I wrote in a previous post that my Wealth Dynamics profile is Supporter – and that, by accepting this, my business started to take off.
Recently, however, I re-took the Wealth Dynamics test* and found out that I now have a Star profile!
I can’t say that I was totally surprised by this – Star was previously my secondary profile, and as I mentioned before, I shunned the Supporter profile and wanted to be a Star or Creator (Creator is now my secondary profile, and Supporter my tertiary profile…)
How can my Wealth Dynamics profile change?
During my IT career, I worked for the leading producer of psychometric tests and personality questionnaires in the UK, so I learned a fair bit about how they work!
Because personality questionnaires rely on YOU to complete them, they are subjective, and the results can vary slightly, depending on how you’re feeling on a particular day, or how you’re feeling generally in your life, job or business.
You’re unlikely to change from one extreme to another (for example, in Wealth Dynamics terms, from a Creator one day to a Trader the next), but slight shifts to one side or the other are quite normal. So for my profile to change from being a Supporter to a Star is not a huge shift, as they are neighbours.
Get clear about your primary Wealth Dynamics profile
A few days before I re-did my profile, my friend John Williams (of Screw Work Let’s Play / 30 Day Challenge) pointed out something which I had not appreciated before.
He said that many people spend most of their lives in their secondary profile, rather than their primary profile. Perhaps we’re so conditioned to believe that work should be hard, that we simply refuse to accept that, by following our natural inclinations, work – and success – can be relatively easy.
The first time I took the Wealth Dynamics test, I had not long left my IT role – where I had always played the role of Supporter – so I was still thinking like a Supporter. And when my business took off, it was because I had reverted to a similar, familiar role.
But that success was short-lived, and I have since realised that I find it stressful being a Supporter – whereas the idea of building a brand around The Quiet Entrepreneur, and shining a spotlight on other talented and inspiring introverts feels empowering.
So make sure, when you do your Wealth Dynamics profile*, that you’re in a mindset that will support the business of your dreams, rather than falling back on old habits and roles you may have played your entire life – which no longer serve you.
