Is your animal Mirroring you?
Animals don’t want us to be in pain or suffer on any level: physical, spiritual, emotional or mental.
Our animals’ acute sensitivity to our feelings can translate into their own behavior or physical problems. Very often, the way they act is a reflection of our emotions and our behaviors.
Our animals often sense more than we do about our internal motivations and conflicted feelings. Because of their love and friendship for us, they want to help us feel balanced and happy. Should our feelings stay hidden or conflicted, they will often act them out, giving us an opportunity to look within ourselves and perhaps make a change for the better. PRINT is a wonderful tool that will get you digging deep!
PRINT® is one of the biggest breakthroughs for unleashing and achieving human potential in recent years.
It is the only tool that accurately reveals the root cause of why people do what they do. It gives us the understanding we need to do things in a way that makes us happy and productive. And it is proven to significantly improve individual and team performance.
It’s not enough to do your best. You must know what to do, then do your best.

PRINT® helps you understand what makes you tick! What are your strengths (Best Self)? What are your Shadow Traits (Negative, automatic and unproductive behaviors)? What sets you off (Triggers)?
You have two categories of Unconscious Motivators® that drive your actions – a Major and Minor Unconscious Motivator.
These motivations (of which there are 72 combinations) provide the foundation for Why you do what you do, say what you say, and think what you think.
The PRINT® SURVEY is designed to uncover your two Unconscious Motivators®.
Unconscious Motivators are not preferences, strengths, biases, talents, likes or dislikes. Instead, they are your deep motivations working on an unconscious level.
Your Unconscious Motivators®, your Best Self behaviors and your potential Shadow traits are collectively known as your PRINT®.
How your Unconscious Motivators play out in
in your life dictates the degree of Best Self
and Shadow qualities you display!
Knowing your Unconscious Motivators helps you understand why your Best Self shows up in some circumstances, while Shadow is the default in others.
This has something to do with the unique Triggers associated with your PRINT – people, events, or circumstances that feel like an “attack” on your Unconscious Motivators. More often than not, Triggers are not intentional – people are just being who they are. But our automatic responses are nonetheless still dangerous.
Triggers can have such a visceral effect.
It is important to know what your unique Triggers are, how to avoid them and ways to recover quickly from their impact. It is also important to know other’s Triggers.
Your animals know your triggers! Hence their behavioral issues! Do you want to dig deep and find how to grow and improve yourself while helping your animals at the same time?
Take the PRINT Survey
The PRINT® Survey is a proprietary, dynamic online instrument that identifies your PRINT.
What makes this self-assessment so accurate is no two people take the same survey!
Each new question is selected based on how you answered the previous question.
The PRINT Survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete and, since it’s available online, you can access the questions 24/7. Within seconds of completing your survey, you get an easy-to-read, 2- to 4-page PRINT write-up. This assessment is emailed and can be shared with a coach, recruiter or any other designated individual.
Your PRINT report outlines your Unconscious Motivators, revealing what you look like when these are satisfied (your Best Self) and not satisfied (your Stressed or Shadow Self).
You also receive your tailored Trigger Report. This report uncovers the environmental factors – others’ actions and situations around you – that can feel like an attack on your Unconscious Motivators and bring out your Shadow tendencies.
Obviously, you should avoid these Triggers. But, of course, you need to know what they are in order to avoid them, right?
The PRINT Survey groups your personality traits (along with the whys behind these traits) into nine categories. Each one encompasses a unique way of thinking, feeling and behaving; view of the world; and set of strengths and potential weaknesses.
The PRINT® Survey reveals your unique set of Best Self (Positive and Productive and potential shadow (negative, unproductive and automatic behaviors which are the direct results of your Unconscious Motivators® at work.
Shadow Behavior is simply a negative – and often automatic, unintentional and unconscious – response to events, people and situations.
Different people exhibit different Shadow Behaviors.
You may act defensively, resist change, manipulate others or act aggressively. Or you may be impatient, overbearing, territorial, unresponsive or have a moody style.
Whatever your Shadow Behaviors are, they are unique to your PRINT.
And they are predictable as well as preventable.
Of course, people display Shadow Behavior in varying degrees – as you might expect, the effect can be severe.
Not only does Shadow Behavior block personal performance and productivity, it also…
Triggers may be verbal or non-verbal and they may be intentional or unintentional, conscious or unconscious.
Whatever the case, Triggers produce positive and negative responses.
Positive – if you know how to manage and anticipate them…
Negative – if they come out of left field.
You have your own set of Triggers, as does everyone else, and these are based on your PRINT. Each person as a unique set of Triggers based on their own individual PRINT.
You’ve probably noticed how something that bothers you may have little impact on another person.
PRINT® helps identify the key Triggers for any given individual.
In an ideal world, Triggers wouldn’t affect you. You would live without stress in a continuous state of acceptance. You would tolerate all motives and behaviors different from yours. You would have perfect relationships … forever.
Of course, it’s unrealistic to expect this situation. Stress, pressure and demands are constants in your life. Others’ actions don’t always sit well with your way of thinking – and it affects you.
Fortunately, tools and strategies are available to avoid Triggers from getting the best of you. But before you can use them, you must become consciously aware of your Triggers.
That way you’ll understand what potential issues – and the associated emotional and physical feelings – set you off.
It’s this recognition and response that can change your potentially unproductive patterns into positive Best Self behaviors.
Behavior that brings out the best in you and others!
Being in Best Self is when you’re firing on all cylinders – the ultimate goal.
It’s when you’re fulfilling your potential.
It’s when you bring your best to work and bring out the best in others.
Best Self behaviors include being flexible, open, adaptable, encouraging, helping (without condition), assertive, responsive, loyal, detailed and attentive. Unfortunately, these are not automatic behaviors for many.
In fact, opposite behaviors, Shadow, can be more naturally occurring in high-stress situations.
