Adapted vs. Natural Style
Adapted style - How you feel you need to respond in
your current environment to be "successful."

The more your "Adapted" graph is different from your
"Natural" graph, the more predictable and intense your
frustration or difficulty in your current environment
can be.
Identity is given.

Not achieved.
1 Samuel 17:34-58
1 Peter 2:9-11
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of
him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;
once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Dear friends I urge you as aliens and strangers in the world, to
abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.
Why should you care?
The most successful people share a
common trait - self-awareness.
*Personality tests don't put people in boxes.
People put people in boxes.
By understanding yourself and others,
you can be more effective wherever you are.
God gave us our personalities.
How do you approach problems?
How do you interact with others and show emotion?
How do you like the pacing, persistence, and steadiness of your environment?
How do you accept established procedures and rules?
"Let's do it now."
"Trust me! It'll work out!"
Strengths: Accommodating, calm, affirming, loyal, steadfast
"Let's keep things the way they are."
"How was it done in the past?"
Your personality affects all areas of your life.
