High Dominance individuals are often confident in their abilities and are comfortable taking charge of situations. They are likely to express their opinions and make decisions without hesitating. This assertiveness can be an asset in leadership roles, as they are more inclined to guide and direct others.

An internal locus of control refers to the belief that individuals have a significant influence on their own lives and outcomes through their actions and decisions. People high in Dominance tend to possess this internal locus of control, meaning they believe that their efforts and choices have a direct impact on their success or failure.

Conversely, people low in Dominance may exhibit an external locus of control, which means they believe external factors like luck, fate, or other people have a more significant influence on their outcomes. This perspective may lead them to be more collaborative and team-oriented, as they may feel that their individual actions have less impact on their results.

Those with dominant traits are often drawn to leadership roles (although it is not a deciding factor if they will be successful), as they naturally feel comfortable in positions where they can lead and guide others. Their assertiveness and desire for control make them effective leaders in settings that require decision-making, direction, and delegation.

People high in Dominance typically prefer to have autonomy and control over their work and tasks. They are more likely to take initiative and prefer to work independently, where they can set their own goals and work methods.

Dominance traits can also manifest in a willingness to take risks. High Dominance individuals may be more inclined to pursue ambitious goals, even in the face of uncertainty or potential setbacks.

Those with lower Dominance traits may excel in roles that require teamwork and cooperation. They may be more comfortable following the lead of others and contributing to a collective effort.

Individuals with lower Dominance may be more flexible and adaptable in their approaches, as they are less focused on asserting control. This adaptability can be valuable in situations that require quickly responding to changing circumstances.

Understanding Dominance traits can be useful for personal development, team dynamics, and leadership effectiveness. By recognizing these traits in oneself and others, individuals can tailor their communication and interactions to achieve more harmonious and productive outcomes.
