Assessment Result: CONSISTENT
Consistent personalities display a controlled stance and a modest demeanor and will usually get along well with most others. They are considerate and patient and always willing to help anyone that they consider a friend. Consistents will ultimately build strong relationships within a small group of associates. They are routine-oriented and reliable in their approach to day-to-day assigned tasks. They can be good problem solvers by providing easier solutions.
Consistents are slow to adapt to change. They much prefer things to stay the same or “consistent” in their work and home life. Although they are routine-oriented, you will need to provide deadlines for them or they will have a tendency to procrastinate, especially if it is a task they don’t want to do or is new to them. They will need a fair amount of help when starting any new project. Even though they are capable of finding easier solutions, they miss smaller details that could affect the outcome. To keep them feeling secure in their current position, they may require a lot of reassurance.
