FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: D/S

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The D/S Focus Style wants control and security in any given environment. Desiring control and security at the same time can result in conflicting emotions. Because the D/S likes an element of risk and challenge this creates a behavioral tension against the need for security with steady and stable relationships. The D/S likes a small team of close friends but will work independently at tasks and seeks results rather quickly. The D/S will accept conflict but is drawn to a more peaceful relationship environment. With a D/S Focus Style, the individual will tend to miss the details and facts important in decision-making and may seem to act impulsively. This could be a “blind spot” or just not behaviorally important. The D/S Focus Style should be more affirming and encouraging to others and less aggressive or cold in interpersonal relationships.
