Dreamer

  • Admit it, when you were little, you wanted to be Bob Ross when you grew up. As an independent, free-thinking creative, you prefer to do your own thing and keep to yourself. Team brainstorming sessions likely drive you nuts – you’re apt to spend the time coming up with solutions in your own mind rather than talking them out with the team. You’re also very perceptive – always observing your surroundings and analyzing others. A true introvert, you’re kind of like a Tootsie Roll Pop – it takes some time to crack your exterior, but those who do will discover a caring, warm-hearted and interesting soul.

  • Like every personality type, your archetype has some weaknesses, but being aware of these weaknesses and learning to overcome them can help you further your career – and even your personal life! For this reason, we’ve compiled career tips for your unique personality type. While these unique traits are what make you who you are (and we’d never suggest changing your unique personality type!) you should be aware of these traits to ensure that they aren’t holding you back in your career. Although you’re a talented, skilled individual, you have a tendency to be quite meek in the workplace – and some may interpret this as lacking confidence. Because you’re such an emotionally intense and sensitive individual, you may have difficulty handling stressful situations in the workplace. Emotional stress may impact your creative skills – and in turn, your work performance. As a Dreamer, you prefer to live in the moment and avoid long-term commitments, as you like to keep your options open. Additionally, you have a laid-back, go-with-the-flow attitude. Although you’re a loyal, dedicated individual, these traits may make you appear unreliable or flaky to others.

  • As a free-thinking introvert, you flourish any position that allows you to do your own thing and generate your own ideas behind the scenes. Your independence is key here – in the words of Fleetwood Mac, you can (and should) find a position that allows you to go your own way. Oh yes, and if your name didn’t give it away – you ideal jobs will be those that allow you to utilize your amazing creative skills.Although you’re independent, you truly enjoy bonding with your colleagues and thrive in a calm, friendly environment. You strongly dislike conflict and drama, therefore you’ll want to seek out an organization (and manager!) that promotes a friendly workplace environment and works hard to resolve issues and conflicts in work place. As a Dreamer, you’ll flourish in an environment that provides you with plenty of opportunities to explore, learn and grow. You’ll do best in jobs that allow you to utilize your natural curiosity and creative skills, such as photographer, painter or designer. Additionally, you’ll also thrive in jobs that utilize your empathetic, sensitive nature, such as therapist, psychologist, or teacher.

  • The peace-loving, sensitive Dreamer prefers a laid-back, informal communication style. As introverts, it’s important to understand that they may not go out of their way to communicate with others. The Dreamer may be difficult to pull out of their shell – something that may baffle more outgoing archetypes. This doesn’t mean that they’re rude, unfriendly or snobbish – they just prefer to keep to themselves.

  • As an emotionally sensitive soul, the Dreamer dislikes conflict and will avoid it at all costs. In addition, the Dreamer is very perceptive – they’re always observing their surroundings and analyzing others, meaning that they’ll likely have their own preconceived notions about any given situation. For this reason, it’s important to not pressure them to do things your way. Instead, invite the Artist to imagine the situation from your perspective – they’ll respond best to this approach.
