Is your best friend an "S" personality type?
Best friends allow us to be who we truly are and support us through our celebrations and our sorrows. When choosing a best friend, you probably want someone who will be just as likely to join you on a crazy adventure as someone who will give you a shoulder to cry on. Their versatility and go-with-the-flow attitude make them ideal candidates for a guest-starring role in almost any situation.
An S may be a perfect choice for any DISC profile for the following reasons:
They Are Flexible Oftentimes, an S will allow you to take the lead when making decisions about what to do, where to go, and which weekend getaway to book for a special event. Because the S personality values your friendship and close connections above all else, they will often agree to just about any plans. To them, it is all about who they are with, not what they are doing. Don’t forget to take plenty of pictures for Instagram! They love making memories.
Undying Loyalty The S personality believes in forever friends, so even if you don’t see each other often, they know that your friendship is just as strong as ever. When many friends drift apart over the years as your lives take different paths, your S best friend will be there for you because of the time and energy you have invested over the years. That is not to say that they will stand for being ignored or brushed off, but they will allow some leeway when it comes to time in between.
Fiercely Protective When you need an ally, your S friend is the go-to person to enlist! While they often seem soft-spoken on the outside, they are rabidly protective of their loves ones and will do battle if anyone crosses you. Because of their typically introspective nature, they may let their revenge simmer before taking action. Often the longer they simmer, the sharper they sting. Even if you are the one who is wrong, your loyal S friend will take your side out of principle.
Intensely Perceptive You may not see your current situation clearly, but your bestie will see all angles and provide excellent advice when you are stuck. You can trust them implicitly because they would never do anything to jeopardize your cherished friendship. You should listen with an open mind; they may see what you cannot. Not only do they have the gift to see all perspectives, they will likely know what you will do about it before you do!
Care for Your "S" BFF Having an S as a best friend is invaluable and not something to be taken lightly. Be sure to treat them with the care and respect they deserve. They do not ask for much, which is why they should receive an abundance of appreciation, plenty of praise, and your undivided attention.
