I tend to contribute best to problem solving when I am feeding the process with history, detail, specifics and reality to be considered. I tend to contribute best to problem solving when I am feeding the process with ideas, vision, imagination and "what if" questions.
I like to concentrate on what I'm doing at the moment and generally consider it daydreaming to wonder what comes next. Moreover, I would rather do something than think about it. I find the future and its possibilities intriguing and am generally more excited about where I'm going than where I am.
I find most satisfying those jobs that yield some tangible or quantifiable result. I find most satisfying those jobs that demand imagination and vision to complete - that push me to re-frame and re-create ideas and approaches.
I would rather work with facts and figures than ideas and theories - I consider myself fairly practical. I tend to look for and ask about the connections and interrelatedness behind most things rather than accepting them at face value - I consider myself a big-picture thinker.
At times I am criticized for a lack of vision and imagination, but I know that I am actually a realist, and that is a strength. At times I'm thought of as flighty and lacking practicality, but I know that I am actually a visionary, and that is a strength.
I find it easier to see the individual trees than the forest. At work, for instance, I tend to focus on my own job or department and am less concerned about how this work fits into the larger scheme of things. I find it easier to see the forest than the individual trees. At work, for instance, I tend to focus on trends, new ideas, next steps and patterns - getting rather bored by the actual, finite task at hand.
I like puns and words games and have no trouble using words to convey multiple - even contradictory - meanings simultaneously. I tend to be literal in my use of words, and I hear things literally - often asking, "Are you serious or is that a joke?"
I am quick to notice - and often point out - the error, failing, or opportunity for improvement all in an effort to make you and the end result better. I am quick to notice - and often point out - the point of agreement or appreciation between us in an effort to establish or nurture our relationship.
I prefer harmony to clarity if I cannot have both - in fact, it's not beyond me to gloss over disagreements or differences of opinion to establish or maintain harmony. I prefer clarity to harmony if I cannot have both - in fact, it's not beyond me to argue both sides in a discussion simply to expand my understanding and intellectual horizons.
I think it's more important to be right than liked if both are not possible; it isn't necessary that I like you to do good work with or for you. I think it is more important to be liked than right if both are not possible; it is important that I like you to do good work with or for you.
I would rather be called illogical than insensitive - if I had to choose. I would rather be called insensitive than illogical - if I had to choose.
My best decisions are rooted in cause-effect logic and careful analysis. My best decisions are sensitively considered and reflective of the values with which I want to be associated.
I won't hesitate to take back something I've said that I perceive has offended someone. I would rather maintain a harmonious connection than emphasize whatever differences there may be between us. I am more firm-minded than gentle-hearted. If I disagree with people, I would rather tell them than say nothing and let them think something untrue.
I pride myself on objectivity, my ability to step back and dispassionately decide even tangled, murky issues. I pride myself on my ability to take others' feelings and views into account when making decisions I make.
I don't believe that neatness counts, and I don't care whether things are put away or scattered about. What's more important is creativity, spontaneity and responsiveness. I have a place for everything, and I'm not satisfied until everything is in its place.
I don't like to be pinned down about most things - I'd rather keep my options open. I thrive on order and have a special system for keeping things on my desk, in my files and on my walls.
I like to be prompted by the pressure of the last minute when I get spurts of focus, drive and energy to meet deadlines. I like to start working toward goals and tasks early to avoid the stress of a last minute rush.
I frequently find myself waiting for others, who never seem to be on time. I am easily distracted and can get lost between the front door and the car.
I readily drop or amend lists to adapt to and take advantage of new options or opportunities. I keep lists and use them. If I do something that's not on my list, I may even add it to the list just so I can cross it off.
I believe in working first and playing later and that even play - when I get to it, should be organized and structured. I turn most work into play - most things worth doing are worth having fun doing.
I don't plan tasks but wait and see what is demanded and what I feel like doing. I tend to get irritated if I am too bound by schedules and plans. I wake up in the morning knowing fairly well what my day is going to be like. I have a schedule, work to follow it and tend to get irritated if things don't go as planned.
