A typical profile showing high D and S
A typical profile showing high D and S

Profiles showing both high Dominance and high Steadiness are somewhat rare in practice. This is because the two factors concerned represent such radically differing sets of values and motivations that it is hard for them to effectively coexist in a single style.

Relating to Others

The unusual combination of factors represented by this style make it difficult to predict their likely approach to other people. On one hand, Dominance is a controlled and somewhat suspicious factor, preferring to avoid revealing information to others, but on the other Steadiness is an open characteristic, representing a person who likes to maintain amiable and trusting relations with those around them. A person showing both high Dominance and Steadiness, then, will adapt their social style to a particular situation, showing a friendlier side to their character if they feel that they can trust the people around them.

Common Abilities

This type of person possesses a single-minded and practical style, representing an individual who will follow a line of action through to the end, using concentration and determination to achieve their aims. They will try to complete tasks within realistic timescales, but they also value careful planning. The profile shape suggests that the more cautious, thoughtful side of the personality will appear under favourable conditions, while the more urgent, demanding aspect will be seen at times of pressure.

Motivating Factors

The motivating factors associated with Dominance are control and power, while Steadiness is more related to the need for time and the avoidance of change. Insofar as these two factors are compatible, they suggest a preference for a situation in which this person exercises whatever authority they may have to preserve the status quo and avoid sudden change.
