Have you ever of thought of cars in terms of DISC styles?
Imagine the commanding Mercedes S600 sedan, with its powerful image of strength, control and authority.
How about the charming and amusing Fiat Spider convertible that sends fun and exciting messages of spontaneous open air drives with loved ones and friends? Consider the reliable and comfortable Honda Odyssey minivan with more than enough room for family, friends and pets. Last, but not least, there’s the quality engineered Volvo XC70V with its practical design and state-of-the-art safety technology. Now are you starting to associate the DISC styles with cars?
A great way to practice the DISC tool is to think in terms of people, places, and things when associating the four DISC styles. Think of famous people from TV shows like Star Wars, Friends or Big Bang Theory. Can your identify the main DISC styles of C3PO, Darth Vader, Han Solo or Princess Lei? What about famous athletes? Who are the players that win at all costs and take no prisoners, the unselfish team players, the technicians, and the colorful and vocal leaders? Does Magic Johnson, Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt, Cristiano Ronaldo or Roger Federer fit into the DISC styles for you?
You can even try identifying the DISC styles of public companies. Think of Apple, Wal-Mart, Target, Bank of America, JP Morgan, or Southwest Airlines just to name a few.
You can put just about everything in terms of DISC styles.
For people pay attention to traits such as what the person talks about, the types of words they use, body language, and tone of the voice. For other things like cars think about the visual appearance and what values you see in the product.
So the next time you meet someone or look at a car, animal, house or even a company, try it in terms of DISC style!
