Complementary Personality Blends Using DISC

We are all our own unique combination of the four personality types D,I,S and C. About 80 percent of us are dominant in two of the four. It other words, you have 2 types that you operate in most of the time. We call this your “blend”. There are natural blends, complementary blends, and opposite blends. This article will discuss the complementary blends. I will cover the other blends in other posts. Here is a brief description of complementary blends:

If you are a D/C or a C/D, this is called a complementary blend. They have some things in common and some things that are very different.  If you have this blend you typically make a great business leader since you have both the drive to achieve (D) and the ability to deal with details (C). Below is a list of several  characteristics these two have in common:

 

Being task oriented

Being more private in nature with their feelings

Liking to make plans

Being involved with projects

Liking things to have a process

Making decisions based on logic

 

Here is a list of differences between the D and the C types:

D is outgoing while C is more reserved

D believes in quantity while C believes in quality

D prefers the bottom line while C prefers details and information

D types think about the now while C types think about the future

D types have moods that change quickly while C types have moods that change more slowly

D types prefer to move quickly while C types prefer to move slowly

D types are multi-tasked while C types prefer to work on one or two projects at a time

D types are fast starters while C types are strong finishers

 

If you are an I/S or a S/I, this is also a complementary blend. These blends also have some things in common and some which are different. If you are this blend then you are normally great when it comes to dealing with people! Here are several other characteristics these two have in common:

Being people oriented

Sharing emotions easily

Showing interest in others

Developing relationships

Spending time with others

Making decisions based on feelings
