More about Personality Types

Posted on June 23, 2011 at 8:27 AM Comments comments (0)
The four personality types described by Gerda Boyesen are Rock, Warrior, Sunshine and Princess on the Pea (from the Hans Christian Anderson tale).  Personality types don't define who you are, but they describe how you typically respond to stressful situations.  See if you recognise your own coping patterns here somewhere.
 
Rock is solid, dependable, always there, immoveable, hard, cold, unresponsive, unfeeling.
 
Warrior is aggressive, always up for a challenge, quick to take sides, has a keen sense of injustice, doesn't know when to stop fighting, can't afford to indulge in tender feelings.
 
Sunshine is warm, pleasant, polite, unruffled, always says "I'm fine", can't acknowledge negative feelings and prefers to ignore unpleasant situations.
 
Princess (or Prince) on the Pea is impressionable, sensitive, discriminating, vulnerable, easily disturbed, aware of subtleties often missed by others.
 
If you regularly adopt just one of these ways of coping, you become less than a whole person - unable to participate in the full range of life's experiences.
 
Biodynamic Therapy offers support as you begin to explore the no-go areas in your life... ...because life is worth living well.

Personality Types

Gerda Boyesen was a Norwegian psychologist and physiotherapist who developed Biodynamic Therapy as a way of dealing with stresses which affect both the mind and the body.  She identified 4 personality types as a way of understanding how our habitual responses to stress can lead us to emphasise certain aspects of our experience and ignore others, which leaves us missing out on some of what life has to offer.
 
I'll be writing about these types, which all have positive and negative qualities, so you can get an idea of your typical coping pattern.  If you think your life is too far out of balance, please contact me to find out how Biodynamic Therapy could help you...because life is worth living well.
 
 

Live well every day

Life is worth living well every day, because you never know which day may be your last.  Just this week I know of one life which came to a sudden end, and one which nearly did.  Live well every day - and if you are finding that difficult, perhaps Biodynamic Therapy can help you?
