Diversity on a deeper level?

I've been asked to put on a diversity presentation/workshop at my workplace on "underlying" diversity--not race, religion or age but different ways people think and communicate. Where do I start?

My manager has asked us to put on a workshop or diversity event that won't focus on the obvious differences but will raise awareness of the underlying differences in how people perceive, think, and communicate.
I think I see what he's getting at, but I have no idea how to start or how to present this information without focusing on the less subtle differences.
Differences that come to mind are: shy/outgoing, internally/externally motivated, curious/reserved, passive/aggressive, entitled/gracious, self-affirming/self-doubting...
Any books, websites, documentaries, other resources or keywords appreciated.
