  • What is the purpose of this test?

    This test is framed in the social-emotional factors, specifically in the analysis of personality traits that specifically influence the learning process.

  • Analyzed indicators

    Tendency to be aggressive

    ↔️ Low or High tendency to aggression

    📌 General personal tendencies

     

    The level of aggressiveness is the result of a combination of different personal tendencies: high levels of fast paced living, proactivity and dominance. Well-directed aggressiveness is a useful factor and translates into natural combativeness, which is important for facing life's difficulties and overcoming obstacles in achieving a healthy goal. The healthy competitiveness that appears as a sense of overcoming and seeking of personal improvement, sporting or professional horizons is a branch of aggressiveness. The ability to overcome temporary failures and assume one's own weaknesses without being a victim of them is another form of manifestation of aggressiveness.

    Level of intimidation - victimization

    ↔️ Low or High level of intimidation - victimization

    📌 General personal tendencies

     

    During childhood and adolescence the social structures, that may condition later personal and work relationships, are based. For this reason it is very important to detect the roots of such tendencies in order to foster healthy ties, which is one of the central objectives of education.

     

    In this group of personal tendencies, the level of submission to people or situations is analyzed; it also detects the emotional position before authority figures or before intense, vehement or dominant people. The frequent reactions are: shyness, silence, absorption of the situation, fear or mental confusion to find effective answers.

    Leadership

    ↔️ Low or High leadership tendency

    📌 General personal tendencies

     

    Leadership is a highly valued profile in working and social life. It is possible to detect this tendency from an early age; resulting from a combination of factors that require guidance and attention so that they do not lead to inappropriate manipulation. This profile is the result of a fast pace of life, collective tendency, self-sufficiency, extroversion, proactivity, synthetic vision and dominance. These tuned forces produce that the actions of a person have a resonance in the group, and cause an effect of contagion stimulation and amplification of emotions. If the content of this force is positive, we find a leader to whom others turn in search of the conviction and clarity necessary to face a threat, overcome a challenge or achieve an objective.

    Pace of life

    ↔️ Slow life pace - Fast life pace

    📌 Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The rhythm of life refers to the time invested between the perception of a stimulus and the response we give. In today's culture, speed is overrated and equated with efficiency. However, the slowness of response has much to do with reflection and restraint in gathering the necessary information and processing it with greater awareness of cause and effect. The rhythm of life is normally conditioned by genetics (we are born fast or slow in our reactions) although it is possible to modify the rhythm with systematic work.

    Emotivity

    ↔️ Low or High emotion

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    This factor refers to the internal emotional response to an external stimulus; it has genetic components (personal intensity, temperament, neurological characteristics) that form the starting point for character education.

     

    Many social problems have their origin in uncontrolled and chaotic emotionality. At the other extreme, weak or diminished emotionality generates apathy, lack of motivation, and social distance.

    Intellectual focus

    ↔️ Concrete realistic or abstract idealistic approach

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The personality has in the intellectual approach another predominant factor. What a human being thinks is later translated into an emotion to end up in a conscious or unconscious behavior. The origin of the intellectual focus is genetic and it is later established by academic stimulation, both at home and at school. This factor functions as a filter to perceiving reality; the range of capture goes from a realistic-concrete appreciation where tangible data acquire greater weight and forcefulness in decision-making, to the idealistic-abstract approach that values reflection and a world of ideas more.

    Social trend

    ↔️ Individualistic or Collective trend

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    As in the other factors of personal tendencies, there is no value judgment on the poles of social tendency, but a preference that always requires education and balance to obtain the best results in life. The poles of social tendency are individualistic or collective. This factor has a decisive influence on the effectiveness of learning. There are students who learn better alone than in a group; others, on the other hand, acquire greater skills when interacting with peers. A priori, there is no competitive advantage in any of these poles of social preference.

    Autonomy

    ↔️ Dependence - Self-sufficiency

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The feature of autonomy refers to the ability to learn or work based on one's own individual criteria or rather the tendency to follow social norms and conventions, especially based on a principle of authority. At one pole is self-sufficiency, which is the natural inclination to act on one's own initiative with one's own time and rhythm on the conditions proposed by others. From childhood, one can see the independence with which a person acts and decides often ignoring established orders or procedures. This characteristic generates problems of obedience and the more submission is sought, the greater the insurrection.

    Version

    ↔️ Introversion - Extroversion

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The human personality has impulses to turn over its wealth, as well as an orientation of its psychic energy under the presentation of ideas, emotions or behaviors. We call this orientation the version.

     

    As in the previous factors, the version oscillates between two opposite poles that generate the personal dynamism and manifests itself in its internal sphere or towards the exterior. In this way, we will use the concepts of introversion or extraversion to explain this area of personal tendencies.

    Level of Responsiveness

    ↔️ High - Low proactivity

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The responsiveness factor marks the tendency of the human personality to confront unknown or difficult situations. The conditions or stimuli we face automatically activate an internal emotional environment of security or insecurity; this response, in turn, activates thoughts, feelings and behaviors consistent with the level of confidence experienced.

    Adversity Coefficient

    ↔️ Low or High tolerance to effort and frustration

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    Unlike other factors of personal tendencies that have a neutral connotation, this is a necessary ingredient in people's education. Success in life is largely determined by the adversity coefficient; how a person faces problems and overcomes setbacks. It predicts effectiveness, motivation, creativity, productivity, learning, energy, hope, vitality, persistence and response to change.

    Informative Vision

    ↔️ Analytical or Synthetic vision

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    The preferred way of capturing information has a decisive impact on personal trends because it operates as a filter that emphasizes or discards data. Problem analysis and decision making are the fields where this factor manifests its greatest impact. It also affects the use of time and the consideration of people's characteristics. The poles of the informative vision are the analytical and the synthetic; each one has different and sometimes opposite characteristics.

    Assertiveness

    ↔️ Acceptance or Dominance

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    Assertiveness is the amount of psychic energy that we apply to control situations or people; this characteristic is fundamental to make the difference between hostility and submission, a characteristic that affects, above all, social relations, integration to groups and the intensity to face conflicts. Given that personal differences are constantly at play, it is necessary to know the behavioural springs that condition the possibility of taking control of one's own life without being manipulated or without manipulating others. This characteristic also affects the way a person relates to the environment: peer group influences, mass media, social trends, reactions to leadership.

    Indoor environment

    ↔️ Relaxation or tension

    📌Specific Personal tendencies

     

    One of the factors that strongly affect behaviour and learning is the internal environment: the level of relaxation or tension with which one lives influences the approach to problems or the treatment of other people. The level of attention and learning is modified according to the internal environment; the same physical health is the result of this personal factor that contains genetic, family, cultural and environmental elements.

     

    Certainly, the calibration of the indoor environment is a fundamental learning process that affects the adequate investment of time and energy to solve problems or difficulties.
