Use of Time – The Supportive Disposition: “My time is for helping others!”

Different Dispositions use time in different ways. If you want to develop harmonious relationships with your family members, co-workers, students or others you interact with, you will want to know how they use time.

People with this interactive Disposition have an “outside-in” view of how to use time. They look outside themselves to the needs of others to determine how to use their time. They care for and help others as well as create cooperation, harmony and community among people. For them, making sure others are taken care of and have what they need is often more important than taking care of their own responsibilities.

These people lose track of time when connecting with and helping others. Sometimes, wanting to be helpful, they miss the mark entirely by giving help where it isn’t wanted. They will skip an appointment to help a friend in need.

Some people who like being looked after, see Supportive Disposition people as generous and great friends who are always there for them. Others would appreciate it if Supportive Disposition people spent their time minding their own business and taking care of themselves.

They make great team members for creating cohesiveness, harmony and cooperation in a group.

If you have a Supportive Disposition yourself, knowing your default setting for your use of time can lead to a better understanding of yourself and help you to devise strategies for those times when you need some self-care.

If you have Supportive Disposition people in your life, knowing their default setting for their use of time can lead to more understanding, better communication, and increased ability to get along.
