In this Episode:

Stress affects everyone and unmanaged stress can impact your quality of life, and ultimately your health. In today’s interview, Rob Toomey, the President of TypeCoach walks us through identifying our stress “triggers” through the lens of personality type. He discusses how to navigate your stress response based on your four letter type code and your dominant function. To follow along, be sure to check out the chart below. Also, check out the show notes at

He is also giving away access to his personality type products which is a $100 value!  This offer is only for a limited time.  It takes you deep into type and helps you better understand your strengths and how to communicate with other types.  There is an entire chart to help you do this and better understand the people in your lives.  Details on how to access this freebie are below in the show notes.

Dominant Function:

T= Thinking
F= Feeling
N= Intuition
S= Sensing

In the “Yellow Zone” of “Serious” stress – The Dominant Function gets intensified.

There are two things that happen when under stress – we go into the Yellow Zone — a heightening of that dominant preference.  Ex, dominant feelers become more aware of their sensitive state.  This behavior is consistent across cultures and ages.

In the “RED Zone” people lose touch with themselves and lose touch with their dominant function.   Hopefully, this doesn’t happen more than once a year.

Rob says that when people are stressed out, they behave uncharacteristically in their relationships. This behavior can be seen in a professional context as well. You can’t rationalize with them when they are in this place.

Another helpful slide referenced in the show:

Rob has trained over 30,000 people on type, and his online platform has trained another 100,000. I don’t know anyone more knowledgable on the subject and as great of a teacher. Rob is excellent at breaking things down in an easy way to understand.
