News-Antique.com - Jul 03,2009 - What is an ideal career? It starts with first understanding your personality, the traits you choose embrace and the side of your personality you'd prefer to ignore. Your personality strengths are what create your self image- the way you see yourself. Your self image is shaped over many years of succeeding and failing in all areas of your life until you habitually believe that you are good or bad at something based on your past performances. Relating to your job role, how well you relate to a task is what will bring you the most success in your career and indeed the most pleasure.
People are not caricatures, but to make the four main personality types easy to understand I will bring them to life by describing them in extremes. The four factors we will be looking at are dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance which makes the DiSC acronym, the highly accurate area of psychometric evaluation used by many of the world's leading corporations.

Influential people influence others through talking and activity and tend to be highly empathetic. They are described as convincing, magnetic, enthusiastic, persuasive, warm, demonstrative, trusting, and optimistic. These people are known as "expressive," they are influential, persuasive (but can also be persuaded), verbal, noisy, communicative, talkative, and emotional. They can be likely to forget that they have two ears and one mouth, will genuinely like people, and subsequently have a strong need to be liked. People who are high in the "I" factor have a major fear of rejection. Natural integrative leaders and people-orientated, they may ask, "How do you feel about that?" Influence indicates the desire to cause others to act to further one's own aspirations.
