To become or not to become. LO24355

Dear all,

Gavin's talk over the instruments to know the profiles of people reminded
me of the Body Type Test that I came across in

I believe that it is inconclusive to know people only by their
psychologoical frames. Knowing something about their bodies make so much

I also believe that HR professionals need to know about the mind body
connections too to help people become effective.
