What Does Birkman Measure?
Usual Behavior drives how people perceive us, both at work and in our personal lives. This facet of our personality represents how we are typically most productive, how others see us, and what we look like when our lives are in balance.
Your Usual Behavior reflects your natural strengths and keeps you motivated when successfully applied in the workplace. When your social expectations are not met, you’re at heightened risk of entering Stress Behaviors and becoming unproductive.
When Usual Behaviors are in contrast with the oppositional workstyles of others, the interpersonal dynamics that result are a common source of misunderstanding, misperception, and conflict.
Needs and Stress Behavior
Our Needs reflect the social expectations we consider truth. Highly individual, Needs can vary greatly among any group of people. They represent how we perceive the world, how others should treat us, and the work environment in which we are at balance, motivated, and effective.
Stress Behavior represents the most ineffective aspects of individual personality. When our Needs go broadly unmet, our reactions to work and social environments are less likely to be productive and more likely to lead to failure and conflict. Understanding the underlying causes and manifestation of Stress behavior helps us self-manage and increase our emotional intelligence to be more effective.
Interests reflect the activities you naturally gravitate towards and enjoy. At work, engaging your interests can motivate and keep you productive. When you spend time on your interests outside of work, you feel more balanced and energized when you return to your job.
Interests can influence what team members prioritize and the perceptions of how coworkers focus time and energy, leading to behavior consequences. We measure ten Interests including Outdoor, Scientific, Technical, Persuasive, Social Service, Artistic, Literary, Musical, Administrative, and Numerical, helping you connect each of these to occupational data that can increase your success.
