Strengthening Relationships Through Understanding from PeopleKeys, DISCinsights, and the Institute for Motivational Living
Sometimes it is difficult to recognize when love and affection are being shown to you by others, mainly when their style of showing and receiving love is different from your own. A D-Style may launch into action, solving problems and spending their time working hard to provide for their loved ones. However, if their S-Style partner is longing for quality time, they may feel neglected as a result. By understanding how both you and your partner show and receive love, you can begin to recognize gestures of love that you had never noticed before. Below is a brief breakdown of the D, I, S, and C styles. For a more in-depth analysis, refer to the relationship report.
Is your partner a D-Style?
A D-Style is likely to show their love in a tangible way (problem solving, providing, giving you experiences or gifts). A D-Style is likely to want to receive love through supportive gestures and appreciative words.
Is your partner an I-Style?
An I-Style is likely to show their love through verbal and physical expression, making you smile, and having fun, shared experiences. They likely want to be shown love in a similar way.
Is your partner an S-Style?
An S-Style is likely to show their love through spending quality time with you, listening, being supportive, and through verbal and physical affection. They likely want to be shown love in a similar way.
Is your partner a C-Style?
A C-Style is likely to show their love in a tangible way, helping you with daily tasks, taking care of something for you, or perhaps offering a new system by which to accomplish a task. They will help you with information, examining a problem closer, and being a good listener. They likely are looking for an appreciation for their efforts and systems, and appreciate being shown love also through supportive tasks and kind gestures.
