No, don’t worry. This is one blog NOT talking about your summer body shape. We’re talking geometry.
Or so professional speaker Connie Podesta tells us, as she has been using her personality shapes self-awareness test to help professional groups become better teams for more than 25 years.
Scott, Alison and I recently attended a client event where Podesta was speaking. She asked us to choose between four shapes: a square, a circle, a triangle or a squiggly line. Each shape represented a different set of personality traits, which can help you determine your leadership, learning and interaction styles.
Here are our results…and our reactions!
“I think it’s the afternoon Mountain Dew that provides the energy!” –Scott
“Some of it is true, but I really wanted to be a star. That’s like five triangles…right?”- Stephanie
Pointy, isosceles squiggle
“I’m not just one because I am bad at following other peoples’ rules! Bwahahahaha!”-Alison
You can find out the entire list of traits your shape says about you here. Podesta also provides links and references that someone of your shape would be interested in.
What do you think? Did the shape you select reflect or surprise you? Let us know in the comments below!
