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.

What does it mean to have a Dormant Mystique Advantage?

Excellent question. I’ll show you.

If you have a Dormant Mystique Advantage you want to jump right into the heart of the action.

Since you have a Dormant Mystique Advantage, your personality doesn’t tend to be quiet and reflective. If you have to use Mystique in your communication, it feels like quicksand. Here’s why…

You persuade others by being straightforward and open, whereas MYSTIQUE personalities persuade by provoking questions without giving answers. Your approachability is what attracts others to you.

  • You generally don’t hide your opinions.
  • Some may even refer to you as an open book.
  • In business negotiations that require holding back information, you may tend to feel challenged, because containing how you feel typically is not a natural response for you.

People typically know where they stand with you. You might have a difficult time hiding how you feel.
