Question for all the DISC-ians:
BLUF: How do you reconcile a DISC profile with high attributes in opposite quadrants?
I received the results of my DISC profile a while ago and it pegged me as a high-I and high-C. I read through the profile summary and it's a pretty good match.
I was wondering how these two diametrically opposed personality types complement each other.
Some of the combinations make sense. I know these are over simplifications, but:
High D, High I -- "tellers"
High D, High C -- task focused
High S, High C -- listeners
High I, High S -- people focused
Any ideas? The only thing I could come up with is situation based -- use whichever dominant style is appropriate. I appreciate your insights.
In any case, the model is a great tool to use to improve communications and interactions with co-workers and customers. You don't have to understand all of the theory to use the concepts.
