What Your Social Sharing Says About Your Behavior Style

The ubiquitous BuzzFeed quizzes. If you’ve ever spent any time on a social media site, then you’ve probably seen them.

Are you more a Marcia or a Jan? Are you more Batman or Superman? What does your favorite breakfast food say about you? While we can’t tell you what kind of a mythical creature you are, your social sharing habits might just reveal a little something about your Behavior Style.

Do you tend to:

  • Share lots of photos of yourself — and be sure to untag yourself from the ones you feel are unflattering?
  • Post frequently, often sharing optimistic, upbeat quotes?
  • Comment on others’ posts, actively engage people and let them freely comment on yours?
  • Send friend or connection requests when you meet someone new?

If these social sharing habits sound like you, then you might be a Talker.

Do you tend to:

  • Highlight your important achievements and big wins?
  • Engage in lively, sometimes controversial discussion threads without shying away from conflict?

  • Do the research to clearly understand how the site will collect, store and use your data and social posts?

If these social sharing habits sound like you, then you might be a Controller.

It’s fun to know what kind of dessert matches your personality, but sometimes you want something a little more substantial in an online quiz. Our Behavior Styles Assessment can teach you more about your behavioral style and how it influences your business and personal relationships.
