FOCUS PROFILE STYLE: S/D

GENERAL OBSERVATIONS

The S/D Focus Style wants security and control in any given environment. Desiring security and control at the same time can result in conflicting emotions and results. Because the S/D likes an element of risk and challenge this creates a behavioral tension against the need for security with steady and stable relationships. Given enough consideration decisions will be based on a security based reason rather than on domination or fact. The S/D likes a small team of close friends but will work independently at tasks and seeks results rather quickly. The S/D will accept conflict but is drawn by a more peaceful relational environment. With a S/D 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 S/D Focus Style will be more affirming and supportive to others in the relational arena than others with the D Focus style but may be missing the facts or process for task accomplishment.
