What’s Your Personality Type?

The other day I was asked if I was available to respond to an article that would air on the radio…..If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you know my philosophy is to be prepared and accept the challenge. So of course I said “Yes!” without hesitation. One radio interview turned into 11 and it was so much fun.

One of the things I observed were the different personalities within each interview. Of course, since the interviews were nationally broadcasted, you could say that the differences were geographical in nature, but I’m not sure about that.

Here is what I found. Being “connected” to the station for the interview- There would either be a few minutes to talk to the host and chat and build a little rapport OR I heard “You are live in 3-2-1”
Which is the most opportune style for you? I know what works for me.

The other major difference was the end of the interview….I would hear “Thank you so much for being on my show!” OR CLICK! and silence on the other end! Again, different strokes for different folks.

Whether your moving through things on “auto-pilot” at your job, interacting with the person ringing you up at the grocery store, or passing a stranger walking opposite directions those micro interactions can speak volumes and make (or break) someone’s day. To quote The Sayings of Chairman Malcolm – “You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them.”

All in all, the experience was great and I just roll with the punches. My biggest take away is again is:

  • Be prepared
  • Take chances
  • And finally, be grateful for every opportunity that comes your way!

I am humbled by the requests I get and love to share my message with you.
Happy Selling!
