Personality

Benny is an introvert who can transition to extrovert when necessary. Benny’s Myer’s Briggs personality assessment switches between INTJ and ISTJ depending on what’s going on in his personal and work life. ISTJs are often called inspectors. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their area of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. INTJs may appear to project an aura of “definiteness”, of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive.

Benny’s dominate DISC profile is ‘Conscientiousness’ where emphasis is on working conscientiously within existing circumstances to ensure quality and accuracy. Secondary DISC profiles in order of importance are 2-Steadiness, 3-Dominance, and 4-Influence.

Additionally, Benny's VOPS profile results indicate he's both a processor and visionary. Having scores for both Processor and Visionary is quite unusual – the Processor and the Visionary don't often make for a common pairing. Processors bring a crucial skill-set to any group or team – they manage risk, provide consistency and grind out the detail. Visionaries possess similar traits: big-thinkers turned on by ideas, they’re easily bored with minutia and are consumed by the need to create and to achieve.

Per above, Benny has the ability to switch between INTJ/ISTJ and Processor/Visionary styles when applicable and necessary.

Myer's Briggs: INTJ/ENTJ


INTJ: As do other Introverted Thinkers, ISTJs often give the initial impression of being aloof and perhaps somewhat cold. Effusive expression of emotional warmth is not something that ISTJs do without considerable energy loss. ISTJs are most at home with “just the facts, Ma'am.” They seem to perform at highest efficiency when employing a step-by-step approach. Once a new procedure has proven itself (i.e., has been shown “to work,”) the ISTJ can be depended upon to carry it through, even at the expense of their own health.

ENTJ: The ENTJ requires little encouragement to make a plan. One ENTJ put it this way… “I make these little plans that really don't have any importance to anyone else, and then feel compelled to carry them out.” While “compelled” may not describe ENTJs as a group, nevertheless the bent to plan creatively and to make those plans reality is a common theme for NJ types. ENTJs are often “larger than life” in describing their projects or proposals. This ability may be expressed as salesmanship, story-telling facility or stand-up comedy. In combination with the natural propensity for filibuster, our hero can make it very difficult for the customer to decline.

Visionary-Operator-Processor-Synergist (VOPS) Personality Styles

Visionary-Operator-Processor-Synergist (VOPS) Personality Styles


Benny's VOPS profile results indicate he's both a processor and visionary. Having scores for both Processor and Visionary is quite unusual – the Processor and the Visionary don't often make for a common pairing.

VOPS Score (out of a possible 960):

Processor : 510
Synergist : 180
Visionary : 150
Operator : 120

Processors

Processors like working at systems and processes – getting things done, crossing them off the task list, making sure loose ends get tied up, but even more importantly, ensuring that activities aren't just one-off events, but are part of an overall process or system.

Processors like lists, checklists and spreadsheets and use productivity tools to make sure you take a structured approach to what you do. You like to bring order to chaos, and controlling risk.

Processors look at those systems and processes from a strategic level – not in isolation, set apart from the organization's overall imperatives, but rather as a strategic whole. This makes Processor great internal consultants.

Primary style – Processors have the following behavioral traits:

  • They value routine.
  • They trust data – and collect a lot of it.
  • They dislike risk.
  • They are wary of intuition and ‘hunch’.
  • They prefer not to be rushed.
  • They tend toward the status quo.

Synergists

The Synergist brings a primary focus on what is best for the enterprise as a whole, and they choreograph and harmonize team or group interactions to produce high-quality decisions. Adding the Synergist style to a group releases it from the gravitational pull of gridlock and compromise, and transforms it into a high-performance team.

Secondary style – Synergist have the following behavioral traits:

  • They have a high degree of EI (emotional intelligence), and are skilled at relating to people and at building strong relationships.
  • They are particularly skilled at understanding and managing the dynamics of group interactions. Not only do they read individuals well, Synergists also read groups well.
  • They ask “What’s best for the group or team overall?” rather than “What’s best for me?”.
