Does your socially interactive joyful socializer style help or hinder your practice?  Do your team members have the optimal socializer style strength for their positions?  Do you want a happier more fulfilling practice and life?  If so, maybe this pearl can help.


Human personality; a synopsis:

Refer to the management pearl “How Personality Helps or Hinders: Part-1, Director Style” for a fuller understanding of human personality.

Human personality is our emotional and rational reactions to our sensory input to help us to physically and socially survive.  Our personality is genetically structured at birth (nature) and modified throughout life by our memories (nurture).

We have four emotional/rational reaction pairs: anger-director, fear-analyzer, joy-socializer and sorrow-relator.

The emotions triggers its rational style to react to the situation based on past memories.

Each emotion/style is strong, moderate or weak based on daily usage; we only have one strongest emotion.

Each style has its obvious attributes (motivations, attitudes and pace).  That's why the director and relator styles are opposite and the analyzer and socializer styles are opposite.

A style is either people- or task-oriented and we can only concentrate on one or the other, never both.

The relator and socializer styles are people-oriented and the director and analyzer styles are task-oriented.
