My True Colors

Alli Smith Hour 2

Childhood

I had the most difficult time fitting into an academic routine. I learned by doing and experiencing rather than by listening and reading. I needed physical involvement in the learning process and was motivated by my own natural competitive nature and sense of fun.

Relationship

I seek a relationship with shared activities and interests. I like to explore to ways to energize the relationship. In a relationship I need to be bold and thrive on physical contact. I enjoy giving extravagant gifts that bring obvious pleasure to special people in my life.

Work

I am bored and restless with jobs that are routine and structured. I am satisfied in careers that allow me independence and freedom, while utilizing my physical coordination and my love of tools.

Leadership Style

I expect quick action, I work in the here and now, I am performance oriented, I have a flexible approach, I welcome change, and I expect people to "make it fun."

Symptoms of a Bad Day

Rudeness and defiance, breaking the rules intentionally, running away and dropping out, use of stimulants, acting out boisterously, lying and cheating, and physical aggressiveness.
