When it comes to prepping groups or even getting your loved ones on board with prepping we need to be able to understand the different personality traits people might have. Talking to someone who is very analytically takes a different approach than talking to someone who takes an pessimistic approach to everything.
Learning how to read people is also something that will come in very handy in any SHTF scenario. In this article titled “Learn How to Read People and Peel Back the Onion” I went over the different layers of a relationship and how much you should trust someone.
In this show we talk about some of the different personality types, and how we can handle some of these traits. There are quite a few tests you can take that categorize personality’s differently. Some use elements (water, earth, wind, fire) And the one that Lisa and I took on the show catergorizes different personality’s like so…
Analytical – Analytical people are known for being systematic, well organized and deliberate. These individuals appreciate facts and information presented in a logical manner as documentation of truth. They enjoy organization and completion of detailed tasks. Others may see him at times as being too cautious, overly structured, someone who does things too much by the book.
Driver – They thrive on the thrill of the challenge and the internal motivation to succeed. Drivers are practical folks who focus on getting results. They can do a lot in a very short time. They usually talk fast, direct and to the point. Often viewed as decisive, direct and pragmatic.
Amiable – They are dependable, loyal and easygoing. They like things that are non-threatening and friendly. They hate dealing with impersonal details and cold hard facts. They are usually quick to reach a decision. Often described as a warm person and sensitive to the feelings of others but at the same time wishy-washy.
Expressive – Very outgoing and enthusiastic, with a high energy level. They are also great idea generators, but usually do not have the ability to see the idea through to completion. They enjoy helping others and are particularly fond of socializing. They are usually slow to reach a decision. Often thought of as a talker, overly dramatic, impulsive, and manipulative.
Take the test yourself, it will show you some pretty interesting results. Here are a few more links to articles about personality types…

Coming up this Saturday we will be doing the pilot episode of S.P.T.V. (Survivalist Prepper Television) This is going to be a Google hangout and A show for preppers by preppers about what we are all doing. Everyone’s situation is different and while many aspects of prepping are universal, one size does not fit all.
- Different guests every show.
- From Bloggers to everyday preppers & survivalists like you.
- SPTV is about getting different perspectives.
- Learning about what you feel is important.
- Giving a voice to the everyday prepper/survivalist.
- Becoming more prepared and helping each other out along the way.
My vision for the show…
Each week we will have different guests on ranging from the average prepper at home to some of the preparedness experts we all know.
Each show will be on a certain topic and we will have a round table discussion about questions the listeners ask.
