The Shadow Types system identifies 12 innate tendencies that we all have. Our personality results from which of these tendencies we favor and which ones we avoid. The Shadow Types survey gives you a profile of your own, unique combination of these tendencies as well as your dominant Shadow Type.

The Twelve Shadow Types Visual Graphic

The Shadow Types system opens your eyes to look at people in a way you’ve never seen them before. You will recognize common patterns of acting and reacting that different kinds of people have. You will understand what someone’s basic approach to life is and how best to connect with them. You will also be aware of other peoples’ shadows—as well as your own—and you’ll be know how best to handle those shadowy parts so that they don’t throw you off balance. The result?  You gain freedom. Freedom to create what you want for yourself rather than instead of reacting unconsciously in a knee-jerk way out of habit and recreating what you don’t want. Freedom to relate to others more meaningfully, more intimately, more lovingly. In short: Knowledge of the Shadow Types broadens your choices about how you live your life and how you relate to other people.

“When I took the Shadow Types training several years ago, my eyes were opened to a richer and more comprehensive understanding of people than I had come across in all my years as a psychology professor. As a result of this training, I have greater insight into the internal dynamics that form an individual’s personality as well as the person’s troublesome behavioral patterns. The training also provided me with pathways for helping people to deal with their issues and to function more effectively in their lives. All in all, I highly recommend this training both to professionals and to anyone who wants to understand people from an exciting, new angle of great depth.”
