    Default Temperaments (Social Styles)

    I was introduced to a new way of typing people yesterday, by temperament, which the developers of this call Social Style and is based on the two qualities of assertiveness and responsiveness. It's something that I hadn't seen before and I was trying to determine what MBTI types these temperament types might be. Since I'm not that skillful at typing, I thought I'd throw this out to the forum for your collective help.

    I'll list the style and provide a list of attributes that was given, help me determine what MBTI type might fit.

    Driver Style
    • high assertiveness
    • low responsiveness
    • sometimes called directors
    • focus on tasks, not relationships
    • confident, decisive, results-oriented
    • determined to win
    • willing to take risks
    • arrogant and dominating
    • hard time admitting they're wrong
    • not good with people
    • seen as cold and uncaring
    • you must communicate with them professionally or they'll lose respect for you
    • avoid vagueness
    • present goals and objectives, explain how to achieve them in a business-like manner
    • don't get personal or friendly with them, they're not interested


    Expressive Style
    • high assertiveness
    • high responsiveness
    • focus on relationships
    • sometimes called socializers
    • open, self-assured, outgoing, enthusiastic, friendly, fun-loving
    • egotistical, undisciplined
    • creative, innovative, good at problem-solving
    • persuasive, talented negotiators
    • don't require much detail
    • need acknowledgement of their accomplishments
    • need opportunities to express their ideas and act on them
    • be enthusiastic and positive with them
    • need opportunities to interact and motivate others


    Analytical Style
    • low assertiveness
    • low responsiveness
    • alsot known as thinkers
    • like to solve problems
    • industrious and conscientious
    • will search for perfection which causes deadline problems
    • never accept things as good enough to be completely finished
    • critical and indecisive
    • interested in proof, facts, figures
    • risk adverse
    • require accurate and precise facts
    • tends to ask lots of questions


    Amiable Style
    • high responsiveness
    • low assertiveness
    • also known as relaters
    • quiet, avoid conflict and decision making
    • dependent and unsure of themselves
    • conscientious, steady, work to given goals and timetables
    • need structure and plenty of positive attention


    I'm thinking:
    Analytical Style might be NT's
    Amiable Style might be SF's
    Expressive Style might be NF's
    Driver Style might be ST's

    What do you think?

    Just my cursory opinions, but :

    Driver = ExT(J)
    Expressive = ExF(P)
    Analytical = IxTx
    Amiable = IxFx

    I think the E/I factor is important in the consideration of these. (After all, you call them "social" styles -- so shouldn't it be?)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I match the amiable one more than the expressive. I am normally passive and agreeable unless it is something really important to me like the people I love or a gross injustice.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    What do you think?
    Well I think the Driver Styler is worth the appellation.
    He/She is an ESTJ.

    Unfortunately there exists also women among the type.
    I have seen many.
    Well, at least on the screen, in the old days.
    The ESTJs do not exactly undervalue the role of the media.
    The power game.

    Thank you sdalek.
    I always thought there was a thing inequitable and unfit about the MBTI descriptions concerning the ESTJ.

    And you found what it was, sdalek.

    Because you did something these INT chaps never do.
    You left the MBTI to understand it.

    There were many Americans in Europe after the war.
    In the beginning the response to the Americans was very good.

    A countermeasure.
    The response to their responsiveness.

    This is the dilemma about extraversion.

    The Europeans had no experience about the new circumstance.
    Extraversion is not what it looks like.
    The Europeans mistook extraversion for responsiveness.

    Extraversion is not about responsiveness.

    Correct by all accounts.

    I agree with the poster in front of me in that this is definitely not correct. ESFPs don't fit in with that amiable gentry whatsoever.

    Is this the same temperament theory in regards to the MBTI too or is it something separate? The first person to reply here treated it as something individual and unique and it seems like this is; the categories here tend to focus more so on one or two types rather than functional or temperamental groupings.

    the OP theory uses two scales "asking-telling" and "emoting-controlling". e.g. the "analytics" are "asking+controlling" and the "expressives" are "emoting+telling". we did it at work and the people in each of the four groups were a near complete correlations to the Keirsey temperaments i mentioned. i know that because we did MBTI the year before.

    it might not fit your ideas but it near-correlated to a real-life group of 30 people.
