Unflappable

What one word best describes your DMing style? I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours!

Talk about this column here.

Chris mentions one of his pet peeves used to be the players not taking the bait.  His eventual response was to simply wing it.  

That's something that I can relate to and something that has influenced my DMing style the most.  I've learned the players won't always go *forward*, sometimes they go off to the side or even go back.  So as DM, I've learned the value of being willing and able to say "Okay, let's see what happens" ;).

This simple phrase really helps me acknowledge the possibilities for the game.  I think I'm a better DM for it.
