Personal Thinking Styles

25

Identify your primary and backup thinking styles: What are your “primary” (highest percentile score) and “backup” (second highest percentile) personal thinking styles as shown in your circumplex? Discuss how your primary and backup personal styles are manifested in your life and work (see the LSI Self Development Guide online). Using the style interpretations in the LSI Guide, describe the styles and give your perceptions about the results. Do you agree or disagree with them and why?

Identify your limiting style: Identify and illustrate one style you think might be working against you to reduce your overall effectiveness. Name the style you have chosen, make a few remarks about why you are choosing this style as limiting your professional effectiveness in organizations.

Select one behavior associated with this style that you think you would like to change and the difference it will make. Be sure to support your interpretation with examples, etc.

LSI Style Interpretations: Go to the LSI1 Results page, find your circumplex profile, and click on the circumplex “slice” of one of the styles. The site will bring you to a customized interpretation of the style you clicked on. Click on each of the 12 “slices” to see all of the customized style description pages.

Impact on Management Style

35

What impact do your personal styles have on your management style? Explore and assess the impact of your personal styles on your effectiveness as a manager in terms of the four functions of management:

a. Planning;

b. Organizing;

c. Leading; and

d. Controlling.

If you are currently not a manager, assume you are and predict your effectiveness as such.

Genesis of Personal Style

35

Critically evaluate and explain on how you developed the personal styles that were revealed in your LSI. What role, for example, did family relationships, school, organizational memberships, culture, etc. have in shaping your personal style?

Conclusion and Reflection

25

Think about your LSI results and your responses to the above questions. Summarize any concluding comments. Close your paper with a statement of at least one question or goal you hope your work in MGMT591 will help you to address and comment with a few sentences to describe the value of this exercise to your personal and professional development.

Please note: The LSI Self-Development Guide is integrated into the LSI1 Participant account, and is available after you complete the LSI Survey and have access to your results. In-depth and personalized style descriptions can be found by clicking on the style “slices” of the circumplex. For example, if you would like to learn more about the Humanistic-Encouraging style (Style 1), you simply click on the circumplex “slice” for that style. The same goes for the other 11 styles.

You can find the Challenge of Change and the Self-Improvement Plan information by using two of the additional links that become available in you LSI online account after the survey is complete. These links are “The Challenge of Change” and “Your Self-Improvement Plan.” Good luck with the exercise!

 

MY LSI RESULTS ARE LISTED BELOW

 

 

 

Your LSI Styles Profile

 

The raw and percentile scores in the table below and the extensions on the circumplex shown below depict your perceptions of how you think and behave.

 

The CONSTRUCTIVE Styles (11, 12, 1, and 2 o’clock positions) reflect self-enhancing thinking and behavior that contribute to one’s level of satisfaction, ability to develop healthy relationships and work effectively with people, and proficiency at accomplishing tasks.

 

The PASSIVE/DEFENSIVE Styles (3, 4, 5, and 6 o’clock positions) represent self-protecting thinking and behavior that promote the fulfillment of security needs through interaction with people.

 

The AGGRESSIVE/DEFENSIVE Styles (7, 8, 9, and 10 o’clock positions) describe self-promoting thinking and behavior used to maintain status/position and fulfill security needs through task-related activities.

The raw scores potentially range from 0 to 40. The percentile scores represent your results compared to those of 9,207 individuals who previously completed the Life Styles Inventory. For example, a percentile score of 75 means that you scored higher along a particular position than 75% of the other respondents in the sample and, in turn, indicates that the style represented by that position is strongly descriptive of you. In contrast, a score of 25 means that you scored higher than only about 25% of the other respondents and therefore indicates that the style represented by that position is not very descriptive of you.
