  • Empathizer

    Your objective is to be empathetic to others' emotions. No one can step into the others' shoes better than you - it comes so naturally to you. You might not agree with every perspective and emotion, but most importantly you are able to understand what the person is going though. It allows you to have personalized approach to everyone, to see their differences and specialties, to include them and to treat fairly. Naturally, it draws others to you, as you know exactly how they feel. In a team, such a strength based on kindness can be essential for mitigating conflicts by making sure all team members are aware of each other's emotions and challenges.

  • Problem Solver

    Your objective is to solve problems. Any breakdowns are normally demotivating to the majority of people, but not for you. At the contrary, when something does not work the way it should be, it provides you an opportunity to analyze symptoms of a problem, identify what's wrong and find the solution. In other words, you are a great problem solver. What makes you particularly special is that instead of abandoning - your goal is to restore something to its true glory. In a team, everyone knows you as a person who does not shy away from a problem, but actually fixes things to their normal functioning.

  • Winner

    Your objective is to compete with others to win. In your mind, the saying 'participating means winning' is for losers. Competitions are created to find one winner because in the end your result is measured in comparison with others. There is no one but you who knows the real taste of victory. Since you compete to win, you also tend to participate in competitions where you feel more likely to win. Sometimes it might not even matter what you are competing for - but it's a mere fact of comparison that excites you. People like being in teams with you, because you take the competition to a completely new level, infuse passion into it and make sure the victory is getting celebrated accordingly.

  • Strategist

    Your objective is to see the big picture. Have you heard about 'taking the helicopter view'? In your case, you are constantly on this helicopter! That's not even a skill, it's a special way of seeing things - a special perspective on the world at large, where everything is interconnected. While others could be confused by your short-terms steps, in your mind you have a clear multi-step strategy on how to arrive at the desired outcome and to avoid paths leading nowhere. Such a strategist is an essential asset for any team determined to find a clear direction in a complex situation.

  • Time Keeper

    Your objective is to set timelines and deadlines. Because of your dislike of surprises, you love to plan. You don't necessarily need to control everything and everyone, but there must be order and predictability in the world around you. You unconsciously impose the structure onto everything by setting up routines, timelines and deadlines. If you set up plans, you make sure you follow them through thoroughly. Your need for structure becomes very useful in a team or a project since you can bring order and discipline to maintain progress and productivity.
