What is Character Profiling – Part ll

Returning this week with the Part II to his Character Profiling topic is Ronald E. Crampton, MA, LAC, LPD.  Ronald has an active counseling practice in Aurora and lives in Murphy Creek with his wife, Mary.  If you missed last week’s article, catch up with Part I by clicking here.

Part II:  “Character is often used synonymously with personality. I use the definition for Character as: Attributes or features that make up and distinguish an individual; and the definition for Personality as: The totality of an individual's behaviors. In short, Character is who you are and Personality is the sum of how you present who you are. Personality is your behavior, which should be guided by your character.

Every individual exhibits four behaviors. Each behavior is concurrent and chronic with each other and each are instigated by our temperament. Temperament is our innate way of responding/reacting to life events. Though humans may be able to lie, Temperament never lies. Your behaviors can reveal your true temperament.

Every animal has temperament – But we are not simple animals. Temperament as a character strength is the human ability of knowing what my temperament is – and using it! This is a human ability: A dog may be loyal, but a dog does not know what loyalty is.

Character is your core. Character is who you are!

Character Profiling is about defining the core of who you are and helping you guide your personality to live your life. With Character Profiling, there is an assessment of six virtues. A virtue is a combination of character strengths. Each virtue consists of five character strengths. Each character strength and virtue are staged in a progressive flow.

Generally, the more incongruent the flow, the more chaos you are experiencing – A Pendulum Crash. Through collaboration and observation of your four behaviors, a premise is established for which character is genuine to your core and which is defined by an extrinsic “what”. Ultimately, when you know who you are, your choices become yours, and your life becomes yours.”

If you would like to learn more about AV Treatment and Character Profiling and how it may be useful in your life, Ronald can be contacted at his counseling office at 303-481-4212 or via his website.  He is also an MCGC Neighbors Membership Partner and offers a discount on professional fees to paid members of MCGC Neighbors. We want to thank Ronald for sharing his knowledge on this subject with the neighbors in Murphy Creek.

Native Plant Sale at the Plains Conservation Center

With Spring arriving, it’s time to start sprucing up our yards. Colorado native plants can be a great option for adding low maintenance color and foliage to our landscapes. 

The Plains Conservation Center is holding a native plant sale this Saturday, May 17 at their Aurora site (Hampden Rd about 1 mile west of Gun Club Rd.)  There will be a variety of wildflowers and grasses available that are native to the Colorado Front Range and our prairie.  

This is a great way to support the PCC’s efforts to maintain original prairie land and its environment.  And it’s a great way to encourage birds, butterflies and pollinators to visit our yards.  The Plains Conservation Center is an MCGC Neighbors’ membership partner.  A discount on their membership fee and certain events is available to paid MCGC Neighbors' members.
