Has anyone else had this amusing scenario?:
I was talking to a work acquaintance that I believe is primarily I and secondarily D. I think I'm more of a C (haven't taken the profile) but made a conscious effort to inflect my voice more, make arm movement outside my body, and basically bring myself closer to his I level. (Ha! I wanted to see him "I to I." *groan*).
Meanwhile, I noticed him bring his arms in closer, speak in more reserved tones, and try to bring himself closer to a C.
We met somewhere in the middle, and stayed there ... surprisingly comfortably, for me anyway.
I'm pretty new to MT and am loving the podcasts. I'm also loving practicing the tools at work. I've been trying to notice the DISC profiles (at least the high letter) of people and change my behavior to communicate better with them. I don't consider myself good at this (yet) by any means, but the scenario I described really amused the heck out of me.
