Workshop benefits students by teaching them how their personalities factor in classroom environments

Thirteen McNair Scholars and over 20 Upward Bound students from the University of Wisconsin-Superior partnered together with the 148th Fighter Wing to learn about their personality styles.

The high school and college students worked through a series of questions, pictures and descriptions to find the personality “color” that best matched them and then learned about how those styles influence how they work, think and interact with other people as well as how they are motivated.

“It’s very valuable to know who you are,” said Chaplin Darrell Kyle of the 148th Fighter Wing. “It impacts what you do and what you do not do.”

As students interacted with each other through various activities led by the 148th Fighter Wing, they also discovered how their personalities not only describe them but also influence their decisions and career paths.

“The students are all learning about their personality styles and how their personalities might come into play in the college or graduate school classroom environment,” said Dr. Marsha Lue, director of the McNair Scholars Program at UW-Superior. “What they learn can also be used for careers, family and friends – how they interact with people and how they react to others when others have opposite personalities. The learn how to work with folks very different from themselves.”

This is the second year that the 148th Fighter Wing has partnered with the McNair Scholars, a graduate school preparation program, and Upward Bound, a college readiness program, to facilitate the 4 Lenses personality workshop.
