FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DOES MYACTUALITY WORK?
MyActuality begins with an interactive process to identify emotional patterns that were handed down and formed in the first ten years of your life. Though largely outside of your awareness, these patterns tend to influence your choices and actions in most aspects of your life, both personal and professional.

Once you have completed MyActuality, you can continue to learn through videos, webinars, and other resources at our site about how to resolve a multitude of problems including managing burnout, finding direction in your career, breaking out of limiting patterns in relationships, and more.
WHAT IS THE MYACTUALITY PROCESS?
MyActuality was developed in 1988 by Paul Brenner, M.D., Ph.D., as described in his book Seeing Your Life Through New Eyes. Dr. Brenner and those that he has trained in the process have applied MyActuality with thousands of clients over the past three decades.
WHAT MAKES MYACTUALITY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PERSONALITY TESTS?  
The value of assessments/personality tests is often to help individuals become better at managing interpersonal problems, like getting along with others, and intrapersonal problems, like increasing self-confidence. We believe that an understanding of the emotional patterns that govern the way we operate offers the best opportunity for true and lasting change. We have found that we can use the individual’s perception of his/her childhood experiences to identify these patterns.

MyActuality provides individuals the best experience for lasting change due to three main differences from other personality tests: 

1. It gets personal: MyActuality does not try to show you who you are, but rather why you are that person. By finding the origin of your behavioral patterns, you can most effectively address the root of what is causing you dissatisfaction and create a system for growth.

2. It doesn’t put you in a box: Most personality tests categorize you in a group of 4 or 16 personality types. MyActuality has over 300 million unique combinations and pathways.

3. It’s immersive: While other assessments give you text documents, MyActuality uses an interactive video-guided platform to help faciliate a deeper and more meaningful connection with the information learned.
HOW WILL KNOWING MY EMOTIONAL PATTERNS HELP ME?
Self-awareness offers choice. Armed with information from MyActuality, you can learn to use the process in your day to day life to stop behaviors that interfere with your success, and to meet unmet needs that allow you to achieve your potential.  
CAN I USE MYACTUALITY WITH TEAMS?
The MyActuality experience found here is intended for individual use. However, the process has been used extensively in business by Robert Petrello for Praxis Leadership, primarily for team-building, leadership, and executive coaching in Fortune 500 companies. For team or organizational use, please contact us or visit www.praxisleadership.co.  
CAN ANYONE TAKE MYACTUALITY?
MyActuality is intended for use by individuals 16 years of age and older. Maturity and emotional intelligence varies from individual to individual; however, we have found that reflecting upon one’s childhood can be especially difficult for younger users.
DOES MYACTUALITY STEREOTYPE PEOPLE?
No. MyActuality empowers individuals by aiding them in their journey for self-discovery. Information found in MyActuality is  based off of years of experience and is designed to help you with the naturally difficult task of self-observation.
SHOULD I CHOOSE A CAREER BASED ON MYACTUALITY?
Not solely on your MyActuality answers. MyActuality will help you understand your strengths and learn what you emotionally need the most. However, choosing a career involves a myriad of factors not directly addressed in MyActuality. For help with understanding how MyActuality may influence career behaviors or decisions, please contact us.
