    IntroductionThis Insights Discovery profile is based on Andreea Lemnarus responses to the InsightsPreference Evaluator which was completed on 09 November 2015.

    The origins of personality theory can be traced back to the fifth century BC, when Hippocratesidentified four distinct energies exhibited by different people. The Insights System is built aroundthe model of personality first identified by the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. This modelwas published in his 1921 work Psychological Types and developed in subsequent writings.Jungs work on personality and preferences has since been adopted as the seminal work inunderstanding personality and has been the subject of study for thousands of researchers to thepresent day.

    Using Jung's typology, this Insights Discovery profile offers a framework for self-understandingand development. Research suggests that a good understanding of self, both strengths andweaknesses, enables individuals to develop effective strategies for interaction and can help themto better respond to the demands of their environment.

    Generated from several hundred thousand permutations of statements, this profile is unique. Itreports statements which your Evaluator responses indicate may apply to you. Modify or deleteany statement which does not apply, but only after checking with colleagues or friends to identifywhether the statement may be a blind spot for you.

    Use this profile pro-actively. That is, identify the key areas in which you can develop and takeaction. Share the important aspects with friends and colleagues. Ask for feedback from them onareas which seem particularly relevant for you and develop an action plan for growth personallyand interpersonally.

    OverviewThese statements provide a broad understanding of Andreeas work style. Use this section togain a better understanding of her approaches to her activities, relationships and decisions.

    Personal Style

    Ingenious, enthusiastic and outgoing, Andreea has great personal charm and can be successfulin a variety of roles. She tends to have an interest in the new and unusual and is gifted atexpressing her feelings. If she is in charge of having to monitor the detailed work of others shemay find this uninteresting, stressful and exhausting. She may become pessimistic and gloomywhen she is thwarted or fails to see ways to make the important changes in her life. Attending toothers' wants is felt by her to be a satisfying, legitimate way of expressing her own deeper needs.

    At her best in jobs which deal with people and situations that require co-operative working, shedislikes impersonal tasks and work demanding factual accuracy, unless she can be free toinclude the people factor. She pays scant attention to negative, pessimistic or divisive situationsor conclusions. Routine is the real bad news for her, and it may sap her energy. Work that ispurely practical or work that leaves her on her own for long periods can make her irritable. She isconvinced of her own abilities and is constantly seeking environments where people willappreciate her.

    She is an imaginative and creative visionary who is a source of inspiration to most. Her obviouscharm and enthusiasm tends to make her popular with friends and colleagues alike. She will takeevery possible opportunity to generate new relationships or to be with others. Her energy comesfrom a variety of new projects and interests. She may show interest in so many different thingsthat she has difficulty focusing on priorities. Her social gatherings are frequent and worthattending, particularly when they mark important events.

    With her friendly organisational skills, Andreea is supportive of other colleagues and will enthuseover most projects. Able to cope with a number of projects at once, Andreea gets a lot ofenjoyment from the social aspects of work. She is used to doing several things at once, butothers may view some of this as superficial activity. She may have had personal experience ofthe view that worthwhile success comes only after suffering significant misfortune. She isaccomplished at working with individuals and groups and can quickly find herself pushed into aleadership role.

    Her mental processes operate best when she is in contact with other people. At times, eventscan overwhelm her and she may find it almost impossible to say No, even when the demandsare unreasonable. Exhibiting a tendency to become concerned and hurt if her ideas are met withindifference or criticism, she may take conflict and rejection personally. Andreea radiatesgoodwill and enthusiasm. She is optimistic about life in general and human potential in particular.Andreea may generate more ideas, possibilities and plans in one day than others might managein a month!

    Interacting with Others

    Andreea's ingenuity, warmth and her understanding of others allows her to proceed through lifewith great confidence. She is very effective in a leadership role, able to persuade others of the

  • Andreea Lemnaru

    value of her vision. She radiates sympathy and understanding to all by nurturing and supporting.She is at her best in co-operative roles that deal with people and allow her to air her views. Anunconditional positive regard for others is a strongly held feeling that Andreea values. Sheprefers to be active and working with like minded people.

    Andreea is a popular colleague and is at ease in the company of most people and in open worksituations. Andreea enjoys involvement in many activities, with a variety of people. She isstimulated by doing the unexpected or the unusual. Looking for perfection in a relationship canresult in her sensing a vague dissatisfaction with the reality of the way things are. Andreea isvery co-operative and articulate, communicating sympathy, concern and a willingness to becomeinvolved. A creative thinker, Andreea is generally warm, enthusiastic and confident of her ownabilities. She makes stimulating company with her witty and interesting conversational style.

    She may harbour a belief that no one really understands her or cares about her. She maybecome emotional and rather vulnerable in this state. Andreea has a remarkable ability to getpeople to follow her lead. She may assume that she can talk her way round anybody. She iswarm-hearted, popular and sociable, with a large number of friends or acquaintances. She cantake issue with both colleagues and superiors but is unlikely to bear a grudge for long. She isnoted for her innate ability to inspire and encourage others around her and exhibits excellentinterpersonal skills.

    Decision Making

    People occasionally see Andreea making decisions that appear to fly in the face of logic. Sheviews talking through ideas with people to promote decision making as an effective strategy ofitself. Andreea's natural curiosity for new ideas will bring new and fresh ways of thinking to thegroup. In her attempts to please others she may make promises she cannot fulfil. She preferstasks or projects which allow flexibility of scheduling.

    She may unconsciously manipulate the process to get her own way. She is likely to decide infavour of the solution that brings the highest level of approval from others. When a situationdemands forceful tactics, she can take the action necessary but will seldom go to extremes toobtain retribution or reward. She is a quick decision maker and considers people within thecontext of the result of the task. She would perform better if she focused more on in-depth studyof analytical data during the decision making process.

    Trying to focus more on the facts, not just on the people, can be helpful in her decision making.Her slogan might be Act now pay later and her perceptions of life are based on the impact herdecisions have on those around her. She has the ability to appear to listen to other people'sviewpoints but may not necessarily be hearing or intending to action them. She may valueopinions over facts in considering a possible course of action. Others may see her decisions asunrealistic in certain circumstances.

    Possible Blind SpotsOur perceptions of self may be different to the perceptions others have of us. We project who weare onto the outside world through our persona and are not always aware of the effect our lessconscious behaviours have on others. These less conscious behaviours are termed BlindSpots. Highlight the important statements in this section of which you are unaware and test themfor validity by asking for feedback from friends or colleagues.

    Andreeas possible Blind Spots:

    Because Andreea places such a strong priority on experiencing new things, she sometimesallows her other responsibilities to suffer from lack of attention. She should realise that onoccasions confrontation can clear the air. She may sometimes come across to others assomewhat boastful and selfish.

    Her constant ready socialising can interfere with the job at hand and get her into trouble.Because she is rather easily distracted, she may have difficulty disciplining herself to completethe task at all costs. She may be seen by others as shallow or superficial due in part to her glibway with words and her orientation with the future. She often overlooks her own needs due to herdesire to please or help other people. She values fast action and doing many things at once.When under pressure she may get the job done by cutting corners or neglecting quality. Seen bymany as a smooth talking persuader, Andreea may seem indifferent to people who appear to beless of an extraverted achiever than herself.

    She focuses on emotions to the point that she may fail to see the logical consequences of heractions. Sometimes she is so intent on her own plans that she doesn't stop to listen to whatothers have to say. She may be so concerned about the feelings of others that she can be blindto important facts when the situation involves hurt feelings. Taking the time to pay closerattention to what is actually going on in the world around her and listening carefully to both theinput and reactions of others will help her. She should try to suppress her automatic good feelingtowards people who treat her well, applying a cooler perception to the reality of the situation.

    Opposite TypeThe description in this section is based on Andreea's opposite type on the Insights Wheel. Often,we have most difficulty understanding and interacting with those whose preferences are differentto our own. Recognising these characteristics can help in developing strategies for personalgrowth and enhanced interpersonal effectiveness.

    Recognising your Opposite Type:

    Andreeas opposite Insights type is the Observer, Jungs Introverted Thinking type.

    Observers are precise, cautious and disciplined and are painstaking and conscientious in workthat requires attention and accuracy. They are objective thinkers, concerned with the rightanswer and will avoid making quick decisions. Andreea may see the Observer as hesitating toacknowledge a mistake or as becoming immersed in researching for data to support an isolatedview.

    Observers tend not to trust strangers and will worry about outcomes, their reputation and theirjob. They are reticent about expressing their feelings and Andreea will often see the Observer asunresponsive, cool and uncaring. Observers draw conclusions based on factual data. They maybe slow at producing results, as gathering data is the stimulating part of the job for them.

    Observers like to make rules based on their own standards and apply those rules to daily life.Andreea may find herself at odds with Observers due to their private nature and lack ofenthusiasm for social events. Introverted analysis may prevent the Observer from expressingthoughts as readily as Andreea would wish.
