Your personality and your brain | Scott Schwefel | TEDxBrookings

35242 ratings | 2356219 views
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. We all have a unique personality, but we also show up to others in ways we don’t know. Understanding how our brains become consciously aware of ourselves, and in turn, everyone else teaches how we can connect, adapt and ultimately influence others. It all starts with knowing when we are truly self-aware, and when we aren’t, how to get there quickly and easily. Scott Schwefel built and sold Minnesota’s largest technology training company. To get there he used personality assessments to help his people understand each other and understand clients and customers. His study of personality led to an awareness of brain science and how our brains enable us to communicate with each other. Scott has taught these principles of brain science and communications techniques throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and to over 1300 CEOs globally. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

What you feed your mind with, determines who you are and who you will become. Many of the world's most brilliant men agree on this. Here's some quotes from them regarding this subject. "The mind is everything. What you think you become. We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think." - Buddha "A man is but the product of his thoughts; what he thinks, he becomes." - Ghandi.

Blue and Green. Where's my fam?
I always find systems with so few categories to never fit me right. I went to green but realized I was also kind of yellow and a little red. I haven’t a problem with Myers Briggs but maybe it’s because it’s so diverse in range of personalities. Idk, it’s much easier for me to fit myself into one in 16 groups rather than one in 4. Infp might be an easier category for me to identify with because it’s a lot less vague than green. Idk what I’m saying here tbh. It just crossed my mind that there’s no unconventional colors like pink or tan and no mixtures like purple or orange and it seemed a bit off to me. I’m sorry that this comment is so long and pretty meaningless, I am tired and I am just voicing the ramble in my head please don’t take it too seriously.

I tend to see that people resonate very differently in the color areas, as if they would in the four way political chart (which has by now, become the best meme material ever but anyway). People definitely have a distinct 'tone' to them, which is one of these four, but looking closer, it's like a colour wheel spectrum. I tend to be blue but I have undeniable redness in me, which would make more like a sharp violet, and that can make make me possibly the next most exhausting person to be with for people who have loads of green with just a little bit yellow, or just straight blaring yellow - I tend to make every discussion a little bit too heavy, in-depth and over analyzing, dissecting everything even when it's really not necessary. My husband is definitely blue, bluer than me, but despite being enigmatic, distant to some and hard to reach emotionally, he's way more patient with other people and maybe a better listener than me; he definitely belongs in the dreamy beach enchanting turquoise (whatever it is, it's beautiful and that makes him beautiful) wavelength. I find this interesting (however, I do think this on its own is more about temperament, rather than the full extent of a personality).

I took the true colors test approximately 6 months ago and my results were Blue, then green and orange tied. I took it again earlier this week in my psychology class and I got Green with blue and orange tied. My teacher has told me that your color shouldn’t change and that in most cases there’s one very strong color for each person. I know that this isn’t a fixed thing and you aren’t strictly one color, but from what I’ve seen and heard, not many people get results like mine and I’m curious to know if this is something that happens usually and if there’s a thought process that explains this

Thoriso Molefe (5 months ago)
Lol, I'm the opposite of myself, Yellow and Blue (I'm also a Gemini so makes sense lol) On second thought, I'm also quite green, without the patience. But then again I have a lot of red, without the decisiveness (extremely indecisive), I'm extremely impatient and always need to move very quickly and get things going (I run around the house because walking takes too long), I'm not always good at getting things done but incredibly enthusiastic and get everyone around me incredibly enthusiastic about stuff then I get distracted. I feel like what people describe me as is all four colours in equal measure. I'm confused. I always pick everything anyway (including buying the same item in various colours because I can never decide). Right left brain tests also reveal me to be both in equal measure. I'm also an ambivert. Started out in art and became a mathematician too. I'm that mathematician that everyone thinks is a drama student lol.

I am absolutely yellow, so yellow that you cannot be more. Therefore, I may be a real freak for blues and greens. Only reds and yellows can follow me.
