Your DORMANT Advantage is your most exhausting form of communication. It’s how you are least likely to surpass others. Tread carefully in these areas, because this form of communication is your “quicksand.” And it will cost you a disproportionate amount of time and energy.
Here’s a look at what it means to have a dormant Alert Advantage…
Avoid jobs that are highly regimented or tightly controlled. Instead, find ways to succeed using your natural mode of communication, your “wellspring,” or primary Advantage®.
Since you have a dormant Alert Advantage, your personality adds value in a very different way. Here’s why using it feels like quicksand...
Rather than focusing on deadlines and structure, you enthusiastically pursue opportunities. You tend to steer toward a goal rather than become mired in the details of how to get there.
- You may be perceived as optimistic.
- Your “can-do” attitude invigorates those around you and makes them want to follow you.
- You prefer to look at the big picture.
- You’re unlikely to be your most successful when forced to measure or manage meticulous details.
You usually don’t look at how something might fail but tend to focus on how it will succeed. Although you recognize that failure is a part of life, it doesn’t keep you from pursuing your goals.
Your quest for variety and new experiences usually means you move head-on into areas and ideas that ALERT personalities might avoid.
