Personality Types – The Four Elements
Get in touch!
During this exercise the team will learn about the personality types using the four elements: earth, wind, water and fire.
You divide the room into 4 equal areas and name the areas after the element:. earth, wind, water and fire. Each person will stand into the area of which the element represents him the most when he is in a certain situation. Let each person tell why he made this choise. This way the team learns that a different part of them is activated according to the social environment they are in. And the team now knows which element people represent in the team and which elements they want to have more in the team.
During the Personality Types exercise you can apply variations:
- Next to social situations you can ask them in which element they are when they are in different states of being. For example, which element represents you when you are drunk? Or when you are alone?
- Next to social situations you can ask them in which element they are when they are in different emotions. For example, which element represents you when you are happy? And when you are sad? Note that each element can represent each emotion.
- Let the team act out situations of social settings in duos. Each time in a different element. For example: approaching someone at a network event.First each duo acts out the scene in their own element of how they would usually do it. Then in the element they need a bit more. This way they will practise behaviour in different elements.
