What Type of Introvert Are You?

Introvert or Extrovert?

Do you wish you were someone else–personality wise?  Introverts may wish they were more outgoing. Extroverts wish they were more calm and focused.  In this series of posts on personality style, I’ll be sharing how understanding our temperament can lead us to celebrate our strengths and and stand in our own power rather than wishing we were different.
Are You More Outgoing or Reserved?

According to the DISC personality profile there are four basic personality types and 41 possible combinations or blends of those. That’s a lot of combinations! Two of the types are outgoing.  They are fast paced, energetic, enthusiastic doers who have an internal motor set on go.  Two of the personality types are more reserved and slower paced.  They are more laid back, tend to take their time and think things through carefully.

Are Your More Task Focused or People Focused?

Another way to divide the four types is according to their focus.  Two of the personality types are more people focused.  They tend to be more social, interested in teamwork, communication and personal interaction.  Two of the personality types tend to be more task oriented.  They tend to be more focused on process, plans, program, guidelines and accomplishment of a goal.  Which one describes you? Here is today’s video that will help you decide which of the four possible personality styles describes you:

As you can see from the video, understanding your personality style is crucial to success in so many areas!  It affects our relationships with family, co-workers and friends.
