Real Warriors

Real Warriors

The Real Warriors Campaign is a multimedia public awareness campaign designed to encourage help-seeking behavior among service members, veterans and military families coping with invisible wounds. Launched by the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) in 2009, the campaign is an integral part of the Defense Department’s overall effort to encourage warriors and families to seek appropriate care and support for psychological health concerns.
To reach the broadest audience possible, the campaign features a variety of strategies including outreach and partnerships, print materials, media outreach, an interactive website, mobile website and social media. The campaign features stories of real service members who reached out for psychological support or care with successful outcomes, including learning coping skills, maintaining their security clearance and continuing to succeed in their military or civilian careers. These Real Warriors are proving through example that reaching out is a sign of strength that benefits the entire military community.
In addition, the campaign encourages use of the DCoE Outreach Center, a 24/7 call center staffed by health resource consultants to provide confidential answers, tools, tips and resources about psychological health and traumatic brain injury.

Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS-II)

kiersy comThe Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS-II) is a self-administered personality test which is used by such companies as Coca-Cola, AT & T, and the United States Air Force.  While related in theory to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment, there are differences, especially in the final descriptions of each subset of each assessment.  This assessment was created by Dr. David Keirsey.

The KTS-II is offered on site in English, French, German, Spanish (Internationally), and Latin American Spanish.  There are 70 questions, with 2 answers on each question.  A person can enter a password to return and keep their results secure and see them in the future if needed, which may be beneficial if they are interested in a personality assessment.

You can become a KTS-II administrator, or become certified as well.  Or just for yourself, take the assessment, and see how you score.  It is well worth the time!
