    Opposite Personality Blends using the DISC Model of Human Behavior

    In addition to Natural Blends and Complementary Blends, which I discussed in recent posts, there are also opposite blends. Examples of opposite blends are: D/S, S/D, I/C, or C/I.

    If you are one of these blends, you were not born this way. You have conditioned, or taught yourself to be this way over a period of time. Typically this happens out of necessity. For example – maybe you were a first born child who was naturally an “S” but a tragic event caused you to have to raise your siblings. You would, out of necessity, most like become more “D” to adapt to the situation. There can be good or factors that shape and mold our personality type. Some people have so many learned personality traits that they actually show on an assessment as “LEVEL”! This is only about 1 percent of the population.

    When you are an opposite blend, this could easily create struggles within yourself and make you feel conflict. For example: if you are an I/C you may really want to go have some fun but you must do your absolute best on the current project and still meet deadline. Once I met an I/C who was playing with play dough and having a blast. As he was playing with the play dough, he was describing how it is sodium based, thus causing it to dry out quickly. This is the perfect example of an opposite blend! If you’ve ever seen the movie Patch Adams, Robin Williams plays an I/C blend in the movie.

    I hope this has helped you understand opposite personality blends. No matter what your blend, remember to always let your personality shine!

    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

     

    Here is a list of differences between the I and the S types:

    I is outgoing while S is more reserved

    I believes in quantity while S believes in quality

    I prefers the bottom line while S prefers details and information

    I types think about the now while S types think about the future

    I types have moods that change quickly while S types have moods that change more slowly

    I types prefer to move quickly while S types prefer to move slowly

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

    I types are fast starters while S types are strong finishers

It other words, you have 2 types that you operate in most of the time. We call this your “blend”. There are natural blends, complimentary blends, and opposite blends. This article will discuss the natural blends. I will cover the other blends in future posts. Here is a brief description of natural blends:

    If you are a D/I or and I/D, this is what is called a natural blend. Both types are outgoing, both types live in extremes, and both types have emotions that change very quickly. There are several other characteristics these two have in common such as:

    Talking with their hands

    Interrupting when others are talking

    Speaking very quickly

    Being quick to spend money

    Getting bored easily

    Keeping items all over their desk

    Piling items when they are going from one place to another

    Being quantity driven

    If you are an S/C or a C/S, this is also a natural blend. Both types are more reserved, both types prefer to work on one project at a time, and both types have emotions that change more slowly. There are several other characteristics these two have in common such as:

    Not jumping into things right away – taking a deeper look

    Being more thrifty in nature

    Being quality driven

    Being compassionate

    Speaking more slowly

    Using few or no hand gestures

    Gathering information

    Pausing before speaking

    Strategies for Getting Along with a “D” type using DiSC Part 2 

    In my most recent post, I listed 4 tips to help create better interactions with the “D” or Dominant personality type. Here are some more tips for getting along with the “D” types!

    5. Use words that appeal to their personality! “D” types are attracted to words that emphasize “status and prestige”. Some examples would be: great, powerful, biggest, best, bold. These words peak their interest!

    6. Don’t tell a “D” type to do something! When you tell this personality to do something, they didn’t hear what you said. What they heard is “Do you want to fight?” Instead, you can use a few strategies to create that win/win situation:

                 a. Give them choices, but let them make the decision. For example: Do you want to    go to the post office first or would you rather pick up your dry cleaning first?

                b. Issue a challenge! When you tell a “D” type they can’t do something, they most likely will do it!

    7. Don’t expect perfection! “D” types believe in quantity, not quality. They do something “good enough” then move on to the next project.

    8. Keep things moving! “D” personalities get bored very easily so move quickly! They also like to work on more than one thing at a time so keep them busy!

    Want to learn more about interacting with the different personality types? Check out my best-selling book titled: Stop Squatting With Your Spurs On! The power to read people, get what you want, and communicate without pain! You can even read a few chapters for free on my blog!

    Strategies for Getting Along with a “D” type using DiSC Part 1 

    “D” personality types are those outgoing, task oriented people who have a bottom line communication style! They can be very difficult to get along with if you don’t know how to effectively communicate with them. Here are some tips for getting along with the “D” personality type.

    1. When you are asking them for  their opinion on something, or need them to make a decision – use the word “think”. For example, “What do you think about….”. This would be instead of asking how they feel. “D” types make decisions based on logic instead of emotion. If you ask them how they feel, they will probably respond with something like “Well, I think…..”.

    2. “D” types want you to be brief, be brilliant, and be gone! Remember time is money when you are dealing with this personality type so don’t try to engage in idle chit chat unless they start the conversation.

    3. “D” types don’t like to repeat themselves so listen up the first time when they are giving you information. They also don’t want you to tell them something more than once.

    4. If there is bad news you need to tell them, let them know quickly. Don’t worry about them being upset. Oftentimes, they are going to fix the problem anyway.

    I hope this gives you some great insights into interacting with “D” personality types. I will include more strategies for interacting with a “D” personality in my next blog!
