Find out what makes you different. Explore your similarities with others. This Creative Assessment process is designed to offer a larger picture to verify the value you bring to relationships, community and Authentic Life Expression. This Mini Assessment indicates your interest in being self reflective, so you can more consciously engage all types of partners.
In a Higher Alignment Mini-Assessment there are 7 factors we discuss: Pacing, Communications Process, Decision-Making Approach, Defenses and the three levels (Primary, Secondary and Mental Body) and seven creative archetypes or types of intelligence (Orchestrators, Compassionates, Implementers, Inventors, Investigators, Visionaries, and Storytellers) on each level. This Assessment is our view and is intended as a suggestion for you to consider and validate (if it meets your Self understanding). We provide these Assessments to stimulate discussion and to help clients become experts about their own lives.â€‹
Independent Perspectives About Your Style
Creative Assessments are ways we honor our differences. Each Compatibility Factor identifies a range of choices that can help us to see why we are not accepted or understood for who we are. We are not claiming that these assessments are fully accurate. While we do try to be 85% accurate on pictures, and 90-95% accuracy in person, there are challenges as we make these assessments. If we are not sure of ourselves, or are compromised by our parents, it creates distortions in the ability to see ourselves accurately. Any confusion we may experience also limits our ability to accurately see others.
The value of doing a Creative Assessment is it allows us to identify where are aligned to or similar to someone. This can lead to choosing better partners. When someone is similar to us, it does not require much work to explain ourselves. The issue is about loving ourselves as we are, because it allows us to see and engage those who are similar to us. Otherwise, we end up looking for parental patterns, where we are unconsciously attracted to the tension and imbalances these relationships represent. This is why so many of us use Excitement, Intensity and Anxiety to determine which partners will be the most willing to compromise themselves for us.
There is even a value in identifying our differences, as this can lead to discovering better ways to operate together. For example, if we know our partnerâ€™s first level of communication is Think-First, and we are Feel-First, it would be best to engage them with information or Content. We can ask them if they want to talk about a topic, how much time they have, and the bullet points we think should be covered. We can complete this communication by asking when they would like to complete this discussion. This gives a Think-First individual time to prepare and allows us to organize our information so it can be quickly validated by the Feel-First partner as reliable. Since a Think-First person seeks Truth and a Feel-First individual seeks harmony, the Feel-First individual can create more truth by being consistent and declarative in their harmony.
This is just one small part of the differences we see between individuals around how they communicate. Understanding the full range of communication options empowers us to recognize what is needed in different situations with various individuals. In our Mini Creative Assessment process, we discuss the seven differences in Communication style, Decision-Making differences, Defense Styles, Pacing differences and the three levels of creative archetypes. We not only combine these assessments individually, but discuss the differences in the group so people can see how each factor honors their natural way of Being.
Only 16 people will be able to participate in this Creative Assessment process. It is on a first come, first served basis. We will operate in a safe group space and go though the assessments one level at a time. We will provide assessment booklets and presentation materials.
