#FYP Four Types Of People
This business of working with people can be tricky. Everyone is different! Even though we all want happiness for ourselves and loved ones, what we each need to find that happiness is different based on our values and characteristics.
There are four basic personality types. Everyone is a blend of these four types. Some people are very much one type only – yet others are a blend of two or three. The chart below shows these four types. Notice the Analytical and Driver type personalities are underlined in Blue as they are above the horizontal axis. The Amiable and Expressive are underlined in red as they are below the horizontal axis. The Analytical and Amiable are also underlined in green as they are left o the vertical axis.

All Four Types, Can Thrive
When dealing with these types of people it is a good place to start by first trying to figure out what type you are yourself. Your approach to life, your values and your character type will tend to approach all others as you yourself would like to be approached. If you always use “your” type of approach, you will only have gained the results you want from people who are “just like you”. You will need to change your approach to deal with other personality types.

There are positive and negative characteristics of all four types. (general examples here)
Positive – they are great problem solvers. They find thinking fun.
Negative – they tend to have paralysis through analysis…. Because they are always hungry to think some more, get more information etc. before they act.
Positive – they are very results focused. They get things done
Negative- they often step on toes and hurt feelings and have no idea that they are doing that… simply because they are so results focused they don’t understand how anyone can be hurt – results are what matter!
Positive – they are very caring and courteous
Negative – they tend not to stand on their principles as they are to busy making sure they don’t hurt the person they are with – (ex- today they are with me and support my actions – tomorrow they are with you- you do not like MY way of doing things but today they support you because they are with you)
Positive – they are a lot of fun to be with – they love entertaining and being entertained
Negative – they wont do a thing if it cannot be fun in some way.
