We continue with Day 5 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 of hope and encouragement as we go through this experience together.

Tomorrow we will look at how S Personalities experience quarantine from the perspective of Barbara Valerioti.


Thanks for the privilege to serve!

​I’m not really sure what to think about all of this. I sure hate it for all the people that are sick. The numbers of confirmed cases are staggering and hope we are able to “flatten the curve” in time so we can prevent unnecessary sickness and death. It’s going to take me some time to adjust to my schedule. I’m not real sure what to do first but I will get around to making it work eventually. I want to stay in touch with my friends and family and hope everyone is doing okay.


I didn’t like the idea of being quarantined at first but I getting use to it. I enjoy being with my family and not being in such a hurry. If anyone needs my help I’m happy to help, just let me know what I can do.

Serving Him Together,
