People with the C style place an emphasis on working conscientiously within existing circumstances to ensure quality and accuracy.

A person with a C style:

  • prioritizes ensuring accuracy, maintaining stability, and challenging assumptions
  • is described as careful, cautious, systematic, diplomatic, accurate and tactful
  • may be limited by being overcritical, overanalyzing and isolating themselves
  • may fear criticism and being wrong
  • values quality and accuracy


  • objective processes
  • correctness
  • stability and reliability
