The paper addresses this example of a DISC analysis where there is a predominantly dominant-type personality, an influence-focused type, and a stable-type personality. The paper explains the dominant, influence, stable and conscientious personality classifications and details how they can each compromise and communicate to achieve success as a team.

From the Paper:

"Influence-based types are emotional, social, and optimistic. They have a poor sense of creating a step-by-step, linear process of realizing goals, following deadlines, and achieving clear objectives, but a good people sense. This can make their interpersonal style very frustrating for influence types and steady types. Relating to others is what gives influence-based personalities the greatest satisfaction, and pleasing others is what motivates influences. Influencers communicate in a highly personal, often discursive manner in a way that can frustrate the other types. Steady types are also motivated by helping others, but derive satisfaction by following the rules, and perform in a more goal-directed manner, like dominant types, even though they are interested in the feelings of others, like influence-based types.
"One of the dangers of a DIS team profile is that it may be lead by the one dominant personality. The individual who ranks high in dominance is likely to want to make decisions quickly, and to steer the group in a specific, goal-directed fashion. He or she may dominate the steady type of person, and the influence-type person may want to please this natural leader--or grow angry and resentful of the dominant person's focus on facts rather than feelings. While the dominant person's attitude may seem to be good for 'getting things done' it can also stifle positive debate and discussion. The dominant person may also put his or her own, personal interests ahead of the interests of the group, which will particularly frustrate the steady type of person, who has a high degree of organizational loyalty and values group harmony."
