    Motivational Visionary

    Same as Sytpg, and Amargith!

    My left-brain concrete was empty as usual.




    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    You are a Entrepreneur

    You're a rare balance between left and right brain.

    Your Communication Style

    ?
    Thinking Before Acting

    Entrepreneur! That's the word that best represents your style. You are an equal combination of aware thought and realistic action. In other words, you'll see something unusual, think about it, organize your thoughts around it into a realistic goal and then, immediately act on it. Sometimes you're successful and sometimes you're not. That's what makes your life exciting.

    Here's what's different about what you do compared to other people. You're an applied risk taker! You are not afraid to take action on your awareness.

    Another process of yours that is different from others is that you'll incubate your thoughts for a long time and then, out of nowhere, want to apply them directly. The benefit is that your thoughts are original and when applied correctly, they can be very successful. The problem is that others around you have not been clued into your thoughts until you're ready to run with them. They have not been prepared to assist you. This dichotomy between thought and action can sometimes create confusion among those around you.
    Combining Intuition and Logic

    Your thinking process is a combination of intuition and concrete, applied logic. Yes, you can think and even express yourself theoretically and strategically. But when push comes to shove, you'll want to take these ideas and develop them into active, participatory thoughts that can lead to specific actions.

    Two questions are very important to you: "What's the goal or objective?" and "How does it work?" One is the end point and the other is the process in successfully reaching the end point. When you're getting ready to apply your thoughts, you're simultaneously asking and answering these two questions.
    Shifting Priorities

    When it comes to time, there is a constant shift within you from future thoughts to present actions. You're always thinking about changing possibilities and probabilities, yet wanting to stay on your path toward present day goals and objectives. This dichotomy within you creates a charged energy that, if channeled correctly, will give you and others around you positive results. However, successfully handling this dichotomy depends upon your learning from previous life experiences.

    You vacillate from procrastinating to finishing something to wanting to get it done ahead of time. The compromise is that you usually finish what you start out to accomplish on time. That's why it's important for you to set deadlines for yourself and your projects.
    Idealism vs. Realism

    Another contrast that you live with is that you're predominantly a thinking idealist and an action-oriented realist. Thus, when you have to apply some of your ideas, they create an internal and external frustration with reality. However, with enough experiences, you've learned how to pragmatically weave your way through this. And, in the end, you achieve at a high-level.

    Sometimes, in your action mode, your communications can be perceived as very immediate, blunt, and even threatening. Other times, when you're relaxed and just sharing some thoughts about things, your communications are perceived as interesting, casual and extremely enjoyable. That's why it's important for you to be aware of your internal motivational shifts and how they affect your communications.
    The Bottom Line

    Just remember, that even with all of the above dichotomies and contrasts, your life has been exciting and successful overall. Tomorrow will bring new awareness, different ideas and some more applied adventures. That's the way you like it.

    Your Career Style

    You as a career seeker

    You have a talent for intuitively thinking about the big picture and seeing the wealth of possibilities. You're naturally creative and tend to be an independent thinker. You might not fit comfortably in a career or company that is bound by strict rules or a rigid hierarchical organization. You require the freedom to exercise your creativity, both for your own satisfaction and to meet the goals of the company. You combine aware thought with practical action. Once you have formulated your thoughts, you may be driven to take action and accomplish your objectives efficiently and quickly. Suitable jobs for you would be those with creative, open-ended possibilities, such as architecture, teaching, magazine writing, and product development. Additionally, job titles such as businessman, entrepreneur, manager, or attorney would suit your drive for growth and accomplishment. Ultimately, you seek a rewarding career that satisfies your creative drive and your ability to lead others.
    Your communication style in the workplace

    You communicate well with individuals and small groups. In team meetings, you thrive on exchanging ideas with your colleagues. You often communicate your ideas with abstract analogies or metaphors, but when called for, you can communicate in concrete terms and be very effective in making decisions or reaching the bottom line. Your combination of intuitive and concrete thinking creates an energy that can produce positive results. Another contrast that you live with is your idealism combined with action-oriented realism. You tend to be patient and understanding of others, as well as insightful and perceptive of their needs and motivations.
    Your strengths in the workplace

    As a person who thinks in patterns and understands how things relate to each other, you are able to bring a sense of vision and innovation to the workplace or your own business. You have a way of coming up with creative options that often lead to a better process. You think more about long-term strategies rather than short-term tactics. Your colleagues look up to you for your awareness of what's going on and your ability to provide decisive guidance when needed. Your creative abilities will often help you find optional solutions to potential conflicts that others might not think of. Even though you tend to create your own rules, you accept and follow the agreed-upon rules of the corporate culture.
    What to be careful of in the workplace

    Normally you think before you act so you may have a hard time taking immediate action when needed. Sometimes you delay making decisions as you like to consider the merits of several options before deciding. For the sake of efficiency, choose the logical solution and save your creativity for a less time-critical situation. At times, you allow your feelings to cloud the issues and to get in the way of making decisions. Try not to take things personally if someone criticizes an idea you've come up with. When you assume a leadership role, remember to communicate clearly what the goals are, what each person's role is, and what your expectations are.

    Communication Tips

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Abstractthinking style thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before making any decisions. Their style is naturally systematic and detail-oriented, characterized by the pursuit of logic, predictability and discipline. They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. They tend to stick to the rules and stay within the confines of their orderly world.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * You might find their passion for logical analysis to be ponderous or overly pedantic at times, but if you keep an open mind, their conclusions could be beneficial to you.
    * In situations where you must collaborate on a project or a plan, their tendency to stick to the rules can be limiting to your own creative visions. Present your optional ideas as logical alternatives worthy of consideration.
    * They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. Don't take this personally or assume they're arrogant. Remember that they're absorbing and processing information before they render an opinion.
    * They can be a valuable source of background or historical information, which you sometimes tend to overlook while you aim for the "big picture." Nevertheless, expect them to provide more details than you might care for.

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Concrete thinking style thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. They often speak without spending too much time thinking about what to say.

    When communicating with a Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * At times, you might find their ebullient need to be the center of attention to be overpowering or annoying.
    * Like therapists, they can sometimes encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they don't pry too deeply or push their solutions too strongly.
    * As much as you think before you speak, they think by speaking. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions.
    * Even if they don't take logic or factual data into account, they may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration.
    * Since you both like to come up with ideas, the verbal interaction can be both personally rewarding and productive. They may not share your visionary creativity, but they often have an intuitive sense of what is most suited for you.
    * They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. While you might find their personal charm and charisma irresistible, don't allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.

    You are an Analytical Visionary
    You know how to mix the "how" and the "why."


    Creative Thinker

    You love to think, logically and creatively. You are most productive at work when you are solving problems by analyzing specific situations or by creating multiple options. You're adept at strategic planning at the highest levels.

    Sixth-Sense Awareness

    You are very aware of what's happening around you and/or what's going to happen in the future. It's almost like you have a sixth sense. You see the forest where most people are looking at trees or clumps of trees. This gives you a vision toward which to direct people's energies and thought processes. When you do this, people are amazed and excited about following your vision and strategies.


    You're also able to break the vision and strategies into workable components that are easy to understand because they are linear, logical and uncomplicated. You also always ask a very important question when you're thinking through the solutions: "What is missing or doesn't fit?" Others on the project are surprised when you question your own assumptions, facts and logic.

    I actually had a nice right/left balance, first an secondary. That was nice.

    Luna Luminosity, You are an Analytical Visionary
    You know how to mix the "how" and the "why"

    Understanding the Big Picture
    Thinking and processing! That's what you love to do the most. Ideas and options are what you're always creating. Once something seems concrete, structured and complete, you have a way of coming up with a creative option that changes the whole and leads to a better building process.
    Most of the time you are very uncanny about seeing and understanding the big picture. Yes, you're a holistic thinker that is always asking the question "How?" Everything, including the smallest detail, needs to be woven into a framework to answer your question of "How?" Not one step can be taken until you know how that step fits into the whole. These are some of many reasons why people refer to you as a visionary.

    How You Think
    Your thinking process is mostly intuitive and analogic. However, you do use facts and logic to back up your intuitive thought processing. When you weave these processes together, you're constantly challenging logical and scientific thought. You seem to stretch the facts to create a new theory or develop a synthetic way of tying different theories together. This optional way of thinking energizes your thought processes while at the same time focuses your energy on the facts in specific, yet different, ways.

    Dynamic Creativity
    Change, particularly in ideas, is never-ending for you. What you're enthusiastic about today may not be the focus of your energy in a week, a month or year. People that know you see a dynamic stream of consciousness which, given the right amount of time and people support, develops idealistic and artistic themes into living and creative realities. It makes no difference whether they are software programs, pieces of art, strategies for corporations or new, holistic developments for organic gardening.
    There is no timeline or deadline for your accomplishments. They are never-ending because you will go back and transform them if they evolve into a different whole within you. That is why in school or at work you procrastinate until the last moment to finish a paper, an assignment or a project. If you do the work early, you'll have to go back and change it completely because you'll see it in a different contextual whole at the time when it is due. So, why redo it?

    Shifting to Logical Thinking
    Sometimes, you'll leave these creative and optional way of thinking to become extremely logical, rational and serial in your thought patterns and work. During this time, you'll be very analytical, and you will develop critical thoughts and strategies. You'll insist that ideas have factual, underlying assumptions before they can be made into strategies.
    You'll be capable of critiquing and changing your own creative theories and plans. Persons that are participating in this change with you will be taken aback by your honest and thorough examinations, your attention to analytic detail and your sudden need to meet timelines punctually.
    Every so often, paradoxical thoughts attract you. Most people avoid them. You seem curious and comfortable with them. That's because, once again, your need for creative and optional thinking doesn't have to be tied consistently together with logic and factual data.

    Exploring Options
    You're attracted to the unknown more than the known. You're drawn to what's unusual about something rather than what is typical about it. If it's strange or way out there, you'll want to know and read about it. You may take an idea from this and apply it in some practical way.
    As a scientist or scholar, you have a bent towards the artistic side. What other people see as facts, you may see as shades of facts or possibilities of different facts. It's the development and the creation of new ideas and new ways of looking at something that excites you. That's because your world is the world of possibilities and visions.

    Thinking of the Future
    You're always thinking about the future and you have an unusual awareness as to what may happen. What you forecast is not always logical and sometimes makes many people uncomfortable. But, if they've known you long enough, they use the awareness to be better prepared for upcoming situations or events.
    People want you to share your thoughts with them. That's because your ideas and expressions usually give a different slant to a topic. Many times others look to you for your awareness or guidance about something.

    How You Communicate with Others
    You're an excellent communicator with individuals and small groups of three, no more than four people. You listen attentively to what people say, how they say it and what feelings are generated. When you give feedback, it is usually very sensitive and leads to further communication. You have an unusual awareness for what is happening to the person and others that are participating. It's almost like a sixth sense. Sometimes, people distance themselves from you because of this sensitivity and your feedback.
    Almost the same thing happens when you enter a room with people conversing. Without trying, you can sense the themes of the discussions and the feelings being expressed. As you join a group, people are drawn to you and have a need to express their thoughts and feelings in your presence. You seem to be a natural facilitator for communication on all levels.

    You as a career seeker
    You love thinking about the world around you and are often able to find both creative and practical ideas that lead to a better process. You have a talent for understanding the big picture along with the factual details. You thrive on exchanging ideas with others in an effort to explore the best ways to accomplish your goals. You function best when you can follow your own rules and timetable. As a result, you're not likely to fit comfortably in a career that is bound by rules or a strict hierarchical organization. You prefer the freedom to exercise your creative and intuitive visions, both for your own satisfaction and to meet the goals of the company. Suitable jobs for you would be those with creative, open-ended possibilities, such as architecture, teaching, journalism, and product development. Ultimately, you seek an emotionally and intellectually meaningful career as you are not driven primarily by financial motives.

    Your communication style in the workplace
    You communicate well with individuals and small groups, often using abstract metaphors or analogies to convey your ideas. When the need calls for it, you can communicate in concrete terms, focusing on technical or historical details. You tend to think before you speak and are often able to back up your opinions with rational arguments and facts. Though often quiet and reserved, you are caring and sympathetic towards others and try to maintain a harmonious relationship with your colleagues. Your creative and logical abilities will often help you find optional solutions to potential conflicts that others might not think of. You listen attentively and patiently when others speak, showing a deep understanding of their needs, feelings, and motivations when you provide feedback.

    Your strengths in the workplace
    As a person who thinks in patterns and understands how things relate to each other, you are able to bring a sense of vision and innovation to the workplace or your own business. You have a way of coming up with creative options that often lead to a better process. You think more about long-term strategies rather than short-term tactics, and you'll consider alternative solutions to problems in the workplace. Your colleagues look up to you for your awareness of what's going on and your ability to provide practical guidance when needed. They know you can apply your analytical thought processes to find the most logical plan of action or the best strategy to follow. Even though you tend to create your own rules, you accept and follow the agreed-upon rules of the corporate culture.

    What to be careful of in the workplace
    Your natural inclination is to think before you act so you may have a hard time taking immediate action when needed. Sometimes you delay making decisions as you like to consider the merits of several options before deciding. Try not to let your feelings cloud the issues. For the sake of efficiency, go for the most logical solution and save your creativity for a less time-critical situation. Likewise, focusing too much on the details or looking for the perfect solution can also be counter-productive at times.

    Got the same thing I did before...

    Driven Planner
    : "If there's such a thing as a logical thinker you are it."

    Communication Style
    ?
    The Ultimate Planner

    You are admired by many because of your thinking skills and the way you skillfully design your life and the steps in the lives of others. You're an excellent planner. Your opinions are treasured and trusted. Most people know that before you do anything or advise others about anything, you've reached broadly and delved deeply into the history and facts. Everyone realizes that you are most conscientious and respectful of doing the right thing in the right way.
    Checks and Balances

    Yes, yours is a life of checks and balances to the smallest decimal place. No detail is overlooked. You only take precise steps that are planned out well in advance. Thinking and logic are supreme. Knowledge is the foundation. Everything is a chess match at the Masters level!

    Sometimes when you take action, you do it directly and with authority. It's during these moments of immediate action that you surprise some people. That's because they mostly know you as a thinker and a planner, one who distances himself from the fray. What they don't realize is that you have a powerful side that can put into effect your articulate plans and follow them to fruition. It's almost as if you are transformed from Clark Kent into Superman. However, people that have known you for a long time recognize and respect this action part of your behavior. They know that you have this internal leadership drive that can kick in at the right moment if need be. That's another reason why they respect and follow you.
    How You Learn

    You are a lifelong learner. Everything is absorbed like a blotter by your lock-step memory. Then, it is carefully processed and contextually stored with other pertinent information. When the need arises, you retrieve and reprocess the information for appropriate applications. Rarely does your memory or logical use of stored information fail.

    You're not a risk taker. It doesn't mean that you're not adventurous. It means that before you take the first step, every possible move and option that can be controlled has been thought through thoroughly. You only like to deal with probabilities in your favor at 99.44 percent. Joy for you is minimizing luck.
    How You Interact with Others

    You're basically an introverted and low-key person who likes everything to be orderly and impersonal. Reserved, proper and calm are words that are often used to describe you. You usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people. You are independent and can be a loner very easily. Sometimes, your best friend is your computer and its Internet access.

    In a group setting you're usually very quiet and rarely volunteer to speak unless you have something very pertinent to say. Even then, you are reticent at best. However, if someone you respect directly asks you for your opinion, you'll answer if you deem the subject in question worthy of your attention. Then, and only then, will you respond in a thorough manner. If you are pushed to explain even more, you'll use historical and logical explanations, including answering all of the possible questions as to why your responses are correct. Thus, you'll not leave any rational leaf unturned and immediately you'll halt the possibility that someone else may question you again about this subject area.
    Leading Others

    Once in a while you'll tweak the group by taking a leadership role. You usually do this when there is a problem to solve and the group members seem to prefer sitting on their hands instead of taking action to solve it. It's then that you'll step in to organize the data gathering and the planning. You'll make sure the steps to be taken are practical and will lead to the successful accomplishment of reaching the goal. You'll then lead the charge and carefully measure the successes along the way.

    Given the right opportunity to debate someone of equal or greater intellectual stature, you'll jump at this fortuitous occasion. You'll enter this competition because you know that, win, lose or draw, you'll learn more than if you abstain. You're not afraid of losing face; after all, it's an opportunity to learn and achieve at a higher level. With you, there is no cost associated with learning, especially when it means you might become #1.
    How You Judge Others

    Sometimes, particularly when you're younger, you can be quite critical of others and haughty in your responses. In fact, as people speak, you are editing what they're saying and judging their intellectual capacity. At some point in your life, you'll recognize that you are much brighter and more knowledgeably prepared than most people. Thus, you have two choices as to how you are to respond: arrogantly critical or respectfully positive. Hopefully, you've had enough experiences in life to respond in the latter manner so that people will not be intimidated and discontinue relating to you.
    The Final Analysis

    Overall, your intellectual insights, planning and meticulous behavior are seen by others as a great asset to the team and the organization. People depend on your articulate advice and logical thinking. Just be patient with them in the beginning and let them know what you think in a positive manner.

    Communication Tips

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Concrete thinking style thrive on interacting with people and being the center of attention. They inspire others with their charm and warm personality. They can read other people very easily and use their intuitive skills to adapt effortlessly to changing situations. They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. They often speak without spending too much time thinking about what to say.

    When communicating with a Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * Typically, you are not comfortable with their sometimes overly exuberant chitchat or storytelling.
    * As much as you think before you speak, they think by speaking. You usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people, but if the topic of conversation interests you, you'll listen and quietly process the information.
    * They are excellent at exciting and persuading others to follow their suggestions. At times, however, you might find their ebullience to be overpowering or annoying and will avoid interacting with them.
    * Like therapists, they can sometimes encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. You're usually okay with this, as long as they don't pry too deeply or push their solutions too strongly.
    * Even if they don't take logic or factual data into account, they may come up with innovative or imaginative ideas that are worthy of your consideration.
    * They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. As you analyze their intentions, however, you won't easily allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.

    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Concrete thinking style are action-oriented and thrive on challenge. As movers of people and organizations, they enforce rules, focus on goals, meet deadlines, and demand immediate action. They typically avoid getting bogged down in details and want to go directly to the bottom line. They prefer short and easy action-items or conclusions. They are decisive people who want to get things done quickly and efficiently.

    When communicating with a Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * Your comfort with following rules and focusing on goals meshes well with their insistence on enforcing rules and driving all actions to achieving goals.
    * Because of your introverted nature, you might find their style at times overbearing or in some cases, even intimidating. As a result, you're likely to interact with them only as much as absolutely necessary.
    * When it comes to solving problems, they view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that prevent them from reaching a firm conclusion. Typically this would not be an obstacle for you as you rely primarily on logic and rarely on feelings to help arrive at conclusions.
    * At times you may feel driven to provide a detailed analysis of a situation and will be frustrated at their impatience or reluctance to listen to your ideas.
    * In general, you should get along with each other fairly easily, as you both tend toward "left-brain" functions. Your quest for logical choices blends well with their concrete pragmatism and common sense.

    People who have a predominantly Right-brain Abstract thinking style tend to be visionary thinkers who look at the big picture and try to understand how things relate to each other. They are creative people who consider many options and abstract concepts when absorbing or presenting information and when making decisions. They tend to think before they speak.

    When communicating with a Right-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * You may find their visions lacking the historical perspective or logical analysis that you require to make it acceptable. Nevertheless, they are usually open to benefiting from your knowledge and experience.
    * They value creative, inspirational options and can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you might become irritated with their tendency to go off on tangents when you?re trying to focus on a particular issue of concern.
    * Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves.
    * When the need to accomplish something arises, you can become impatient or frustrated with their tendency to procrastinate.

    When communicating with another Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * Like you, they thrive on careful analysis of all pertinent factors before reaching any conclusions. While they share your passion for logical and systematic analysis, you may find yourself disagreeing with their conclusions if you find any flaws in their facts or hypotheses. Because your own analysis may differ from theirs, you are likely to view that difference as a challenge that can stimulate a lively debate.
    * Like you, they usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people. If you invest some energy into communication, you are bound to reap the benefits of the other person's knowledge and unique thought processes.
    * In situations where you must collaborate on a project, you may need to extract yourselves from excessive preoccupation with the analysis phase and focus on the execution phase.
    * Remember that since they prefer to listen rather than talk, they're absorbing and processing information that they may use to render an opinion. It would benefit you to be open-minded enough to consider a difference of opinion if offered.
    * They can be a valuable source of background or historical information that can be used to enhance your own analysis of a situation or problem.



    Stresses


    Using the Interactor style can create stress for you. Yes, you can use it for short periods of time as a learning or production tool. But, the longer you use it, the more stressed you become. Your energy-focus, which accesses this particular process, may be blocked sometimes. It's as if you have a blind spot in this part of your repertoire. You just don't like to have to use it as a primary tool. The following is what may create stress for you if used for more than short time periods:

    # Using personal, interactive dialogue as a primary tool
    # Wanting people to always be expressive, personal and humorous
    # Enjoying being charismatic and craving the center of attention
    # Needing to always be creative, innovative and humorous with others
    # Using dynamic and multi-sensory methods (touch, etc.) when relating to others

    Communication Style
    ?
    A Natural People Person

    When you are walking down a corridor or a street, you like to greet or stop to speak to someone. People just love to talk with you about anything. That's because the positive energy that you give off during conversations develops an instant bond with everyone.

    You love to interact with people. It doesn't matter how many people there are or at what level you're communicating; you do it effortlessly. Conversation has been extremely natural to you your whole life.

    You have a wonderful sense of humor. When people are with you, they smile and laugh a lot. Whether it's telling a joke you heard before or sharing a spontaneous ad lib, you're naturally funny and entertaining. Your humor and ways of communicating are constantly creating situations that relax and motivate other people.
    Strategic Creativity

    Unless people know you very well, they won't realize that you are quite capable of creating strategic plans, following intellectual pursuits and developing new, abstract theories about how things integrate or function. You're able to look at the whole picture, break them into discrete, unusual parts, and synthesize these into unique wholes or strategic plans. You thoroughly enjoy discovering creative options when thinking through difficult problems and challenging ideas.
    Motivating and Leading Others

    When it comes to dealing with people and problems, you use a combination of intuitive and rational thoughts very successfully. Your positive, personal and intelligent ways of relating to people make them want to follow you during times of confusion and stress. It's when the situations are dynamic and need optional thinking and/or in-the-moment organization that you're able to step forward, take command and lead others towards successful outcomes. This is when your style of leadership becomes most effective.

    Even if you're not knowledgeable about a subject area under discussion, you come across as smooth and intelligent. It doesn't matter to you what conversations others are having or what topics they're discussing, you can join in without missing a beat. That's because you intuitively know how to listen to the underlying messages being delivered and how to successfully respond to people intellectually with just a few facts.
    How You Learn

    Besides reading and studying, conversations and dialogues provide you with an enjoyable opportunity to learn. It's during this repartee that you're able to ask any type of question: logical, analogical or just odd ones to serve your curiosity. One of the best ways for you to learn and to be motivated is to belong to a study group, particularly one that has members who are focused on the objectives and deadlines. The process of these groups can provide you with the focus and further detail to study and learn effectively.
    Speaking in front of Groups

    Speeches and presentations to small or large groups come naturally to you. You can either be prepared or wing it when making a speech. The latter, with a few notes jotted on a piece of scrap paper, is your preferred way to present. Also, you'll use theatrical intonations and gestures, personalized comments and anecdotes with humor, integrating them around facts, logic and important points. When you have finished, people leave your presentations feeling that you have presented a solid case, you have touched them personally and you have spoken to each one of them intellectually.
    Your Leadership Qualities

    As a leader, you're a powerful combination of intellectual insightfulness, future predictions and personal charm. The former allows you to plan and think things through intuitively and logically. The latter allows you to be empathetic and personal in your expression of motivation and planned action. The two of these combined give you the positive power that people trust and follow.

    Communication Tips

    When communicating with a Left-brain Abstract person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    * You might find their passion for logical analysis to be ponderous or overly pedantic at times, but if you keep an open mind, their conclusions could be beneficial to you.
    * In situations where you must collaborate on a project or a plan, their tendency to stick to the rules can be limiting to your own creative visions. Present your optional ideas as logical alternatives worthy of consideration.
    * They may appear distant and aloof at times, as they prefer to listen rather than talk. Don't take this personally or assume they're arrogant. Remember that they're absorbing and processing information before they render an opinion.
    * They can be a valuable source of background or historical information, which you sometimes tend to overlook while you aim for the "big picture." Nevertheless, expect them to provide more details than you might care for.

    * There might be times that you will feel they are pushing too hard to get you to make a final decision. On the other hand, you might be struggling with all the options you're considering and could benefit from their decisive nature.

    * You are both open-minded and feelings-oriented. Together, you are likely to create a relaxed, low-key atmosphere based on trust and good rapport.
    * Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; just like you, they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or for themselves.
    * Ultimately, you both need to feel comfortable with how your decisions fit into your world.
