Wear Your Personality on Your Sleeve (or Which Ninja Turtle Should You be for Halloween?)
Our Personality Style comes through every day, whether we are conscious of it or not. Awareness allows us to take control of – and improve – our interpersonal relationships. Developing an understanding of our Personality Style can be the first step in improvement. This Halloween, you can start by choosing to celebrate your style. Obviously, you were planning on being a Ninja Turtle. I didn’t even have to ask. But which one should you be?
Raphael embodies the Direct style. Never hesitating to take action, he’s always ready when the team encounters conflict and isn’t reluctant to dive in feet first.
Michaelangelo’s big personality always keeps the team engaged and communicating – on a personal level, and when it’s time to get down to business.
Donatello is a total Systematic. As the team’s technical expert, he’s always thinking of new ways to improve strategy and resources to get things done more efficiently.
Leonardo pulls the team together with his Considerate style – reminding them of their purpose and the teachings of their leader, and keeping everyone working together, harmoniously, toward common goals.
One reason the Turtles are such a successful team is their variety of styles. Each style has a different way of contributing to the group dynamic and taking on leadership.
