Four types of people have likely reactions to change, which may need to be resisted or avoided. These are the analytical person – uses lots of detail but is not good at deciding what to do; the controller – sees the big picture and stays detached; the enthusiast –overreacts one way or the other and is not great at planning or fact gathering; and the amiable – feels hurt, worried, or not good at taking risks.
- The way you deal with change will vary…depending on the type of person you are.…And by the way, we all have elements of these types.…Everyone must be somewhere on the spectrum…between introvert and extrovert,…and somewhere on the scale from logical to emotional.…Some of us have the ability to think in a variety of ways,…and they'd be somewhere in the middle,…but many of us have become quite fixed in our ways,…and we're more out to the edges of the diagram.…So let's have a look at how you might best deal with change.…
First, Analytical people are the quiet,…logical, thinking types.…They will generate lots of options, mostly bad,…and then struggle to make decisions about what to do.…They fear loss of knowledge when change happens,…so they tend to be quietly obstructive…or just stay in denial, just carrying on…with their daily activities, until it's too late for them.…If you're an Analytical type, then it's best to use…your logical brain to plan for the coming of change.…Planning is your strong point.…
