3rd Edition, by Mary Blitzer Field and the HRDQ Development Team

Add excitement and impact to your style training with StylePlay - 12 Group Card Games. These quick, energizing games reinforce learning and build awareness in a fun, nonthreatening manner.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the four personality styles
  • Learn how the four styles interact
  • Practice interacting with those of similar and different personality styles
  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of each style


StylePlay - 12 Group Card Games and the other titles in the Style Series are based on the well-known research and personality theories of psychologists Carl Jung, William Moulton Marston, and others. Most research has identified two basic dimensions of style, which we refer to as assertiveness and expressiveness. Assertiveness is the effort a person makes to influence or control the thoughts or actions of others. Expressiveness is the effort that a person makes to control his or her emotions and feelings when relating to others. 

How it Works

Each StylePlay card displays an adjective describing a characteristic that people usually demonstrate in daily interactions. Participants can take part in 12 different card games - or the facilitator can create a new game with the StylePlay cards. Each of the games allows participants to identify preferred styles - either their own, those of other participants, or those of famous people.

StylePlay - 12 Group Card Games can be used alone, in combination with any Style Series title, and with other training products. The Facilitator Guide features a brief overview of the Style Theory that is the basis of the games and the other Style Series instruments. In addition, Debriefing Questions and Key Learning Points are provided to help facilitators draw significance and participants to gain deeper insights.

Uses for StylePlay

  • Provide stand-alone activities such as ice breakers and energizers
  • Incorporate into a learning experience on teamwork, leadership, or communication
  • Include as an introduction or follow-up to What's My Style? and all the other Style Series titles
