My GM is requesting all of our agents to take a brief personality profile. So, what does this fact have to do with why my Active Rain outside blog is so important to me? The answer to that question is revealed in the results of my test.
My score showed me to be an Amiable Analytic. Analytic is the dominant style with amiable being secondary. According to my GM, I'm a number cruncher who's good at paperwork; plus, my amiable overlay means I like to keep everyone happy. I think these traits are important for my short sale and foreclosure business specialization.
What's my weakness? As you may have guessed, I tend to over-analyze and under-act. The lesson learned is that I need to be more proactive in making contact with prospects so that my analytic style will help them solve their problems and keep them smiling.
So, why is my Active Rain outside blog so important to me? AR puts me in a social networking environment where I can tell my story to a lot of real estate pros and consumers. AR paves the way and lets my readers get to know me first before they decide to contact me. I believe this is a good strategy and I'm grateful to have a venue like AR to reach out to potential clients.
But, I really need to be more active in pressing the flesh with folks I know and don't know. At least I know what I've always suspected about myself. And that's a good thing.
I'm glad I took the test.
