    Default [DISC] D-first and low dopamin level

    I'm talking of course about DISC profiles. What is really the difference between C and D ? I'm task-oriented, but I'm nothing like diplomatic or tactful, nor am I aggressive. I think I'm a lazy D-first, instead of a C-first.

    C-first people are more gentle-looking than D-first people. But though I am kind and friendly as a lamb, I pretty much communicate like a D-first, like being loud, saying "let's go", or "action is cool", or such, even if I'm lazy, because I'm an extrovert. (I acknowledge that you can be a D-first introvert)

    I mean, I feel like laws and norms are less important than reality, even if I'm a socionic IJ.

    What do you think ? Can, on specific cases, people with a low dopamin level, and a low or moderate serotonin level (i.e. Fours or Fives), be D-first ?

    You don't expect D-first people to have a low dopamine level, right ?

    the problem is the conclusion yields little insight and is a waste of time.

    Default DISC: what's hard being D-first

    http://www.discusonline.com/UDISC/

    Some DISC fans tend to have some bias that D is the best style. I can assure you that it's not, for these reasons :

    - People often feel like you're some badass, even if you're super-friendly like me.
    - Sharing one's style with ******'s, Stalin's, and Nietzsche.
    - Being perceived as rude.
    - Being misunderstood by cautious people because of being a risk-taker.
    - Having a hard time to socialise on informal contexts.
    - Hating and being hated by other D-firsts.
    - Appearing intimidating to most people, and thus unapproachable.
    - Tending to make shit and repairing one's own shit, instead of just avoiding to make it.
    - Feeling alone in the world, even when interacting with people (for extroverted D-firsts).
    - Being such a bad listener.

    So, don't tell me that D-first is cool. Of course it's not.

    Default DISC : D/S and S/D profiles

    Understanding DISC

    Understanding DISC: High Dominance and Steadiness

    They say they're extremely rare, but actually, 1 of 18 people have high D and S : Ethical Fours.

    SP and Social E4 Ethicals are S/D, whereas Intimate E4 Ethicals are D/S.

    SP and Social Fours are gentle, but quite pushy if needed. They have a paternalistic approach of relationships.

    Intimate Fours are directive and loud, sometimes intimidating. But they're actually gentle people (unlike Eights).

    S/D's and D/S's, act in either a driving, or caring way.

    C/D's and D/C's, act in either a driving, or analytical way. (btw, SP and Social E4 Logicals are C/D, Intimate E4 Logicals are D/C)
