Why are people doing the stuff they do? Does my husband work with detail to make me suffer or will perfection be achieved? Is there anything much more important for me than to look at the details, when my son comes home from school after the events all passed to annoy me? In our preferred behavioural approach, we find the solution partly.
One behaviour model that seeks to explain this is called DISC. DISC. Four types of people are defined in the DISC model.
“D” is the dominant form. Being a style of “D,” I found myself out of my car for direct traffic on more than one occasion. A individual with this style is characteristic of managing circumstances (and people). The “D” individual acts rapidly, but rapid decisions trigger problems sometimes.Recently, after thinking that I have learned enough of the call, I have deleted a voice mail message from a customer only later to discover that at the end of the message a custom number is left.
“I” is inspired by this style. These people are far more people-centered than tasks. There is a persuasive communicator, the most expressive of all four types. Alway, because of the very complete calendar and wide variety of personal interests, the optimistic, influencing style may have problems with personal organization. My son is an incredibly powerful “I” type, and in any case he always points to the positive. Once he comes home with a spelling test that pronounced wrongly thirteen words. I washed my eye on the exam, which his instructor had found telling me to call her. He pulled my knee and said, “That was a fantastic attempt, Mom, do not worry.”
Type “S” is the style of stability. This style is very connected, but more reserved than the “I.” The people of the “S” are very faithful, familiar, and systematic organisers. They are the most evident team-oriented of all four types and often concern themselves with how decisions and changes impact others.My mom is in her style with a lot of “S.” She has the most organised drawers and closets I’ve ever seen in her house, and her albums contain her photos! She has a cabinet with all her spices in her kitchen and every bottle has a top to be quickly identified. In comparison, my closets seem to have survived a small earthquake, and my photos have been stored in a variety of boxes and bags in my entire house.
The “C” style is the awareness style. A individual who draws on this behavioural approach has great interest in precision, consistency and correctness. The following procedures and regulations are most concerned with this type. The ‘C’ style is typically highly analytical, task-based, and reserved. Whilst the ‘D’ and the ‘C’ are both task-oriented, the ‘D’ needs performance, but the ‘C’ wants to do it properly. My husband has a really good “C” style and he (thankfully) balances books to the penny – he was known to spend several hours searching for a few cents, which don’t add up. Do I? I just close my account and open another with another bank, When’s stuff gets really wrong with my chequebook. Fortunately, there is always a new bank in the city with whom to do business with all the fusions in this sector.
But who’s right about life? Of course, we all know that if there were just stuff like the entire universe, everything would be okay, right? But because of these gaps, do we not need each other? Do not these various methods add wealth and allow us to achieve more?
Comprehension and reverence are the secret to making things work. We realise that the world is always a little different to our children, partners, parents and collaborators, and we can appreciate that they approach life to respond to their own behavioural needs. When we have respect and appreciation for our differences, we will start to understand that the difference isn’t the same; the difference is the same.In our personal and professional lives, we should celebrate the uniqueness and unique character of each person.
