General Description

Often lose items but is good at finding them. Accommodating in daily life. Struggle with routine and strict instructions. Actively resists. Poor with everyday tasks, good with unconventional solutions. Feel a surge of energy in debate, improvises, unafraid to intensify. Excited by argumentation.

As a leader

See people's talents and how they can be applied in business well. Motivate for new achievements and innovative implementations in work. A pioneer. Can spark interest in their ideas due to originality in presentation and unconventional problem-solving. Relationships with employees are not always easy despite a democratic-command style of management. Difficulties arise from poor monitoring of interpersonal relations in the team. The main task is to find supporters for the implementation of ideas. Focused on a global prospective vision, thus occasionally overlook routine tasks and details. However, compensates by finding team members to handle secondary matters. Can select a good team, as they can see the working potential in people and place each one appropriately according to their potential capabilities. Set work priorities well. Expect thoughtfulness and analysis from subordinates, often getting frustrated with 'fools'. By their logic, everyone should have guessed. Their innovation disrupts the previously established system. Therefore, they often face many obstacles that need to be overcome for innovations. Thus, this management style is not always suitable for everyone. It's better suited for innovative systems where potential can be realized. Not suitable for leadership positions with rigid structures, as they would start doing things their own way, which would not be conducive to working in the army or other force structures.

As an employee

Excel at seeing prospects and potential in tasks. Mobilize when faced with obstacles or complex challenges. Take on even risky tasks, testing intellectual capabilities. Brainstorming epitomizes this sociotype, utilizing not only a natural ability to quickly generate ideas but also to accelerate the workflow. Capable of managing in tricky situations and quickly adapting to changes. However, struggle with focusing on details, making routine and regular tasks challenging. Better suited for projects and tough challenges as attention span is unstable. Each new project sparks interest and mobilizes resources that can be directed towards engaging and constructive activities. Require fair assessment of efforts. Issues related to money can lead to conflicts. These are not people who will pass up financial opportunities.


Choose a field where you will be interested in developing and utilizing your inventiveness. This will not only allow you to engage in your favorite activities but also feel like you are progressing towards new opportunities.
