Each ofrepparttar four primary temperament styles exhibits a body language preference and has distinctive physical characteristics that are neither gender, race nor age specific. By combining physical features and body language gestures, I have developed a system that allows me to identify a personís primary temperament style through observation alone. This significant breakthrough allows temperament understanding to become a practical tool that doesnít require a written evaluation and therefore can be used with everyone you meet. With a little training and effort your ability to visually recognize temperaments can become second nature and woven into all of your interactions. My system allows you to take this information out into your life and put it to practical use in your day-to-day encounters; inrepparttar 126347 boardroom, atrepparttar 126348 sales table, inrepparttar 126349 classroom, etc.

Living With Depression

Written by John Boe


Continued from page 1

We each have a personal responsibility for taking control over our thoughts. Thoughts are highly creative and they lead to action. Our thoughts create our emotions and our emotions determine our mental state. Perhapsrepparttar most practical suggestion I can give people withrepparttar 126346 Melancholy temperament style for dealing with depression is to guard againstrepparttar 126347 tendency to engage in destructive, negative self-talk. If you consistently obsess on thoughts of self-criticism, you are automatically setting yourself up for depression. Because of your Melancholy nature you need to keep your drive for perfection in balance. Remember to keep your standards and expectations of yourself and others realistic. Set short-term goals and review them frequently. I have never met anyone that was depressed who was actively goal setting. In my opinion, depression is not a mental illness or disease as some might argue, but rather a choice of mental state. No person, condition or circumstance can make you feel depressed without your permission. President Abraham Lincoln was certainly no stranger to depression. Abe came torepparttar 126348 conclusion that man is about as happy as he makes his mind up to be!
