Discovering God's signature on
your soul is fascinating to everyone who is lucky enough to encounter this personal growth
technology. You are now one of the lucky persons who are exposed to this powerful
knowledge. Use it to your best moral advantage in life with everything you do.

There are few things in life more critical than learning how to
communicate effectively with others. Unless you are a hermit or introvert, interacting on
a two-way plain with the rest of the world is vital to each person's happiness. It is
vital to our sense of accomplishment vital to our sense of purpose vital to our mental
stability and it is vital to our over-all well-being. We feel good when we understand
ourselves and when others like or at least accept who we are. The way you and I relate to
others will determine who we are perceived to be, how we are viewed as a person, and what
our "image" becomes. Our dominant personality type is who we "are"
and, most likely, who we will always "be". But people can change their dominant
personality type during their lifetime many of us change from a red to a green to a blue
during the course of an hour. But no matter what characteristic we assume for the interim,
each one of us will ultimately slip back into the patterns of our dominant trait. Most of
us will spend 90% of our waking hours behaving in one particular manner, while a minority
of others will wander from trait to trait changing opinions and moods many times during
each day. But a person is only one color at any given time period. So no matter how much
you change, you will still emit signs that make you predictable. Lack of understanding of
other's personality types as well as a lack of understanding about why we behave the way
we do, can significantly influence what we may (or may not) achieve in life.
You might be a person who demonstrates different characteristics
throughout the various category's of relationships in your life, for example:
You might be a tough leader, determined winner, and cunning
business person who needs to be the center of attention in the work environment.
And then, become a warm, gentle, kind, giving person with your
family at home.
Socially, your buddies might know you as the sports-nut, who
screams at the umpire, enjoys a few beers while playing cards with the boys or isn't
afraid to get on a motorcycle, jet ski or jump out of an airplane. What's the moral of
Remember, you may be a gold at the country club, and green at
work, and blue at home and a red with your college pals but whatever you are, or whatever
your friends may be, it is critical for you to diagnose who they are, at the times they
are, and you will be able to "talk their language" and predict their behavior
before it happens! This is the magic of our lesson herein.
People are also prone to drift through the color spectrum during a
This is just an example of "general tendency's" that
many people go through throughout their lives.
Note: if you understand that there are really 3 sides to a coin,
not two and if you understand the success principal behind the United State's 3 branches
of government you'll better understand how all the different colors mix into creating your
The Angel on your right shoulder the Devil on your left.
To start understanding what this personality-typing stuff is all
about, lets look at a simplistic variation on the color-typing theme. All cultures around
the globe are familiar with the simple children's cartoon version of this principal:
whereby a person has to try to make a decision using the angel/devil formula.
This method usually offered two distinct choices, with the
"decider" playing the role of the 3rd participant. The politically correct
decision was represented by the angel dressed in white on the right shoulder and the
socially incorrect decision was represented by the red devil on the left shoulder. The
angel was always trying to present the "passive" green and blue positions of:
practicality logic, assistance, truth and justice while the red devil would try to present
the gold and red positions representing: risk-taking, mischievous fun, power, control or
taking the lazy way out.
This success formula was created to be used as an educational or
entertainment vehicle. The main character in the cartoon had to choose a behavior pattern
that was either acting like a little angel or behaving like a little demon. The decision
was meant to install social or political behavioral patterns in younger persons growing up
in a world that offers may choices between right and wrong, good and evil, sensible or
undisciplined. We were taught that the consequences of our decisions resulted in us taking
actions that would effect our lives in sometimes monumental or irreversible ways. Although
the Angel/Devil example was intended to install a biased opinion on someone in a social
environment, in real life we make decisions (minute by minute ) all the time privately
behind closed doors outside of public scrutiny. And some of us have a propensity to choose
in certain predictable patterns. If, for example, you met a red/devil type personality
type, you would be able to predict their behavior "before" it happened. This is
what this publication is all about. I will teach you to identify who you really are, why
you do the things you do and why others will consistently talk, behave and act in
predictable manners. This will enable you to "relate" to people, understand
situations, and succeed in all dynamics of your life because of this new insight.
Lets look at another example: most of us certainly know: the
"Spock" character from the "Star Trek" TV series. Wouldn't most of us
agree that we pretty much knew what he was going to do before he did it? Sure we did.
There were few surprises regarding his "green" character. Well, you and I are
just as predictable. You wouldn't invite Spock to go skinny-dipping with you, just like
you wouldn't ask Captain Kirk to volunteer his time to help the homeless serving soup at
an inner-city mission. It's just not in their personality type to do certain things. We
move unconsciously toward things and away from others. And harnessing this knowledge can
mean real power to you in your life. You will have the ability to control your destiny,
not always be manipulated by circumstances and the desires of others who want to make you
do their bidding.
