3 Categories of NEEDS (Ns) : Human, Personality, Damage

2. PERSONALITY (cont)
🤓 In Recovery,
the goal is to identify as many of our personality QUALITIES, which connect to our needs, AND finding healthy ways to provide them, both by our selves and through our relationships with others – one-to-one, in groups or from the larger world.

EXPs
• Artistic types need to express their talents with imagination & self-expression vs the Scientifically oriented who need order & proof
• Introverts need a lot of down time vs Extroverts
• Emotional types need to identify how someone / something feels vs Thinking types who need to ‘logic it out’
• Loud people need a ‘platform’, an audience & many outlets vs quiet ones who need peaceful surroundings….
AND
• Parental types need to care for children vs non-‘nurturers’ who prefer work
• Realistic Idealists – to accomplish something valuable for humanity vs Worker types who only focus on the task at hand
• Physically oriented need to move around a lot vs more the sedentary…..
• Those who love ‘green’ nature vs water environments…..
➡️ LIPS : Personality Tests

🤓 Theories of personality are based on motives, which can be seen in behaviors which are controlled by needs (see Part 1). While some are temporary & changing, others are more deeply seated in our nature.

Henry Murray, (American psychologist, 1893–1988) described psychogenic (inborn) needs as a “potentiality or readiness to respond in a certain way, under certain given circumstances.” They function mostly on the unconscious level, while playing a major role in our personality.
These needs include:
Affection Ns – our desire to love & be loved
Ambition Ns – for achievement & recognition
Information Ns – to gain knowledge & share it with others
Materialistic Ns – for acquisition, construction, order & retention
Power Ns – both for our own independence, & to control others    (Explanations….)

🤓 Study with 2,477 company apprentices in Germany
✦ Apprentices distinguished between need-satisfaction in different contexts (vocational training & work)
✦ Personality traits, mainly predicting life satisfaction
✦ Basic psychological need-satisfaction (BPNS) predicted context-specific outcomes, more than Personality Traits (More…)

🤓 TYPES (by Color….) The Tendencies listed for each type can be considered needs / desires they want fulfilled – although not all may be possible, or only to varying degrees, depending on internal or external circumstances.

ALSO: other ways of identifying Personality Needs is by looking at the characteristics of your particular ENNEAGRAM and MBTI type ….

🤓 From TRYTON Capital Investors – chart shows the 9 types of investor personalities, which identifies each one’s specific NEEDS.
“‘Behavioral Finance’ combines psychology & economics to explain why & how investors act, & analyze how that behavior affects the market.
Based on where someone falls on the axis we can make a number of assumptions about your objectives, your attitude towards risk & then what may or may not be a suitable investment …..” (MORE….)

🤓 4 CUSTOMER Types & how to SELL to each

Can you also identify family, friends & co-workers?
