The Logical Thinker
If there is such a thing as a purely rational person, youâ€™re it. Everything you think about and do needs to be analyzed and systematized logically. You live by deduction. First A, then B, next CÃ‚â€¦
Everything is categorized into its place and function. Next, itâ€™s checked to see if itâ€™s factual and can be proven scientifically. Then, and only then, will you deliberately proceed any further.
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!
Youâ€™re not a risk taker. It doesnâ€™t mean that youâ€™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.
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. Youâ€™re the ultimate planner. Your opinions are treasured and trusted. Most people know that before you do anything or advise others about anything, you have reached broadly and delved deeply into the history and facts. Everyone realizes that you are conscientious and respectful of doing the right thing in the right way.
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.
How You Interact with Others
Youâ€™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 donÃ‚â€™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.
However, if you don't invest some energy and emotions into communication and relationships, youâ€™ll be seen as boring, stiff and â€œnerdy.â€ Relating to others is almost always done in an intellectual manner. However, this raises a paradoxical dilemma for you because youâ€™re human and innately should be relating to others emotionally and socially, as well as intellectually.
In a group setting youâ€™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, youâ€™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, youâ€™ll use historical and logical explanations, including answering all of the possible questions as to why your responses are correct. Thus, youâ€™ll not leave any rational leaf unturned and immediately youâ€™ll halt the possibility that someone else may question you again about this subject area.
Given the right opportunity to debate someone of equal or greater intellectual stature, youâ€™ll jump at this fortuitous occasion. Youâ€™ll enter this competition because you know that, win, lose or draw, youâ€™ll learn more than if you abstain. Youâ€™re not afraid of losing face; after all, itâ€™s an opportunity to learn and achieve at a higher level. Youâ€™re not worried about the cost of learning.
How You Judge Others
Sometimes, particularly when youâ€™re younger, you can be quite critical of others and haughty in your responses. In fact, as people speak, you are editing what theyâ€™re saying and judging their intellectual capacity. At some point in your life, youâ€™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, youÃ‚â€™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.
How un-sensor of me.
