP personality type. Humility, discipline, ambition and critical thinking, that is for the ISTJ.
3. Start Developing Your Cognitive Functions
Everyone has a set of mental processes that literally occupy your mind and thinking on a daily basis. A person that can master and recognise their own mind and thinking patterns will become less prone to mental fallacies and cognitive bias. Make sure your mind is working for you, not against you.
What is your flow type?
The study of personality types and personality psychology can teach you how to maintain a positive state of flow. Using Carl Jung’s theories, I have created a system of sixteen flow types. Every flow type has a set of interests, hobbies, values, and actions that will put them in a positive state of energy, motivation and confidence. What is your type of flow?
Personality psychology has a way of pinpointing how we work and makes us feel understood. It also helps us become better at motivating ourselves. It can help you find the right career and it can help you find more happiness and joy in life. As you become better at understanding other people, you also find yourself developing interpersonal skills, and become better at dealing with other people.
The Personality types
Perhaps you have heard of the DiSC personality instrument, that groups personality types into four colours. If you’re already familiar with this theory you can also use it to understand the MBTI. In the MBTI, there are sixteen personality types, of which four are versions of the DiSC personality types. The other twelve are combinations of the different colours. Perhaps you were always a mix or red and blue? Find out now.
What you see here are four common groupings of personality types. The proactives tend to always be focused on doing something. They are dominant and competitive and know how to get results. The Dreamers are idealistic and harmony-seeking. They like to help out and to have a positive impact on the world, but struggle to get their voice heard. The Influencers tend to be cheery and positive and enjoy making friends and building communities. And the blue rationals like to work on their ideas and to create projects and new designs.

The ESTJ personality type is active, productive, and dominant. They like to compete and to get their voice heard. They’re not unfamiliar to fighting for what they want and know how to get what they want. They’re one of the four proactives.
Private, blunt, and focused on accuracy, the blue INTP types like to study and think about life theoretically. The focus is on what things may be and how things really work. The INTP tries to develop and innovate and create new things, using knowledge and research and rational prowess. They represent one of the four rationals.
ENFJs tend to love talking about dreams and opportunities with other people. They have wild ideas and love to work long-term towards a grand project or idea. They embody the color of red, passionate, opportunities, visions, and being close to the community. They represent one of the four dreamers.
The ESFP is social and good at making friends and connections with others. Lively and energetic, they tend to be influential types that want to set a positive example in the community. They like to play and they like to have fun with others and prefer to live in the now rather than worry about what is to come. And they represent one of the four Influencers.
Beyond the above four, there are sixteen personality types in total and all have different personality traits. They think and see the world in a unique way, different than everyone else. Your personality type is your hero code and defines what you think it means to be a hero or to be in flow.
The Red ESTP finds flow in action, spontaneity and problem-solving. The Green INFP in philosophy, change, and doing the right thing ethically. But there are also ENTP and ISTP personality types and many more.
