Relationships

How do you have a good relationship with the different types and how do you nurture and use their strengths? How do you encourage and motivate different personality types and what can you expect from different types? 

Twenty-four values

All types have different values. If you know someone’s values, you know their needs, and if you can give them outlets for their needs, you can give them greater flow and greater happiness. 

You can also identify similarities between yourself and others, and find fun activities you can enjoy together. You can also use this knowledge when organising teams and finding positive activities for the different types.

How to think about different values?

Privacy does not necessarilty mean being alone, but being able to be private with someone else, to sit quietly with another person and to be alone with someone else or to sit in quiet with someone else without interfering and giving them time to form their own opinions. 

Freedom can mean free-flow banter with another person, talking and having fun with someone, or throwing out ideas without judgement or without control from others. Independence can mean being able to have at a new project or a new idea or to spend time exploring a possibility independently. To dig into something and to explore into something. Change can mean being able to adjust and alter plans and to come up with better ways to do things. 

Introspection can mean discussing private and personal issues with another person, to have real conversations about deeper issues. Passion can mean to discuss things that you care about and to show affection towards someone. 

Ambition is to work towards something with someone else, to sit and make plans and to work towards a goal or to meet a challenge. Skill can mean to spend time practising or improving at a task together with someone, to compete and to test your abilities against someone else at a task.

Intelligence can mean to spend time critically evaluating something, to question something or to test your wit in some way. To analyse and to solve puzzles or equations with someone else, or to give someone puzzles and mental exercises, to test their wit. Materialism can mean to compete over resources with someone else, or to play a game over some tangible value with someone. To work together with someone with managing resources or to achieve some kind of reward. 

Discipline can mean to go to the gym together or to set some kind of schedule or outer criteria to meet together, and to test your ability to stick to this schedule. Action means to throw things at another person, to keep them active, to give them a ball to jump for. 

Kindness can mean to give a person an opportunity to help you, to give them something to do for you, to ask them for a service. Honesty can mean to ask someone for their opinion on something or to give them a chance to speak their mind, to show them their opinion is worth something. 

Motivating people of different temperaments and worldviews

When dealing with a leader, a good idea can be to put them in a position where they can spend time working on a task. When dealing with an advisor, you can put them in a position of comfort by putting them in a situation to study something or to analyse a situation in depth. 

If you’re dealing with an explorer, you can give them a chance to charge forward and to explore or research something. And when dealing with a manager, you can put them in a position to execute a project or a plan or to give them a task or something they are responsible for. 

To motivate another person is to give them an opportunity to do something they love. A skilled motivator can convince a person to follow their passions. To give them a positive outlet.
