The Four SOCIAL STYLEs are the Driving Style, the Expressive Style, the Amiable Style, and the Analytical Style. TRACOM created the SOCIAL STYLE Model based on the four unique Styles, with each having different ways of using time and predictable ways of interacting and making decisions. With the SOCIAL STYLEs assessment, you can observe a person and determine their preferences or Style. You can then use that information to moderate your behavior and make that person more comfortable. This is called Versatility.
People with a Driving SOCIAL STYLE are seen by others as direct, active, forceful and determined. They initiate social interaction and they focus their efforts and the efforts of others on the goals and objectives they wish to get accomplished.
People with an Expressive Style tend to be more willing to make their feelings known to others. They can appear to react impulsively and openly show both positive and negative feelings. They are typically described by others as personable, talkative and sometimes opinionated.
People with an Amiable Style openly display their feelings to others. They appear less demanding and generally more agreeable than others. They are interested in achieving a rapport with others who often describe them as informal, casual and easy going.
People with an Analytical SOCIAL STYLE are typically described by others as quiet, logical and sometimes reserved or cautious. They tend to appear distant from others and may not communicate unless there is a specific need to do so.
Of the most common interpersonal skills models, only SOCIAL STYLE is based on observable behaviors and not personality. Learn why this approach to improving communication is the most effective.
SOCIAL STYLE is the only model that shows the differences between people and measures how effective you are at communicating to other people the way they prefer to be communicated with: this is called Versatility.

The facilitators found that while participants in each program held positive reactions to training; participants in the SOCIAL STYLE training scored significantly higher than did participants in the DiSC and MBTI programs on a learning measure; and participants in the SOCIAL STYLE training scored significantly higher than did participants in the DiSC and MBTI programs.
What makes the SOCIAL STYLE Model unique AND effective? Behavior. SOCIAL STYLEs is NOT a “personality” program like Myers-Briggs; it’s founded on valid and proven research and the focus on Observable Behaviors – how people Think, Act and React. The power of SOCIAL STYLE happens we come to understand ourselves through the eyes of others, learn to modify our actions to better match others needs, and observe again and again how relationships, communication, and influence with others improves.Better than Competitors
Because SOCIAL STYLE is based on observable behavior you can quickly identify a person’s preferences and make informed choices to make that person comfortable. This ability to moderate your behavior is what we call Versatility. The SOCIAL STYLEs Assessment measures Versatility so people can understand their strengths and weaknesses when working with others. And SOCIAL STYLE training teaches specific techniques to improve Versatility with people of each Style.
