The results driven personality type

Personality type

Oprah Winfrey, a famous Choleric Personality type

We need to make sure we get the message across correctly here because we are going to talk about the Driver/Choleric personality and they like things to be done correctly and the best. Like our friends the Expressive/Sanguine the Driver /Choleric is an extrovert just more of aperfectionist.

Let me just remind you that as we go through these personality types please use the information as a basic guide only, there are numerous books and CD’s in the market place on the subject, I highly recommend Florence Littaeur’s book called personality plus. This book is a great guide and it will help you with your communication skills.

So let’s get going with today’s personality type the Driver/Choleric.

When you think of the word driver, what type of characteristics come to mind? Perhaps you get the feeling of someone out front pushing through things to get to the top? Perhaps you get the picture of a person who leads from the front planning and organising what route should be taken.

If you pictured anything like this you have picked up on some of the basics of the Driver/ Choleric personality. They tend to be strong focused goal oriented people who want to get the job done and done well. They are Natural born leaders and they are terrific at seeing the big picture so when you appoint a Driver/ Choleric a job they are usually able to see all aspects of the job that need to done. They are often natural born leaders who are strong willed and decisive and who love to win or be the best

The negative aspects of this personality type can be that they are very demanding, not good at small talk, can be frightfully Independent and very impatient with people “who don’t get on with it!”  They can be workaholic’s and not really understand why others aren’t the same.

So if you were talk to a Driver/Choleric about your Network Marketing Opportunity and said things like, our company offers the opportunity for you to work from home so you can spend your mornings perhaps having a coffee with friends and then maybe you start your work around midday and work for a 4- 5 hours, then you have plenty of time to do all the other things you would like to do. Maybe you would like to travel because you can do your business anywhere and you are your own boss so you can do what you like when you like, if you are saying things like this you have probably lost them.

On the other hand if you were to say something like this, our company offers the opportunity for people who are strong leaders the ability to generate an uncapped income. There is an endless scope of opportunity for development in the business because not only can you build your Network Marketing business country wide you can also build it internationally in over 38 countries. Our company also prides itself on being the best of the best with our innovations in our product range  through to the production of point of sale. Our intention is to build with the best people and have our company hit the number one ranking in the industry.

With this type of conversation you will begin to gain the attention of this personality type and they are more likely to look more objectively at what you are offering them.

Don’t confuse this people with being too hard and cold and too business oriented these type of people have the potential to build huge organisations and will take all those who put in the effort with them, they are usually great coaches and mentors to those who are willing to do what needs to be done to achieve their goals, a definite asset to you business.

So who do you know that is Driver /Choleric go practice with them , they won’t be backward in telling you what they think you can do, to be the best at what you do.

Yours in Success
