    Sensitive Boss

    "You are always striving to be on top, a futurist, a visionary."

    Primary: Right-brain abstract (large, global concepts and ideas) AND left-brain concrete (think in terms of problems and quick solutions)

    Sounds about right!

    Secondary: Right-brained concrete (think in terms of conversation)

    Yep, secondary fits.

    Avoid: Left-brained abstract (facts, details, and ordered information) HMMM I wonder ***why***

    Oh, hellz yeah!

    Good test, thanks!!!!

    Here are the explanations, since no one else got this:

    Communication Style

    A Natural Leader
    When it comes to challenges or competition, you're always striving to be No. 1. In fact, anything less than being the best can make you dissatisfied and upset. You love to be a winner and to associate with winners. You're not afraid to be No. 1 no matter what the personal cost and time involved. With each step, you love to become more productive and to gain more power over other people and outcomes.

    What Drives You
    You love challenges! In any endeavor that you undertake, whether alone or as a leader of people, you strive to be the best. You'll funnel your energy like a laser beam towards the goals and objectives to be accomplished. You will not be budged from this path. Everyone who knows you realizes this. It's the tenacious bulldog in you.

    Time is Money
    Your middle name is "Efficiency." No matter what you attempt to do, you're always trying to do it faster and better. If a task can be accomplished in one hour, then you try to do it in 50 minutes, then in 40 minutes, etc.

    You are a bottom-line person. The saying, "Time is money," is a theme that drives you and makes you push others. Finishing a task or project on time is a necessity to you. You'll work relentlessly to this end.

    Getting Things Done
    Others refer to you as a task-master. When you're in a position of authority, you'll drive yourself and others to finish what needs to be done on time or ahead of time. If there's a choice between pleasing others and completing a task, there's no question that you would choose tasks over people. And when you're finished with that task, you quickly move on to the next one.

    Sometimes, when the moment is right, you can be sensitive and idealistic. When this happens to you, you seem to relax and listen to people with a third ear. Your communications become empathetic and more open. Once you have a basic understanding of what is going on, you try to solve it practically and continue to move toward your goals and objectives as quickly as possible.

    When you have appointments, you're always punctual. Many times you'll arrive ahead of time. That is why tardy people frustrate you so much. You just can't stand tardiness or procrastination. "Let's do it now, not tomorrow!" is a saying that you live by.

    Reaching Your Goals
    Most of the time you are a doer rather than a deep thinker. It's not that you're not smart, it's that your energy focuses on getting something done rather than just thinking about it. You love having goals and objectives as motivators and guideposts. You like to keep actions practical, predictable and in the present because things may change on-the-fly. If you're in a new situation that's not readily predictable, you're not afraid to learn as you go.

    A New Awareness
    Every so often you have some awareness that makes you think and feel differently. It's during these times that you like to sit back and take a look at the whole picture. You'll try to tie together loose ends into a practical theory which makes sense. Once you understand this whole, you'll break the strategies down into tactical actions and proceed.

    To the Point
    You constantly want to reduce things to their lowest common denominator. If it's written on one-page, it can be written in half a page or in a memo. That's why you prefer reading bullets of important points rather than paragraphs. "Give it to me in a nutshell!" is a motto of yours.

    You hate beating around the bush. When you communicate, you're direct and to the point. You love being concise and concrete. You can become impatient with people who are not like this.

    Sometimes, when the situation demands it, you can be empathetic and personal in your approach to some people. In fact, you can even be patient with vague questions and people who don't quite understand what is being discussed. During times like this, you'll try to figure out how a person is thinking and feeling before sharing some practical or creative options. Just remember, this is not your typical modus operandi.

    The Bottom Line
    As you have more experiences and confidently mature, you be less impatient with yourself and others. You will remain a driving force and will learn how to keep people on a timely track without creating too much tension and conflict. This doesn't mean that you'll be less demanding; it means that you'll be capable of communicating in mellower terms the "whats" and "whens" of things you need accomplished. And, you'll still be the commander, the mover and shaker of organizations who has a deep and broad authority.

    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:

    You usually don't like to engage in small talk, preferring to get right to the point, but you can handle the interaction in small doses.
    At times, however, you might find their ebullience to be an annoying waste of time and will avoid interacting with them.
    They might at times try to encourage you to open up and confide with them about personal problems or concerns you have. However, you tend to be guarded about personal matters and won't allow them to pry too deeply.
    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 may not share your passion for business-like efficiency, but they often have an intuitive sense of what is most suited for you or the company as a course of action.
    They can sometimes seem manipulative in getting their way. However, you won't allow yourself to be swayed in a direction that you know is not right for you.
    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 bottom-line perspective that you require, but you might benefit from their knowledge and creative thinking.
    Remember to be patient with their quiet, reflective nature; they may be thinking of other options that are more suitable for you or the company.
    They value creative, inspirational options and can usually provide interesting alternatives that would be worth your while to consider. At times, however, you'll become irritated with their tendency to go off on tangents when you're trying to stay on topic.
    When the need to accomplish something arises, you like to act decisively and quickly. You're likely to become impatient or frustrated with their tendency to procrastinate.
    While you generally don't like to interact with other people, if the issue is of concern to you, you'll be willing to listen as long as they get to the point without excessive rambling.
    People who have a predominantly Left-brain Abstract thinking 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:

    While you normally want to get to the bottom line as quickly as possible, it could be beneficial to you to allow them the leeway of summarizing their logical arguments.
    You may not share their passion for logical and systematic analysis, but you respect their precise methodology. You'll most likely agree with their conclusions as long as you don't find any obvious flaws in their facts or hypotheses.
    Like you, they usually don't like to interact verbally or personally with other people. If, however, you invest some energy into communication, you might reap the benefits of their knowledge and unique thought processes.
    In situations where you must collaborate on a project, take advantage of their expertise with the analysis phase before plunging into 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.
    When communicating with another Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:

    Like you, they 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. This is the world you function best in.
    Neither of you likes to be bothered with unnecessary details. As a result, you're likely to keep your interactions as brief and business-like as possible.
    When it comes to solving problems, you both view feelings or abstract concepts as intrusions that distract you from reaching a firm conclusion. This tendency might help you get directly to the bottom line, but you may be overlooking ideas that could be crucial to making a more informed, and practical, decision.
    At times you may feel the need to explore other options. If they are resistant to this, you'll need to judge how far you can push your ideas before they cut you off.
    You're not likely to be offended by their direct talk, even if it seems abrupt, since you understand that they are goal-oriented people who know how to get things done. As long as you agree with them, you'll be gratified by the successful accomplishment of the tasks at hand.


    Using the Analyzer 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:

    Constantly asking the question, "Why?" and thoroughly examining the answers
    Always being skeptical about your facts, thinking or learning processes before undertaking or doing something
    Reaching a conclusion only based on thinking logically
    Using only factual assumptions to reach detailed, action-oriented steps
    Not expressing your opinions until they demonstrate an impeccable rationale

    High Achiever
    You are the consummate, high achieving person who relishes being the most knowledgeable authority in any endeavor. Finishing as number one gives you the control over your destiny that you love to have. That's because you are an independent, solitary achiever who knows what you want and where you want to go most of the time. You do interact intellectually with other people and employees, particularly if it's about detailed planning and activation of that plan. Sometimes, your computer can become one of your most reliable partners for learning, working and, once in a great while, having fun.

    You are a visionary who is a logical, pragmatic thinker and planner. You always need three questions answered:

    1. "What's the objective or task?"
    2. "Why is something happening?"
    3. "How does something work?"

    Thinking Systematically
    Whatever you are thinking about has to meet the rational/idealistic criteria of analysis, precision and whole systems. Its futuristic direction has to have a historical and factual basis. If it does not meet all of these, you are first skeptical and then, rigidly non-accepting if you can't create a systematic understanding of the answers. In fact, you can be the ultimate skeptic who won't be moved to any action without all your ducks in a row.

    Setting Realistic Goals
    However, overall, you can be a pragmatic realist who can get people to do what you want. It's during these moments that you can interact verbally with some associates to let them know what needs to be accomplished, how to proceed and why it is necessary to do it now. To make your directives clear so that everyone together meets or exceeds the total goal successfully, you will have a detailed plan with out-of-the-box alternatives set up for each person to accomplish each necessary task.

    How You Learn
    Traditional learning (lectures and reading) comes easily for you, particularly if they are factual, logical, historical and systematic in their approach. However, if your instructor's presentation wanders from the topic, incorporates too many personal examples or grammatical mistakes, your respect begins to dwindle. If these teaching faux pas' continue, you may become internally impatient and quietly develop an intellectual arrogance.

    When it comes to learning, you are an excellent listener and reader who logically categorizes everything, easily memorizes things, zeroes in on the details and builds your own rational conclusions into very creative wholes. Then, you check them over and over in many different ways. It's not that you are distrusting (even of yourself), it's that you are a true, rational skeptic.

    Well technically everyone IS a visionary, since all people carry their own individual perception of the world around with them and secretly I think we all wish to impress some part of our perception on the world, even if we lack the skills to bring about any real change.

    Yep I also got visionary. I'm also not that fond of a test that tells people how they think.

    Although I will concede that Left brained concrete being my least preferred section seems pretty apt, especially the part about it being used to come up with quick solutions to immediate problems....i'm terrabad at that......which is why I won't survive the squirrel uprising.

    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.
