Style of Influence


Take Charge Supportive Designers need to lead. They will find themselves moving to positions of influence in any organization. They desire to influence others through the accomplishment of a vision. They will motivate and stimulate others and many times will be the central force in a group. They are both creative and supportive. They have a strong drive to accomplish a task and will make sure the details are done right. Take Charge Supportive Designers are catalysts for others' actions. They enjoy influencing others and, usually, are strongly motivated to help others achieve. They desire responsiveness from others regarding their ideas. They will not tolerate, in the long run, not being used by their superiors. They will naturally seek out a position of influence. Under pressure, they can become manipulative or demanding. They perceive this as a strong commitment to the task while others perceive it as being too forceful. Take Charge Supportive Designers are people who combine intuitive abilities with an awareness of the importance of accomplishing a task. They are most effective when they are given an opportunity to lead and influence others. They will usually do well controlling their own schedules. At times they may get too many irons in the fire.

Your Motivational Distortion Score: 9
You were probably not motivated to make yourself appear better or worse.

This scale basically looks for any motivational distortion. If you scored 16 or higher, you were probably motivated for some reason to make yourself appear worse than you actually are. If you scored 7 or below, however, you were probably motivated to make yourself appear better than you actually are. A person who wants to appear in a good light (for instance, the leader of a group), could understandably be scoring 7 or below. The individual will have to evaluate himself/herself whether he/she may have been subtly motivated to score well.
