  19. 19. How Personality Types Choose Majors <ul><li>Guardians often pick a major and stick with it even if they don’t enjoy it in an effort to please their family. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans often need to experiment and try many different majors before finding the right fit. </li></ul><ul><li>Idealists often do not explore how much they can potentially earn in a career and end up dissatisfied with their income level after graduation, often finding themselves returning to school for an advanced degree to increase their income potential. </li></ul><ul><li>Rationals often choose a career path while in high school but later discover more intriguing majors once they enter college. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Perfection and Overachievement <ul><li>Guardians are they most likely to be labeled a perfectionist. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans are the least likely to be labeled a perfectionist but they still can be considered overachievers. </li></ul><ul><li>Idealists are more likely to turn their ideas into reality. </li></ul><ul><li>Rationals are most likely to keep increasing their standards as their desire for knowledge increases. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Parenting Styles <ul><li>Guardians – preferred form or discipline is rules and consequences and believe children need to learn discipline. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans – preferred form of discipline is the “school of hard knocks” and believe that children should learn flexibility. </li></ul><ul><li>Idealists – preferred form of discipline is “do we have to?” and believe that children should learn who they are. </li></ul><ul><li>Rationals – preferred form of discipline is logical consequence and believe that children should learn how to think. </li></ul>
  22. 22. How to get Along with Your Boss <ul><li>Guardian bosses usually prefer you to focus on what they think is important and take action when they give you instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisan bosses usually prefer you to be aware of what is presently happening around you and be prepared in case of an emergency. </li></ul><ul><li>Idealist bosses usually prefer you to always try to display a positive attitude at work. </li></ul><ul><li>Rational bosses usually prefer you to come up with new ideas for improving the way things are conducted in the office. </li></ul>
  23. 23. How to Recognize Stress <ul><li>Guardians usually complain that they are sad, tired, or feeling under the weather when they are stressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans usually enjoy challenges and take a lot to get stressed. However, when stressed, Artisans usually act out. </li></ul><ul><li>Idealists usually complain that they have muscle or sensory problems when under stress. </li></ul><ul><li>Rationals usually believe that they should act in a certain way until the stressful time has passed, so that no one will know that they are stressed </li></ul>
  24. 24. Other Interesting Things to Note… <ul><li>Your personality type at home can be different than your type at work. </li></ul><ul><li>Your personality type can change over time. </li></ul><ul><li>Your personality type can change to fit a need. </li></ul>
