This year we told The PD Stats Robot (patent still pending) that he couldn’t go on his vacation until he published the yearly Personality Dimensions® statistics. Working diligently with his eye on the prize, he churned out this year’s report.
Once again The PD Stats Robot and the rest of the staff at CLSR Inc. would like to thank all of the Certified Trainers who took the time to send in their workshop statistics over the past year. Collecting workshop statistics allows us to do further research on the reliability and validity of Personality Dimensions®. If you look at the Primary Colour Breakdowns over the past 14 years, you will notice very little change with them over time; In fact, there is no change from last year and the year before in the percentage breakdowns. How’s that for reliability?!?! Full statistics for the Canadian market, including this year’s, are published every year in July and are posted at: http://www.personalitydimensions.com/published-statistics
Collecting workshop statistics also helps us in creating new products. For example, the job categories found in Career Dimensions™ were taken directly from the statistics reported to us by Certified Trainers. Your statistics also helped us in developing the recently released PD for Youth Online™, and PD Basics Online.
We ask that every time you conduct an Introductory or Application Session, even if you had your clients take the assessment online, that you keep track of your participants’ Primary Colour Preference, and Introversion/Extraversion preference. You can find a form on the USB included with your Building Blocks/Manual to do this. Statistics can then be faxed to 905-760-0113, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also submit your statistics through the web at: http://www.personalitydimensions.com/submit-your-statistics.
Once received at our office, our PD Stats Robot (patent still pending) diligently processes and categorizes every number and colour submitted! Also, remember to submit your statistics even if you are administering Personality Dimensions® Online. Remember that the assessment component isn’t the final word on an individual’s primary colour, especially if scores are close; clarification also comes from the Brightening Group exercises in a workshop.
Until next time, join us in wishing PD Stats Robot (patent still pending) safe travels and a relaxing vacation.
