Welcome to the exciting world of Worley's Identity Discovery Profile (WIDP) Software Program and the book "INSIDE INSIGHT" all about WIDP.
This WIDP temperament report provides a comprehensive identification of the individual's needs, desires, and interpersonal behaviors in three fundamental areas of life. First, unlike personality tests that merely describe social "masks" and behaviors, WIDP additionally identifies inner needs, "The Real Person Behind the Mask." This is where WIDP provides insight that other behavioral and personality profiles do not offer. Second, WIDP reveals the individual's demonstrated behavior toward others (objective behavior), and, third; their desired behavior from others toward them (subjective behavior) is identified. This is revolutionary in the development of an individuals' psychological framework of temperament, character, personality, and behavior.
WIDP consists of detailed assessments in the following life areas:
Social Profile....................social interaction/career needs
Leadership Profile................leadership/achievement/recognition needs
Relationship Profile..............emotional/personal relationship needs
WIDP gives you a picture of the total person's needs, desires, probable behaviors, and potential conflicts. WIDP will increase the individual's self-understanding, maximizing the potential for a fulfilled and balanced life. By developing their unique strengths and minimizing weaknesses, they can enjoy tremendous success in interpersonal relationships at work, at home, and socially.
The following detailed temperament assessments also indicate the individual's need to function as an introvert or an extrovert in the three living areas. Not only is this information valuable for positive interpersonal relationships, but it also is an integral part of successful career placement, conflict resolution, team building, leadership development, new employee placement, and sales development.
WIDP enables you to quickly assess the individual's strengths and weaknesses, target potential conflicts, and develop sound strategies for growth in employment or personal relationships.
The Adult Social Profile identifies general social orientation. In addition, this profile outlines the individual's needs and desires for friendships, work/career associations, and other casual relationships. By comparing the Social Profile with the individual's current life situation, you can target conflict areas and help the individual achieve a comfortable level of interpersonal contact in the work or social environment.
The Social Profile should be applied only to the individual's casual social/career contacts. To determine the individual's needs and desires in close personal relationships, please consult the Relationship Profile.
