As it relates to communication, what is behavioral blend and how does it impact interpersonal communication?
1 Answer | Add Yours
Behavioral blending is the combination of trait factors any one individual possesses as measured on the Four Temperament Models of Human Behavior, also referred to a DISC for the four temperament labels. Briefly, task orientation and people orientation are measured according to the two extreme pairs of Active/Passive and Outgoing/Reserved. Testing designs within this model produce a score that identifies a range of these traits.
The identification of this range of traits is valuable, sometimes, one might say, even critical to successful interpersonal communication because this knowledge can potentially prevent unnecessary, perhaps explosive, confrontations or potentially enhance successful communication of information whether in daily communications or in important communications.
