Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain

My Brain

Although I use both the left and right side of my brain depending on the thought process necessary, I am most comfortable while using the left side of my brain. That means that I like more structure, control, clarity, focus, direction, responsibility, organization, planning, mathematical and analytical skills, listening skills, rational and logical thinking. However, sometimes I need more spontaneity, expression, nurturing, social and interpersonal activity, imagination and creativity, artistry, holistic, abstract and conceptual thinking.

My Personality Type

#1 Blue

I have a blue personality type. That means that I am very concerned with feelings, friendships are very important to me, and I think of others before myself. When I communicate with others I'm very emotional. It frustrates me when others are negative and rude examples.

Decision Making

Directive Style

When making decisions I tend to follow the directive style. People with that decision making style focus on task and details, considers facts, rules, and procedures, acquires information through hunches and by using short reports with limited data, evaluates information by using intuition, experience, and rules, and has a low tolerance for uncertainty and needs structure. Others sometimes perceive my decision making as rigid, impersonal, simplistic, and autocratic. The best organizational fit for my type of decision making is one that allows for structure, goal-oriented, or where power and authority are important.
