  • Extroverts (D & I) say what they mean and they often take the initiative. They are direct in their approach.
  • Introverts (C & S) however, would rather not talk, they prefer to listen. They focus their energy on their inner world. Their attitude is often hesitant. Their approach is therefore indirect.
  • Controlling people (D & C) focus on things and achieve results. Their actions are rational and focused on controlling the environment.
  • Relating people (S & I) focus on relationships with others. They are more driven by their emotions.

In Q4 Personal Style  (DISC) Analysis, we describe the predictable behaviour of people in 16 different behavioural styles. These behaviour styles work as filters that affect how we behave, how we interpret others' behaviour and how we look at others.

A style is neither right nor wrong. Each style has strengths and challenges depending on the context. If the circumstances are favourable, we will adjust our behaviour according to the role we play. When the conditions are not optimal, we tend to unconsciously react according to our primary style.
