More about Finding Your FACE

 Many if not all readers are familiar with one or more personality assessments: Carl Jung’s model, DISC, the Myers-Briggs MBTI, the Four Greek Temperaments… With all these existing personality models (and more), why do we need another personality assessment?

This is an excellent question. It’s important for every reader to understand why understanding the FACE Personality Model is important to them. Why should they be interested in reading this book? What does all this research into brain function and personality mean to them?

Let’s look at these existing personality tests and their corresponding models. What do they have in common? What do they do? And more importantly, what don’t they do?

Fortunately, there is a lot of research to help us answer these questions. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken the DISC and the Myers-Briggs MBTI.

While they each have their differences, the research shows that these behavior-based personality models are effective at taking a picture of a person’s behaviors and organizing those behaviors into patterns.

Even more relevant, from those patterns, we can extrapolate other behaviors that may not have been specifically identified in the actual test.

I  can’t emphasize this enough,  that with all of these “behavior-based” personality models, such as DISC, Myers-Briggs, and others, what you get is at best, a snapshot in time of a person’s likely behaviors in one or more situations. Moreover, the effectiveness of these models is based on the presumption that these behaviors do not change over time.

The first difference between the FACE Personality Model and these behavior-based models is that we don’t base our analysis on a person’s behavior. We base our analysis on the person’s dominant brain functions, or you might say their “neurological preferences.”
