I am excited about the webinar, "How Dare You...Dare to Be YOU!" It is an opportunity for people to gain insight into themselves and their ability to set appropriate boundaries in their life. Many individuals find that they have issues setting limits in various relationships they have in their personal, professional, or social settings. They are unable to set boundaries that will protect their interests. There are so many men and women who need assistance with learning how to address these issues in an appropriate manner.
Some individuals appear to have a split personality because they attempt to be all things to all people. They do not clearly delineate their identity which is composed of their likes, dislikes, desires, motivations, and tolerance levels. These individuals have a specific personality type that drives them to be "people-pleasers" who will find themselves changing with the wind. They may find themselves as being looked upon by more dominant personalities as "door-mats" who are easily manipulated because they never make it known that they have limitations to what they are willing to do for other people. Everyone must learn that it is important to set boundaries in order for others to understand who they are and how far they can go in their requests or behavior towards them. This can be a daring thing for the "people-pleaser" since it requires for them to ultimately put their foot down, say "No", and set the record straight as to their boundaries. Those who are accustomed to getting what they want from this personality type may become upset when the boundary lines are set and question the individual in a manner such as, "How dare you!"
The personality type described can be described as the "compliant personality" because the desires, needs, or demands of others are what drives their decision making process. Individuals with this personality type often tends to try to minimize any differences he/she may have with others in order to blend in with those who have a more dominant personality type. These individuals have a very hard time acknowledging or even refusing disruptive or problematic behavior and/or confront that behavior. They often take on too many responsibilities or set limited to no boundaries in their lives out of fear. The "Compliant Personality" can change how they are perceived and the cycle they have created by overcoming their fears. Once those fears are acknowledged and addressed, the individual can begin to evaluate their relationships and set the proper boundaries in their life that will make them happy.
