Dominance does not equate to aggression

What is interesting about this video is that it mentions that someone being dominant does not mean that the person has to be aggressive. I remember that I was one of the two Ds in the group when I did the DISC test many years back. Immediately, I felt that it created a certain impression of me in the group. Yet sometimes at a workplace, those who are aggressive can be the less dominant ones, attacking someone due to their insecurities then making it look as if someone else is the bad guy. Not sure if anyone else has the same experience.

Hi, I am Benjamin. I am a Singaporean son, born and bred. I came from a modest background, just like most Singaporeans and went to mainstream schools like most middle-class Singaporeans. What makes me different is my unconventional choices and journey in life, giving me more profound insights. Entering a secondary school infested with secret societies in the earlier days exposed me to a different side of Singapore. I graduated well despite having a volatile phase. I chose one of the youngest polytechnics despite having a score good enough for JC, even as others tell me it is not recognised, and I would not make it into university through that path. During my National Service, I also went through a difficult phase of rediscovering the purpose of serving. My university was another defining chapter, spanning over nine years, involving many adventures and endeavours. As you can see, I seldom bother myself with dogmas. I strongly believe in Steve Job's speech at Stanford University. I hope to lead others by example, inspire them to do the same and empower the decisions they have to make in their lives. Reach me at
