The life of the party, this fun loving style infuses the atmosphere with joy, breaking heaviness and depression.

The Peaceful Supporter’s style carries the most peace of all the temperament styles. In a high strung, chaotic environment the Peaceful supporter will calm the storm. Because the supporter’s greatest strength is being team player, the desire to help is invaluable. While other high energy styles may be juggling too many balls, the supporter pays attention and finishes what was started. They are reliable, dependable, and loyal. If they promise to finish what was started, you can take it to the bank. As a great listener they understand the expansive scope of projects and plans and often anticipate needs before they arise.

Adapting to others

As your emphasis is on perfecting details, you may frustrate others in that you delay the start of a project. Be aware that you may over plan to a fault. Nothing needs to be 110% perfected. Delegate responsibilities without take on all yourself. Allow flexibility, as other styles aren’t as disciplined as you, and they may feel stifled by your agendas.
