WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE A DORMANT ALARM TRIGGER:
You are an optimistic and “big picture” thinker, and eager to start new projects. As a result, you are less likely to earn attention by focusing on negative consequences. ALARM personalities pay attention to deadlines and details in order to avoid potential problems. By focusing more on the bigger picture, you tend to be less concerned with the nuts and bolts about how to get something done and the milestones involved. You prefer to lock in on a goal and use your instincts to move forward, not fearing missteps.
HOW THIS AFFECTS YOUR PERSONALITY BRAND:
Rather than focusing on deadlines and structure, you enthusiastically pursue opportunities. You tend to steer toward a goal rather than become mired in the details of how to get there.
You are perceived as optimistic. Your ‘can do’ attitude invigorates those around you and makes them want to follow you. You usually don’t look at how something can fail but, rather, tend to focus on how it can succeed. Although you recognize that failure is a part of life, it doesn’t keep you from pursuing your goals. This is unlike ALARM personalities, who are practical and cautious.
You bring an open and adventurous spirit to your work. You tend to embrace ambiguous assignments and unknown challenges. Your quest for variety and new experience usually means you move head-on into areas and ideas that ALARM personalities, might avoid.
SHOULD YOU LEARN HOW TO ACTIVATE YOUR ALARM TRIGGER?
In certain situations, you’ll want to ramp up your use of the ALARM trigger in order to add a sense of structure and predictability. For instance, imagine you have a nervous new client. You’ll want to spell out all the specifics of your process, including the budgets, timelines and deliverables.
You thrive in situations that allow you to design your own path. Avoid jobs that are highly regimented or tightly controlled. You’re unlikely to be your most successful if forced to constantly measure and manage each meticulous detail.
