    Natural 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, 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

    Extroverts Married to Introverts – What To Do?? 

    They say opposites attract, which is true – but they usually don’t finish the sentence which ends with “then opposites attack”. So can opposites really have a happy and fulfilling relationship? The answer is yes! You just need to work with each other’s personality type. Let’s say, for example, that you are an extroverted personality type married to an introverted personality type. Using the DiSC model of human behavior, this would mean you are either a “D” (Dominant) or an “I” (Inspiring) personality type married to an “S” (Supportive) or a “C” (Cautious) type. Typically, conflict occurs when there is an event that will involve socializing. The extrovert is all for having a great time and the introvert…. well…. not so much! There is a way to find a happy resolution though! Here are few suggestions:

    You can both agree, before going to the event, what time you will leave. This way the introvert will know exactly how long they will need to be sociable. They will also have something to look forward to – which is leaving!

    You could also introduce your introverted spouse to someone else who will be there that is similar to their personality type. Make sure they feel comfortable with those around them before taking off to be the life of the party. (Yes “I” types – this is you)

    Another idea is to drive separately with the understanding that the introvert can leave as soon as they are ready. This way the extrovert can stay as long as they like without the introvert having to socialize more than they want to.

    It would be easy for the extrovert to be upset with the introvert for not wanting to socialize, but it’s important to understand their personality type. While the “D” or “I” type might be invigorated by being able to interact, the “S” and “C” types are actually mentally drained by the same activity. It is not something the extroverted personality type should take personally. This is simply the way that introverted personality types are wired! Instead of focusing on the fact they aren’t extroverted like yourself, you should think about some of their strengths. Introverts are great with details, they do a great job when performing and task and much more! Just because they are not extroverted doesn’t mean something is wrong with them. They are just different from you and that is okay! Finding that happy medium that BOTH extroverts and introverts can be comfortable with is sure to make the relationship better for both people! Remember to always let your personality shine!

    The Buying Habits of Different Personality Types Using DISC 

    If you are in the sales industry it is vital for you to understand what each personality type wants when buying and how much time they need to make a decision. “D” or Dominant personality types using the DiSC model of human behavior and “I” or Inpiring personality types both make decisions based on “status and prestige”. In other words, if a famous movie star owns a home in the same neighborhood where you are showing them a home for sale – you may want to mention that. This may be all they need to hear to buy that home. They will then make sure all their friends know who their neighbor is. Maybe you sell cars and you know that a famous football player drives the same kind – that’s a nugget you might want to share with them. “S” Supportive and “C” Cautious/Contemplative personality types do not need to know about the famous movie star or the football player as this will not influence their buying decision in the least. They make decisions based on “safety and security”. These two personality types want to know about long term appreciation, good school districts, warranties, etc. They choose the home that has the most benefits for their family, both now and down the road. They choose the car with the best miles per gallon or warranty. If you don’t understand this, you naturally try to sell to someone the way you want to be “sold”. You point out things that would be important to you, but they might not matter to the buyer at all.

    Another difference in the buying tendencies is how long they take to make a decision. “D” and “I” personality types are very quick to spend money. “S” and “C” personality types are much slower to spend money. They want to do research, think about their decision, and then purchase. Some sales people, when encountering an “S” or “C” type actually mis-perceive them as buyers who are not serious. This is a huge mistake as these buyers are more loyal than “D” and “I” types!

    When working with each personality type, it is important to understand what they want to buy. For example: a “D” type wants to know that what you are showing them is the latest, the greatest, and the newest. If there are upgrades available, they want to know about them too. They will spend as much as they can afford to get the best possible product – remember “status and prestige”. “I” personality types buy based on color, trends, and uniqueness. If they were purchasing a home, for example, they might buy the home because they like the flower bed outside the home. They might even buy the home because they like the way the current owner has decorated – even if those items aren’t staying with the home. “S” and “C” types are information gatherers. With these personality types, it is best to preview the home and take notes prior to showing the property to them. Or, if they are purchasing a car or tv – talk about the reliability of the product and give them statistics. Also use numbers, graphs, and lists whenever possible. “C” types in particular would want to know what the current owner’s average utility bills are when buying a home, or what the average return rate is on a tv. If you try to rush them, they will think you are being pushy and just looking for a commission. Slow and steady wins the race with these two personality types.

    “D” and “C” personality types also make decisions based on logic. “I” and “S” types make decisions based on emotion. If you are working with a buyer who is challenging you, that would be a “D” or “C”. The great news? If they are challenging you, they are still interested! “I” and “S” types could easily change their minds as their emotions change. This sometimes makes them a little more difficult to deal with when trying to get a firm commitment.

    Why "C" Personality Types Need Validation Using DISC 

    Have you ever had someone say to you “What do you mean by that?” If so, it was probably a “C” or Cautious/Contemplative personality type. This personality type is a “four levels deep” thinker. Therefore they naturally believe that nothing is as it initially seems. Whenever someone tells them something, their first thought is “What did they mean by that?” For example: if you say to them “That’s a nice shirt you are wearing.” They begin the process of trying to figure out what you REALLY meant. It would play out something like this in their mind:

    “What did he/she mean by that? Do they want something from me? Are they making fun of me? Did they not like my shirt yesterday?”

    To you, it may simply means “nice shirt”, but to a “C” personality type it is hard for them to believe that you really meant exactly what you said!

    So why is it important to understand this about the “C” personality type? When we don’t understand our differences based on our personality type, we sometimes assume that their actions are against us. Let’s say that you are married to a “C” personality type and you give them information. They will probably verify what you said with a third party or source. This could easily upset you if you don’t understand the “why” behind their actions. You may respond to the “C” with something like “Do you think I am stupid? Why do you need to ask someone else if what I said is correct”? The reality is that it had nothing to do with you. It was FOR themselves. It is the way they are wired. You should not be offended by this, but rather appreciate that they think enough of the information to take the time to validate it. Hopefully this will give you a better understanding of our detailed “C” personality types. They are great at many things and everyone needs a “C” personality type in their life! Remember to let your personality shine!

    Slow Down With “S” and “C” Personality Types! 

    Remember when you are dealing with an “S” or a “C” personality type, based on the DISC Personality assessment system that they need time to process the information you gave them before responding. Often times, the “D” or “I” types assume that the “S” or “C” types are not serious buyers or seller because they don’t take action quickly! This is far from the truth! They need time to process the information give and make the best decision. They don’t jump into things quickly. The great news is that they are the most loyal customers of all – you just first have to get them! When working with them acknowledge that you know they need time to review the information you have given them and find out when they would like for you to follow up with them. They will appreciate you realizing how they are most comfortable doing business and before you know it, you’ll have a customer for life!

    C Type Personalities and Their Need For Validation! 

    You know those people in your life who don’t believe anything you say without having to verify it through someone else first? They are most likely a “C” type personality! The letter “C” stands for cautious in the DISC personality assessment system. This personality type is a four levels deep thinker. Whenever someone is talking to them, they are thinking “I know what you are saying, but what do you mean?” To this type it can’t be as simple as what you say being what you actually mean. They are always looking for the “real meaning” or the “deeper truth”. If you don’t understand this personality type, you may become annoyed or offended by this action which is often the case when someone that is a different personality type from ourselves does something we don’t understand or don’t agree with. You can be rest assured that their need to verify information probably has nothing to do with you. Instead, it is just part of their personality type! It’s the way they are “wired”! You can learn more about our different personality types in my best selling book titled “Stop Squatting With Your Spurs On!” available on my website or Amazon.com.

    Why We Have Traits From All Personality Types! 

    Often times people are confused because even though they are dominant in one personality type, they exhibit traits of another type. Remember that noone is all ONE personality type. You are a blend of all four types. In fact, some people test “level” which means they are almost even in all four. It is completely normal to be dominant in one type, yet have a “thing” that you do in the other types. For example, I’m am normally a high D/I blend. My “C thing” is that I am a bit germphobic. I don’t like touching ketchup and salt containers in restaurants, or escalators rails, etc. I just think of all the millions of people who have touched them before me and I cringe. This is not a D or I trait, but rather my C “thing”. This is the way it should be since we are a blend of all four personality types. 80% of us are dominant in two of the four types as indicated in my D/I blend mentioned above. The key is to recognize someone’s dominant personality blend so you can best predict what they need from you to create those win/win situations that you desire!

    Why an “S” type Personality might appear to be a “D” type! 

    Have you ever observed an “S” type personality acting like a “D”? Well, there are a few reasons this can occur. First, if an “S” type feels that some great injustice has occurred, that someone has been wronged, or that someone is being rude – it is possible they will respond with boldness. This can make them appear to be a high “D” type. Another time that an “S” often seems to be more “D” is in their work environment. This personality type typically specializes in a particular field and that show confidence in that one area since they have studied it for so long. Those observing them from the outside may observe their confidence and mistake it for a “D” type personality. This is why it is important to develop patterns of behavior and not just observe one thing about a person and assume what their personality type is. I talk about this in my Best Selling book – Stop Squatting With Your Spurs On! I definitely recommend reading it! It will give you the tools to accurately read most people in just 60 seconds – or maybe less!
