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 Passion Advantage…

You dislike drama or emotional upheaval. Avoid jobs that require you to invest a great deal of emotional energy in “feelings.” Instead, find ways to succeed using your natural mode of communication, your “wellspring,” or Primary Advantage.

Since you have a Dormant Passion Advantage, your personality adds value in a very different way. Here’s why using it feels like quicksand…

Your style of interaction tends to be more intellectual than “warm and fuzzy.” Instead of connecting with others based upon feelings, you usually connect based upon logic.

  • You tend to approach challenges rationally and methodically.
  • You like to have the facts before proceeding.
  • You are generally comfortable working independently.

Your typically linear thinking tends to get you from idea to execution well, unlike PASSION personalities who usually struggle in this area.

You are known to rely on facts when trying to persuade others and do not believe in a product or message without first requiring proof. You tend to feel most comfortable when there’s hard data and quantitative information to back-up whatever is being presented.
