Diversity recognizes individual differences, and individual differences in relation to thought, emotional, behavioral patterns reference personality. The study of personality dates back to Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, and his classification of the four human temperaments.
At the recent New York Times Travel Show, Paul Wiseman, who is the president of Trafalgar, provided insight on a DISCover program which is based upon research from Dr. William Marston. DISC is a categorization of individuals into the following personality types … Dominant, Influencer, Steady, and Compliant. These four personality types are then represented by the symbol of a bird … Eagle, Peacock, Owl, and Dove respectively. Wiseman concluded with, “Our success lies in how we interact with other human beings.”
As we begin to classify individuals into the four DISC personality types, we will develop an instinctive understanding on how individuals think, feel, and behave. Eagles are dominant and decisive, and they are comfortable with conflict. Peacocks are influencers, and they are inclined to ask nicely for what they need and are enamored of compliments. Owls use discerning judgment and generally like to communicate in writing. Doves love security and building personal relationships. The chart below is a summary of the personality types and behavioral characteristics.
The old adage “Birds of a feather flock together” does hold true. Although we are attracted to people who are different from us, we are most attracted to others who have a similar focus. However, the Opposites Attract theory is supported by Robert Levenson’s research on personality similarities and differences and marital satisfaction; the study results led him to conclude that “Different personalities may provide couples with complementary resources dealing with life’s challenges.”
By increasing our knowledge and understanding of individual personality types, it will improve our relationships whether they are happily-ever-after marriages or business relationships. Strength, beauty, wisdom, and charm lies in the diversity of thought! In the words of George R. R. Martin from A Game of Thrones, “Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.” ?
