Four Primary Characteristics
1. In the
workplace, you are reserved & introspective
and most likely:
- Think about what you are
going to say before you say it, and wish that others would
do the same. You may tell others that you "need time
to think about their proposal".
- Have a high level of concentration,
require quiet time for yourself, and do not appreciate having
this time invaded by others.
- Are willing to listen to
others, but get annoyed when you are not given the same
- Are sometimes perceived
by others as shy or aloof; and although you may not agree,
others may see you as distant and reflective.
- Get agitated when others
say what you were going to say or interrupt you, and you
wish you were more commanding in those situations.
- Need alone time to be refreshed,
after having to socialize, talk, or meet with others. The
more intense the interaction, the more likely you will need
- Mean what you say and say
what you mean, and you get wary if people are too flattering
or aggravated if someone repeats what has already been said.
are idealistic & theoretical
and most likely:
- Find that repetitive detail-oriented
tasks are a fast track to boredom.

in understanding how things are related and interconnected.
You see few things as self-evident, always ready to pose
the question, "What does that mean"?
- Are inclined to give broad
answers to questions, and non-specific instructions to tasks
you want carried out. In your mind, you may think everyone

having to make difficult decisions.

regardless of your personal differences.

if there is logical and relevant evidence to back it up.
- Are more unyielding than
softhearted when discussing a matter you do not agree with.
- Can take either side of
a misunderstanding and give a convincing argument. (Just
another chance to use your thinking).
- Are more concerned with
being just and straightforward when you have a difference
of opinion, than spending effort on making people happy.
- Find it possible to remain
impartial and composed in scenarios when others get emotional.
Even though others often mistakenly view this as insensitive
4. You are structured

- Have a place for everything
and are not satisfied until everything is where it belongs.

on your walls, and in your files.

the world would be a better place if everyone would simply
do what they're supposed to do, when their supposed to do
- Have your days scheduled
and planned out before they start, and can get unnerved
when things don't go as planned.

that you don't like surprises.
- Make lists to stay structured,
and cross things off as they are accomplished.
- Have been accused of being
angry when you are only expressing your opinion.

to completion and get them out of the way, even if you know
you're going to have to do it over again later to get it
Mary as a Developer
Developer at work, Mary,
you can succeed in nearly any occupation you choose, as long
as it doesn't involve too much monotonous routine, at which
point you likely become restless. You are excellent at contributing
to innovative projects that test your ingenuity; and you excel
at using your ability to see possibilities and analyzing them
to logically solve problems. Clearly, any project that gives
you an opportunity to learn, and use your creative impulse seems
very worthwhile. However, you can lose much of your energy for
a project when faced with following through with the tedious
details. You can almost always find a logical reason for the
things that you want, and because of your keen awareness and
logic, you can easily see the flaw in any opposing position.
In fact, little challenges your patience more than inefficiency,
incompetence and disorder.
fitting" job for you, Mary, might be one that provides
independence, diversity, plenty of intellectual stimulation,
and the opportunity to generate ideas. You must find your work
challenging to be satisfying, and you are demanding of yourself
and others. Since you can be impatient with those whom you consider
less competent then you, you need to be surrounded by those
you respect intellectually. Developers
have insight into the internal logic and underlying principles
of systems and organizations, and they excel at (and enjoy)
strategizing, planning, and building systems to accomplish their
you can be too complex for others to understand. Your intense
dislike for the routine and the predictable can make it difficult
for you to notice necessary details. You often fail to see your
rich imagination, when left unbridled, can make you counterproductive.
Also, you may rather talk about, write about, or improve the
concepts of team building, goal setting, and time management,
rather than actually being a part of them. Your constant drive
for improving everything you come in contact with can be very
frustrating for those that think everything is just fine as
it is. Finally, when working on a project, it may go against
your nature to consult others, but resist the temptation to
disregard authority and make critical decisions on your own.
