Your personality is unique!
Quick reminder of what is Process Communication Model.

Everyone has a dominant Personality Type, the type that is seen most strongly in us, and this remains our Base for life. However, in PCM we also identify a Phase Personality Type that the individual is currently experiencing. Our Phase Type determines our primary source of psychological motivation and reveals our most probable reactions when we are experiencing distress.

PCM differentiates among six Personality Types, which we all have within us: Promoter, Rebel, Harmonizer, Thinker, Imaginer, Perseverant. Each type has its own strengths and preferences, and every person has characteristics of all six in them to a greater or lesser degree. Together they form a person’s condominium.

Our foundation or Base is set either at birth or very early in our life. Once this Base Personality Type is set, it will remain unchanged for our lifetime. Hence, whatever our basic Personality Type is, we will always be strongest in the characteristics and behaviors of that Type. Additionally, we have characteristics of all of the other five Types.

The current Phase of an individual will determine what motivates him or her both personally and professionally. Some people experience what is called a Phase Change in their lives. This Phase shift often explains the major personality change we sometimes notice in others and ourselves. This is not necessarily a growth model. The goal is not to have as many Phases as possible, but rather to learn how to satisfy the Psychological Needs positively of our current Phase in order to have a balanced, happy, successful, distress-free quality life.

Remember: we are not a Personality Type.

A different combination of the six types takes center stage in every one of us. With Process Communication Model, we do not speak about types of people but rather personality types in people.
Each Type has specific motivators characterized by differences in Character Strengths, Psychological Needs, Perceptions and Favored Communication Channels. Recognizing these differences is crucial in connecting, motivating and resolving conflict.

Use PCM to identify and leverage our differences. And make a difference for yourself, and others. Big and small. Every day.
