Humanitarian

  • Whether You’re organizing a canned food drive or rescuing injured pigeons, your compassion and empathy quietly inspires others to be a better person. As a team member, you believe that if one person benefits, the whole team should benefit – which often results in plenty of baked goods for the entire office (yum). Because you tend to put the needs of others before your own, you often have a difficult time saying no, which may leave you feeling burdened. So … since we know you won’t say no, care to share some of those baked goods with us?

  • 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. As a Humanitarian, you can be a bit shy and introverted. This tends to hold you back in competitive environments, as you’re hesitant to point out your accomplishments – you’d rather let your work speak for itself. If your work goes unrecognized, it can cause you to become stressed and dissatisfied. You have a tendency to repress your feelings and speak your mind because you have a hard time articulating your feelings in a positive way. While your crazy-strong work ethic will take you far in your career, you must also be aware of the effects. Your strong devotion towards hard work means that you’re apt to overload yourself and can result in tension and stress. 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.

  • As a Humanitarian, you’re at your best when you’re able to utilize your intellectual curiosity at work. You work best in a reliable, stable and pleasant atmosphere – and on the flip side, don’t handle stressful environments well. For this reason, you should seek out organizations (and managers!) that work hard to keep the peace by actively resolving conflicts and problems in the workplace. Your sense of practicality and keen observation skills paired with your imagination, compassion and patience are your strong suits. For this reason, you’re best suited for ideal jobs that utilize these traits, such as social worker, nurse, medical professional or any other position that allows you to help and connect with others.

  • The Humanitarian is naturally empathetic, perceptive, supportive and concerned about the well-being of others – in other words, they love to communicate with others! The Humanitarian responds best to conversation that is warm, friendly and social. That being said, they prefer conversation that is respectful and calm and won’t respond well to those that are overly-assertive or deferential.
