Which Type of Person Are You

We are all different and unique in our own ways, yet human behaviour follows many predictable patterns. I’m even testing a hypothesis at the end of this message to see which type of person are you, and if certain patterns present themselves.

These patterns are so prevalent in our lives, that many of them are considered innate aspects of our personality or genetics.

Types of Personalities

For example, our world is filled with optimists, pessimists, introverts, extroverts, action-takers, procrastinators, A-types, B-types, Yogis, Crossfitters, and endless other patterns and preferences within the behavioural landscape.

You probably identified closely with some of the words I listed. You may even feel they are part of your “core being”.

The important thing to consider is none of these patterns of behaviour are set in stone

They just happen to be your unique way of adapting and learning based on the experiences you’ve had throughout your life.

Yes, some people are “wired” differently and may be predisposed to certain thoughts and behaviour patterns. However, life is always a blend of nature and nurture.

Whether you are dealt the “best” or “worst” genetic hand, your daily actions and behaviours make a massive difference in your outcomes, and these actions are directly within your personal control.

This means that you can change by simply exposing yourself to new experiences and challenges each day!

There are many reasons to seek change, but the most common one is that you aren’t getting the results you want in one or more areas of life.

I’ve covered the specific steps of change in another post, so won’t get into them here.

The most important thing to remember is that nothing happens without action

Sometimes our built-in behaviour patterns stand in the way of change, particularly when it comes to seizing the opportunities right in front of us.

This concept was demonstrated perfectly by an event I was at over a decade ago.

The keynote speaker was on stage talking about building the skills of seeing opportunity and taking clear, decisive action.

He pulled a stack of money from his pocket, peeled off a crisp $100 bill, held it out in front of him and casually said, “Who wants $100?”.

Almost every hand in the room went up.

He then said, “No, really, who wants $100 right now?”

The entire room cheered but still sat there.

It was only after another 10 seconds of the speaker holding out the bill that one person in the 4th row looked around, stood up, walked to the stage, and took the money from the speaker’s hand.

The speaker gladly gave him the money and congratulated him for “standing up and taking advantage of the opportunity in front of him.”

You could see the message hit home on every face in the room (including mine)…”Oh S**T. I totally missed that chance”.

Throughout the 3 day event, the host and various other speakers did this a total of 10 times.

Needless to say, after the second time, more people sat near the front of the stage, and there was a veritable stampede to get the money when presented.

My point in telling this story is that we face great opportunities every day

We face great opportunities every they even for things we desperately want, yet most people fail to put their desires into action. However, our ability to improve can happen quickly in the right circumstances.

Whether you sit more on the “action-taker” end of the spectrum or on the “cautious observer” side, the fact is, that opportunities are ripe for picking.

It’s up to you to notice them, and then capitalize on them by taking decisive action. Many times this action will need to happen without all the available information, when you are nervous, fearful, or feel you are at risk of embarrassment.

The person I mentioned who got the $100 from the speaker was probably thinking (like everyone else), “Is he serious?”, but he took action not knowing what the outcome would be.

So, which type of person are you

What is your “hundred dollars”?

Better fitness? Weight loss? To get rid of pain? Greater happiness and confidence?

What opportunities for positive change are staring you in the face?

What action are you going to take to seize those opportunities?

Still unsure?

Remember, you can’t always predict the outcome of your action, but the decision to act is always in your control.
