The Four SOCIAL STYLES — Analytical Style

 

50 years of research has documented four unique SOCIAL STYLES.  Each Style is defined by observable patterns of behavior.  Understanding these patterns and each Style’s preferences results in more productive interactions.

ABCs of the Analytical Style 

 A. Actions Toward Others 

The Analytical Style person can appear uncommunicative, distant and cool. These people are cooperative as
long as they have some freedom to organize their own efforts. They tend to be cautious about extending
friendships.

B. Best Use of Time

The Analytical Style person has a strong time discipline coupled with a slow pace to action. He or she moves
with deliberateness and takes time to review all facts and available data. They do not respond well to being
rushed.

C. Customary Approach to Decisions-Making

The Analytical Style person tends to make decisions based on facts and verifiable information. They need
evidence and want to be sure that decisions made today will be valid in the future.
