RESPONSIVE Being Responsive means you respond to inner urges, and to opportunities in the world around you. Overview Expand You’re motivated by how you want to feel, more than by future achievement. You work in bursts, driven by inner desires or outer deadlines. You focus on keeping options open, and avoiding details. You do what’s important to you, rather than what’s expected of you. You make decisions as you go along. Advantages Expand The advantage of being Responsive is you do what you enjoy. Because you’re satisfied with your accomplishments, you feel free to follow whatever interests you. You can easily change direction when needed. Letting go of details can help you see what’s more important. You find shortcuts for unnecessary requirements. You’re able to make quick decisions, even when there isn’t much time or information. Challenges Expand The challenge of being Responsive can be accomplishing less, and encountering more problems. Without many goals, there may not be a strong sense of purpose. Changing direction means not finishing some tasks – even ones you really want to. Lack of structure may waste time and energy. Shortcuts can be disruptive to systems or people. You may not foresee consequences of decisions.
