Tomorrow we will look at how S Personalities experience quarantine from the perspective of Jamie Parler.


Thanks for the privilege to serve!

We continue with Day 4 in how DISC personalities experience being quarantined personally and with those they are being quarantined together with at home. 


Each day we are looking at a couple of my team members, Jamie Parler and Barbara Valerioti, who wrote interesting insights to me that I want to share with you. I continue to want to emphasize that we don’t want to trivialize the situation but all of us need a smile or two these days. And with most of us confined to our homes it will be a good time to learn how people think and process through the lens of their personalities.


We are rotating each day between Jamie and Barbara and what they wrote for each DISC personality. On the 9th day, I will write and let you know my thoughts and how I have interacted as a spiker D personality with family, co-workers, friends, acquaintances, and strangers through the last few weeks. On day 10 I want to give you a few words on hope and encouragement as we go through this experience together.

From Barbara Valerioti:

Serving Him Together,

At the first signs of quarantine, the I Personality is ready to gear up for the thrilling experience that awaits them. I’s don’t shy away from a new situation and this will energize them to think they’ll have a group to inspire and encourage during the quarantine. They’ll be sensitive to the mood of the group and will use that sensitivity to inspire them. Not being known for being a planner, the I will benefit from having a C on his side to keep on their side to keep them on task.


If the excitement of inspiring the group wanes, and it will, they will likely flit to the next crisis (no doubt a shortage of something important like food or whatever it is at the time). If the quarantine is short-lived the I will be ok, but if it’s a lengthy internment, the I with their weak-will spirit, will likely flounder. Because I Personalities tend to accept people for who they are they likely can meet the needs of everyone in the group during the quarantine. Because I’s love being unrestrained, the idea of captivity like a quarantine may be difficult for this personality who isn’t governed by rules and regulations.
