    Did you know that the way we see ourselves is not usually the way others see us? Did you know that the way others see (or perceive) us will determine the way they RECEIVE us? That’s right! Even if their perception is wrong, they will decide whether or not they like you based on their perception. In other words, their perception IS reality – at least to them! This is why it is so important to understand how others perceive us because it will determine how they receive us! Here are some examples of how each of the personalities might be perceived:

    “D” types are actually – determined, decisive doers who can make quick decisions! They are natural leaders who get more accomplished in the shortest amount of time than any other personality type.

    “D” types may be PERCEIVED as bossy, pushy people who are rude and love to interrupt.

    “I” types are actually – outgoing, fun loving people that light up the room just by walking in! They are great at persuading and motivating others.

    “I” types may be PERCEIVED as flaky, irresponsible people who aren’t reliable and rarely tell the truth.

    “S” types are actually – caring, loving listeners who always have time for others. They would rather listen and support others than be “center stage”.

    “S” types may be PERCEIVED as weak, intimidated people who can never make a decision.

    “C” types are actually – Knowledgeable, organized thinkers who analyze carefully before making a decision. The love learning and value perfection.

    “C” types may be PERCEIVED as stuffy, judgmental people who never like to have any fun.

    As you can see, they way we actually are can be very different from the way we are perceived! It is important to understand that sometimes we need to change people’s perception of us so that we can change their reception of us!

    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!

    Getting Along With The Supportive “S” Personality in DiSC Part 2 

    In my most recent blog, I gave you 4 tips for getting along with the supportive “S” personality type. This is part 2 of the same topic!

    5. “S” types are never in a hurry. If you try to rush them – bad things happen! To work around this, always give the “S” types extra time. If you need to leave the house at 5pm for example – it’s best to tell them 4:45 instead of 5:00pm. This way you’ll still be “on time” without having to rush them!

    6. “S” types are information gatherers. They want to know as much as they can about a particular topic – but they don’t like details to be complex. Give them easy to understand information and you’ll have a happy “S” type!

    7. “S” types can get overwhelmed by their own emotions. Sometimes they are so overwhelmed, they need help getting to the root of the problem. The best way to help them is to repeat their concerns back to them in the form of a question. For example, if they say “I have a headache” – instead of suggesting they take some aspirin, you would say “Oh, you have a headache?” and then wait for their response. The response is usually another concern so you will repeat the process of saying it back to them in a question. After you do this three or four times, you’ll get to what is really causing them stress.

    8. “S” types want to feel appreciated. Let them know how much they mean to you and how much you enjoy spending time with them. This will make them feel “on top of the world” and you’ll have a great relationship with this “S” type!

    I hope you were able to get some great tips on interacting with an “S” type! In my next blog – I’ll cover the “D” personality type!

    Getting Along With The Supportive “S” Personality in DiSC 

    Do you have an “S” type in your life? It’s pretty much a guarantee that all of us do! Here’s some advice to improve your relationship with them and give them the “warm fuzzy” feelings they enjoy! Stay tuned for my next post on “S” types – this is just part 1!

    1. Use “S” words: Just like all other personality types, “S” types have words that they respond best to. Their words do not involve status and prestige, however. This personality type is motivated by safety and security. Here are some words that attract them: relaxing, easy-to-use, soothing, time-saving, effortless, and family friendly. You should also use the word “we” often when dealing with an “S” personality type. This will satisfy their deep desire to be “part of something”. They respond better when they feel included.

    2. Go with the known, not the new: The tried, the true, the stable, the proven. Those are things that make an “S” personality type feel comfortable. Because they are more comfortable with the known and expected, don’t stress the “new” of things. Also, if there’s a problem that you need to talk to an “S” personality type about, it’s best if you also go in with the solution – remember “safety and security”.

    3. Ask about family: If you really want to score major points with the “S” personality types, ask about their family. They will be so happy that you took the time to care about them. Always start your conversations with a personal comment.

    4. Use the word “feel”: “S” personality types are emotional people that make decisions based on their emotions. Therefore, it is better to ask them “How do you feel?” instead of “What do you think?” when you are looking for their input or a decision.

    My next post will feature more tips for getting along with the supportive “S” personality types!

    How We Make our "To Do" Lists Differently Based on OUR DISC Personality Type! 

    As a “D” or Dominant personality type, I love to make lists. The purpose of the list is to check off the list! Sometimes a “D” personality type will make a list of things they have already accomplished just so they can check them off! Although all personality types may make a list, the lists will look different depending on their most dominant personality. For example, since “D” and “I” types are bottom line communicators – they make lists that are, well, bottom line. For example, if they  need to go to get groceries, pick up the dry cleaning, organize the bathroom drawer, and take their children to gymnastics – their list would read something like this:

    groceries

    dry cleaning

    drawer

    gymnastics – 6:00

     

    This list would look very different if it were written by an “S” or “C” type. Their list would look more like this:

     

    go to grocery store

    pick up dry cleaning at Morton’s Dry Cleaners

    organize the bathroom drawer so items fit in drawer properly

    take kids to gymnastics at 6pm

     

    Keep in mind, if it was an “I” personality type that made the list – they will probably lose it before anything on the list is even completed! I believe that it is perfectly acceptable to make the list either way – as long as you remember what you are supposed to do. Most “S” or “C” types that were looking at a “D” and “I” type’s list would have no idea what it meant went it read “drawer”. They would think “Why in the world did I write drawer”? This is why they make complete lists. It is more efficient for them to take a few extra seconds to write a detailed list now than to try to figure out what they meant later.

    This is just one of the many ways that our DISC personality types are different!
