STOP WHEN YOU SEE RED

Excerpts from 5-Star Reviews/Endorsements


Ms. Welsh defines four perceptual styles as being Audio, Visual, Feeler, and Wholistics.  She supplies the reader through a detailed self-appraisal and personal profile the opportunity to find where they stand among the primary Perceptions. After understanding the perceptual style, she continues with Limiting Tendencies.  She identifies these as anger, indignation, frustration and resentment. Through understanding these limitations and accepting the fact that you can only change you – you can learn how to live a more fruitful and satisfying life.  I love to “think out loud” and I found her section on Wholistics very enlightening.  I have to say it gave me a moment of utter clarity.


This book is principally enlightening because the author bares her soul which is a marvelous motivator to the reader.  By sharing her private life and explaining her transformation in her forties, she gives the book a feel of communicating directly with her. It takes guts to come clean in your own life and this is one reason the book is so effective.  Along with her life experiences, she shares experiences from her workshops and qualitative studies.  Of particular need is the understanding of children making this a must read for every parent.  Her examination of how to be “an encouraging rather than discouraging parent” is excellent.


It is so true that nothing can possibly change in your life until you change and Ms. Welsh lays out the tools to succeed in a transformation to help you enjoy more radiant relationships.  This book will add a high-quality injection of positive power to any life.  Ms. Welsh offers a healing brew dispensing necessary and helpful advice in a clear and easy to understand format giving everyone a potential to reshape their life.

"It's possible to have a richly satisfying life within your present circumstances." Carol Welsh, author of Stop When You See Red.  According to Carol Welsh, everyone is born with Empowering Tendencies, which lead us to take positive action and help us feel better about ourselves. We also have Limiting Tendencies, which cause us to react, often negatively, to others and events, and therefore leave us feeling tired or out-of-control.

How we perceive the world around us affects our responses. In Stop When You See Red, the author identifies and defines four perceptual styles: Audio, Visual, Feeler and Wholistic. A simple self-appraisal leads to great personal insight by helping readers identify their primary Perception, along with their current Empowering and Limiting Tendencies.

The author's comprehensive descriptions of each perception will help readers recognize others' primary perceptions, and thus enable them to improve relationships with adults. She also advises how to adapt teaching/disciplinary styles for children of each perceptual style.

Have you noticed certain people or situations press your hot buttons? The Shrinking Comfort Zone Profile will help readers identify which work, home and personal health stressors steal their security and control. Once you recognize them, if you're willing to alter your perception and react positively, you can enlarge your comfort zone. All you have to do is avoid the Brick Wall.

Sometimes the answers we seek are right in front of our noses, but we need someone to help us open our eyes. Carol Welsh's Stop When You See Red is like a cup of strong coffee. Readers who possess an open mind and determination will find this guide to personal growth insightful. Though the author details how to calculate scores, those who wish to receive a free interpretation can submit their scores to the author's website. Encourage your family, friends and coworkers to take the self-appraisal or sit back and observe their behavioral styles. You might be amazed at how quickly you can improve your relationships. I certainly was.

I loved this book and the paradigm that people perceive through their senses. I liked Carol Welsh's supportive tone and heartwarming anecdotes. As a scientist I liked the quantitative aspect of self-evaluation and the strive towards balance. Everything fits so well together. It really heightened my sense of perception. Julia Heinrich, PhD.

(Carols) book is designed as a handbook for people to use in their personal world of relationships. Used well, this material could enable people to solve relationship problems long before they escalate into serious, disruptive patterns. Ann Norwood -- Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Other books and workshops I've experienced on personality types cannot begin to compare with Carols book. It's extremely comprehensive yet easy to understand. I immediately started utilizing this information and my confidence soared. Wish I had read this 30 years ago. Barbara Thompson, MS, Author/Artist/Musician/Former Teacher.
