Everything DiSC® - Interaction Between Styles: (C)onscientious with (C)onscientious

As a C (Conscientious) style, you thrive on ensuring accuracy, maintaining stability, and challenging assumptions.  The C style is motivated by opportunities to use expertise or gain knowledge combined with attention to quality. 

The C observes others with the C style as:

  • Logical
  • Systematic
  • Reliable
  • Analytical

Interaction Between DiSC Styles:  D (Dominant) with C (Conscientious)
The C is motivated by opportunities to use expertise or gain knowledge while providing attention to quality and accuracy.  NOTE:  When it comes to PACE and PRIORITY, the C has a more cautious, reserved pace as compared to the faster, assertive PACE of the D.  This subtle difference in PACE may require a little “stretch” in certain interactions.  The C has an objective, task-oriented PRIORITY similar to the D.
