What is the Pearman Personality Integrator™ (Pearman™)?
It’s a model that allows a person to understand the full range of personality functioning, as well as the flexibility and agility skills and the way it allows to function effectively. It results of the combination of Carl Jung’s work about psychological types with the contribute of Roger Pearman, showing how someone interacts with the outside and inside world, the way he collects information and makes decisions.
How does it work?
Pearman™ goes back to the roots of personality type theory while incorporating new insights into the way individuals operate in the 21st century. It’s a powerful tool that explores de actual functioning, gains understanding about how behaviour patterns are influencing the way a person works and leverages flexibility.
The model brings several innovations:
More Persoanlity: it analyses behaviors that are natural (what’s more comfortable) and those that are more frequently demonstrated. It also brings more insight as it accesses to flexibility, agility and resilience.
More Flexibility: it integrates personality and psychological flexibility, crucial to professional success, leadership, academic success, relationships and conflict resolution. Pearman FlexIndex measures the way how a personal is able to leverage psychological resources in order to operate at his maximum capacity. More specifically, it looks for the skills on the following areas:
Proactivity: having the agility and resilience needed to solve problems in a proactive way
Composure: to remain calm under pressure
Connectivity: to establish functional connections with other people
Variety-seeking: to seek new and beneficial experiences
Rejuvenation: to cope and recover of stressful events
More Freedom: it provides the freedom of representing personality along a continuum and does not require choosing one personality type over another.
Studies show that the largest derailment factor in an individual’s career path is their ability to be flexible in their role and their changing career environments.(…) The Pearman FlexIndex is going to give a direct line to the kinds of strategies that an individual can learn to employ, in order to enrich one’s flexibility.”
