Abstract:The Model of The Three Human Personality Types is a novel discovery that unravels the function of the human brain and determine the relationship between personality traits that affect behavior and individual differences in cognitive processes related to achievement in all stages of the education and how personality and health are interrelated. According to this model all people are divided into only three human types with common personality and biological traits, type A, B and C. The benefits of the Model has already been recognized in medicine and health prevention.
The purpose of this study is to present the Three Human Personality Type Model, as well as the unique benefits that this model offers to teachers and students and everyone who is getting involved in children’s education.
The Model of The Three Human Personality Types was discovered in 2002 by Mr. George Paschalidis. Mr. Paschalidis started his research by interviewing and observing clinical and healthy individuals from different regions and nationalities and his studies include over 100.000 individuals.
The three human types are classified according to personality traits, the way of thinking and behaving, the emotional processing of experiences, the brain structure and function, the enterotype, the skeletal structure, biometals and vitamins absorption. Each human type is genetically inherited from one of the parents, who also determine the dominant gene.
The basic personality traits of type A are quick-temper, impatience, panic, action and self-confidence for type B are patience, anxiety about future, hesitancy, self-control, reluctance in decision-making, romance and maternal feelings, whereas for type C, the basic characteristic traits are obsessions, persistence, ambition, fear of rejection, feeling pain for past events and passion.
By using this model, the teacher comes closer to himself by identifying why he is behaving in the way he does. He understands the way that each child is thinking and how he must behave to each child according to his type. The model also provides insights on the appropriate vocational guidance for each child, as each type has different particularities, strengths and weaknesses, thus different jobs suit to each type. In a similar way each type can perform better in specific sports. Therefore, by knowing the athlete’s type, we can “unlock” the athletic abilities of each type.
The classification of the three types describes basically the three discrete biological functional systems of the three human types, with each type having its own ethics, strengths and weaknesses and its own character. It is very important to know our student’s type, so that we can easily identify and designate his abilities and skills and give him the right stepping stones to a happy, creative and successful life.
The Model of The Three Human Personality Types propose novel strategies for a successful educational system depending on the individual differences in the ability to execute cognitive processes that are underpinned by differences in neural function of each human personality type.
