Cracking the PERSONALITY Code is your guide to the FACE Personality Model, a Brain-Based Personality Model, designed to help us understand the source of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The most important thing about the FACE Personality Model and this user’s guide is to HAVE FUN!
While it may seem like a contradiction, it is important not to take this information personally. I want to caution all readers not to impose morality or judgment on to these personality traits.
The FACE Personality Model is about understanding, not judging or criticizing. It is about knowing yourself. It is about understanding Why we do the things we do: why we think, feel, and behave the way we do.
There are no bad personalities. There are good behaviors and there are bad behaviors, but there are no bad personalities.
This is just one more reason why it is critical to separate personality from behavior. You are your personality. You do your behaviors.
Unlike previous personality models, such as the DISC or Myers-Briggs, which base their assessments on behavior, the FACE Personality Model is based on brain function and brain dominance.
The FACE Personality Model is a breakthrough in personality and relationship analysis in that it goes beyond a mere snapshot of our behaviors and, instead, identifies the specific brain functions and neurological tendencies as the source of those behaviors.
We’ve gone to great lengths to make this information available to everyone. In writing this manual, we’ve tried to keep the language plain and simple.
In some places, we’ve used a formal, more organized structure to present the information. In other areas, we stayed with the original dialogue to give the reader a sense of the personal nature and application of the information.
Please note that in our efforts to improve understanding and readability, we have, in places, taken some “literary license” and strayed from rigorous grammatical standards.
For these deviations as well as any other grammatical errors which we may have missed in our efforts to make this information available, we humbly request your patience and offer our sincere apologies.
If you’ve been wanting to improve your relationships, your job performance, your ability to learn, or if you’d just like to feel better about yourself and your choices, the FACE Personality Model may be just what you’ve been looking for.
As you gain insight into yourself and others, try to remember:
Your past does not equal your future.
Behavior does not equal personality.
Above all, be patient with yourself and others.
