Visual Learner: 10
Auditory Learner: 5
Tactile/Kinesthetic Learner: 0
A visual learner learns best when information is presented visually. This means that the more the learner is able to see the information, the easier it may be for that learner to learn the information. Some of the things a visual learner might need to use may be: textbooks, worksheets, written notes, maps, flash cards, diagrams, written directions, notes on index cards, notes on the blackboard, information on posters, bulletin boards, written outlines, graphic organizers (a kind of written diagram used for outlining or seeing relationships between concepts), drawings, and pictures.
A visual learner may prefer to study using the materials just listed. The learner may prefer to use a highlighter (a light colored marker) on a page in a book, to highlight important information. If this is not allowed as the learner does not own the book, make photocopies of the pages so that the learner may do this. Another study method is to use flash cards for review. Keep the flashcards neatly organized, by topic, in an index card box.
If the visual learner is presented with an activity that is not highly visual in nature, change the activity to accommodate the learner's needs. For example, let's say the visual learner must remember the information presented at a lecture. A lecture is primarily an auditory presentation (using hearing rather than sight). An example of changing this activity to a visual presentation might be to get permission to tape the lecture. Later, the learner would listen to the tape and transcribe the notes into written form. The learner would then be able to study the written notes, which is now a visual presentation. The learning method in this example, has changed from a purely auditory presentation, to an activity requiring visual input. Some other ideas might include seeing if the learner is able to read about the activity before actually listening to the lecture. Explain to the lecturer that you are a visual learner. See if you can get a copy of the notes from the lecturer.
Now that you know a little more about your learning style, see if you can match or adapt activities to increase your learning success.
An auditory learner learns best when information is presented auditorally. This means that the more the learner is able to hear the information, the easier it may be for that learner to learn the information. Some of the things an auditory learner might need to use may be: discussion groups, lectures, tape recorder, cooperative learning (where information is discussed within a group), directions discussed by the teacher before an activity is attempted, listening to books read to the group, books on tape, information put to songs, silly sayings that help you remember information (mnemonic devices), and recited poems of information.
An auditory learner may prefer to study using the materials just listed. The learner may prefer to listen to study material on tape. He/she may also wish to set information to music. After singing the song that was created, see how much faster an auditory learner is able to retain the information.
If the auditory learner is presented with an activity that is not highly auditory in nature, change the activity to accommodate the learner's needs. For example, let's say the auditory learner must remember the information presented in a textbook. A textbook is a visual presentation (using sight rather than hearing). An example of changing this activity to an auditory presentation might be, to get someone to make an audio cassette tape of the chapter to be studied. The learner would listen to the tape a number of times. The learner would then be able to study the textbook chapter, which is now an auditory presentation. The learning method in this example, has changed from a purely visual presentation, to an activity requiring auditory input. Label the tape and keep it in an indexed box. This way, the tape may be easily located for future review. Some other ideas might include teaching the learner to subvocalize. This means to whisper quietly under your breath. If a learner must glean information from written material while working in a quiet group, the learner may whisper under his/her breath, thus adding auditory input to a visual activity. When working alone, the learner may wish to read out loud. Teaching the learner to put information to music, poems, or sayings is another auditory method. Sing or repeat study information out loud. Notice how an auditory learner can remember every word to a song, but may have trouble quietly studying a few spelling words from index cards. If the learner sings those spelling words, you will see a difference in the learner's ability to retain the spelling information, with less effort.
Now that you know a little more about your learning style, see if you can match or adapt activities to increase your learning success.

Description of My Styles:
( I only clipped applicable styles. Check here for full descriptions.)
"ACTIVE AND REFLECTIVE LEARNERS
Everybody is active sometimes and reflective sometimes. Your preference for one category or the other may be strong, moderate, or mild. A balance of the two is desirable. If you always act before reflecting you can jump into things prematurely and get into trouble, while if you spend too much time reflecting you may never get anything done.
How can reflective learners help themselves?
If you are a reflective learner in a class that allows little or no class time for thinking about new information, you should try to compensate for this lack when you study. Don't simply read or memorize the material; stop periodically to review what you have read and to think of possible questions or applications. You might find it helpful to write short summaries of readings or class notes in your own words. Doing so may take extra time but will enable you to retain the material more effectively.
SENSING AND INTUITIVE LEARNERS
Everybody is sensing sometimes and intuitive sometimes. Your preference for one or the other may be strong, moderate, or mild. To be effective as a learner and problem solver, you need to be able to function both ways. If you overemphasize intuition, you may miss important details or make careless mistakes in calculations or hands-on work; if you overemphasize sensing, you may rely too much on memorization and familiar methods and not concentrate enough on understanding and innovative thinking.
How can sensing learners help themselves?
Sensors remember and understand information best if they can see how it connects to the real world. If you are in a class where most of the material is abstract and theoretical, you may have difficulty. Ask your instructor for specific examples of concepts and procedures, and find out how the concepts apply in practice. If the teacher does not provide enough specifics, try to find some in your course text or other references or by brainstorming with friends or classmates.
How can intuitive learners help themselves?
Many college lecture classes are aimed at intuitors. However, if you are an intuitor and you happen to be in a class that deals primarily with memorization and rote substitution in formulas, you may have trouble with boredom. Ask your instructor for interpretations or theories that link the facts, or try to find the connections yourself. You may also be prone to careless mistakes on test because you are impatient with details and don't like repetition (as in checking your completed solutions). Take time to read the entire question before you start answering and be sure to check your results
VISUAL AND VERBAL LEARNERS
Visual learners remember best what they see--pictures, diagrams, flow charts, time lines, films, and demonstrations. Verbal learners get more out of words--written and spoken explanations. Everyone learns more when information is presented both visually and verbally.
In most college classes very little visual information is presented: students mainly listen to lectures and read material written on chalkboards and in textbooks and handouts. Unfortunately, most people are visual learners, which means that most students do not get nearly as much as they would if more visual presentation were used in class. Good learners are capable of processing information presented either visually or verbally.
How can visual learners help themselves?
If you are a visual learner, try to find diagrams, sketches, schematics, photographs, flow charts, or any other visual representation of course material that is predominantly verbal. Ask your instructor, consult reference books, and see if any videotapes or CD-ROM displays of the course material are available. Prepare a concept map by listing key points, enclosing them in boxes or circles, and drawing lines with arrows between concepts to show connections. Color-code your notes with a highlighter so that everything relating to one topic is the same color.
SEQUENTIAL AND GLOBAL LEARNERS
Many people who read this description may conclude incorrectly that they are global, since everyone has experienced bewilderment followed by a sudden flash of understanding. What makes you global or not is what happens before the light bulb goes on. Sequential learners may not fully understand the material but they can nevertheless do something with it (like solve the homework problems or pass the test) since the pieces they have absorbed are logically connected. Strongly global learners who lack good sequential thinking abilities, on the other hand, may have serious difficulties until they have the big picture. Even after they have it, they may be fuzzy about the details of the subject, while sequential learners may know a lot about specific aspects of a subject but may have trouble relating them to different aspects of the same subject or to different subjects.
How can sequential learners help themselves?
Most college courses are taught in a sequential manner. However, if you are a sequential learner and you have an instructor who jumps around from topic to topic or skips steps, you may have difficulty following and remembering. Ask the instructor to fill in the skipped steps, or fill them in yourself by consulting references. When you are studying, take the time to outline the lecture material for yourself in logical order. In the long run doing so will save you time. You might also try to strengthen your global thinking skills by relating each new topic you study to things you already know. The more you can do so, the deeper your understanding of the topic is likely to be.
|You are an Animator |
This means that you are gifted at visualizing which lets you 'see' objects in three dimensional space. This is accompanied with an 'eye' for detail.
During this test you were asked questions that tested you on 7 abilities which constitute a person's aptitude - Verbal, Numerical, Perceptual, Spatial, Technical, Acuity and Analytical. It was based on how you scored in each of these abilities that we concluded that your aptitude profile ideally matches that of an Animator.
During "Discover your Career Skills" tests, you were asked various questions. Your answers judged where your abilities lie and what areas you need to improve in.
It is obvious from the below scales that your personality code is . This code is matched to the personality profile of one who is 'independent'. You will notice that the 'C' scale has not been considered as although this affects your personality it does not alter it. Hence, in the below personality profile we have given how your personality would be affected if you have a 'C' score or an 'A' score.
|You are independent.|
| You are suited to a career in which you can be self-reliant. Quite possibly you will want to follow your own urges and interests completely. If working with others, then you will like to have considerable independence. You may well show intolerance if things are not done your way, although you may be seen as somewhat casual in your responsibility towards them. Due to the fact that you operate to your own schedule and your own imperatives, it is often best chat those around you are not dependent upon you fin immediate support, bat that your contact or obligation to them is over a longer rime frame or on a more flexible basis. There is no doubt that you can make valuable, necessary contributions to a team. Indeed, people may think that they 'cannot do without you even tough you can be infuriating to work with at times. Your value often lies in the ideation and inspiration you can generate. You are probably best suited to a fast-paced sector where development and achievement are rapid. |
'Where you are also (C) you will be something of a dynamic achiever. Be careful that you are not seen as someone who 'leaves the debris for others to clear up'. This can happen where you use your energy to make quick changes and then go on to the next task before setting up a structure chat will carry on after you. If you are (A) then you may find more enjoyment and satisfaction in having someone around you who is capable of applying a steadying hand to what you do. Someone who can slow you down or direct you to some extent may have its frustrations but might prevent you to from getting into desperate situations that could have been avoided.
Each of the below scales provides two descriptions depending upon whether your score on that scale ranges from 0 to 4 or from 5 to 10. Therefore, the five aspects of personality provide 10 descriptions in all. The first of these is the C scale on which, for example, you will be coded C if your score is between 5 and 10, whilst you will be coded A if your score is between 0 and 4. Again, if your score on the 0 scale is 3, your code letter will be S, and so on with the other scales.
|C Scale (Confidence)|
|This is a general measure of how well you are able to cope with the various pressures and problems that arise in life and particularly at work.|
| Apprehensive |
You tend to doubt yourself, wondering whether you can rise to new challenges. You are inclined to worry and may nor take on all of which you are capable. You question yourself and are reluctant to be in a position where you may give a poor account of yourself or let others down. For the time being avoid careers that involve uncertainty or continual, unreasonable pressure. Your caution acts as a sensible means of protecting yourself from worry.
Doing what you know you can reasonably manage or taking one small step at a time allows you to cope. It means that through the avoidance of risk you avoid making any great mistakes. You are more capable than you give yourself credit for. People see your talents more clearly than you and are surprised that you do not project yourself more confidently. This dimension is not a permanent state of mind, so if you find a way to become confident you are almost bound to find that the other dimensions of personality change too.
| Confident |
You are keen to take on those challenges that interest you. Even when these are difficult you are willing to have a go. You are nor put off by fear of failure and the odd set back does not embarrass you long. Look for a career that is 'open ended' in the sense of providing new or different opportunities, not necessarily a completely new job, but one that offers new, challenging aspects. Others may admire your approach to life, since you are so positive. You can be unrealistic, thinking you have the necessary abilities before you do.
Although you learn as you go along, you might have done better had you held back until you were more prepared. Your spontaneity will enable you to be a high achiever. You have a fundamental belief in yourself and what you can do that is entirely justified and you should have good fun in doing all of those things you want. With experience you have probably learnt that you can achieve even more through allowing others to be involved with you.
|O Scale (Outgoing)|
|This is a scale that looks principally at the way you relate to people: do you want to be included with others a lot or a little? At the extreme you would want to spend almost all your time with others, whilst at the other you would want to work entirely on your own.|
| Solitary |
Your personality is 'introverted', that is; you reflect upon what is happening to you, mining matters over in your mind. You are self-reliant and come up with solutions to issues by using your own resources. You like your own company or that of just one or very few others. Choose careen accordingly.
It can happen that the contribution you could make is nor made apparent. You may be more talented than others, but what you can do is nor communicated as you are not seen as a leader.
Alternatively, people are surprised that you seem resourceful, but do not participate. You can be perceived as over serious or intolerant. On the positive side, certain individuals may have experienced your caring side, both introverts and extroverts who recognize something deeper in you. Although often slow in making acquaintances, you can form attachments that are long lasting.
| Outgoing |
With an 'extroverted' personality that is, one that goes out and is active in doing things. Naturally gregarious, you will particularly enjoy interacting with others and achieving with and through them. You will want a career that brings you into contact with lots of people so that you can use social flair to make contacts and influence people.
You may at times turn people off' through the sheer volume and power of your approach. You may be seen as insincere or manipulative. People may not immediately trust you as you appear to be over-friendly too soon or they suspect that you are 'out for yourself'.
Your social confidence is a great asset when it comes to coordinating or directing others. You are capable of arranging people and events. Because You have a talent for 'breaking the ice' socially you can effectively make contact with strangers and help them feel at ease and that they belong.
|D Scale (Detailed)|
|This scale looks at the way you approach your work: do you focus upon order and structure or do you prefer to deal with matters in an impulsive and laissez-faire way?|
| Relaxed |
You have a casual style that can be described as disorderly and unfocused. You may be seen as unbothered or that you take on too many things at once. You may seem to be 'flying by the seat of your pants'. The career that suits you best is one where you can Focus upon ways of doing things the strategic or longer, wider issues, rather than immediate, concrete problems.
Those aspects of you that are disorganized can make life very difficult for those dependent upon you. You can be perceived as keeping a team back. You may be offended that people leave you out of their schemes, but this is probably due to the fact that you let them down in the first place.
Your relaxed approach enables you see the underlying structure or longer-term implications You can also display a relaxed and tolerant manner with others that encourages them to work with you, especially on problems that are connected with ideas and possibilities You can be exciting to work with.
| Detailed |
In attending to what has to be done and approaching casks in an orderly way you cement your own and others' efforts. You are essential in making sure that matters are properly finished without untidy 'loose end'. You ensure that matters happen in the way intended so should look for a career in which you look at issues tactically, dealing with implementation of plans:
At times you can concentrate overmuch upon the orderliness of what you are doing to the extent that it really does not add any more to the issue. You may have 'overkilled' the issue or have ceased to 'see the wood for the trees'. People may see you as a little boring. They see you as holding them back due to the unnecessary small points you raise over minutiae.
Your careful preparation assists you in achieving often large and complex goals. Your orderlines can also permit others to find their own structure. You can often be seen as reliable and an essential member of a team without whom nothing would actually get done.
|I Scale (Intuitive)|
|This scale measures a preferred style: are you likely to be guided by Feelings and impressions or do you like to establish evidence? This scale is not about creativity, although it has some correlation with a quantifying style versus an expressive one.|
| Factual |
You think through problems in a logical way. Where there is uncertainty you look for facts. You are reassured when you can deal with concrete and objective reality. You like to deal with things that are measurable and can be made self-evident You are suited to careers where the facts of the matter can be ascertained through measurement or through same means of agreed quality.
You may find that you have not developed some of the 'feeling side' of your nature. You may be perceived as unfeeling or even 'cold' because you appear to be overly focused upon numbers or 'things' and do not take emotions or values into account.
By being active and taking action where there is opportunity to create something definite you can be a real achiever. You can be particularly effective in producing something coherent or tangible that others can understand or apply in some practical way.
| Intuitive |
Your interest is in possibilities and the abstract. Conceptualization is more important than realization. You are sensitive to Impressions and can make connections between seemingly disparate events or ideas. You are often suited to a career where you have a guiding or advisory responsibility because you can see the wider implications, particularly cultural or emotional issues.
At times your thinking may appear to be 'woolly' or imprecise. Experiencing the truth of an issue yourself is nor the same as communicating it adequately to others so you need to- ensure that what you do is appropriated and actually wanted. If nor, you may feel hurt and blame others for your feelings of rejection.
Through your insight you may produce something that others experience as uplifting or magical, making an impact either through something you create literally or in the relationship you develop between yourself and others.
|T Scale (Toughness)|
|This scale measures the degree to which your objectives are concerned with what and how people achieve externally or the impact upon them internally. The orientation is tough and materialistic, or sensitive and spiritual.|
| Empathetic |
Your response to decisions and to events is to perceive the implications for people and their lives. You believe in the potential of people, wanting them to be induded and have responsibility. Your understanding of others' situations will bring out their best. You would enjoy a career in which you were able to support people and develop their potential, particularly in an organization where there is a commitment to involve people.
You may be seen as 'soft' or a 'do-gooder', so you are best giving help when it is asked for and refraining from intruding where it is not. It is possible to be unrealistic about people's intentions or to be 'taken in' and manipulated.
With the sensitivity that allows you to identify with others you can be the catalyst that assists them to give of their best. You can be particularly valuable as a motivator by instinctively recognizing what will make people fulfilled.
Your objective is to achieve efficiently and quickly. You may have a vision of what it is possible to achieve and your talent is driving to attain it against all odds. You are particularly goad at a career in a 'troubleshooting' position where immediate action is required to head off impending disaster. In such situations people are often willing to suspend the niceties simply in order to survive!
You can be seen as a 'rough' character, even as a bully. People may withhold information from you because they are frightened that you will dismiss or humiliate them, only wanting to 'hear what you want to hear'. Sometimes you hold on to a plan for too long because of stubbornness.
Your achievements can be outstanding when you are 'given your head' to do things your own way and where your decisions and methods do nor require countersignature or approval.
(from 123test.com) 7/31/2001
Your answers determine the importance that the nine career values have for you. The nine career values are Wealth, Service/Dedication, Entrepreneurial Creativity, Autonomy/Independence, Security/Stability, Power, Technical/Functional Competence, Social Relationships, and Status.
The graph below shows how important each career value is to you. After the graph, each value is explained in detail, in the order of its importance to you. At the end of the page, we explain ways you can further investigate your own personal career values.
Wealth is related to the importance an individual attaches to material gain. Making money is often the most important reason for working. A high income and earning ever more money is an important career value and it determines a person's career choices. For such a person, a high or higher income is an important measure of success.
Autonomy can be an important value. People who find this value important have a need for independence and want to be able to make their own decisions. It should not come as a surprise that these people often are, or want to be their own boss. Their career choices are determined by the degree to which they can work autonomously and according to their own rules.
This person's main goal is to come up with new ideas or products. The important aspect of this value is being innovative. A procedural work environment that leaves little room for personal initiatives will be experienced as very restrictive. Creative people often prefer to work alone or in small teams.
Impressing others and prestige are primary motivators. This person likes being a member of a privileged group. Formal recognition of accomplishments is appreciated. They like to be looked up to. Status symbols, such as titles and official recognitions, are openly displayed. Making money or gaining power are not goals in and of themselves, but are more often just a way to obtain status.
These people like to be the ones pulling the strings. Power and influence are important aspects in their careers. They are driven by the desire to control or influence others, the environment, or the situation. In their career choices, the question of whether or not a job will give them more influence is the most important. They enjoy networking and to them, befriending or contacting someone new is often a way of gaining more influence.
This person's most important value is the desire to contribute to the greater good. Based on personal values and norms, this person wants to "improve the world" or contribute to society in a meaningful way. This person will often set aside his/her own interests. Service-oriented people are driven by how they can help others.
Social relationships are very important to people who find this career value important. Sociability and friendship are important reasons to have a job. There is no sharp boundary between work and private life. These people's career choices are driven by whether they will have or meet enough colleagues. How much they like their job, depends on the degree to which they can work with others and meet people.
These individuals like being good at something. They are usually inquisitive and want to be perceived as the expert, the company's specialist. Specialists prefer to work on their own. Using their skills to meet a challenge is important to them.
For these people, long-term security is important. A job is seen mainly as a means to secure a pension and a mortgage. The level of income is seen as less important than the security of an income and being able to hold on to a job. These people often look at how stable a company is when choosing a job. Reducing financial insecurity is important to people who find this career value important.
Yes. In a sense anything you find important is a personal work value. The career values outlined in this test, however, make up the bulk of what most people find important. You can make your list as well. Think of additional things you like or ask others for their feedback. List what you are good at or what you hate to do. What gets you out of bed in the morning?
You have learned about the possible work-related values that apply to you. Now find out if those values match with the job you currently have. Or do they fit work you think you would like to do? If they do, congratulations, you have a higher chance of being successful and happy. Do they not match? Here's what you can do.
Take a moment to rethink what you really enjoy doing. If you can, change your work or work activities. Do not let your work change you. If you cannot find the things you value in your work, perhaps you can find part of them outside your work. Either as a volunteer or in a hobby. Look for ways to combine doing what you enjoy in your free time.
Your values may also shift over time. If money and power are values you once appreciated, it may turn out that this is no longer the case. Younger people tend to appreciate structure and the people around them, whereas older people tend to appreciate self-realization and adding meaning to their lives.
Your test results are only a snapshot of what you currently think is important. At another time in your life, the results may be completely different. Think long term. Get feedback from others, explore the market, make a plan, and stick to it.

Want to know more? See complete quadrants description here.
It is most essential that you recognize that you are a charismatic leader who loves to achieve at the highest level. Your creativity is getting other people to do what you want or envision. You are a realistic "Pied Piper" that everyone follows.
If you are on a team or doing a project, you are the spontaneous motivator and communication leader. Everyone knows and recognizes your energetic and enthusiastic direction. Your networking with others reaches far and wide. You are the ultimate politician.
Your manner is always extremely positive and confident. When everyone else is feeling discouraged, you provide an individual and group spark that rekindles inspiration and rejuvenates excitement to continue forward. Your threshold for positive leadership is extremely high. In fact, the worse the situation, the more you thrive on it. You're like a cat with nine lives.
Above all else, 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. If you're isolated from people for a long period of time, your energy's focus seems to become depressed.
The time when your energy's focus doesn't become depressed in isolation is when you are positively engaged in creative, optional and strategic thinking. It's here that your intuitive and analogical thinking process combines with some factual and logical thoughts to give you a new, holistic perspective on what you're doing or planning to do. When you share these conclusions with others, they usually are amazed at how you developed these dynamic missions and/or strategies. When you are presenting or explaining something that has been developed, your presence makes each person feel that you are personally addressing his/her individual needs.
Yes, contact with others is more important than breathing for you. You can't live without it. When you walk down a corridor or a street, you're always greeting or stopping to talk 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 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.
Even if you're not knowledgeable about a subject area under discussion, you come across as smooth and intelligent. It doesn't matter 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 people and what turns them on.
Conversations and dialogues provide you with the opportunity to learn best. 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 studying with these groups can provide you with the focus and needed detail to study and learn effectively.
You usually don't like doing the details or grunt work yourself. In fact, you'll try to get others to do it for you. But, when that ploy doesn't work and you have to do it alone to meet a deadline, you'll concentrate, focus and finish what needs to be done. But, that's only after you've procrastinated until the last-minute. Then, when the tasks or project are completed, you'll want to celebrate this successful achievement with others!
You don't like to focus on details or facts without being shown the complete picture. A boring and stiff supervisor or teacher creates motivational problems for you. However, if straight facts and dry details are embellished by a boss's or a teacher's personal anecdotes or jokes, then these associations trigger your memory and motivation to work. Just memorizing or doing something, particularly if it doesn't have any meaning or pragmatic application for you, means that you have to concentrate and focus over a longer period of time than you usually like to do. But, again, at the last minute, you can do it.
Along with that, you are an extremely active person, moving quickly from one person to another, one group of people to another or from one task to another. You must always be moving, motivating and/or talking. That is why your favorite way of achieving things is through direct dialogue. You innately organize others and when push comes to shove, you can keep them focused and working by relating to them in many different positive ways.
Just remember, when the opportunity presents itself and it usually does, you are number one, not just in your eyes, but in the eyes of others. Also, remember what gets you there - your positive, open and creative communication style that makes everyone an important participant in your presence.
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:
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:
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 Left-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
When communicating with another Right-brain Concrete person, you are likely to experience the following characteristics:
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:
Dr. Holland did not say that a person is just one of these types. Then there would be only six types of people in the world. Instead, any one person can have interests associated with all of the six types. When you rank the types, starting with those you have the most interest in to those you have the least interest in, you get your specific Holland Code.
There are some 720 different combinations possible, like ISERAC, AIRSEC, or CSERIA.

When Barbie first came onto the scene in 1958, she was unique. Unlike the other dolls on store shelves, Barbie was no child. And playing with her, young girls for generations have acted out visions of their future. Barbie is more than just a plastic doll; she's a fantasy.
As Barbie shows, when people make a purchase, they buy more than a product or service. They also buy something that's harder to put your finger on. Marketing majors learn how to discover the special something that people want and how to convince them that their product has it.
Marketing majors learn how to create and sell new products and services in ways that will build a large and loyal group of customers.
“Marketing is a dynamic field that combines both creative ability and analytical skills. ”
Debbie Thorne McAlister, Chair, Department of Marketing,
Texas State University, San Marcos
Students in this major prepare for work as sales representatives and sales managers. They learn how to promote a product directly to a customer. Topics of study include psychology, public speaking, and professional ethics.
A good marketer understands how to appeal to people's wants and needs. They look for the human connection in everyday items and situations. They are part psychologist, part politician and part creative director.
Many advertising and marketing jobs rely on energetic people who speak a language of passion and emotion. But alongside how they speak, marketers also must be able to listen to what people and clients tell them to be more effective. This is because most marketing and advertising is a negotiation between the advertiser and the buyer.
Advertisers and marketers are naturally competitive people that love ideas and narratives as much as they love giving people what they want and need. Not only do marketers work with clients and buyers, but they work with many different types of people from different industries every day, so it's a good idea to possess a versatile personality. In other words, if you're thinking of being in advertising, you should at least enjoy meeting and working with people.

Your career personality type is The Big Picture Person. You likes conceptualizing a project and enjoy debating with others. You get your best ideas when you have someone to bounce them off of, and you feel most comfortable when you feel you have a handle on the future of your work.
from psychometricshapes.co.uk (2/5/12)
You are a rare person who is equally comfortable working alone and participating in teamwork projects.
Your role on a team is twofold: you are the catalyst who encourages others to participate, and you are the idea personwho loves to brainstorm. If a team is lucky enough to include you, they will both enjoy the experience and develop creative solutions to their problems.
Since you are primarily a right-brained thinker, you see the "big picture" and are more interested in "Why" than in "How". You are not detail-oriented; you are conceptual, creative, and intuitive. You are a change agent, not a maintainer. You get bored doing repetitive, routine work. You need variety in your work that allows you to "switch gears" often.
Your natural tendency is to be friendly and caring toward others, and you will always give others a second chance. However, when someone lets you down enough times, you finally will "write them off." You have particular difficulty with slow thinkers and those who will not make decisions without thorough analysis. (You must curb your natural dislike of Box people.) This is because you are bright, a quick-thinker and a very spontaneous person. When you see a solution, you want to run with it. Others seem to slow you down.
You are often disappointed in colleagues, but you try your best to disguise your feelings. You are an excellentcommunicator and you have the ability to motivate others to do their best. You are a natural born teacher and mentor. Under your tutelage, students will flower.
At work: You bring sunshine into any workplace! You are well liked, positive, and have an almost childlike need for play and fun. However, you are very disorganized and have difficulty with deadlines and details. Your follow-up skills are non-existent. Your office looks like a hurricane hit it; papers are strewn all over the floor. You abhor paperwork, rules, and regulations. You are a knowledge worker, not an administrator.
You will have difficulty in a traditional management position and are best suited to high-level project team leadership. You are more a leader, than a manager. You like to make a mess and have someone else clean it up. You would thrive in an academic setting with bright colleagues and little administrative responsibility. You need to work on self-discipline and financial management.
At leisure: You need loving friends around you. You have strong social needs and enjoy being the "Life of the Party." You are the first one up on the stage at the Karaoke Bar. You are a born entertainer. Your sense of humour is excellent, but tends to the "weird" side. You sometimes embarrass your friends. In an ideal world, you would not have to work at all...you would just play all day.
Your hobbies are numerous, diverse, and constantly changing. You are not athletic (somewhat clumsy, in fact) and prefer group activities and mind games. You enjoy science fiction and your musical tastes run to the unusual, offbeat counter-culture groups. You love the theatre. Your personal style is eccentric; you often wear clothing that doesn't match. You prefer large patterns and t-shirts with political commentary on the front. You like to make a statement.
Set a personal goal to GET ORGANIZED! You're driving everyone crazy! Clean up your office, meet at least one deadline, and, then, invite everyone to party after work to celebrate what you accomplished today!
