STEADINESS (S) & Compliance (C)

People of this type, showing, first, high Steadiness (S) and, second, high Compliance (C), are often referred to as ‘Technicians’. 

This term is used in its broadest sense; people with this type of approach are suited to jobs such as accountancy, computer programming or engineering, because their personalities combine accuracy and precision with the patience to work at a problem until it has been solved. They are interested in producing quality work, and will often go to great lengths to ensure that the results of their efforts are the best they can possibly achieve.

Calm and rational in approach, this type of person often has a better understanding of personal or emotional issues than might be suggested by their relatively detached demeanour. They are not assertive in style, and will rarely offer input in a group situation, or act in an independent manner.

How they relate to others

This rather passive style often finds it difficult to relate to other people, especially in unfamiliar settings, because they need to know exactly where they stand before they feel able to act. While Technicians value friendships and strong relations with others, this factor is often disguised by an apparently aloof and reserved style. In order to interact effectively with others, this type will look to more direct and outgoing styles to initiate and take control of interpersonal issues.

What they are good at

As the term ‘Technician’ suggests, the particular talents and skills of this type of person lie in the areas of complex systems and procedures. Their high Steadiness lends them patience and a degree of persistence, while their correspondingly high levels of Compliance bring an interest in order and precision to their behaviour. In combination, these factors reflect an individual with strong potential in broadly technical work. Because of their interest in quality and productivity, it is not unusual to find people of this kind who possess special skills or knowledge, especially in the ‘technical’ areas described.

What motivates them

A consequence of the patient, precise style of this type is a need for time to plan and execute their work to a standard with which they can feel satisfied. Technicians will wish to work steadily at a project, and dislike interruptions or distractions from the task in hand. They will also seek certainty, and need to be sure that the work that they are doing conforms with the expectations of their colleagues and managers.
