One of the most popular components of the PBD System is that of the personality profiling.
You are not just one personality type, you are made up of all four and can move dependent on what the situation calls for.
The tool is used to guide people’s behaviour in any given moment and empower people to behave in a way that is best for the team and to achieve your desired outcome.
E.g. If a yellow expressive peacock has an expense report to do (requires process, order, analytical behaviours), they need to step into the blue analytical energy to perform that job.
The profiling exercise is designed to fulfill 3 needs (and they are in order):
The 4 personality profiles

Their kryptonite is inaccuracy and lack of process
2. Green amiable dove: The introverted feeler.
