Personality Analysis Reality: People Don’t Really Ever Change Much

Monday, February 11th, 2013
Share Button

When is the last time someone you know well changed so much that you didn’t readily recognize his or her unique character? Never. It simply doesn’t happen. A tiger doesn’t change its stripes, as the saying goes.

False optimism about “completely reinventing” oneself abounds in the self-help marketplace today. As is so often the case, inspirational themes clash with reality. I’m all for inspiration–inspiration rooted in realism.

Discipline and perseverance can lead to small, incremental change, such as finally kicking unhealthy habits, but your overall character remains the same.

It’s been said that humans are impulsive and capricious. While I agree with that to a point, within a larger context people are largely predictable. The framework of predestination, constantly outlined through comprehensive astrology and numerology, along with immutable personality qualities discerned through handwriting analysis, time and time again support my contention.

Have you ever tried to change an introvert into a cold-calling sales dynamo, or a Neanderthal basic male into a brilliant literary icon? How about transforming someone who thrives on partnerships and can’t be alone into a solo-entrepreneur or an eremite? Anything is possible, right? Wrong. Your true nature is what it is and doesn’t change very much.

You are who you are—be grateful and make the most of it. Also, never try to change another person; accept them as they are and don’t hold them accountable. Expecting another to change only leads to disappointment.

“It’s easier to move a mountain than change a person’s character.”
Chinese proverb

“When two people decide to get a divorce, it isn’t a sign that they don’t understand one another, but a sign that they have, at last, begun to.”

Finding Your Optimum Career Path

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Career and personality profiling self-test quizzes can be found all over the Internet. AOL Jobs features a test based on choosing your favorite colors designed to measure career satisfaction.

Skimming the comments under the above-linked article, these stand out:

“SIMPLE MINDED TEST FOR SIMPLE MINDS—————-NOT EVEN CLOSE.”

“I also agree with the statement – what does this have to do with the ‘real’ world?”

“How totally ridiculous. The commentary is so general any combination would reach a majority of users (self-fulfilling prophecy). Try this; pick one side of the page. If you picked left it means you are warm, personable, stable. If you picked right it means you are stable, personable, warm. WOW!”

“This test needs to be specific. It’s too general. (For example)…I love the color red for my sofa, but I won’t ever buy red clothing because I hate the way I look in red.”

“I can’t believe someone actually got paid to write this rubbish or that I wasted my time reading such nonsense. This entire paradigm is as useless as the Myers-Briggs bullshit that was popular in the late 80s, early 90s…and when we took the test, many of us gave the complete opposite answer of what we felt on every fifth question. I often wonder how much money they wasted on such crap and if they ever found out the results were completely worthless given the phony answers we submitted.”

The problem with personality analysis self-tests is that they are too subjective and they can be gamed.

While I’m not entirely opposed to such evaluations, I caution anyone relying on these types of assessments exclusively.

It’s also essential to identify specific personality strengths and challenges; handwriting analysis effectively outlines authentic personality, far better than self-tests and quizzes.

The Life Purpose Package offers dynamic results, revealing your unique talents, and which parts of your personality require more focus. It allows you to save incredible amounts of time and money by finally being fully aware of what is right for you and what isn’t, in relation to your career and life purpose.

The Career Compatibility and Assistance Guide (first option on this page), included in the Life Purpose Package, is a valuable resource too.

It’s a good idea to employ several different types of personality and career path appraisals, and to get objective feedback from qualified professionals and those who know you well.

Exposing 7 Menacing Subconscious Personality Defenses

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012
Share Button

You have free will to make the most of your life, yet there are things in life that you can’t control, such as other people’s behavior and the risk they pose to you.

Embracing the illusion that you can spend a few hours or so (or even months) with someone and gain an understanding of their true personality—all the masked problem traits—is one of the biggest threats to your business and personal related risk.

Understanding the authentic nature of key individuals in your life can go a long way toward reducing your risk.

In order to do a handwriting analysis assessment within ethical boundaries, under normal conditions, the subject must first give their consent. Typically, potential new hire assessments, for example, wouldn’t include the analysis of the sorts of negative attributes below because they are unrelated to the personality qualities needed to successfully do the job.

However, dangerous circumstances such as a person’s livelihood being at risk, or otherwise having to deal with a bad character may well necessitate an analysis involving the types of personality traits featured in this article.

Select clinical behavioral terms (and other extreme phrases and descriptions) are listed here to illustrate the usefulness of the science. These and more are measurable by handwriting analysis: “narcissistic,” “prejudiced,” “evasive,” “envious,” “paranoid,” “confrontational,” “sadistic,” “emotionally unbalanced,” “mental disorder,” “dejected,” “depressed,” “psychotic,” “vindictive,” “deceitful,” “domineering,” “dumb,” “psychosis,” “pathological,” “duplicitous,” “two-faced,” “hot-tempered,” “lacking in integrity,” and “dishonest.”

Subconscious defense patterns are generally very tough to modify and include some of the most threatening and troubling personality traits.

Examples of resistance-type defenses include aggressiveness, domineering behavior, defiance, and resentment.

Examples of acute escape-type defense patterns (which are commonly more difficult to modify than the four listed above) include severe evasiveness, self-deception, and secretiveness.

A potential business partner, associate, romantic interest, or other significant individual in your life possessing such perilous personality qualities as lack of emotional balance, excessive rationalization, resentment, and insincerity would be a disaster, particularly when the subject possesses astuteness and cunning (all of which are straightforwardly assessed in handwriting analysis).

As one of the most effective means of identifying genuine personality, including red flag matters like those listed above, handwriting analysis gives you an immense advantage in helping you to limit your risk.

The Futility of Psychological Self-Tests: 2 Key Problems

Sunday, April 1st, 2012
Share Button

Countless psychological self-tests and compatibility analyses can be found on the Internet, and even many dating sites today have these sorts of evaluations in an attempt to improve matching success.

There are two problems with these self-tests:

  1. Actual personality and compatibility can’t be determined because self-tests are subjective and lacking in objectivity. A person filling out a self-report test invariably figures out the intent of the questions and answers how he or she believes they should answer to yield the most appropriate results.
  2. Besides not being able to accurately assess select personality areas, self-tests don’t assess key variables of real-life interaction, such as personality red-flag factors including complex fears and defenses.

Relying on dating site self-tests to screen potential romantic partners, for example, even those that are touted to include sophisticated “matching algorithms,” is a losing proposition.

Associate Professor of Social Psychology at Northwestern University Eli Finkel, in an article in the journal of the Association for Psychological Science says, “To date, there is no compelling evidence that any online dating matching algorithm actually works…our report concludes that it is unlikely that their algorithms can work, even in principle, given the limitations of the sorts of matching procedures that these sites use.”  More information here:
http://www.psychologicalscience.org/index.php/news/releases/grading-the-online-dating-industry.html

Although select self-tests can offer some interesting insight, such as serving as an opportunity for a team-building exercise, exclusive reliance on them invites trouble since they can be manipulated.

Alternatively, handwriting analysis is one of the most objective and non-discriminatory forms of personality analysis, giving you a distinct advantage, dramatically reducing your risk. http://scottpetullo.com/blog/2011/09/addressing-handwriting-analysis-skepticism/

5 of the Worst Personality Analysis Mistakes

Monday, February 20th, 2012
Share Button

Understanding true personality strengths and weaknesses is vital for your career, business, and personal life success. It can save you an enormous amount of time and money if you get it right, yet misinterpreting personality can ruin you.

Myers-Briggs

Although I believe psychological self-tests such as Myers-Briggs can help determine social inclination, or even be a somewhat useful part of a pre-employment evaluation program, for example, everybody knows you’re on your best behavior while taking self-tests.

It’s impossible to acquire an adequately defined view of abilities and potential personality problem areas exclusively from self-tests, even if they are “psychologist approved.” The self-tests can be gamed.

Enneagram

The Enneagram (or Ennegram) personality typing system is another popular method, relying on only nine categories, including “The Reformer,” “The Helper,” “The Achiever,” “The Individualist,” “The Investigator,” “the Loyalist,” “The Enthusiast,” “The Challenger,” and “The Peacemaker.

Essentially, in using such a method, you’re observing a person’s behavior for a period of time, sometimes a very brief period of time, and selecting one of the nine categories, or perhaps more than one.

Let’s see, this person appears (never mind that it could very well be her business persona, and not her real personality) to be rational, people-pleasing, driven and success-oriented, responsible and engaging, versatile and spontaneous, and willful and self-confident.

The above listed traits are specifically from six of the nine Enneagram categories, so that makes her a “Reformer—Helper—Achiever—Loyalist—Enthusiast—Challenger.”

Wait a minute, someone identified her the next day as a “Peacemaker” (agreeable, receptive, reassuring), because “She is so nice; we clicked so well!”

Well, why not just place her and everyone else in all nine categories?

Are you starting to see a problem with this sort of assessment?

Considering some of the negative personality traits from seven of the nine categories, the following are created: the “perfectionistic Reformer,” “possessive Helper,” “self-absorbed and temperamental Individualist,” “secretive and isolated Investigator,” “anxious and suspicious Loyalist,” “scattered Enthusiast,” and “confrontational Challenger.”

Unfortunately, it’s entirely possible someone might possess none of those negative personality traits, or alternatively, even several from multiple categories.

Regrettably, you’re only going to be scratching the surface of authentic personality if you lack an objective system of analysis. In other words, without set standards of interpretation that disallow partiality, guessing at someone’s “type” won’t give you accurate results, and you certainly can’t rely entirely on fill-in-the blank and multiple choice self-tests to delineate true personality.

Instead of oversimplified assessment methods that can’t identify distinct individual strengths and challenges, you need a more comprehensive (and objective) method such as handwriting analysis that can accurately delineate specific personality red flags and talents.

Included below are five common personality analysis mistakes:

  1. Making the erroneous assumption that the complex human personality can be crammed into only one or a few personality types. Expecting consistently accurate character and compatibility analyses with subjective personality typing systems is like expecting to become an overnight millionaire through Internet marketing (less than 5% of all Internet marketers succeed, and far fewer have become millionaires).
  2. Attempting to identify your “blind spots” or strengths through subjective analysis such as with a personality typing system—you need someone outside yourself and a more objective system.
  3. Making the false assumption you can simply look for “cues,” “particular language,” or “specific behaviors” in other people to type them and assess their character accurately (unless you have them under a microscope for hours, including high-stress situations, and you’re a trained psychologist, it’s impossible for the average person to do this, even with “Internet guru advice”).
  4. Erroneously (and astonishingly mindlessly) believing you can predict another person’s future behavior while under pressure exclusively with subjective and self-test personality typing systems.
  5. Mistakenly thinking you can discern subconscious motivations and compatibility from mere subjective and self-test personality typing systems.

I strongly recommend the use of a range of evaluations, including handwriting analysis, in conjunction with other psychological testing methods to determine authentic personality and, or if a person’s abilities match the demands of the job.

Handwriting analysis, in conjunction with comprehensive astrology and numerology, is invaluable to reduce your risk because it can’t be manipulated and absolutely assesses actual personality–subconscious character—well beyond the persona when an individual is at their best, such as when they know they are being scrutinized.

Strong Analytical Ability: How to Identify it Before Hiring

Monday, November 21st, 2011
Share Button

An aptitude for considering all facets of an issue and extracting essential information is crucial for successful workplace problem solving.

Strong analytical ability, persistence, consistency, determination, and other skills are characteristics of the exceptional employee that helps to streamline complex work processes and safeguard your company’s survival and profitability.

Hiring an employee who seems to have strong analytical ability and then later finding out that they don’t can be costly.

How do you find out if someone really has the type of effective analytical ability that can help strengthen your company’s competitiveness?

You could ask a potential hire to discuss how they’ve successfully problem-solved on the job, and how they rate their analytical ability. Personality profiling tests can also help.

Additionally, it’s recommended to evaluate your potential employees with a more objective form of character assessment before you make a job offer.

Handwriting analysis is one of the most non-discriminatory, objective, and accurate forms of personality analysis.

It’s important to note that while under pressure and stress, the true personality appears. The authentic personality, the subconscious self, is effectively examined through handwriting analysis.

Analytical ability can be thoroughly and accurately determined through handwriting analysis, helping you to reduce your exposure to risk.

Handwriting Analysis and Motivations: What Really Motivates You?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011
Share Button

“What motivates you?” is a typical job interview question. While there may not be a wrong answer to this, you can be sure that the interviewer has an idea of what they want to hear.

For example, a successful commission salesperson is very likely to be motivated by money, not altruism.

One of the most pressing workplace dilemmas is effectively matching job demands to true motivations and skills.

An interviewer may be convinced that leadership predominantly motivates an applicant, only to find out a year later that the person’s true motivation is social involvement. Sharing one’s enthusiasm for what they liked best about prior career accomplishments can be misleading.

Although a job applicant may not tell you about their true motivations, it may not be their fault. Self-assessment is notoriously inaccurate simply because most people just don’t thoroughly know themselves. Subconscious motivations often differ greatly from consciously perceived ones.

Handwriting analysis is one of the most objective methods to assess personality and true motivations. Whether it’s financial rewards, personal accomplishments, healthy competition, creativity, or other motivations, handwriting analysis accurately determines true motivations.

Reduce your risk and save an enormous amount of time and money by identifying true motivations through handwriting analysis.

5 Possible Ways to Understand and Outmaneuver Your Enemy

Monday, July 18th, 2011
Share Button

To outsmart your rival, you need a thorough understanding of that person.

Even the most trivial detail about your adversary’s personality could be used to gain an advantage in negotiations or other competitive matters, yet most facets of character are buried deep in the unconscious, below the persona that is presented to the world. Everyone has their own distinctive weaknesses and strengths.

Five possible methods to grasp the true nature of your rival, giving you the edge necessary to prevail are listed below.

1. Contact your opponent and ask him to complete a multiple choice, fill-in-the blank self-test personality evaluation. Make sure to request that he answers the questions honestly, since self-assessments can be manipulated. Unfortunately, this option probably isn’t viable.
2. Meet with your management staff, even though they don’t know the adversary and aren’t experts in personality analysis, in an attempt to inspire ideas about the adversary’s hidden personality. Regrettably, this would most likely amount to oblivious speculation, yielding a complete lack of actionable intelligence.
3. Hire a good psychologist to analyze his character, although the psychologist would likely demand an in-person assessment, and it’s doubtful your foe will be receptive to the idea.
4. Hire a security investigations firm to dig up secret information about him and his true character, which would probably involve interviewing former associates and those who are or have been close to him (if they are willing). Although this option often produces great results, you must be willing to pay a very minimum of $2000 and frequently $7500 and up for the most competent specialists. The other concern with this option is that the subject can appear to be “clean” (no criminal history, no noticeable bad reputation, etc.), but still be a master villain and a genius at evading detection.
5. Hire a reliable expert who employs handwriting analysis and comprehensive astrology and numerology to delineate his authentic, veiled personality. All it takes is a sample of his script (e.g., a brief handwritten letter), and his birth data (full date of birth at a minimum, preferably with exact time, location, and full, legal birth name).

Please note: clinical behavioral terms (and other extreme expressions and conditions) such as “narcissistic,” “prejudiced,” “evasive,” “envious,” “paranoid,” “confrontational,” “sadistic,” “defiant,” “emotionally unbalanced,” “mental disorder,” “dejected,” “depressed,” “psychotic,” “vindictive,” “deceitful,” “domineering,” “dumb,” “psychosis,” “pathological,” “duplicitous,” “two-faced,” “hot-tempered,” “lacking in integrity,” and “dishonest” aren’t typically addressed in assessments related to potential hires (or other, similar situations) because they are unrelated to the personality qualities needed to successfully do a job.

In order to do an assessment under normal conditions within ethical boundaries, the subject first allows permission for the formal analysis. Circumstances and instances in this article are only to illustrate the usefulness of handwriting analysis and comprehensive astrology and numerology.

Extreme situations such as an innocent person’s life being at risk and, or dealing with a dangerous criminal might warrant an analysis involving the types of personality characteristics featured in this article.

The handwriting analysis, and comprehensive astrology and numerology assessment might reveal, for example, one or more of the following results, which could give you a substantial edge in how you might approach your adversary:

1. Excessive desire for acquisition of money (knowing their motivations can greatly assist you and, or alert you to potential liability, such as in personal relationships).
2. A savior complex (would “do the right thing,” excessively, to his detriment).
3. Excessive vanity, narcissism (he could be manipulated through excessive praise and admiration).
4. Excessive rationalization, self-deception, excessive fantasy oriented thinking and, or lack of objectivity (might fool himself into settling for something less than he would otherwise, might lack a solid sense of discernment, especially while under excessive stress).
5. Excessive restlessness (might abandon negotiations too soon).
6. Perfectionism and, or excessive attention to detail (could get lost in the finer points of an undertaking, missing the bigger picture).
7. Problematic emotional balance and emotional maturity (emotional problems and lapsing into a childish disposition while under pressure could easily lead to his losing focus, thus his edge).
8. Excessive resentment (inability to let go of past wrongs could trip him up, and additional perceived injustices could break his concentration, forcing him into making a mistake).
9. Excessive sensitivity to criticism and, or excessive inhibition (knowing this could allow you to force him into being distracted).
10. Excessive secretiveness and, or evasiveness (expecting a lack of transparency can help you in your tactics).
11. Excessive lack of integrity (knowing you’re dealing with someone who has great difficulty living by his asserted convictions can help prepare you for the worst).
12. Excessive dishonesty (knowing the person is insincere, a liar and, or a deceiver can save you enormous hassles).
13. Excessive conflict avoidance (he could be manipulated into taking a less strife-oriented route, giving you the ability to steer him in the direction you choose).
14. Defiance and, or stubbornness (if you know your opponent may resort to unreasonable, unyielding behavior, you can plan accordingly).
15. Excessive tendency to bluff (expecting your adversary to bluff will allow you to more easily spot it when it happens).

As calculating and cold as it may seem, sometimes you’re forced to fight fire with fire. Greatly decrease your vulnerability and exposure to risk using handwriting analysis and comprehensive astrology and numerology, allowing you a clearer path to success.

Q&A: Self-awareness Doesn’t Negate Who You Are

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011
Share Button

Question:
Hello I’m 22 years old and I’m fascinated by astrology. Does knowing your sign and your birth chart information such as the planets in the signs and their degrees affect you? For example, if I know that my Mars is in Scorpio at 9 degrees, and I read the description for the placement and it says you’re aggressive, secretive, etc., by knowing the description does it have the reverse effect and make me not aggressive or secretive? I tend to be conscious of them and their descriptions and I feel that by knowing them that I will no longer possesses these signs and position that I was born under.

Answer:
Self-knowledge is a step in the right direction to try to help mitigate negative, inborn personality traits. Also, hypnosis audios, affirmations, and positive thinking can certainly help with self-growth and to get more out of life.

However, my findings firmly indicate that it won’t help you eradicate much of your personality (the personality features you can’t change); you can only “rise above” so much. Please see this blog post about what you can and can’t control in your life:
http://scottpetullo.com/blog/2011/05/fate-vs-free-will-you-can%E2%80%99t-choose-your-tests-in-life-but-you-can-prepare/

It’s important to understand that in astrology, there is no “this (single indicator) means that (distinct personality trait).”

As an example, above you equate Mars in the sign of Scorpio as “aggressive, secretive, etc.” The truth is that out of all the people who have Mars in Scorpio, some aren’t aggressive and secretive at all, some are only moderately aggressive and secretive, and some are very aggressive and secretive.

One factor, such as Mars in Scorpio in your basic natal chart, is only a hint—one that you need to follow up on by weighing the other 500+ indicators (the patterns those indicators form) in the comprehensive charts. Handwriting analysis and numerology also help to round out a solid system of checks and balances.

Genuine astrology really is as complex as any language to learn. Also, the Internet is the black-hole of astrology (and numerology and handwriting analysis) misinformation. Please see this blog post regarding the matter:
http://scottpetullo.com/blog/2011/05/astrology-accuracy-5-reasons-your-astrology-isn%E2%80%99t-accurate/

You may think you’re able to eternally triumph over your character deficiencies, but you probably aren’t even fully aware of them, and to the degree in which you possess them. Furthermore, while under pressure, your unique subconscious fears and defenses will emerge–you can count on that. Repressing who you are only works for so long before it surfaces, like trying to hold a beach ball under water.

Even so, seeking self-knowledge and awareness of others is commendable and allows you to reduce your overall level of risk. Just make sure to go about it beyond surface techniques.

7 Requirements to Discover True Compatibility

Monday, June 6th, 2011
Share Button

One of the most common inquiries I receive is whether or not two people are compatible (romantically or professionally).

Modern astrology approaches the matter employing the basic natal chart of each through “synastry,” where Ptolemaic aspects and connections between the houses and planets are outlined. They might also compare elements (fire, air, water earth), or other elementary components of the basic natal charts.

Unfortunately, such an approach offers very low accuracy rates, particularly involving computerized reports. The heartfelt prose, references to “consciousness” and Jungian concepts (warping the tenets of ancient astrology with psychological notions), and stunning imagery, which is an important part of escapist spirituality, only serve to obfuscate the uselessness of modern astrological methodologies. As unsympathetic as this may sound, it’s important to point out because the awareness can save you an enormous amount of time and hassle.

Relentlessly, the collective findings from handwriting analysis and comprehensive charting involving astrology and numerology reveal that favored modern astrological methods such as synastry, progressions, transits, lunar and solar returns, and others are only suitable to top off an existing, comprehensive analysis. Alone, they aren’t worthwhile.

The following must be done to discover true compatibility:

  1. Thoroughly outline each person’s personality through handwriting analysis. In doing so you uncover subconscious character, identifying key relationship issues, such as level of self-esteem, emotional maturity, conflict avoidance, withdrawal, fear of intimacy, and restlessness.
  2. Thoroughly outline each person’s personality through comprehensive astrology and numerology, using tried and true ancient methodologies.
  3. Thoroughly delineate each person’s collective timing through comprehensive astrology and numerology, using tried and true ancient methodologies.
  4. Acknowledge that (relating to romantic connections) some people, overall, have rewarding life-long love karma, some people have fair life-long love karma, and others have challenging life-long love karma; you find out which sort through the above-mentioned analyses.
  5. Recognize that one’s collective personal timing, if favorable in relation to love life, can symbolically somewhat mitigate one’s life-long challenging love life karma. Alternatively, tough personal timing can, representatively, seriously impede one’s love life.
  6. Understand that although some connections include questionable compatibility on a personality level, shared collective harmonious timing can function largely as the base of the connection and make it more agreeable.
  7. Recognize that the “unexplainable draw” (frequently in the beginning) in largely, overall discordant connections shouldn’t be confused with blessings or reward—the intense attraction in this case serves to help them fulfill the karmic plan, however ultimately unpleasant from a non-spiritual perspective.

In determining true compatibility, you increase your awareness, deepen your understanding of another, and dramatically reduce your risk.
