Personality traits are habitual patterns of behavior, thought, and emotion that are relatively stable over time. Personality traits can either positively or negatively affect qualities, and therefore affect the goals that the individual is trying to achieve. Personality traits are sometimes mistakenly characterized as unchangeable, but Dharma’s research shows otherwise. In fact, it is easy to change a trait if one is provided with the right intervention.

Dharma has been successful in strengthening the neural connections associated with personality traits because of the methodology we have adopted in categorizing traits. The methodology we have adopted is as follows:

Dharma's research reveals that personality traits naturally fall under two categories.

Foundation personality traits that are unbalanced always hinder one or more competencies/qualities and thereby restrict the individual in achieving a goal. A foundation trait is referred to as unbalanced when the trait values are not balanced within the trait pair. Examples of foundation traits include: empathy, happiness, sensitivity, perfectionism, and nervousness. If empathy is not balanced, then it implies to either low empathy or high empathy.

Success personality traits have the ability to increase your competencies/qualities and help you achieve your goals. Unlike foundation personality traits, they need not be balanced to achieve your goals. To increase the level of your qualities, you may need to strengthen the neural connections associated with one or more of the success traits. Success traits include creativity, passion, openness, risk taking, sociability and networking. Success traits also follow the trait pair concept; for example, sociability consists of the traits introversion and extroversion

Using a combination of foundation and success personality trait development technologies, Dharma Life Sciences enhances the qualities that are required to achieve goals.
