Do you ever feel like you don’t understand why people behave the way they do? Or that you’re not sure how best to communicate with your colleagues or team members? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with these challenges. But there is a tool that can help you improve your understanding of yourself and others: Insights Discovery profiles.
Insights Discovery is a psychometric tool that uses the four colour energies of behaviour to help people understand their own preferences and the preferences of others.
The four colours and the typical behaviours associated with them are:
- Red: Assertive, outgoing, and results-orientated
- Blue: Analytical, organized, and detail-orientated
- Green: Cooperative, people and relationship orientated
- Yellow: Enthusiastic, creative, and visionary
How do Insights Discovery profiles work?
Firstly, a questionnaire is completed online in under 20 minutes, asking you to rank various statements on a scale of ‘most like me’ to ‘least like me’. This forms the basis of the profile.
Insights profile results are based on the work of Carl Jung, who believed that people’s behaviour is influenced by four personality types: extroverts, introverts, thinking and feeling.
The four behaviour types are assigned a colour, which provides a way of visualizing the four personality types. Each colour represents a different set of preferences, strengths, and challenges.
The benefits of using Insights Discovery profiles
There are many benefits to using Insights Discovery profiles. Here are a few of the most important:
- Increased self-awareness: they can help you understand your own preferences, strengths, and challenges. This can lead to greater self-confidence and a more fulfilling life
- Improved communication: they can help you understand how to communicate more effectively with others. This can lead to stronger relationships and better teamwork
- Enhanced decision-making: they can help you make better decisions by providing you with insights into your own thinking style and the thinking styles of others
- Increased motivation: they can help you identify your personal motivators and develop a plan to achieve your goals
How do you get your Insights Discovery profile?
There are a few different ways to get your Insights Discovery profile. You can take the online assessment yourself, or you can work with a certified Insights Discovery practitioner.
If you take the online assessment yourself, you will receive a report that describes your four color energies of behaviour. The report will also include information about your strengths, weaknesses, and preferred communication style.
However, if you work with a certified Insights Discovery practitioner, such as Crisp Professional Development, you will have a more in-depth experience. The practitioner will help you interpret the results in your profile and develop a plan to use the insights to improve your life.
