Need To Serve
The High S has an inherent need to serve. Always the one to help out, the High S lends a hand to get the job done. Other styles may serve for differing reasons, but the High S has a natural tendency to serve. In other words, serving and helping energizes the High S.
High S’s do not switch jobs very often, preferring to remain in once company as long as possible. Also, the High S will tend to stay in a relationship a long time, be it business or personal for reasons for security and also harmony. With the goal of harmony, High S’s become very adaptable to the situation, modifying their behaviour in order to achieve a sense of stability and harmony.
Showing a cool, relaxed face, High S’s are not easily triggered or explosive in nature. Although they are very active emotionally, they do not show their emotion. An introverted personality, they will hide their problems and not wear their “heart on their sleeve.” High S’s have been known to lead their team to great heights, even while going through incredible personal struggles.
High S’s will develop strong attachments to their workgroup, family, club or association. They operate very well as members of a team and coordinate their efforts with others easily. They will strive to maintain the status quo, since they do not want change that is unexpected or sudden.
Closure is essential for the High S. In other words, they must be allowed to finish what they must allowed to finish what they start. To start several jobs and leave them undone is stressful to the High S. In a task-oriented situation, they should be given a few tasks and allowed to complete them before moving on. Having to “jugle” many balls at once is also stressful to the High S. The tendency observed is for High S’s to read one book before they start another. High S’s have been observed to dislike watching a movie or television if they have missed the start of the program.
High S’s, once in an established “groove” or pattern, can follow it with unending patience. They have the ability to do routine work, at all skill levels, and develop good work habits.
Amiable, easy going, and relaxed, the High S will build strong relationships with a few close people. Sensibility, low risk, steadiness, and serenity mark the High S style.
