Life Style Type Indicator®

The Life Style Type Indi­ca­tor® (LSTI®) is a brief self-assessment instru­ment and learn­ing resource designed to iden­tify and under­stand cur­rent per­son­al­ity, life style, types.  Tra­di­tional approaches present per­son­al­ity type as a rel­a­tively endur­ing and sta­ble set of traits that are dif­fi­cult to change.  The LSTI® is an inte­grated and holis­tic the­ory of human behav­ior and pro­vides a prac­ti­cal process to make pos­i­tive life style changes.  The LSTI® pro­vides valu­able infor­ma­tion for mak­ing life style changes that improve per­sonal well being and increase pro­duc­tiv­ity.  Accu­rate self-awareness is the first step in pos­i­tive change.  As the LSTI® helps uncover the beliefs, thoughts, and emo­tions that cause cur­rent behav­iors, par­tic­i­pants begin to see how they can make pos­i­tive and per­son­ally mean­ing­ful changes that will move them toward achiev­ing and main­tain­ing a well­ness lifestyle.  The LSTI uti­lizes the Emo­tional Learn­ing Sys­tem to help par­tic­i­pants (1) explore cur­rent behav­ior, (2) iden­tify per­son­al­ity type, (3) under­stand how emo­tions pos­i­tively influ­ence think­ing and behav­ior, (4) learn a pos­i­tive process for per­sonal change, and (5) enhance your career/life style.


The LSTI is brief, easy to admin­is­ter, and prac­ti­cal.  The LSTI is strength focused and presents a new model of healthy per­son­al­ity and pos­i­tive per­sonal change.  The LSTI model of healthy per­son­al­ity empha­sizes the impor­tance of devel­op­ing emo­tional intel­li­gence skills and is an excel­lent intro­duc­tion to EI training.

Best Prac­tice Examples

The LSTI® has been field tested by Dr. Ross Ellis and Chris Horn (Direc­tor of Human Resources, Coca Cola).  The cor­po­rate ver­sion of LSTI® was used as a self-awareness and coach­ing model.  A ver­sion of the LSTI® has been devel­oped as a model of healthy per­son­al­ity and well­ness.  Max­ine Trent (LPC, LMFT) has reviewed and field tested this LSTI® ver­sion as a pos­i­tive assess­ment and life change model for per­sonal well­ness seminars.
