How is your personality type affecting your funding goals? And what adjustments and partnerships do you need to create to become successful? Most of us seem to fall under 4 main categories.
Action – Natural Salesperson, Go getter, Closer
Emotional – Creative, Introspective, Bonding, Inspired
Practical – Logistics, proof, evidence, planning
Social – Master of the Rolex, networking, connecting people
From a scale from 1-10 give a number to each personality type.
Here is mine.
Practical – 8
Action – 6
Social – 5
Based on my own assessment I personally need to connect emotionally to a screenplay, director, key crew, “the vision” in order to be on my A game. I need to see concept art, mood reel, a spec poster, actors palette.
But I also need practical materials to feel confident. All my ducks have to be in order; pitch deck, business plan, budget, projections, estimates, research, data, etc.
I do also recognize my weaknesses. Action will always triumphs planning. At some point to you need make those cold calls, emails, and accomplish a massive to do list. GET THINGS DONE!
Social engagement has always been challenging for me. I dread small talk since I like deep profound conversations. I have noticed that when I am in film industry event I tend to open up and become way more receptive but how many lost opportunities have I missed because I couldn’t start a simple conversation outside my circle?
That being said I know exactly where I need to focus my attention and start developing more relationships and take massive action daily. I have made it a habit this year to have phone calls everyday with filmmakers I have never meet. Just talking shop.
