Reactive Tendencies: Protecting

This summary dimension measures the belief that the leader can protect himself/herself and establish a sense of worth through withdrawal, remaining distant, hidden, aloof, cynical, superior, and/or rational. It is composed of:
  • Arrogance measures the leader’s tendency to project a large ego––behavior that is experienced as superior, egotistical, and self-centered.
  • Critical is a measure of the leader’s tendency to take a harshly critical, questioning, and cynical attitude.
  • Distance is a measure of the leader’s tendency to establish a sense of personal worth and security through withdrawal, being superior and remaining aloof, emotionally distant and above it all.
