Personality Insights and Student Wellbeing​


By Jo Malone, Director of Education, Persona Education

“The greatest gift you can give to a student is the opportunity to get to know themselves. When you know who you are at your core, you have somewhere to go back to when the tough times come.” – Shonogh Pilgrim, Headteacher, Ansford Academy, UK

You are probably familiar with personality insights systems or frameworks. You may have answered a personality quiz online, or taken part in a deeper analysis during professional training or teambuilding. Personality frameworks have been around for centuries. In fact Hippocrates came up with the first around 400 BC. 

With wellbeing at the top of the agenda for schools, now is the perfect moment for educators to look more closely at personality styles. 

A glimpse into a student’s unique mix of styles can provide the teacher with insights not only into their learning preferences at that point in their development, but also the rationale behind their thinking, communication and behaviour. Such insights can have a significant impact upon student wellbeing and help to improve relationships both in and outside the classroom.
