I was looking at two different Everything DiSC Workplace profiles I took several years apart. My basic C style remains, but I’ve moved much more towards the outside and towards D. What does this tell me?
I believe that as I’ve aged I’ve become more comfortable being who I am, and in asserting my priorities. I’ve become more myself. I’ve also become much more comfortable moving into another style. So while I don’t typically seek out collaboration, for example, I am not ill at ease working that way. I’ve accepted that I’m introverted and that it’s not a character defect, as another example. So when I see phrases on the DiSC questionnaire that might have seemed a little undesirable to me in the past, I accept them now because I know that my preference does not equal my ability. I can show enthusiasm and be supportive even if I don’t show a strong preference for those behaviors.
