The limitations listed for the High D, are tendencies for the pure High-D, which represent a very small percentage of the population. Each of these tendencies are altered by the position of the “I”, “S” and “C” factors and by the individual’s values.
The High-D may…
- Overstep authority
- Be too direct
- Be impatient with others
- Be argumentative
- Not listen well; be a one-way communicator
- Take on too many tasks
- Push people rather than lead them
- Lack tact and diplomacy
- Focus too heavily on task
The possible limitations of the High D are the opportunities for growth.
The very strengths of the “D” overused can become weaknesses.
The challenge is to make the High-D aware of their strengths and weaknesses and train them to cognitively make the correct VALUE choices needed for everyone to win.
