    Default DISC question on adaptive and natural styles.

    There is a big difference in my natural stabilizing and adaptive stabilizing. Here is a link to my results DISC results. The test results were pretty spot on, I'm curious what the difference means and any other comments on the test.

    Cheers.

    I can never get to documents on that site. See if this helps you understand:

    Natural Style: The natural style is how
    you behave when you are being most
    natural. It is your basic style and the one
    you adopt when you are being authentic
    and true to yourself. It is also the style
    that you revert to when under stress or
    pressure.

    Adaptive Style:
    The adaptive style is
    how you behave when you feel you are
    being observed or how you behave
    when you are aware of your behavior.
    This style is less natural and less
    authentic for you or your true tendencies
    and preferences. When forced to adopt
    to this style for too long you may become
    stressed and less effective.

    Thanks, I was wondering why and what it means in particular that my stabilizing swings like that. The rest are pretty even but stabilizing is Natural 63 and Adaptive 25. It's interesting because I can see the two aspects in my personality and a mental swing like that. I do feel stress in the low stabilizing but I also feel good.

    I did, and then my computer crashed. Lol. I have an issue with my graphics card and LCD screen.
    I do remember your natural I= 81.

    Let's address the 63 natural and 25 adaptive S scores .
    Do you swing back and forth on your levels of risk-taking and/ or being impulsive?
    In other words, a tug of war between playing it safe and rolling the dice?

    Here are the scores

    Natural
    D 49
    I 81
    S 63
    C 39

    Adaptive
    D 42
    I 88
    S 25
    C 28

    Yeah, I do see myself in that way. I like the more impulsive side but can see the need to hold it down to hold things together. Mentally, I'll be steady and suddenly feel a huge mental/physical rush to change.

    So, I mean, what I am curious about is knowing that about myself what can I do with it. Just be aware of it? It feels like there could be some understanding to be had from it but I can't put my finger on it.

    Actually it tires people around me. The poor buggers. I reckon they should just enjoy the ride, but that's me.

    That's what I used mine for - layers of awareness. Just look at it as the many sides of wolfy. Does there have to be something wrong with being predictably unpredictable?

    Suppose not. It's an interesting discovery. Nothing wrong with it at all.
