Defining Personality Styles

The concept of style dates back to Jung's work in 1914. Each person has their own style that serves as the foundation for their behavioral choices. Based on research, we've defined the four styles as Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic. Understanding your own personality style and the personality styles of others allows individuals and teams to work together more seamlessly because each person knows how to capitalize on their strengths and how to adapt their style when needed. StylePlay is a personality type game that adds excitement and depth to your training program and determine the personality styles of your participants and others.

 StylePlay is a collection of 12 quick and energizing group personality card games that reinforce learning and build awareness in a fun, non-threatening manner.

StylePlay is based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Each of the personality type games allows participants to identify preferred styles – either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.

How It Works

Every StylePlay card displays an adjective describing a characteristic that people usually demonstrate in daily interactions. Participants can take part in 12 different card games – or the facilitator can create a new game with the StylePlay cards. Each of the games allows participants to identify preferred styles – either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.

StylePlay can be used alone, in combination with any Style Suite title, and with other training products. The Facilitator Guide features a brief overview of the Style Theory that is the basis of the games and the other Style Suite instruments. In addition, debriefing questions and key learning points are provided to help facilitators draw significance and to help participants gain deeper insights.
