Connect2 Personality Mapping for Couples & Individuals
Myers-Briggs tells you what your personality style is -- Connect2 Personality Mapping shows you how you got here, and highlights where you want to go and what might be slowing you down. The goal is to develop more tools to live a successful, authentic life, and change your brain along the way.
Connect2 Personality MappingTM is a powerful guided process designed to explore the layers of the physical and psycho-emotional Self. It is a way of illuminating an individualís intra- and inter-personal relationships, which may include oneís own-- and often previous generationsí--unfinished business. Couples will first look at their own Maps and then look at how their maps interact and intersect. This helps couples see the interplays in their relationship, and how it comes out in daily life together.

Connect 2 Personality MappingTM During childhood we create maps for ourselves that frame our realities and shape our behaviors, often for the rest of our lives. These early maps are grounded in our genetic predispositions and shaped through our earliest childhood experiences, including interactions with parents, grandparents, siblings, and other significant people in our lives. They carry important information on what is acceptable and what must be hidden in our lives. 1
As we grow into adulthood, these personality maps are carried into our personal and work lives, affecting how we express ourselves, interpret our emotions, and interact with others. If they are distorted by a difficult upbringing, they can become roadmaps for unhappy relationships and skewed views of reality.
But we now know that the brain retains neural plasticity throughout life (Cozolino, 2002), and we can learn to respond differently once we understand our own circumstances. The purpose of Personality Mapping, then, is to examine the maps that direct our feelings, to explore how they affect our behaviors and relationships, and ultimately, to integrate these maps into our adult awareness so that we are able to make better choices. Simply put, the end-goal is to alter the maps, transform the brain, and reframe our feelings and responses so that they become rich, appropriate and authentic.
1Kurtz (1990) calls them maps. Fisher (1992) refers to them as character strategies. Jung used the term personality types.
