Determined Realists like you want to bear responsibility and welcome challenges. You are a stable and reliable person. External contacts are very important to you; you mix well and you are very active. You are an excellent organiser and you are very happy when things are done correctly and punctually; you can quickly react impatiently if others are not as conscientious, orderly and dutiful as you are. You prefer structured work which produces visible results quickly to abstract, long-drawn-out processes. Determined Realists have no problem with routine as long as it serves efficiency. However, you very much dislike unexpected and unpredictable occurrences which mess up your careful plans. Once you have committed yourself to a cause you do this with dedication and you are willing to make considerable sacrifices for it.
Determined Realists do not avoid conflicts and criticism but face up to them and look for solutions. As you have a keen eye for the errors and shortcomings of others and you are often quick at expressing criticism, you sometimes rub people up the wrong way – especially when you lose your temper and jump to conclusions. Due to your marked sense of justice you are quickly willing to correct yourself and never take offence if someone speaks to you frankly. Determined Realists like you are often found in executive positions as you combine commitment, competence and the ability to assert yourself. In your spare time, you also accept responsibility in clubs and other institutions.
As a Determined Realist, you are one of the extroverted personality types. You enjoy working in a team as a colleague or a team leader.Because you have an outgoing nature, you approach others easily and openly; working in solitude by yourself would be punishment for you. You know how to appreciate a harmonic working climate, but the relationship to your colleagues is not as important to you as to some of the other personality types. For you, the task always comes first and your colleagues and/or superiors are second. As long as everybody is working as disciplined and determined as you are, everything is just fine.
However, if you sense that the work is suffering from irrelevant disputes or private matters that have nothing to do with the job, you have no problem expressing your criticism, and making your team toe the line. It would never occur to you to sacrifice a good result in your work on the altar of personal moods, or in favor of a conflict free environment. On the other hand, you are one of the personality types who is best at handling criticism, and swallow negative feedback without brooding or sink into depression. Consequently, you also can hold your ground in professions where the climate is a little rougher and more competition oriented.
You are an excellent organizer, and a genius at planning and maintaining a workflow that is precise and on time. You enjoy dealing with details and facts, developing rules and guidelines, and establishing standards. Here, your natural sense for systematic and love of order prove to be advantageous; as well as your acute aptitude to see the most efficient of all possible approaches. Where your work is concerned, “reliability” is your second name. You have a real problem leaving things to chance, and you hate nothing more than when something unexpected happens, thus throwing your carefully laid plans into chaos without warning. When a project you conceived is implemented without any hiccups and is brought to a good end, this is your greatest joy.
