  • High “S” protects his/her position
  • Avoid taking a stand and confronting

  • Be friendly, complimentary, listen to ideas, and recognize High “I”s accomplishments


High S:

  • View another High “S” as dependable, self-controlled, patient, kind, accommodating, and attentive
  • Be supportive to each other, but little will be accomplished
  • Avoid confrontation and seldom disagree openly
  • Set goals by external means to accomplish results

To Have An Effective Relationship:

  • Move at a steady pace; express appreciation; establish a friendship with another High “S”

High C:

During stressful times and conflict the High “S” might:

  • Be similar to the High “C” – does not hurry & is passive
  • Be both reluctant to make decisions
  • Translate the High “C” coolness as personal rejection
  • Push to build a relationship
