The only people who can make sense out of this:

are the Compliance personality type also known as The Analyzers. And then they’ll tell you the result isn’t accurate.

In general, “C” people can offer precise details about almost anything. They like to follow rules, both in their professional and personal life. And that’s a good thing because it brings them stability, an aspect they treasure. Because of the fact that they are analytical and systematical, they are really good problem solvers! When focused on solving a task, they get very creative because they see details other people miss.

Such individuals are usually peaceful and adaptable. They assess new situations objectively and approach them with tact. As a result, they minimise risks. Don’t expect to go bungee jumping…on the spot, with someone who fits a “C” personality type! They won’t take that chance!

Conscientious people like being dealt with in a reserved, formal manner. For them, it’s a matter of respect and recognition. As managers, they have an “all-hands-on-deck” attitude that gets the job done and has the wow effect. Because they like being right, they spend time researching every aspect of a situation. That leads to very high standards for themselves and for the people around them.

Like the “S” personality type, this one is also averse to change. It will prefer sticking to methods that have proved successful in the past, instead of trying something new. The difference here is how they react to confrontational situations. “S” people give in and comply with expectations, while “C’s” do anything in their power to avoid it.

Ok. But how to get along with a “Thinker”?

  1. do not criticise
  2. offer precise information
  3. respect their need to be alone
  4. they are instinctive organizers, so… let them organize
  5. do not generalise; it’s very offensive

Be able to recognize these types of behaviour in a “C” person!

  1. calmness
  2. need to double- or triple- check
  3. saying it like it is (they are, in fact, the reality anchor of the group)
  4. difficulty in expressing feelings
  5. little social interaction

According to Integrity Works Coaching, 15-20% of the population identifies with this personality type.

Remember … if you have strong C-Cautious traits (or are in “C-mode”):

  1. Don’t overdo details. You like details. You are good at details. That is terrific. The fact is that many people are not detail-oriented or prefer not to spend the mental energy it takes to process information. Some people get “information overload” very quickly. It is not always easy to know how much detail is “just right.” It’s usually better to be concise and summarize the main idea of what you are trying to communicate. At that point you can ask if the other person has more questions. That way, you are giving the other person an opportunity to let you know if they have enough detail to satisfy them. The mindset of some people is “I just need an answer, I don’t need an explanation.” That is not how your mind works, but it is how the mind of many others work.
  2. Remember the person, not just the task. C-personality styles are mainly task-oriented. That usually means that the task at hand often becomes the highest priority – even when there are also implications related to people that are involved. You can see where this is going. Always be aware of and considerate of those around you so that you can have more balance in life. It is rarely worth accomplishing a task if another person feels left out, unappreciated or not considered in the process.
  3. Smile! Yes, you can relax. Smiling will make you feel better and will make those around you feel more comfortable as well. Suggestion: Try smiling each time you meet someone today and watch how they respond. I think you will be amazed at how many of them smile back or respond in some positive way. They will wonder what you are up to! If they say, “what are you smiling about?,” just say, “I know something you don’t!” It will be our little secret.
