Lesson 4: Personality Types Part 2

Objectives:

  • Students will be able to reflect upon their own character and identify ways they could improve it daily.
  • To identify your dominant personality traits.
  • To recognize the strengths and weaknesses of others as well as of yourself.
  • To recognize and understand how personalities mix.

CharacterDare: 

  • Ask students to turn and talk with their neighbor and discuss the previous dare(s) by answering the Truth or Dare prompt. Truth - What do you think about this weeks dares? or Dare - Reflect on your experience with this week's dares. 
    • Using either random cold calling or asking for volunteers, ask students to share their truth or dare reflections. Encourage when appropriate and take advantage of any teachable moments, especially when a student shares a struggle.
    • Remind students that it is not about being perfect, or even doing all of the dares, but rather about striving to improve character by intentionally practicing these dares.
  • Introduce the next daily CharacterDare.
  • Answer and clarify any questions about the dare as well as tweak any of the dares to fit the students’ lives if one does not seem to specifically fit your school situation. All dares can easily be morphed into something that connects to the students’ lives.

Directions:

  1. Say, “Today we will continue to discover our personality types and why they are important.”
  2. Have students take out their piece of paper with their Circle of Life Survey on it and if any student needs more time give them a few minutes to do so before moving the entire class forward.
  3. Show Circle of Life Survey document - Have students read over the columns of words as you have it up on the screen.
  4. Give numerical value to the words which describe you (4 = most like you…1 = least like you).
  5. Use 4…3…2…1…only once as you go across a row.
  6. Have students refer to the definition page for words they do not know by asking you if they do not know what a word means and you can read it to them.
  7. When completed, have students add up each vertical column and then circle the number total at the bottom of each column.
  8. Have students determine by looking at their column totals which color(s) they are.
  9. Have students find their color(s) on the pie chart.
    1. Make 4 corners in the classroom to associate with the 4 different personality colors.
    2. Ask students to walk to the corner of their most dominant personality color.
    3. Read a few gifts for each of the personality colors out loud.
    4. Note to the group again that one is not more important than another and that the phrase, “Opposites attract is in reference to personality types and relates to both people being in relationships as well as people being friends, working together on a team or project, etc. Opposite personality types can really help each other out by complementing each other’s weaknesses.”
