DISC Style: Assessor - IC; (Free via Tony Robbins)
Assessors apply creative focus to practical, workable concepts and make them doable. They display competitive and results-oriented interactions but engage others with persuasion rather than through aggressive methods. They are good at explaining their ideas and the steps required to reach their goals. They are organized and often have a step by step action plan to assure a good result. They can be quite verbal in stating their dissatisfaction and in criticising others who are not contributing.
