The RISE Human Development System has been analysing children and young people for 15 years. In the early days, it analysed children of private mentoring partners, exclusively by the parents’ request, using the methodology applied in business. Personality type identifications were primarily based on parent interviews. Seeing a significant increase in demand, we began to develop the analytical background that now provides professional child-rearing input. Child psychology, generational research, sociology, social media profiling, and personality-based assessment of parents’ opinions are now able to clearly define a child’s personality, their modifications, and behavioural patterns. This can also help to identify the stress level of the child, which is a strong indicator of the child’s happiness. RISE’s youth portfolio can identify personality from the age of 4. For the youngest children, it builds a picture based on the parents’ reports and answers, comparing them to the parents’ personalities, while from the age of 10, children answer comprehensible, enjoyable test questions developed for them. RISE monitored and analysed 1,043 children over 15 years. It has continuously collected parental reports as well as educational and sports achievements to track the progress of many children. Thanks to this, we now have a solid big data analysis to make precise definitions. This observation has resulted in the book Diamond Dough Kid (Personality-based Child-rearing), which perfectly illustrates RISE’s views on child-rearing and education. For us, it is fundamental that a child has an established personality from the moment they begin to interact with the outside world. Their personality is given, and it is our responsibility as parents, teachers, and educators to accept and nurture the child’s personality to ensure that they have the most successful and happy life. We should not mould our children to our liking, nor should we allow others to mould them to their own expectations. Of course, fitting into the community and society is important, but there is a healthy limit to this, where the child does not have to lose themselves. A child is not DOUGH that we can shape to our liking at any time, but a DIAMOND that needs to be polished to shine.
With this ideology in mind, the RISE Human Development System has started working with high schools and institutions of higher education that value a young adult’s individuality and success. The cooperation with educational institutions has the following fundamental components:
- Complex analysis of students, building a successful life path
- Complex analysis of staff in educational institutions
- Benchmarking, “profiling of applicants” / “profiling of the most successful students”
- Complex development training for parents, teachers
- Workshops for children and parents who complete the assessment
