Encountering a personality like Trump's is highly unusual. People like him can't rationally exist, we tell ourselves. He possesses a multitude of confounding characteristics that defy his office and position in life. But, with his combination of skills and deficiencies, he did win the presidency, didn't he? Yet we remain incredulous and struggle to come to terms with how this happened.

It seemed like everyone in Ottawa knew Mike Robinson far better than I did. And yet, like everyone else, I had been touched by his healthy and warm personality in ways that were unusual in that city. His greatest gift to us all, important or, like me, less so, is the sense of goodness and fairness he left us in a world where cut and thrust are essential tools of the trade. He was good in every way that we could possibly imagine that word.

The main differentiating factor between introverts and extroverts is where we gain our energy. Extroverts get it from being out in the world, socializing, stimulating that brain reward centre in big ways, and having those interactions. Introverts re-energize by being alone.

Red: Passionate, fiery and adventurous are all words that can be used to describe you. You love old Hollywood and anything vintage. There's nothing better than going to an auction during the day and then being the center of attention at a fabulous party that night.
Open any woman's closet and you will find dozens of bags. Different occasions call for different styles and mostly we tend to wear several hats, whether it be business woman, mom or best friend. Most of us do, however, have that one favourite bag but what does it say about you?

The general consensus among many people is that revealing their true personality can make them seem unlikable or incompetent. However, if you just try to be a robot, then you are guaranteed to achieve very little. As such, it makes more sense to take the risk of exposing your personality instead of hiding behind a mask.
For some, the idea of building a personal brand feels a little, well, icky. You might wonder, How do you build a personal brand without feeling like you're selling your soul? Actually, selling your soul is exactly what you should do. Stick with me, here...
These days, given the overwhelming tsunami of social media, the conventional wisdom of who we are has shifted away from us and onto others, to become "You Are What You Share"...whether you choose to share your feelings about food, clothing, French lawyers/politicians, or the act of sharing itself.
Leading people is often seen as a side activity and taken for granted with some people being more talented than others, which is unfortunately still a widespread opinion in many organizations. Indeed, there are huge differences in the quality of leadership. But why is that?
As a psychotherapist, I'm always intrigued by the question of what makes people tick. It's always most important to listen and to ask, but the truth is that people tell a lot about themselves indirectly. Two signatures -- Joan Rivers' and that of former Bloc Québecois leader Gilles Duceppe -- gave me food for thought, as I pondered the psychology of the Separatist.
One premise of handwriting analysis is that people express their primary orientation in life, be it to the spiritual or the material, expressing an affinity with the vertical or the horizontal, every time they pick up a pen. Some writers strongly emphasize the width of handwriting. These are the people who live off their senses and have gifts in realms where the senses reign strong.
This is not about lowering standards, convictions or expectations that I have made for myself. It is about lowering the expectations I have placed on others. And in the process, allowing people to be the marvelous and wonderful creation they were meant to be.
As humans being, we're hardwired to engage with a good story. That's how we learn as children and that's how we continue to enjoy learning as adults. If you ask any advertising expert and they'll tell you that a good story can sell pretty much any product. Storytelling can also help a business retain clients and sell more of their products, but few businesses tap into the power of storytelling. Don't make that mistake.
You never really know what kind of youngster you've got until you test him out in the real world. Our recent trip to Orlando confirmed that our little junior is quite the joiner. We shouldn't be surprised by his courage, I suppose. His nickname is Turbo Ginger for god sakes.
If you've watched one of our shows or met me in person, you know I am not one of those characters. In fact, I'm amazed they let me on TV at all. In real life, I'm usually the quiet one in the corner. I prefer listening to speaking, and the only rooms I own are the ones in my house.
Take a look at Trump's signature. In general, cursive handwriting is comprised of straight lines and loops. But Trump favours straight lines and does away with curves or loops. For the graphologist, roundedness implies emotionality and softer aspects of the personality. But what is the meaning of the straight line?
