    Re: taking a low profile

    To take a low profile means to behave in a manner that does not attract attention.
    To take a high profile is the exact opposite.

    Re: taking a low profile

    I thought it was "keep"/"maintain" or "adopt" a low/high profile.
    Is "take" commonly used?

    Keep is more common in use. Take is 'slangish'.
