Each Behavior Style makes an impact. We need to know our impact so we can positively impact communication with others. The following are typical perceptions of Analyzers from the 4 Behavior Styles.

From a Controller

“I appreciate that what Analyzers tell you will be accurate and can be substantiated with backup materials if you need to see them. However, they take too long and need too much data to make a decision. Analyzers do not see the big picture-they micro­manage.”

From a Stabilizer

“It is great that Analyzers gather information and data, use process and stick to a task until it is done. However, they do not take enough time for relationship building. They seem to want things too perfect and always want to follow the rules.”

From an Analyzer

“Analyzers are consistent and predictable. You know their work is factual and based upon a logical approach. However, when frustrated they can become obsessive and when emotions enter in, they overreact.”

From a Persuader

“The Analyzers are very thorough and meticulous, so their work is organized and looks good. However, they seem to always want to be ‘right’ and have a narrow point of view. Analyzers are too quiet, you never know what they think or feel.”

Intent vs. Impact Words

Individuals with any Style preference can have either a negative or positive impact, depending on their levels of levels of trust and credibility with the other person, their relational history, and the context of the interaction. It is important to remember that you can always modify your behavior to have a more positive impact in any interaction.
