Basic Personality Certification Overview

Basic Personality Certification Overview

Become a certified trainer of the Ritberger Personality Method™ and learn how to administer and interpret the Personality Color Indicator (PCI)™ and facilitate the What Color Is Your Personality™ workshop, all in the comfort of your office or home by enrolling in our comprehensive online certification program. This program offers insight into the functioning of personality, and provides an in-depth understanding of how and why personality consistently and predictably influences human behavior.

The Ritberger Personality Method™

This is a dynamic personality typology system based on the research and work of Dr. Carol Ritberger. In her system, personality is identified by four personality colors; Red, Orange, Yellow and Green. She chose to use color as a means of differentiating personality types because it’s a non-threatening way to understand why we do the things we do, and to understand the differences in other personality types. Dr. Ritberger’s work reveals that each personality color has its own mental preferences, or neurological hard-wiring that the brain uses to gather information, process information, and make decisions. All of which are at the very core of the mental functioning that effects behavior. The real value of the Ritberger Personality Method™ is that it takes a complex topic, personality behavior, and turns it into an understandable and useful tool so we can better understand ourselves and understand the people in our lives.

The PCI Indicator

The creation of the Personality Color Indicator (PCI)™ by Dr. Ritberger began with her interest in the research and work of both Carl Jung and Max Lüscher. Once developed, the Personality Color Indicator (PCI)™ was administered to hundreds of people to test its user ease and comprehension, and its value and validity. Then a comparative analysis was done against five different personality tests and models, and a statistical analysis was conducted by an independent organization. The result is the Personality Color Indicator (PCI)™. A practical, usable, and reliable personality assessment, which not only serves an effective self-development tool, it also serves as a valuable business, social, and organizational tool.

The What Color Is Your Personality™ Workshop

This is our flagship workshop as it’s the initial introduction into the world of personality, and lays the groundwork for learning how to live with, work with, and avoid conflict with each of the four different personality colors. The purpose of the workshop is to create a positive learning environment where the attendees can explore, discover and celebrate their uniqueness, while at the same time, learning about the other personality colors and understand their contributions and uniqueness. The focus of the workshop is to enhance self-esteem, support and cultivate diversity, build team-esteem, develop the inner-leader, and minimize the potential for conflict and power struggles. The goal of the workshop is to teach attendees how to create and sustain mutually satisfying and mutually beneficial relationships. The workshop is designed to be educational, engaging, experiential, and entertaining.

The What Color is Your Personality™ workshop is presented as half-day or a full-day workshop. It can also be added to existing training programs, and customized to meet client-specific needs. We’ve found that the information shared in this workshop has a variety of practical applications and can be used in a multitude of settings.
