Internal Profile

The Internal Profile reflects the candidate's true motivations and desires. This is the type of behaviour that often appears outside a working environment, or when an individual is placed under pressure.
Dominance 95% Influence 73% Steadiness 14% Compliance 46%

External Profile

The External Profile describes the candidate's perception of the type of behaviour they should ideally project. This shape usually represents the type of behaviour that an individual will try to adopt at work.
Dominance 61% Influence 90% Steadiness 30% Compliance 22%

Summary Profile

In reality, candidates will usually act in ways consistent with elements from both profiles. The Summary Profile is a combination of the other two graph shapes, describing a person's likely normal behaviour.
Dominance 66% Influence 88% Steadiness 19% Compliance 37%

Shift Pattern

Shift Pattern graph shows the changes between the candidate's Internal and External Profiles, and so highlights the adaptations the candidate is making to their character.
Dominance -34% Influence +17% Steadiness +16% Compliance -24%

Social Orientation Friendliness Persistence

Potential Traits These are traits that are native to John's personal style, but that he does not seem to feel are appropriate to his current working conditions.

Objectivity Sensitivity Efficiency

Inactive Traits These are traits that are not normally seen in any aspect of John's behaviour. Though these types of behaviour are not completely absent from John's style, it will be relatively unusual to see him follow these patterns of behaviour.

effects under certain conditions, especially if John's style is not suited to making adaptations of this kind.

Probable source: Being provided too little challenge or competition.

textual report
Overview John can be effectively described by the single word 'confidence'. He is assertive and extrovert, and he possesses both a drive towards success and a pro-active communicative style. He thinks and acts quickly, and so he can respond well to changes in his situation - indeed, he prefers a measure of variety and unpredictability. His strong and persuasive style works best where he has a degree of control over his own working conditions - he very much prefers to be responsible for his own actions, although he will cooperate with others where he sees that he has no practical alternative. Behavioural Adaptation While John may be naturally disposed to a relatively formal and controlled demeanour, his profile shows that, in his present working environment, he feels the need to interact with others in a more personable and friendly way. Among the adaptations he is making to his style are a more considerate, thoughtful approach to others, and a greater interest in their views and feelings. Advantages John is both extrovert and assertive. He is capable of being highly focused on his goals, and driving towards them in a dynamic way. He is also very socially oriented, and works well with and around other people. His outgoing, effusive

approach makes it easy for him to communicate effectively in either a formal or an informal situation. Disadvantages John's social focus and his rather low concentration threshold combine to suggest that he may be seen as somewhat unpredictable at times. He is interested in new experiences and new situations, and while this adds a degree of resilience to his behavioural style, it also means that he finds it hard to apply himself to a project in the long term, unless it provides sufficient variety and interest for him. Communication Style John combines a socially extrovert element with a more direct and assertive side. In practice, this will usually mean that he is an effective and open communicator as long as a situation remains free of conflict or pressure, but that he is quite capable of switching to a more demanding and direct approach when necessary. This less friendly side is also seen in particularly formal situations. There is a strongly dominant side to his character, in both personal terms and in the wider sense that he likes to feel in control of a situation; this dominance will often manifest itself in his relationships with others. He is demanding and difficult at times, but the problems that these attitudes can cause are modified by the fact that he is also capable of open, even warm, behaviour at other times. Decision Making This active and energetic individual will not typically wait for decisions to be presented to him, but will prefer to independently assess a situation and work out for himself the decisions that need to be reached. John's high levels of personal confidence means that he feels at ease reaching conclusions on only limited information. Indeed, even where more detailed facts are known, he may be tempted to disregard them and follow his own instincts. He is outgoing and persuasive, and this will aid him in convincing others that his decisions are the right ones, and in persuading them to follow his conclusions. Organisation And Planning John's innate sense of self-confidence, coupled with his preference to respond immediately to a set of circumstances, means that he is not naturally oriented

towards planning and organisation. He tends to take a very broad view of events, and correspondingly pays less attention to fine details. Motivation John can be characterised as driving, assertive and openly communicative. His sense of motivation comes primarily from the opportunity to exercise these elements of his style. He will want to feel that he is able to act independently, according to his own view of a situation, without being bound by what he sees as unnecessary constraints. One of John's strengths is his ability to motivate himself and those around him. For this reason, he is often at his best in a position of leadership, or at least in a role where he can directly influence events. Managing Style John's managing style derives from his more general sociable, open approach. He likes to enjoy positive working and personal relationships with his staff, but he will still attempt to maintain an air of receptive authority. He has an enthusiastic, and somewhat impulsive style, and this can sometimes make him appear unpredictable. Nonetheless, he will endeavour to spread an atmosphere of relaxed camaraderie, and prefers to persuade those working for him to a course of action, rather than impose direct instructions. Style of Management Required A challenging candidate from a manager's perspective, John has a competitive and driving attitude that will need to be carefully handled. In particular, he will find it difficult to work for a manager whose abilities he does not respect, and so it is important for a manager to earn this respect if they are to receive the benefits of John's assertiveness. He also has a rather competitive nature, and will wish to feel that he is earning appropriate rewards for his work.
