If you've found that you mesh well with certain personality styles, but just can't seem to get along with others, DISC behavioral profiling may hold the answers. DISC testing holds that there are four basic behavioral styles: Dominant, Interactive, Steady and Conscientious. Every individual has a dominant style, which colors his interactions with everyone he meets.
When two people have opposing or very different styles, they might not have the kind of instant rapport that compatible people share. For example, the characteristics of a Dominant personality include a tendency to be forthright and open with others. A Conscientious person, on the other hand, is often indirect and closed-off, secretive or private. Thus, a Conscientious personality might view a Dominant person as threatening or imposing, while a Dominant person might view a Conscientious one as evasive and passive.
