Right and wrong has nothing to do with a person’s behavioural profile.
Right and wrong is based on a person’s values and beliefs. A person’s behavioural profile only describes the differences in HOW people approach problems, other people, pace and procedures. Winners come from all styles of behaviours.
Michael Jordon has a dominant behaviour style on the basketball court, and people view him as a role model, not because he is a dominant player, but because of his values.
Saddam Hussein also has a dominant behavioural style, but people view him as a tyrant, not because he is dominant, but because he has low respect for human lives.
Interestingly enough, the behavioural style people usually prefer is similar to their own – “Bird of a feather flock together.”
In extreme cases, we have seen heads of organisations not hire someone based on their behavioural style. Having nothing to do with a bona fide job selection process the people making the hiring decisions simply do not like certain behavioural styles and wanted only to hire people around who were like them. This is called “behavioural blindness”. The thinking behind this is narrow-minded, but can be changed by learning about other behavioural profiles.
A person’s behavioural type is NOT what makes them good or bad, right or wrong. It is their belief and values – only – that has everything to do with good or bad, right or wrong.
