Personality Dimensions® for Education

Hello Educators and Guidance Counsellors!

Personality Dimensions® is the next evolution in temperament theory. It proposes that children are born with certain predispositions; values, joys, strengths, and stressors which translate into different wants and needs.

Developed in Canada and inspired by the work of David Keirsey and Linda Berens, Personality Dimensions® is a tool which gives educators and their students practical ideas on how the various personalities learn, communicate, and interact with each other and how this affects the learning process.

Through playful interaction with four cards describing the characteristics of each temperament – Organized GoldResourceful OrangeInquiring Greenand Authentic Blue – educators and students identify their best fit pattern.

As a Personality Dimensions® Certified Facilitator, you’ll offer your school a practical, hands on approach that addresses a number of areas in the Secondary School setting:
