Is my personality more than just a quiz result?

Translating personality concepts from paper to real life.

More than just a quiz result?
While a single inventory can provide a certain snapshot into one’s personality, a more rounded and thorough exploration emerges through Personality Lingo’s 3-Step Identification Method. Each step serves a distinct and crucial purpose, working collectively to provide a comprehensive and nuanced understanding of one’s personality traits. This multifaceted method leads to a more accurate and personalized identification of personality styles, making it an indispensable tool in the journey of self-discovery.

3-Step Personality Identification Method


A look at personality patterns

The Pre-Sort step introduces the different personality styles in very general terms. It allows individuals to start thinking about which traits resonate with them without delving too deep too fast.

Each participant preliminarily rank orders the styles from most like them to least like them. Assure them that these are first impressions and they will be given opportunities to refine their decisions as we move forward with other segments of the workshop.
Options for conducting the Pre-Sort include asking participants to take a personality assessment, rank order style profile handouts, and/or personality cards. Any initial exposure to the styles, where participants read a list of traits correlated with each personality style for the first time, is considered a Pre-Sort.


Styles in context

In this important second stage, we transition to the ‘Storytelling Sort’, a method that effectively brings personality traits to life within familiar, real-life contexts. Here, participants get to explore and understand each personality style through engaging storytelling. As stories unfold, showcasing various trait patterns in relatable scenarios, participants can easily connect with or distinguish themselves from the characters portrayed.

Each story acts as a mirror, reflecting aspects of different personality styles. Participants actively engage by noting down traits from the stories that resonate with them, fostering a deeper connection to their own personality lineup. This interactive phase also involves sharing personal anecdotes, relating their own experiences to the traits and styles discussed. Such exchanges not only deepen personal insights but also broaden perspectives by seeing these traits in others.
One of the oldest forms of teaching is storytelling. From the moment cavemen began scrawling paintings across the walls of their dwellings, humans have been engaged in telling stories. In Biblical times, great Our brains are hard-wired to participate in a story. People tend to remember the stories shared during Personality Lingo workshops (much more than lists of traits) long after the training ends. Some of the most common feedback received from trainers after giving a Personality Lingo presentation is, “I loved the story you told about…”
To make this step even more compelling and relatable, as a trainer, weaving in your own personal narratives, or using references from popular culture like movies or cartoons, can greatly enhance the experience. These familiar elements help in breaking down complex personality concepts into digestible and recognizable patterns, making the learning process both enjoyable and memorable. If you haven’t done so already, start your story journal now! The Personality Lingo Facebook Group: is also an excellent place to pick up some story ideas or share your own.
