The Case Background
A couple consulted Meheck for their 17 year old child. The client was studying at a renowned Institute of Technology and Sciences in the 2nd year. The boy was a brilliant student, topper throughout school years and chose to study Engineering by free will.
Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Analysis (DMIA) Service Availed
DMI Analysis Results
The analysis presented a true picture of the student.
A complete behavioural study with learning styles and communication styles as well as detailed strength and weakness chart and career recommendations list was shared with parents of the client.
Although an intelligent person and a vivid learner with good implementation skills, the Client did not have his strengths in Technical Studies. The option of Technical Studies showed only 3 stars. Obviously the client was stressed, not enjoying his field of study.
Moreover he was analysed to be a less vocal person. Hence, he was unable to vent his feelings and share them with his parents in an appropriate manner and was going through a lot of non-performance pressure. Parents who were not from technical background were unable to understand this and tended to push the client towards academic performance often using demotivational techniques.
This pushed the client into a more quiet zone with minimal need based communication with parents.
The client thus resorted to gaming and addiction to social media (Observation by Parents – Info provided halfway during the counselling session).
Although the lesser of the known addictions (food/smoke/drugs) but social media addiction and gaming addiction are equally difficult to wean.
This further reduced the clients academic productivity resulting in further pressure from peer and parents. A vicious circle of stress and non performance was thus formed.
Remedial Tips and Techniques / Guidance
Engineering Studies was a 3 star area, the best option would be to shift educational goals and career path. But the client was not willing to change his career path as he did not wish to waste a year. Hence Meheck suggested various tips and techniques suited to his learning style so as to aid him in his stressful academic years.
Parents were also guided so as to understand what were the stress creators in their childs life. Since client did not have many close friends, which was evident in the analysis, he would look forward to company from the father. The father was guided to go for a morning walk or a sport of mutual choice with the client which was a stress busting activity for the client as well as a bonding time with parent and child.
Also Meheck suggested a shift to Management Studies post the Bachelors in Engineering since it was a 5 star recommendation for the Client. A second consultation was scheduled with the client when he was 18 years of age to give him a personal counselling guidance.
