What are Social Styles?
The Merrill social styles form a personality model that includes four personality styles. These styles each have different properties and thought processes. This simple and practical tool can be used to understand differences between individuals within a group. Each squad member has different qualities, and approaches their job in a different way. These differences can be harnessed as strengths, allowing everyone to engage as much of their natural potential as possible.
Primary Style: Expressive
The right-bottom quadrant represents the group of expressive people from the Merrill social styles model. These people are adventurous and move fast in life. Expressives like to share new ideas and plans.
Their favourite approach to a problem or issue is to create a vision for the future and seek support from others by emphasising the advantages. They are experts at making others feel energetic, working enthusiastically, using humour in work, and taking risks. Others view this group of people as impulsive, creative, and convincing.
Primary Style: Amiable
The top-bottom quadrant represents the group of amiable people from the Merrill social styles model. These people are thoughtful, kind, support others, and take their time to build a good relationship with others. They prefer to approach a problem or issue by reaching consensus.
They often play a mediating role in such situations.
Amiables believe that the best solution is a solution that brings all stakeholders on board. Others view this group as kind, friendly, and self-deprecating.
