From the publishers:
"How Can They Possibly Think Like That???" is the simplest, most fundamentally sound approach to personality profiling ever created. Praised by business owners, psychologists and human resource directors as brilliant and practical, this resource guide will serve any group who wants to increase their effectiveness as individuals and as a team.
The index is easier to take than any other is on the market. It can be self administered and evaluated within ten minutes, allowing this profiling system to be used in short focus business situations: new employee interviews, conflict resolution, departmental restructuring, employee evaluation for promotion. Other profiles require hours to take, weeks to have evaluated and years to develop a comprehension of the results. Spend an afternoon with this guide, and you will come away with knowledge you can effectively use the rest of your life.
Even the more complex and comprehensive assessments don't come close to matching the personality knowledge gained from the practical applications of the CVI system. Individuals will quickly discover and relate to their Spiritual Cornerstones (Core Values). They will be able to understand to what extent these cornerstone values dictate how we think and act and how different we are form others with different cornerstone values.
The Primary Social Values help individuals readily see themselves in practical settings, identifying their strengths and weaknesses. Each person is better able to understand how his or her personality strategy works, as well as the how's and why's behind negative behaviors.
The Way We Act illustrates the idiosyncrasies of each personality profile and the mechanisms which occasionally make each of us ineffective, especially in the business world.
Finally, The Basis for Success section clearly illustrates the different strategies each personality style uses in order to achieve personal success. It is easy to see where conflicts arise between persons with strong foundations in one personality style or another. Beginning with our Spiritual cornerstones and ending with our strategies for success, the committed reader will discover a wealth of new understanding for personal growth, development of better relationships and greater personal power with people.
