Our Personality Style

There are four basic personality styles
Drivers    |    Promoters    |    Supporters    |    Analysers

When blended together in varying percentages these four personality styles make us who we are. Most people are a combination of two styles. The first style is your "Dominant Style", this is the one that governs how you behave most of the time. The second is your "Back Up" style, it's like your co-pilot and kicks in when there is a need for balance.

Here is an overview of the four personality styles and the career paths that match.
