The SOCIAL STYLE model is a four-quadrant behavioral preferences model identifying people’s behavioral preferences. Globally, millions of people have completed SOCIAL STYLE Profiles, allowing them to identify their own SOCIAL STYLE. People were able to measure their own overall interpersonal effectiveness compared to others, known as Versatility.
