Someone who is using his or her Strength of Command will rarely go unnoticed. Just their presence demands attention. They take charge, do what needs to be done and are not afraid of confrontation.
How do they think?
People with high Command see no point in beating around the bush and feel like it’s essential to get their opinion across because it allows them to bring to light what may be normally avoided or misstated which in their mind is necessary.
How do they feel?
Individuals with command naturally are confrontational. They feel like confrontation will lead to resolution of conflicts and misunderstandings and aren’t afraid to be seen as the “bad guy”. Challenging people is the way they feel brings honesty and clarity.
How do they behave?
Those with high command are natural leaders and typically take control of situations. They are good at persuasion and bringing up the hard issues. You will often see them speaking up and not afraid to share their opinion which may be seen as intimidating to others because of the confidence and passion they exude. The gift in that is that they often push others to take risks and people look to them as someone that will take a stand and lead them.
