Myers-Briggs to Fit Our Expectations & Needs – Not Just Understanding Who You Are But What You Need to Succeed

carl-gustav-jung-160393The founder of personality understanding was Carl Jung who first wrote about his findings in 1921. However, his work had one serious limitation. As he was a trained psychologist he mainly had access to people that were perceived to have serious psychosis problems. His work was based on finding a new balance for these people rather than a balance for the everyday person who doesn’t find their way to a psychotherapist.

Isabel Myers took up the challenge in 1942 to help “ordinary, healthy, normal people understand that it is alright to be unique individuals.” She could see the implications in everyday life, careers and relationships with those around you. Her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers, wrote in 1980 - “I hope parents, teachers, students, counsellors, clinicians, clergy - and all others who are concerned with the realization of human potential - may find a rationale for many of the personality differences they encounter in their work or must deal with in their private lives.”

history-of-MBTINowadays, the test is used by a vast array of big corporations to fit you into a box and try to predict how well you will do a particular job. This was not the purpose of the empowerment and awareness test. It was not to determine your path in life or what box you go into. In the same way Alfred Binet created the I.Q. Test to help see how to better accommodate students - not to determine their capabilities for life.

We have gone beyond the simple factors that people have obsessed over who you should be but rather than the factors that help people to be the most balanced form of themselves. Which, ironically, is what Jung was striving for when he first worked with his patients in the 1920‘s. This balanced form of yourself allows you to be successful at everything in record breaking times.

We firstly started off applying our new methods to students with learning difficulties - why are no two dyslexic children able to get the same results? Why does one find the whole school experience so difficult and not the other? Why are so many people of a particular personality type diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome? Why do some people with written expression issues bully others? Why do some students need all the steps explained while others find their own ways?

We now have a more extensive profiling method, Purple Profiling, that takes more factors into account including the ways in which we process information. Another area that Katherine Briggs was keen for people to have an understanding and realization of. We understand the developmental time scale and how generational factors affect long term patterns. We have ended up with a system that is like psychoanalysis and counselling on speed. The results are not only rapid, but more importantly, sustainable. They have been described as ‘flicking a switch.’ We are not changing people. I don’t need anyone to be less dyslexic or more sociable for success.

The methods have now been applied to all areas of life, business and sports as well as education. Across a span of ages, backgrounds, sports and industry sectors.

It has been so important to continue to build on the foundations of this work, especially as we have been continually written off by people in life. My own psychologist report at 16 told me that “it was beyond my status to go to college” because of my severe dyslexia. Interestingly, all of the people who have seriously added to this method, and not in a way to just be used by corporations to fit people into boxes, have themselves all been INFJ. The rarest MBTI personality type. It is as if in being so different from others that they have strove to add to the understanding of that difference in the world around them.

Psychological Assessments to determine Cognitive Development

FEAR1I was 4 when I had my first official Psychological Assessment and it was a traumatic experience. My parents took me to see the movie “Lady and the Tramp” immediately afterwards to help me recover.

This is why when I now do Psychological Assessments of young children I am very focused on a fun enjoyable experience - a trauma free zone if you like.

I was 8 when I had my second Psychological Assessment and 16 when I had my third. I have lived with hereditary Profound Dyslexic Spectrum Disorder since birth and it still impacts of every aspect of my daily life - but I developed ways to cope.

I remember there were pages and pages of how I did not measure up to other children my age. There was never help given to my parents and I to assist me in working the way I needed to work. The only focus was on what I could not do.

Hence, this is why I started to develop my own methods of learning from 4. I was also acutely aware at 4 that I was completely incapable of doing what the School and Government Shrinks wanted me to so.

These days, I set children and families up for success no matter how “behind” the rest of the world perceives a child’s cognitive development and behaviors.

Every family I have dealt with personally, and that is thousands of people at this stage, are set up to succeed in the precise ways that their child is capable of learning and developing.

Personality is a massive factor in development. Some people are more independent that others. They may walk faster, they may be quieter. Some people are born chatterboxes and others do not speak until much later on. Some will not play by themselves others are loners. No one can be put on a scale and expected to fit.

Even children who have hearing impairments and a great big long list of conditions I deal with can develop better and learn faster with the right interventions. It does not matter what it is - no two children can rise to their challenges in the same ways.

1.

How can a professional determine if a 4-year is up to task with cognitive development?

Most professionals rely on standardized test. Personally, I do a session with the child using my “toolbox.” This involves a whole series of games with everything from Playdoh to magnets. This allows me and my Team to test abilities across a whole spectrum without the child even being aware of it. All the testing is completed without the child feeling like they are being examined.

2.

What if the 4-year old cannot do all the cognitive skills for his/her age?

Should a parent worry?

I do not deem tasks age appropriate. I strongly believe development is a little bit more complex and I think it is unfortunate that a lot of learning difficulties are determined on an age scale. This ends up making parents feel very bad about their child’s development. During my initial assessments, yes sure it is always very obvious to me what people cannot do, but it is equally obvious if they have fantastic visual pattern recognition or memory association skills. These can be used to develop the areas that are lacking. Just the same ways I achieved a First Class Honors Degree followed by a Doctorate when told as a teenager that University was “beyond my status.”

I think the system sets up parents to worry. But one of my key tasks in taking on any new case is to put everyone’s mind at ease and make everything doable. Families always walk out the door with a way, structure, plan an if necessary Team support to do everything.

3.

How can a parent help a child develop these skills?

I set up programs for parents to use the everyday in their own home to help their children. I think one of the disadvantages of our technological world is that it is very removed from other people and parents. Yes, I do like to use some Apps but I like to develop skills using less remote games. Child cookery, for example, builds time management skills and the use of a radio in the background helps children filter information.

100 Years of Psychology Redefined by European Scientific Doctor

Psychology-Image100 Years of Psychology Redefined by European Scientific Doctor

(Extracts from Dr. O’Reilly In Conversation with Marie O’Riordan - November 14th 2014).

Opening with “My dream is to make the world a better place which means embracing academia and scientific research,” Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly outlined how she is doing just that.

“In 6 years spent in a vacuum quietly developing psychological success systems, I took the chalice of work by Carl Jung, Isabel Briggs Myers/Katharine Cook Briggs, David Keirsey and Maria Montessori, further developing it into the ground breaking system, Purple Success®, I have categorized people in new ways, not simply based on who they are and their temperaments.  Jung and Myers/Briggs obsessed over who we are.  I, on the other hand, obsess over who people need to be - the best of themselves for the betterment of all mankind - categorizing them based on how quickly they can obtain their desired results and the environment needed to achieve this.

“Surprisingly, Marie O’Riordan and I are only the 4th group to impact specific areas of psychology in a century which makes it very difficult to explain exactly what we do as we have rewritten a hundred years of psychology”, Dr. O’Reilly added.

“My aim when we started was to take literacy and intelligence out of the same sentence.  You see, people can’t believe that, although I couldn’t stand up and read aloud to you, I have attained the academic results I have.  This is why I call myself an Expression Developist™, having discovered a way to express myself so the world finally takes me seriously.  Thankfully, Marie can read and talk for days!”

“I’m often asked how our work differs from that of other pioneers.  Simply put, our methods produce results fast, we concentrate on each client’s individuality rather than them functioning as a cog in a system and we build up each person to work at higher levels than they imagined possible, usually independent of large organizations.”

“Our aim for our clients is ‘superhero’ levels of success, becoming top in their fields at rocket speed.  We are totally inclusive, our clients ranging in age from babies to those in their 70s and we don’t care whether someone’s had several marriages or careers, or never been able to read, write or even talk.  Our methods work with everyone.”

“When asked what I do, I worry my answer might sound portentous but, although I’m not one to dominate conversations, when I answer there’s always a genuine interest in finding out even more about psychology.”

“I have developed unique new profiling methods, applicable not just to personality types but also to differing learning styles, to understand how people process information from the world around them and how they need to think.  These are distinct ways of viewing life events and timelines in order to break negative patterns, not just in their lifetime, but right across generational blueprints, which is another reason why this body of research is unparalleled.”

Dr. O’Reilly continued, “I now fully understand how humans develop as people.  Interestingly, our work over the last 6 years has freed clients from the stifling structure and behaviour patterns of others, enabling them to grow and build on what has happened in their families and environments before them.”

Continuing the conversation, Dr. O’Reilly added, “I was obsessed with taking an individual to success not only by understanding the individual but also the effects of everyone else around them, teaching them how to cope and succeed regardless of internal and external factors.”

“The wonderful fact is that no challenge is too great.  My team and I can now teach completely illiterate children to read and write in just 4 hours.  I have lost count of the number of ‘A’s that have been achieved by students who, just like me, were written-off.  We flicked a switch in their heads enabling sustainable success for all.”

“Marie and I create environments where everyone succeeds, whether they’re teams, companies, students or teachers.  With our help, sports people have won the ultimate ‘gold’ at World Championships in record time, along with many more sporting titles.  Family businesses have gone from bust to making millions of dollars within days.  It doesn’t matter what the goal is, it can be achieved fastest using our psychological methods.”

“We have worked with thousands of people both within our custom-built facilities and all around the world.  We don’t see dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, audio processing disorders and so on as barriers because, with us, everyone works in their own individual optimum way.  This simply does not happen in regular systems and this is the reason why our results are truly outstanding.  We’ve proved our theories by discovering the keys and methods needed for individual success.”

Dr. O’Reilly concluded by saying, “I see endless possibilities for the world with these methods.”

Introduction

Welcome to the Purple Learning Project.

The aim of the Purple Learning Project Foundation is to create a legacy of the methods which Dr Naoisé O’Reilly has developed since 2009.

The methods in learning and personality theory have been developed while working with people of a variety of ages, backgrounds, and cultures. The methods have been applied to the education, business and sporting environments. The ages are in the spectrum of 4 to 70's. The methods include: Purple Profiling, Purple Processing Scales, The Periodic Table of the Development of Results, Forget Phonics Reading Method, Purple Pre-School Success and so on...

There has always been a clear distinction for Dr Naosié in working with people who currently need help within the system and leaving behind something of integrity for the future generations.
