Tips Tuesdays DiSC Series – 16 of 21: Personalities are a Blend

Personalities are a Blend: Learn to communicate and interact effectively with Magnovo’s Tips Tuesdays DiSC Series

Now at this point in the series what I want to do is give you a few thoughts. One of the first is understand that you are not just one — not just a D or an I.

We may have a primary, like a D but you also have secondary influence.We are typically a ‘blend’ with the influence of a C or an I. Our style may change due to demands. Every style is very gifted, valuable and capable of leading!

It’s important to understand we may ‘ fall back’ on our dominant personality style when stressed. And any strength if overused can become a weakness.

For example, even though a D is good at making quick decisions — an impulsive decision may not be the best in every situation.

An I can be so excited about a project and it can be the wrong time — it’s time to get things done.

The C can be overly critical and the S can be too worried about the emotional side.

We need to balance and complement each other as a team. Coming together as one unit to share our strengths and minimize weakness — is the best way to work as a team!
