I would rank Negativity and "They" higher, but, overall, this is a very goold list of reasons to avoid. Thanks Anne Egros for sharing this in FB and Twitter.

Just remember, this is NOT a test but rather an INDICATION of who you are and how you process information.

The Question of Balance

The Question of Balance | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

Many of us are caught up in habits and rigid ways of doing things. The sculptures are a reminder that balance is found by being in tune with each moment as it arises. Balance requires openness to what is before us. What worked yesterday will not necessarily work today or in the future. What works for one child will not necessarily work for another. The way a task is completed at work is not a guarantee that the same principles can be applied to the next project at hand.

» The Mindfulness of We - The Emotionally Sensitive Person | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

"In mindful communication, focusing on the we rather than the me or the you can lead to deeper connections....

 

When we feel emotionally vulnerable and scared, we are likely to shift our goal from what is good for the relationship to what is good for us. Instead of looking for the truth in the other person’s viewpoint, we may judge the other person. We turn the other person into an object of sorts, and perhaps stop any true connection from happening.

In most interactions, we shut down and lose close relationships and intimacy because of our fear. That fear may be the fear of rejection or not being good enough or of being wrong. Sometimes we can get invested in being right to the point we sacrifice relationships rather than 'give in.'"

Where Is Your Impatience Placed?

Where Is Your Impatience Placed? | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

Where do you focus your impatience? Is it focused on your important things in life? Our life needs the right balance to keep our pace and stride focused.

 

Dividing our patience and impatience between unimportant and important life and leadership activities delivers a better view for us to absorb.

 

Routine – There are unimportant activities we need to do. In terms of life direction, they are the functional things we need to do, and we do them with a patient everyday mindset.

 

Release – These are the frustration points that unexpectedly land in our path. We need to take a more mindful approach to resolved them, breathing in and letting the impatience flow from our thoughts and actions. We cannot let them trip us up and get us off track.

 

Pace – For some of our important activities, we get riled up. We need to remember to put one foot in front of another. It is about movement, not just motion. It is about consistency of work and effort to achieve our goals and purpose. Scurrying around tires us out; consistent action delivers better results.

 

Stride – Life is a balance. We cannot become too patient in achieving our life purpose, as life may just pass us by. For the important things in our life, we need to gain and maintain our stride.

Mindfulness at Work—3 ways to get started

Mindfulness at Work—3 ways to get started | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

"Ready to practice some Mindfulness in your own life?  Here are three ways to get started:

 

1. Consider an important goal, task, or situation you currently have on your priority list.

3. Notice the physical sensation in your body that occurs just by thinking about it.  Does your stomach turn, your jaw clench, your chest tighten, your forehead frown?  Do you break into a smile, have butterflies in your stomach, or feel your pulse race?  Your body notices how you feel before you do!

3. Now notice the emotion attached to the physical feeling.  Is it positive or negative?  That’s judgment.  An emotion is your opinion of the physical sensation you are experiencing.  What if you were to let go of it and simply notice?  This would present you with a myriad of more choices than the one that so automatically came to your awareness...."
