A debate is brewing among the TRACOM SOCIAL STYLE LinkedIn Group. Does SOCIAL STYLE and Versatility affect political success? As one commenter said:
“Was Al Gore ‘too Analytical’, or did he just fail to connect with the last .003% of voters because he wasn’t versatile enough? Was Reagan the teflon president because he was in part so versatile? Probably.”
People who are strongly committed to a political party are less likely to be influenced by a candidate’s Style since they’ve made their voting decision before a candidate is even named or nominated. It’s known that people make very fast judgments about candidates, so elements of Versatility are likely to be important for politicians, above and beyond their natural Styles.
