It is a long standing belief that major personality makeovers are not possible according to most psychologists. We unconsciously follow the script written in our genes since birth. The basic construction of our unique personality is set by our DNA, but we can utilize the cards we are dealt to improve on many aspects of our character traits.
Even though we cannot change the blueprint of our personality, many of the character traits of a personality can be enhanced and tempered. The basic nature of our personalities cannot be altered, however you can develop some sought after qualities that will improve who you are and how you interact with others and provide richness and fulfillment to your life.
First you must start with identifying your personality type determined by your facial and body composition. It’s not hard. Take a look at the types and see which one you identify with personalitypredictors.com/7-personality-types.
Once you have identified your personality type, make an honest assessment of your character traits to determine how they have affected your relationships. Then you can begin your personality “makeover”. It is up to you to decide what your goals are and what areas of your personality you want to improve by taking a look at who you are, what your strength and weakness’ are, how you project to others and mostly what you can realistically do to reinvent image and the pattern of your behavior within the framework of your nature.
Each and everyone of the 7 personality types strive to be successful in life, joyful, and liked by others. There are some common ways they can accomplish this, most are obvious. These are the improvements everyone type can strive for which will be more difficult for some of the 7 personalities than others: Optimism and a positive outlook on life, socialize more and purse new friendships, engaging and contributing to conversations by expanding your interest in a broader range of topics,develop more tolerance and empathy to others supporting them in their goals, overlooking slights and not holding grudges (you know, the tried and true adages about “life is too short” and “do not burn bridges”). Remind yourself that you should be accepting of others faults and tolerate and embrace their differences. A wide circle of friends with a variety of viewpoints provides the spice in our lives. Never lose your sense of humor along the way. The bonus is that you can also look at others and know in advance what type of person you are interacting with, so it makes it easier to deal with others by learning how to identify their personalities.
Remember, we are all unique, no matter what your personality type there is a sliding scale of traits that are either dominant or recessive in each type that contribute to the blueprint and construction of a personality. It depends on where you are on the scale.

A Summary of Each Type’s Face and Body Characteristics
The 7 personality types are determined by observing the physical characteristics of the combined Face and Body features that are used to identify the enduring character and temperament of an individual. These 7 personality types evolved over the centuries through the practice of Physiognomy which is the art of judging human character from facial features and body types. It is not hard to recognize the differences once you learn the guidelines. They will become obvious to you.
You must first learn to read and recognize the different facial features and body type combined of a person to determine which of the 7 personality types they match. Then you will be able to further refine your analysis of the person by observing individual facial characteristics that refine each type. It helps if you study the photo examples on the website. Additionally, learning the basics of Palmistry to further refine each type by the shape of the hand and the type of fingers is an area to explore once you decide which personality type is the best fit. They are clues as to where a person falls within the personality type as it is a sliding scale of character traits that need to be refined.
For best results in deciding what personality type an individual is:
FIRST: If someone is sitting or standing across from you, trust your observation based on the website personality types you reviewed and the 7 Personality Type photos and make a quick assessment of their overall body type, the rest will follow. If you aren’t certain, you can eliminate the personality types you are certain they do not match.
THEN: Look again more carefully. Look at the body shape first: Are they tall and thin, short and stout, wirey and small boned….this will quickly give you a clue to the matching personality. It is of primary importance as each personality has its own distinctive body shape.
Look at the whole face . It relates to the body type. Determine the shape of the face and the overall impression which is better than examining individual features. You can do that later.
