Personality Traits of Children
Psychologist had laid down various theories, however we find Raymond B. Cattell's '16 personality traits concept' apt for our assessments.
These 16 personality traits are discussed here in detail and is used as a vital component in our reports.
Every personality trait or behavior factor is different and closely related to each other. Each one of has all 16 traits but with different permutation and combinations, and the variation of these factors decide our behaviour. These 16 traits can be observed in toddlers and onwards.
For infants we find a different set of personality traits more relevant. These are Activity, Adaptability, Initial Reaction, Intensity, Regularity Sensitivity. Read more about personality traits
Common behavior problems are found in all children like tantrums, laziness, shyness, attention seeking, craving for fast food, restlessness, mood swings, avoiding studies, bit of aggressiveness, etc. These behavior problems usually disappears with age with little persuasion and guidance by parents or teachers. In-fact without these common sweet problems a child is incomplete. Children are naughty, defiant and impulsive at some point of time, which is perfectly normal. Few children are on extreme side and are way out of their respective age for these common behavior issues.
We do not offer any online or offline help for clinical cases, however it is a good idea to have our personality assessment session to clear our suspicion if any. I am sure with this personality assessment session your anxiety will come to rest. Read more about behavior problems
Some people are born to rule, few to serve, few to enjoy and few souls remains unsatisfied, depending upon their personality. Every child has its own personality, and nothing can be done about it. A child is born with a set of attitudes and traits essential to survive and thrive. Some of these traits are inherited from parents through genes and rest are developed by observations with time.
Role of personality play in child's development? I have personally studied personality of successful people around me and famous personalties from history. The difference between them and common man is their personality constituent. Successful people are low on apprehension, high on social boldness, very open to change and high on liveliness.
