Technician

Practical, analytical, and competent, the Technician has a strong work ethic and enjoys keeping busy. As creative individuals, they enjoy generating innovative solutions for problems and prefer to work independently. As someone who loves to keep busy, you enjoy spending your time figuring out how things work – a hobby which likely drove your parents nuts (have they forgiven you for disassembling their 1972 Zenith TV yet?) Not only do you have a knack for fixing things, but your hand-eye coordination could put even the most skilled surgeon to shame. You are methodical by nature, and if slow and steady wins the race, then we’re fairly certain you have a whole stack of gold medals! Although you’re an independent introvert, you’re just as comfortable in a leadership role as you are in a supporting role. Underneath that stable, reserved exterior is a person that loves adventure … and it’s safe to say that you get your fix by riding around on a motorcycle that you built from scratch using junk yard parts.
HOW THIS ARCHETYPES WORKS WITH OTHERS

Advocate

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

The Technician and the Advocate both share a practical yet empathic nature - but little else. These two will definitely respect each other and we won't see any catfights thanks to their laid-back, stable nature, but their different approaches make them apt to clash. In fact, we're apt to find the independent and diligent Technician wishing the Advocate would stop socializing and start plugging away.

Caretaker

Partly cloudly

The Technician prefers a faster pace, a little more elbow grease and a little less socializing than the Caretaker. On the flip side, the Caretaker prefers to make others feel comfortable and at ease. The Technician is likely to respect the Caretaker's priorities... as long as the Caretaker doesn't try to discuss his or her feelings.

Dreamer

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

While not totally at odds, the Dreamer's creative and independent outlook conflicts with the Technician's practical, collaborative approach. Additionally, the Technician is highly stable, whereas the Dreamer is much more feeling. That being said, if these two were to join forces on a project, we'd bet they'd be able to create a beautiful and functional masterpiece... as long as they're able to work through their differences.

Go-Getter

Sunshine and roses

From the outside, the introverted and practical Technician appears to be quite different from the outgoing, imaginative Go-Getter. However, these two actually fit together well in other ways, making them a fairly good team. When the Go-Getter decides to create a space rocket for recreational travel, we're betting the Technician will be the first one s/he hires to work on the project!

Humanitarian

Sunshine and roses

While you're more apt to find the Technician saving a junk car than saving the world, s/he and the Humanitarian get along quite well - the Technician's practical outlook meshes well with the Humanitarian's steady nature. With highly stable personalities and complementary approaches, these two make a solid team!

Idealist

Sunshine and roses

While the Idealist a bit more creative and personable than the practical and introverted Technician, these two are both curious creatures that love to learn. This pair is apt to be quite supportive and work well together in a team environment.

Inventor

Smooth sailing

Although these two are different in their thinking styles, the Technician and Inventor share some values... like a love for taking things apart and putting them back together again. In the right work environment, these two will work well together... just keep an eye on your electronics.

Mastermind

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

These two share a dynamic approach, and a stable, practical nature. While the Mastermind will appreciate the Technician's undying competence, the Technician is likely to be put off by the Mastermind's lack of empathy and ruthlessness. Not a match made in cubicle heaven!

Maverick

Partly cloudly

Although sharing an appetite for variety, the Technician is likely to be put off by the Maverick's super-sociable, creative nature. They might work together just fine, but we're not likely to find these two socializing... unless they're skydiving, that is.

Protector

Smooth sailing

Strikingly similar in many ways, the Technician may be less sociable and more practical than the creative Protector. Nonetheless, they are likely to work well together and respect each other's priorities - and need for alone time. Speaking of alone time, these two are both quite independent - while they'll respect each other's thoughts and opinions, it may be difficult for them to collaborate.

Rock

Sunshine and roses

The Rock and Technician have one major thing in common: a crazy strong work ethic. The Technician is more intellectually curious, and more of a risk taker than the Rock, who's always the voice of reason. With similar levels of empathy, social confidence, practicality and overall stability, the Rock and the Technician work fairly well together - although we may find the Rock trying to convince the Technician that parasailing during a tornado is a bad idea.

Socialite

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

The practical, stoic Technician is likely to be turned off by the Socialite's flighty independence - in fact, we're apt to find the Technician meticulously tying up the Socialite's loose ends, leaving both parties feeling frustrated. If the Socialite's emotions start running high around the stoic Technician, these two are likely to rub each other up the wrong way!

Straight Shooter

Partly cloudly

These two are both practical, methodical and hardworking. That being said, the Technician is a whiz at generating innovative solutions, which might frustrate the Straight Shooter, who dislikes abstract thinking. On the flip side, the Straight Shooter's lack of empathy might rub the Technician the wrong way. Nonetheless, these two are very committed and will likely put aside their differences to get the job done.

Strategist

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

While the Technician is meticulously trying to solve problems on a case-by-case basis, the Strategist is looking at the bigger picture and playing life like a game of chess. Even though these two both share a strong work ethic and ultra-stable personalities, they're likely to butt heads due to their varying approaches.

Technician

Sunshine and roses

The Technician has a practical approach to work; therefore this duo will share this outlook and work quite well together. As independent introverts, these two will respect each other's need for personal space and quiet time. These two will mesh quite well and you're unlikely to find any conflict in this pairing.

Visionary

Cloudy with a chance of conflict

While the Visionary is in it to win it, the Technician is in it to fix it. Conflicting in every way possible, the Technician and Visionary are unlikely to make a good team. While these two may share a certain energy, the Technician will dislike the Visionary's ethics, and the Visionary won't mesh well with the Technician's style.
