Does Behavioral Profiling label people?
- Yes, but it is not who you are, it’s how you behave in a specific context
- People have behavioral patterns and are much more complex than just a D, I, S or C
- Knowing a persons profile enables you to take advantage of their strengths and be aware of their limitations
