When looking at the graphs read your Natural Style graph first.
Your Natural Style graph is on the right. This graph describes how you tend to behave naturally in non-stressful conditions. To read your natural graph start with the red “D” bar on the left and end with the blue “C” bar on the right.
Each colored bar has a meaning that is briefly described below. Scores above 50 are high in that behavioral style. Scores below 50 are low. How high or low you score shows how strongly you display that attribute or not. If you are in the middle, it means that your style in that category tends to be moderate. There is no “correct” score to have. Your personal style is a unique blend of D, I, S, and C.

D, the red bar on the graphs, stands for Dominance. High D’s tend to be direct, forceful, challenge oriented, and bold. Low D’s tend to be non-confrontational, low key, cooperative, and agreeable. The emotion associated with high D’s is anger. Famous high D’s are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
I, the yellow bar on the graphs, stands for Influencing. High I’s tend to be enthusiastic, persuasive, talkative, and trusting. Low I’s tend to be reflective, skeptical, factual, and matter of fact. The emotion associated with high I’s is optimism. Famous high I’s are Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey.
S, the green bar on the graphs, stands for Steadiness. High S’s tend to be steady, patient, predictable, and calm. Low S’s tend to be change oriented, flexible, restless, and impatient. The emotion associated with high S’s is non-emotional – they do not readily display their emotions. Famous high S’s are Mother Teresa and Gandhi.
C, the blue bar on the graphs, stands for Compliance. High C’s tend to be analytical, cautious, accurate, and detail oriented. Low C’s tend to be independent, unsystematic, stubborn, and unconcerned with details and following rules. The emotion associated with high C’s is fear. Famous high C’s are Al Gore and Hermione from Harry Potter.
NATURAL vs. ADAPTED GRAPHS
Your natural style is on the right and describes how you show up naturally. Your adapted style is on the left and describes how you adjust to fit current circumstances. If you see a large difference between the scores in your natural and adapted style graphs it indicates that you may be feeling stress due to this adaption. If this is true for you, ask yourself, what is the source of this stress? How can I alleviate some of this stress? Please note that as a student you are required to follow certain rules and regulations to graduate. As a result, many students adapt their “C” (Compliance) higher in classroom. This is OK, sometimes we all have to adapt to reach a desired result and you may have to adapt too.
