The differences in DISC styles can be recognized in e-mails too. Even though not intended, an e-mail can be perceived differently by other styles. What to take into consideration?
The e-mails can be perceived as short, impersonal and too direct. The D is fast-paced and wants to be efficient.
> Use a salutation, show personal interest, give enough information and the opportunity for questions. Close with a friendly greeting.
The I wants to give a personal touch to e-mails. This can be perceived as irrelevant and can lead to extensive e-mails.
> Stick to the subject, do not use too many words and be restrained with punctuations, pictures, links and smileys/Emoji’s.
The S wants to be friendly and can get too personal too quickly. The S is also hesitant in asking (direct) questions.
> An e-mail can be businesslike and concise. Be specific, clear and not too careful.
The C wants to be as thorough as possible. E-mails easily contain too much information and too much details.
> Do not elaborate too much, extra information can be added in an attachment. Care for a personal note.
