Brief Overview of Session Two

According to Hippocrates and others, even today, there are four basic personality types. Before you say what about this or that other profile out there, let’s just stick with this concept. It works well and is valid and has withstood the test of time.

Below you will see a brief synopsis of the four types-Popular Sanguine, Powerful Choleric, Perfect Melancholy and Peaceful Phlegmatic. This is not an extensive and thorough explanation. However, it will be enough to get you started. If you’ve done a personality profile before it will be familiar to you.

Complete a Profile

You are going to learn about your personality before we determine your child’s inborn nature. You will complete a profile. It is important that you realize this is not a test. There are no correct or incorrect answers.You will identify your strengths as well as your struggles or weaknesses. We all have both. You will also learn that we all have a primary and a secondary personality.

This is the link to the personality profile I’d prefer you complete – CLICK HERE Please use a pencil and have an eraser handy. In order for this to be valid you must be as honest as you possibly can. This is for your private use. I believe you will find it highly valuable in all your relationships.

I am available to answer any questions at gail@gailshowalter.com

I will go over the results with you during the next session. You will begin to learn how you and your child may see the world around you in very different ways.
