DiSC Influence (i) Profile Overview

If you are MIM® Certified and have undertaken the Best Practice in IT Major Incident Management Training, then you will have completed a DiSC® profile assessment. Your report has a much more detailed and personalized explanation of what having an I style means for you. 

People with the i style place an emphasis on shaping the environment by influencing or persuading others.

A person with an i style:

  • is described as convincing, magnetic, enthusiastic, warm, trusting and optimistic
  • prioritizes taking action, collaboration, and expressing enthusiasm
  • is motivated by social recognition, group activities, and relationships
  • may fear loss of influence, disapproval and being ignored
  • values coaching and counselling, freedom of expression and democratic relationships
  • may be limited by being impulsive and disorganized and having lack of follow-through


  • victory with flair
  • friendship and happiness
  • authority and prestige status symbols
  • popularity

Will need to expend more energy to:

  • research all the facts
  • speak directly and candidly
  • stay focused for long periods
  • follow-through completely

When communicating with i-style individuals, share your experiences, allow them time to ask questions and talk themselves. Focus on the positives, avoid overloading them with details, and don't interrupt them.

Leadership styles: Energizing, Pioneering, Affirming
