    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

    Why Does Our DISC Personality Type Change? 

    Have you ever wondered why our personality types can change? I often hear people say “Well I am a ____ personality type now, but I used to be a ____ personality type. Most of us have a change in our personality type, at least slightly, over our lifetime. There are three factors that influence your personality type. The first is our experiences. Maybe you were born an “I” personality type, but you were told to be quiet your entire childhood. The whole “kids are to be seen, not heard” mentality. Eventually you might become more of an “S” personality type. Secondly, our environment affects our personality type. For example, a “D” personality type who lives in New York City is probably going to be more aggressive than a “D” personality type that lives in the Bahamas. Out of necessity they have adapted to their environment. Last, our culture affects our personality type. If you are a woman in North America and you are a “D” type, your “D” personality type will likely be much more noticeable than a woman with the same personality type that was raised in many other Countries. That is because in several Countries, it is not acceptable for a female to be aggressive or the leader. If you are a “D” personality type and a female, your “D”ness would be more subdued because of this. It is important to remember that you are not just one personality type. You are actually a blend of all four types using the DiSC model of human behavior. Your blend however will usually change over your lifetime due to the three factors mentioned above. Normally, it takes quite some time for our personality type to change to any significant degree. I have, however, observed people who have had a traumatic event take place in their life and their personality changed instantly. Whatever your personality type, remember that you have great strengths and you need to let your personality shine!

      You are so right Angel. When I first joined EXIT Realty I had very little “D” in my personality profile. As my role as a regional owner for EXIT progressed, sales became a major portion of my job for the first time in my life. Many of the people I was dealing with on a daily basis were “D” personalities. As a matter of survival I had to develop more of the “D” personality in my own personality profile. Thanks for the great insight!
