Personality style. It’s the primary driving force behind human behavior. Knowing its ins and outs sheds light on just about everything people do, from leadership to communicating with others to being a team player.

Understanding how personality style works is very simple. In fact, it all boils down to assertiveness and expressiveness, two fundamental behaviors that combine in varying degrees to formulate four basic personality styles: Direct, Spirited, Considerate, and Systematic.
