Personality Dimensions®




Get to Know more Personality Dimensions®

Personality Dimensions® is about understanding yourself and others so you can be more effective in your relationships, your work … your life.

Everyone is different … we come in all varieties and understanding our own values, strengths, joys and stressors and those of everyone we interact with provides a great foundation for communication. Knowing some of the ways people are different assures us that we are okay in our own uniqueness and that we aren’t alone in some of our idiosyncrasies.

Personality Dimensions ® takes complex theories and makes them accessible with plain language, and practical uses. It is an assessment that uses a card sort with pictures, short paragraphs, and a multiple-choice survey, to appeal to different learning styles.

Personality Dimensions® doesn’t just use colours, it also includes symbols and descriptive names to help better remember not only what the four different Dimensions are, but what they mean.

It is important to remember that people are not all one personality/colour; one may be our strongest, but we have elements of the other three. This may change as people get older or as different things happen in life, but our core personality stays the same.

It’s not enough to know just what your personality preference is, but you also need to know where you get your energy from, also known as Introversion & Extraversion. Introverted doesn’t mean “shy” and Extraverted doesn’t mean “outgoing.” It’s all about how people get their energy. Introverts get their energy by having quiet time. Extraverts get their energy from keeping in touch with the people, places and things around them.

Introverts often prefer to do their thinking and planning by themselves. Extraverts enjoy talking and being part of a group. There are, however, outgoing Introverts and shy Extraverts. Some Introverts enjoy being with a group of people, but they may need a quiet time after. Some Extraverts can be quiet and a bit shy at first, but they will become more involved once they are comfortable.

Personality Dimensions® gives you valuable insights into your values, needs, and wants; everything that makes up your personality. Based on widely embraced theories in psychology, and backed by decades of research, Personality Dimensions® is has become a favourite personality assessment in Canada and around the world.

Personality Dimensions® has been experienced by millions of people around the world. As foundation of self awareness, it sets the stage for personal and professional development. Using colours, symbols, and descriptors, it provides a common language for understanding and appreciating differences.

Through a process of self-discovery, Personality Dimensions® will help you learn more about yourself, discover how to communicate better with your family, friends, and colleagues, and make more informed choices in all areas of your life, and realize your full potential.
