You have chosen to help Mary by working with him to take the BOTS DISC profile assessment. We want to commend you for this desire and for spending this time with Mary. Use this opportunity to learn new things about him and his personality.
Understanding is what he needs first from you. You have given Mary the freedom to make selections in the BOTS assessment, and now this report is providing some feedback for you to review.
We have endeavored to develop an assessment tool using pictures and stories that allows us to determine the personality blend of the children ages 4-12. Overall, we have found that the results are usually accurate, but we fully recognize that there is room for adjustments. Naturally, the younger a student is, the less objective and predictable responses may be.
We recommend that you view the results of this report as a 'snapshot' of Mary's personality. Realize that results can vary to some degree, so these results are not to be considered conclusive. We certainly believe that these results are fairly accurate and provide a good starting point for you to approach Mary in a more effective way.
The entire experience is a learning tool for both of you. We hope you benefit from spending time trying to understand Mary. Perhaps you will think more deeply about what motivates him to behave the way he does.
Mary's self-awareness is growing as he grows, so you want to encourage that growth while also allowing for his age and maturity level. If Mary happened to makes choices in the assessment that seem to indicate who he would LIKE to be rather than who you think he REALLY IS, then it could mean that Mary needs your encouragement to recognize, accept and appreciate how special he is. In that case, simply focus on affirming him as a special young person with value and worth to you and to others and himself. Just like you, we want Mary to grow to become all that he is meant to be. Use this opportunity to help your relationship be even more open and honest.
We hope you enjoy this great opportunity to learn to relate better with Mary!

Mary, have you ever thought about what you are good at? Strengths are the part of your personality that help you to do certain things very well. When you know what your strengths are, it is easier for you to think of things to do and ways to help. It is a wonderful thing to have strengths, but it is even better to use your strengths to help someone else.
People are affected by their feelings. Emotions can affect how we do things, so take extra care when dealing with sensitive people.
Others may have ideas or suggestions that may work out good for you. Consider what others have to say. Together with your ideas, you can often do more or do a better job at something.
You are always full of energy and are able to make quick decisions. Not everyone can act as quickly as you do. Slow down and have patience with those who need a little more time.
Take time to be warm and friendly to people. It's nice to be important, but it is more important to be nice.
