Generally, individuals have different personalities that tend to change based on their current place, work, or friends at home. The behavior differs significantly, affecting how one feels, thinks, acts, makes decisions, and perceives others. I am no different from this temperamental pattern that people exhibit. Sometimes I have fluctuations in my actions which are dictated by the setting and the persons I am interacting with at the moment.
The term behavioral blend refers to the mixture of four types of personality that impacts the behavior and how people respond to different scenarios. According to the work of Carbonell (2008), the temperaments are categorized as DISC, whereby people tend to have a dominant trait and other sub-characters that play a role too. The combination makes the overall state of a person’s personality. When I took the keen analysis of the DISC model, I realized that I have two features that I portray. From the analysis, I am a D/S type of person because when I am assigned a task, I ensure it is done to perfection and demand quality work from the team. At the same time, I support others and allow them to perform at their pace, provided they will deliver as expected.
In my public graph, ‘D’ is higher and ‘S’ is lower, while ‘D’ is lower and ‘S’ is more elevated in private. In public, I am active and less submissive, especially when handling work-related tasks. On the other hand, when in private, I tend to be passive and sweet to people and sensitive at the same time. The changes are influenced by how familiar I am with the people and the environment. The behavioral blend makes me very strict when making a decision for people. Similarly, I become friendly and submissive and less firm when with friends.
Based on the analysis of my behavioral blend, I realized I have limited trust and faith in people I am less familiar with, and it makes me demand and remains more active towards them. According to the work of Schultze and Badzinski (2015), after the intended purpose is completed, I show Gratitude and appreciate the individuals of their effort. This principle links with being submissive and shows how I am grateful to the people.
