The way we think and behave is different!
Men counted 4 different styles of how we conduct. And this is part of our decision making ability!
Today I introduce you to all 4 styles, to give you the overview of how they´re constructed internally:
- The Theorist = analytical, logical, technical
- Controlled Action = structured, organized, controlled / checked
- Social Action = emotional, empathic, artistic
- Innovator = intuitive, constructive, integral
This describes 4 styles of people, who are organized to certain groups of thinking and acting. Let me give you more insight to all four:
- The Theorist
acts and thinks analytical, detailed, technical, logical, mathematical, dominant, self-reliant or confident, energetic, independent, in readiness for conflicts, determined, critical, consequent, reserved or distant.
- Controlled Action
acts and thinks persistent, controlled, aims towards projects, confident, reflects, punctual, exact, persevering, correct and systematic.
- Social Action
acts and thinks integrating, in need of harmony, emotional, sociable, communicative, understanding, prefers to join a team.
acts and thinks inventive, imaginative, creative, erratic, integral, persuasive, spontaneous, willing to take a risk, adventurous, vivid, curious.
If you ask yourself now, WHY do I mention this in terms of the decision making ability – in general? Here´s the answer: some of us are more talented than others to make bold decisions.
And this is no clear result of 1 type only, no, it´s rather a certain mix! WHAT do we need when we think of, prepare and transfer the decision result? Here´s what I think:
- Imagination to reach the (distant) goal (!)
- Creativity for alternatives
- Integration ability to implement details and “musts” in our daily life (!)
- Persuasive arguments to convince ourself (self-talk)
- Willingness to take risks (!)
- Aiming towards goals (!)
- Confidence (!)
- Persistence (!)
- Readiness for conflicts (!)
- Consequent (!)
In my next posts I´ll explain why those 4 styles are partly relevant for the decision making ability to open your eyes a little further.
You will be able to spot your own talents and you´ll understand at which point in the decision process the talents bring a strong use for you. Reflecting, will give you an idea of where in the process you can improve to become stronger!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
