In assessing and working with personality disorders, it is important to distinguish between the various types of personality that are found within ourselves. Within each of these different types, there are a set of fifteen characteristic personality styles that can be considered “personality types”. While this may sound somewhat limiting, in reality, it provides an excellent framework upon which to differentiate and examine personality disorders. Each of the fifteen personality styles represents a distinct type of behavior, an approach to life, and a unique sense of what is personally valid.
Let’s take, for example, the boar style of personality. The boar is a strong, powerful animal that exhibits little concern for rules or structure. The boar is all about the sheer thrill of the chase and will often disregard or disobey the most simple of rules – such as “don’t jump on the dogs!” The boar is characterized by its willingness to engage in dangerous activities in pursuit of its goals and by its exceptional strength and cunning.
The next animal style we will discuss is the dragon style. The dragon is perhaps the most universal animal spirit and most people will at some point have seen dragons, either in comics, cartoons, or figurines. For the sake of simplicity, we will lump the dragon into one of the personality types described above. A dragon is egotistical, domineering, full of confidence and grandiose. It would be considered a downright badass if one were to encounter a dragon. It will use its powers and skills to either manipulate or hurt its enemies.
Personality Animal Types
Another widely held type of personality is that of the witch. The witch is almost impossible to defeat in a contest due to her advanced and unparalleled skills with magic. This animal spirit comes across as extremely crafty and manipulative. The witch is a master of illusion and manipulation. When faced with someone with the ability to perceive reality and behavior, the witch will use every trick in the book to confuse and distract her opponent into taking advantage of her magical powers.
Another widely held animal spirit is that of the warrior. Warriors are hard to defeat in a contest because they are filled with both confidence and aggression. They are fiercely loyal to their friends and will do anything to ensure their safety. They have a great sense of honor and duty and are often willing to risk life and limb to protect others. These animal personalities are also very protective of those they consider dear to them.
A Much Ado
One of the most universal styles is that of the witch. The witch can also be considered the most neutral animal in this article. She possesses an endless supply of versatility and is usually represented by white. While she may change colors depending on the situation, she generally paints a beautiful picture. Her greatest assets are her skills in magic and illusion, which allow her to become almost anyone she wants to.
While the warrior and witch are the most common animal types, you should always remember that each has its own specialty. Each character has certain strengths and weaknesses, as well as special characteristics. In addition, every animal type can be rendered with different facial traits, hairstyles, clothing, and physical attributes. As you get more involved in playing the game, you will be able to determine which of these characters you like the best.
Keep in mind, too, that your personality will not only affect the way in which the game plays out, but it will also affect the way in which you feel during the game. If you are frustrated or excited, it will show. Likewise, if you are angry or upset, it will show. Playing games with different personality styles will keep you from losing your sense of humor or becoming completely annoyed by the characters you dislike.
