Your Secondary Type: Enterprising
Your Role in Life: You are A PERSUADER

Enterprising types typically describe themselves as: adventurous, energetic, optimistic, agreeable, extroverted, popular, sociable, self-confident and ambitious.

Typical strengths: Initiating projects, persuading people, selling things or promoting ideas, organizing activities, leading a group, taking on responsibility.

Like to: Make decisions affecting others, influencing others, meet important people, be elected to an office. They tend to prefer directing others than working on scientific or complicated topics.

Their working style: They prefer to lead a team to achieve a goal, like to learn to focus on the bigger picture and get others to commit to pieces of the plan and are comfortable delegating work. They may be impatient with precise work.

The Enterprising person is often a leader who initiates projects, but often gets others to carry them out instead. Instead of doing research, they may rely on intuition about what will work. They may strike an observer as restless and irresponsible, because they often drop these projects after the job is under way. However, many activities would never get off the ground without their energizing influence. They may focus so dynamically on the project that the personal concerns of others (and even their own) go unnoticed.

They tend to be self-motivated leaders who are talented at organizing, persuading, and managing and use their skills in dealing with people and projects to achieve success. They frequently have a strong sense of importance from being "where the action is."

Typical life goals: Being a community leader. Being well liked and well dressed.

Rewards: The unique reward that the Enterprising type needs is the sense of achievement that comes from making things happen, whether it is conducting sales campaigns, winning an election, or persuading a board of directors to accept new policies.

Sample fields: Financial planning, Entrepreneur, Hotel management, Industrial Engineering, Journalism, Lawyer, Stockbroker, Sports Promotion
Typical Hobbies: Starting own service or business, Campaigning, Leading organizations, Promoting your ideas

1. Artistic (14)
2. Conventional (11)
3. Investigative (4)
4. Enterprising (3)
5. Social (1)
6. Realistic (1)

A-C-I


Your Holland Code Strength Score is 13.00 (scale from 1 to 30)
Your Strength Score measures the strength of distinctiveness of your personality type.


SUMMARY

Your Primary Type: Artistic

Your Role in Life: You are A CREATOR

Artistic types typically describe themselves as: creative, emotional, expressive, imaginative, independent, idealistic, open, original, unconventional and tolerant.

Typical strengths: Seeing new possibilities, thinking creatively, solving problems by creating something new, being imaginative.

Like to: Sketch or draw, attend concerts, theaters, art exhibits, work on crafts, take photographs, work according to their own rules.

Their working style: They prefer a creative approach to problem solving and planning, rely heavily on intuition and imagination and enjoy being given a free reign to discover possible solutions to problems. They express creativity not only with paint and canvas, but with data and systems as well. Those sensitive to sight, sound, and touch will be drawn to the fine arts such as drama, music, and literature. The weaver designs and makes fabric. But the industrialist creates systems for the flow of goods; the program planner creates better delivery service.

Artistic types tend to prefer flexibility and ambiguity, and have an aversion to convention and conformity. They tend to be generally impulsive and emotional, and tend to communicate in a very expressive and open manner.

Ideal work environment: Often are happiest in unstructured situations that offer opportunities for self-expression and using imagination or creativity.

Rewards: The opportunity to create new things and from being around other creative people. Creative co-workers create an atmosphere where this continual striving for innovation is tolerated, even encouraged.

Sample fields: Computer graphics, Theater, Art History, Advertising, Interior Design, Copywriting

Typical life goals: Becoming famous in performing arts, publishing stories, composing music.

Typical Hobbies: Photography, Performing, Writing stories, Sewing, Playing music

Your Secondary Type: Conventional

Role in Life: You are An Organizer

Typical strengths: Working within a system, being organized, keeping accurate records, using a computer.

Like to: Follow clearly defined procedures, work with numbers, be responsible for details, work indoors, organize things.

Their working style: They prefer to have a clear and structured plan and to follow it, pay attention to detail and take pleasure in putting the pieces of the plan together. They prefer highly ordered activities, both verbal and numerical, that characterize office work. They may have little interest in artistic or physical skills.

They prefer highly-ordered activities, both verbal and numerical, characterized often by office work. They tend to fit into large organizations well, but don't seek leadership. They can respond to power and are comfortable working in a well-established chain of command. They dislike ambiguous situations, preferring to know precisely what is expected of them.

They may have a strong need to feel secure and certain, get things finished, attend to every detail, and follow a routine. They usually solve problems by appealing to others and following rules.

Rewards: The rewards that Conventional types focus on are seeing offices and organizations run smoothly, and in understanding how the individvuals' contribution helps in making that happen. People in Conventional jobs are frequently the glue that holds the entire operation together. Because of the nature of their work, they are not always publicly recognized (as much as they should be).

Sample fields: Accounting, Computer Technology, Financial Analyst, Computer Science, Actuary

Typical life goals: Being an expert in finance and commerce, producing a lot of work.

Typical Hobbies: Collecting memorabilia, Arranging and organizing household, Playing computer or card games, Studying tax law, Writing, family history

Wow, I'm surprised of all the information that came back. And it was pretty accurate to boot. Man though, some of those jobs sounded horrifically boring.

I found a pretty cool version of this same instrument (slightly different URL)...


To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 2 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


It allows you to compare your personality type to your job and gives you a score and graph (and sees where you are in your industry compared to other scores).

I scored 11 (which confirms how I feel about my job!).

The helper doesn't sound like me. The thinker was more accurate. I would think my second type would be artistic, because I like to draw and work with design. Oh well.
