Personality and Transactional Behavior™
Understanding your transactional personality is the first key to achieving your aims—personal and professional.
How does an Inventor influence?
An Inventor personality is often fit to consider the whole environment and articulate ideas and accompanying frameworks that guide their vision. Once equipped with an inventory of aims and resources, they can be observed seeding the targeted social ecology with a vision for the long-term future—and how to shorten the time horizon for that future.

They first enlist the alignment of powerful centers of influence. Then they highlight breakdowns, sharing how their vision about the future will eliminate threats to future aims; they share how this future is made possible with long-term plans and compelling frameworks that produce support and buy-in. They test and hone their ideas with those they seek to influence. They continue to do this with pivotal relationships within the ecology they seek to occupy, build, or maintain.

An Inventor might consider building influence by looking for opportunities to produce the following in the environments they seek to influence:
We caution them not to rush from an idea into action, but instead look for a means to enlist the help of other personalities to fortify their strategies.

They would be wise to enlist Performers to seed the environment with the narratives and relationships required to have their ideas and vision presented to others through compelling invitations.
