Benefits of Purple Profiling in Children

1934135Purple Profiling is an observational method of understanding how people work best. It's not about boxes or labels. It's a combination of understanding personality and the effects of how we work, learn, communicate and process the world. It's not a simple questionnaire that places you in a confined box. It's a way to understand the elements you need in your life to feel happy and balanced.

This specially designed observational method as been applied to people from 18 months upwards. It's hugely beneficial for understanding the strengths of children. The routines and activities that best suit their personalities.

It's particularly helpful to hone talents, strengths, communication and help with behavioural difficulties. Sleeping patterns, for example, are vital for a harmonious household. It helps to understand how to make your children independent for life. It helps to find your children natural talents which in many cases will lead to their life long careers.

This profiling helps to avoid labels such as ADHD, ADD, Aspergers Syndrome and stop difficulties with speech and literacy developing. Get the help to understand how your child can learn maybe in ways you didn't yourself? Many of these challenges are hereditary.

Episode 61 of the podcast talks in great detail about the topic:

It's important to bring out the best positively. Too many assessments are about judgments and leave you with a sense of what you can't do, it only ever matters what you can do. I set up the session so there is a positive experience with a sense of achievement. There is no wrong way to do the tasks - only your way.

The personality starts to fully form at age 7 so if you feel there are more challenging aspects of the personality the earlier you start working with these personalities the easier it is to get a result. It's like fine tuning an engine. Bring out the positive characteristics rather than the negative ones.

Psychological Assessments to determine Cognitive Development

FEAR1I was 4 when I had my first official Psychological Assessment and it was a traumatic experience. My parents took me to see the movie “Lady and the Tramp” immediately afterwards to help me recover.

This is why when I now do Psychological Assessments of young children I am very focused on a fun enjoyable experience - a trauma free zone if you like.

I was 8 when I had my second Psychological Assessment and 16 when I had my third. I have lived with hereditary Profound Dyslexic Spectrum Disorder since birth and it still impacts of every aspect of my daily life - but I developed ways to cope.

I remember there were pages and pages of how I did not measure up to other children my age. There was never help given to my parents and I to assist me in working the way I needed to work. The only focus was on what I could not do.

Hence, this is why I started to develop my own methods of learning from 4. I was also acutely aware at 4 that I was completely incapable of doing what the School and Government Shrinks wanted me to so.

These days, I set children and families up for success no matter how “behind” the rest of the world perceives a child’s cognitive development and behaviors.

Every family I have dealt with personally, and that is thousands of people at this stage, are set up to succeed in the precise ways that their child is capable of learning and developing.

Personality is a massive factor in development. Some people are more independent that others. They may walk faster, they may be quieter. Some people are born chatterboxes and others do not speak until much later on. Some will not play by themselves others are loners. No one can be put on a scale and expected to fit.

Even children who have hearing impairments and a great big long list of conditions I deal with can develop better and learn faster with the right interventions. It does not matter what it is - no two children can rise to their challenges in the same ways.

1.

How can a professional determine if a 4-year is up to task with cognitive development?

Most professionals rely on standardized test. Personally, I do a session with the child using my “toolbox.” This involves a whole series of games with everything from Playdoh to magnets. This allows me and my Team to test abilities across a whole spectrum without the child even being aware of it. All the testing is completed without the child feeling like they are being examined.

2.

What if the 4-year old cannot do all the cognitive skills for his/her age?

Should a parent worry?

I do not deem tasks age appropriate. I strongly believe development is a little bit more complex and I think it is unfortunate that a lot of learning difficulties are determined on an age scale. This ends up making parents feel very bad about their child’s development. During my initial assessments, yes sure it is always very obvious to me what people cannot do, but it is equally obvious if they have fantastic visual pattern recognition or memory association skills. These can be used to develop the areas that are lacking. Just the same ways I achieved a First Class Honors Degree followed by a Doctorate when told as a teenager that University was “beyond my status.”

I think the system sets up parents to worry. But one of my key tasks in taking on any new case is to put everyone’s mind at ease and make everything doable. Families always walk out the door with a way, structure, plan an if necessary Team support to do everything.

3.

How can a parent help a child develop these skills?

I set up programs for parents to use the everyday in their own home to help their children. I think one of the disadvantages of our technological world is that it is very removed from other people and parents. Yes, I do like to use some Apps but I like to develop skills using less remote games. Child cookery, for example, builds time management skills and the use of a radio in the background helps children filter information.

100 Years of Psychology Redefined by European Scientific Doctor

Psychology-Image100 Years of Psychology Redefined by European Scientific Doctor

(Extracts from Dr. O’Reilly In Conversation with Marie O’Riordan - November 14th 2014).

Opening with “My dream is to make the world a better place which means embracing academia and scientific research,” Dr. Naoisé O’Reilly outlined how she is doing just that.

“In 6 years spent in a vacuum quietly developing psychological success systems, I took the chalice of work by Carl Jung, Isabel Briggs Myers/Katharine Cook Briggs, David Keirsey and Maria Montessori, further developing it into the ground breaking system, Purple Success®, I have categorized people in new ways, not simply based on who they are and their temperaments.  Jung and Myers/Briggs obsessed over who we are.  I, on the other hand, obsess over who people need to be - the best of themselves for the betterment of all mankind - categorizing them based on how quickly they can obtain their desired results and the environment needed to achieve this.

“Surprisingly, Marie O’Riordan and I are only the 4th group to impact specific areas of psychology in a century which makes it very difficult to explain exactly what we do as we have rewritten a hundred years of psychology”, Dr. O’Reilly added.

“My aim when we started was to take literacy and intelligence out of the same sentence.  You see, people can’t believe that, although I couldn’t stand up and read aloud to you, I have attained the academic results I have.  This is why I call myself an Expression Developist™, having discovered a way to express myself so the world finally takes me seriously.  Thankfully, Marie can read and talk for days!”

“I’m often asked how our work differs from that of other pioneers.  Simply put, our methods produce results fast, we concentrate on each client’s individuality rather than them functioning as a cog in a system and we build up each person to work at higher levels than they imagined possible, usually independent of large organizations.”

“Our aim for our clients is ‘superhero’ levels of success, becoming top in their fields at rocket speed.  We are totally inclusive, our clients ranging in age from babies to those in their 70s and we don’t care whether someone’s had several marriages or careers, or never been able to read, write or even talk.  Our methods work with everyone.”

“When asked what I do, I worry my answer might sound portentous but, although I’m not one to dominate conversations, when I answer there’s always a genuine interest in finding out even more about psychology.”

“I have developed unique new profiling methods, applicable not just to personality types but also to differing learning styles, to understand how people process information from the world around them and how they need to think.  These are distinct ways of viewing life events and timelines in order to break negative patterns, not just in their lifetime, but right across generational blueprints, which is another reason why this body of research is unparalleled.”

Dr. O’Reilly continued, “I now fully understand how humans develop as people.  Interestingly, our work over the last 6 years has freed clients from the stifling structure and behaviour patterns of others, enabling them to grow and build on what has happened in their families and environments before them.”

Continuing the conversation, Dr. O’Reilly added, “I was obsessed with taking an individual to success not only by understanding the individual but also the effects of everyone else around them, teaching them how to cope and succeed regardless of internal and external factors.”

“The wonderful fact is that no challenge is too great.  My team and I can now teach completely illiterate children to read and write in just 4 hours.  I have lost count of the number of ‘A’s that have been achieved by students who, just like me, were written-off.  We flicked a switch in their heads enabling sustainable success for all.”

“Marie and I create environments where everyone succeeds, whether they’re teams, companies, students or teachers.  With our help, sports people have won the ultimate ‘gold’ at World Championships in record time, along with many more sporting titles.  Family businesses have gone from bust to making millions of dollars within days.  It doesn’t matter what the goal is, it can be achieved fastest using our psychological methods.”

“We have worked with thousands of people both within our custom-built facilities and all around the world.  We don’t see dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, audio processing disorders and so on as barriers because, with us, everyone works in their own individual optimum way.  This simply does not happen in regular systems and this is the reason why our results are truly outstanding.  We’ve proved our theories by discovering the keys and methods needed for individual success.”

Dr. O’Reilly concluded by saying, “I see endless possibilities for the world with these methods.”

Why Talking Doesn’t Change the World – What I Have Learned in 6 Years, Dr. Naoise O’Reilly

Content-EvolutionWhy is it so hard to change the perceptions of dyslexia and other conditions in education?

It would be so easy if all you had to do was talk about your story or be academically brilliant to change not only how others achieve but perceptions of what they can achieve.

I have always wondered why ideas of what dyslexics can do have not changed with all the successful famous people from Jamie Oliver to Albert Einstein. If all these people had done so much before me, why was I told at 17 I could not do any of it and that going to college was and I quote, "above my status".

If only what you had done could change the perceptions of how others approach the next generation.

One of the biggest frustrations for me was it never mattered what I had done before - I was always judged at the next stage of education. So even though I got over 500 points in my leaving cert and was in the 25% of the country the year I sat it when I got to college, lecturers refused to help me with notes because "I shouldn't be there and sure what was I going to do in the future anyway" and when I got a 1st for my degree and went on to my PhD I was given a lecture on the pyramids of education in my viva as to why I didn't deserve to be there at this level. It never mattered at any level what I had done before or what others had done before me. There was still a concrete idea that I couldn't be academically successful.

But almost 6 years on since I started my own education projects to develop methods to change education I now understand why I didn't want to be a motivational speaker. Why my approach has all been about action.

In order to really change the patterns of generations and the educational blueprint that has built up over decades you have to create an experience for people. They have to feel and know the difference.

In order to be truly successful people have to experience what it is like to learn differently - they have to understand how they absorb information, how they process it and how they can be truly successful.

Yes, the methods seem very simple to me and are easily applied to all as they are universal but the crux is that they have to be applied to real people. Then for every person I help to see differently and every family that is successful or every business they will approach the next set of people in a new light. I was told recently that "you have made me look differently at my employees and I can see how they learn now" and this was from working with someone's child. But by understanding their own child in a different way now from experience they see their own employees differently. I have always thought that business had the ability to drive education and that is why I work across both sectors now.

When I set out almost 6 years ago I had three objectives:

1: Literacy and intellegnce not in the same sentence.

2: Make school more enjoyable for everyone.

3: Make companies understand how everyone works differently and stop focusing on the difference.

I guess I have added a 4th one - to make everyone successful.

Almost 6 years on I have a set of methods to apply universally to the whole world to do just this - but it'll never be about me just talking about them. It's all about making as many people as possible experience something new that will gradually change the world over time. You can never go back once you have looked at people in a new light. You can never expect a dyslexic to be defined by their reading age once you have seen them get 9 out of 10 in the spelling test or 44 out 45 in the maths test. You now expect them to achieve academically and in life.

I have never been one for talking about what I'm going to do - I always just did it and now I understand why that action changes the blueprint for the future.

I'm an expression developist now because I express myself often but I give this ability to others too.

Dr. Naoisé O'Reilly.
