Idealist

  • Always looking for the best in people, you see the world through rose-colored glasses (which, by the way, are so twenty years ago!) Although You’re a reluctant leader, You’re a good one – You’re compassionate, diplomatic, nurturing and you tend to lead by example instead of by authority. While You’re usually flexible and laid-back, your claws will come out if you feel someone is violating your value system. An abstract thinker, you enjoy looking at the bigger picture and encouraging others to do the same. And hey – when you figure out the meaning of life, don’t forget to let us know, OK?

  • As your name implies, you work best in job roles that allow you to be nurturing, diplomatic and supportive rather than those that require you to lead and direct others. Ever-diplomatic, you’re great at ensuring that context that the opinions and ideas of others are being heard. Because of your strong moral compass and love of supporting others, you’re well-suited for a wide variety of ideal jobs that utilize these skills, including counselor, religious worker, therapist or health care worker.
