Part I: Personal Thinking Styles
Primary Thinking Style
According to my LSI Circumplex, I fall more towards the Constructive Style which is a mixture of People Orientation and Satisfaction Needs. According to the Human Synergistics’ the constructive style reflects self-enhancing thinking and behavior that contribute to one’s level of satisfaction, ability to develop healthy relationships and work effectively with people, and proficiency at accomplishing tasks. Per the LSI PowerPoint presentation, constructive styles account for synergy and explain why certain individuals, groups, and organizations are particularly effective in performance, growth, and work quality. Overall, the styles in this category seem to best fit my lifestyle at this point in my life, including achievement, humanistic – encouraging, self-actualizing and affiliative. My primary thinking style is humanistic – encouraging. This does not surprise me, I try to be supportive of others and I try to be the best listener I can. I also think that I am a good teacher, this is a quality I must get from my mother since she was a first and second grade teacher for 26 years. I often went into her classroom while I was in school and helped her kids learn how to read, do mathematics, and create science projects. I also try to make others think for themselves. I have a 21 month old soon to be step-daughter who is just starting to talk and learn her letters, sounds, colors, etc. she often gets frustrated with me but I push her to learn these things and now she know all of her colors and animal sounds, we are still working on the letters though. In time she will get there. To see a detailed self description, please reference the LSI Styles Circumplex in the Appendix.
