Dear Readers, We have updated the Self-PortraitTM assessment (the foundation of this book) with a name change and a few other changes, to make it even more userfriendly and relevant. The corresponding changes have not yet been made to this book, but you will see them if you choose to purchase the online version of the assessment. So to avoid confusion we are highlighting the changes here: New assessment title: Self-PortraitTM Power Traits Assessment New Disposition names: Spontaneous (previously Performing) Organized (previously Producing) Curious (previously Inventing) Supportive (previously Relating-Inspiring) Imaginative (previously Thinking-Creating) Changes to a few Talent names: 3-D Talent (previously Spatial) Self-Care Talent (previously Interactive-Self) People Talent (previously Interactive-Others) Animal Talent (previously Interactive Animals) Nature Talent (previously Interactive-Nature) These minor changes do not alter the meaning of the book's content nor the nature or results of the assessment and accompanying recommendations. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us: 805-648-1739, [email protected] Thank you for purchasing Discover Your Child's Learning Style. We hope it will bring many benefits to you and your family. Sincerely, Victoria & Mariaemma
