  16. Areas of Application – PDA Solutions


  18. William M. Marston (1893 - 1947) Psychologist and inventor, he developedthe “Theory of Personality” whichisdescribed in hisbook“Emotions of Normal People” (1928). It describes theunderlyingprinciples of thePDA database: “Behavior is a function of a person in response to their perception of their environment”.

  19. William M. Marston In other words... each one of us will respond to a particular situation according to how we perceive, understand or interpret it. For the development of the “Theory of the Personality Structure”, described and developed in his book “Emotions of Normal People”, Marston bases it on various theories and concepts:

  20. Among his inventions...


  22. Perception We know that Perception is a deep psychological process, related and mixed with our history, our experiences, our memories, our present situation, that is… associated with our “Self”.... Perception is the way we receive, individualize, and interpret the world around us.

  23. Perception is formed by …

  24. Perception is formed by … Howmany “E”s do yousee? • “.. The best structure will not guarantee results or performance. But the wrong structure is a guarantee for failure”.. • Peter Druker

  25. Perception is formed by … Howmany “E”s do yousee? • “.. The best structure will not guarantee results or performance. But the wrong structure is a guarantee for failure”.. • Peter Druker

  27. “Perception” is not an objective reality; people tend to create their own reality. Conclusion

  28. Self-Concept Theory IDEAS ABOUT OURSELVES

  29. Our idea of who we are School Parents Relatives Colleagues I am … I can … I should … I could … etc.

  30. Self-Concept Theory From this basis, Marston stated that: “Individual Behavior” is determined, in part, by the interaction between the self-concept and the permanent adjustments or modifications made in response to the demands of their environment…

  31. Therefore, the purpose of “Human Behavior” is to... Self-Concept Theory The SELF-CONCEPT

  32. Self-Concept Theory ... consequently people will tend to behave consistently with what they believe... At PDA we are saying

  33. Self-Consistency Theory “People will accept and assimilate those ideas that are consistent with what they believe and they will reject ideasthat are inconsistent with what they believe”

  34. Self-Consistency Theory • “The mind works as an unit, an organized system of ideas”. • All ideas belonging to the system must be consistent with each other.


  36. Semantics • Study of: • Language • The use of Words

  37. Concepts of Semantic

  38. Concepts of Semantic • Through his studies Marston concluded that the interpretation that each person gives to each of the words is associated to how they perceive them… and as we have already seen: every person perceives according to their “self concept”. • This means that according to their “self concept”, each person would give positive or negative connotations - different in each case - to every word perceived ...

  39. The birth of the tool… • Marston developed the instrument to understand and analyze the “SELF CONCEPT”, and predict a person’s behavioral profile, the “natural behavior profile”

  40. The birth of the tool … According to the words selected by the assessed individual, the amount of words selected and the hundreds of millions of possible combinations, the “Behavioral Profile Chart” is obtained which can identify, describe and predict the Natural Behavior of the person. Two identical lists of 86 “key” words, for the person to complete the form independently and spontaneously, selecting or rejecting each word according to their own perception of each..
