You have chosen to help Joe 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 Joe. Use this opportunity to learn new things about him and his personality.
Understanding is what he needs first from you. You have given Joe 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 Joe'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 Joe 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 Joe. Perhaps you will think more deeply about what motivates him to behave the way he does.
Joe'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 Joe 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 Joe 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 Joe 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 Joe!

Something to think about ...
Joe, 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.
Being careful and sensitive makes you who you are. You think about something a lot before you get going. Sometimes the best thing to do is to just get started.
Let others know what you are feeling. They will be able to understand you better.
Rather than trying to figure out everything by yourself, get some help. Team up with someone you trust, and they will be happy to help you
Do people the favor of speaking up and being heard. You have many good thoughts and others would be happy for you to share them. This is how we learn things.
