General Description

Stability and order are paramount. At work, this manifests as precision, specificity, neatness, composure, and a desire to understand reasons. Delving deeply into a narrow field, especially with logic, involves detailed work and careful event preparation. Moods are subordinated to business interests. Appearance is neat, personal belongings are kept in order, and self-care is prioritized. There is a strong dislike for others taking things without asking and handling them improperly. Usually dressing beautifully, especially women, emotions are subordinated to logic, and life's hardships are endured stoically. A representative of Stoic philosophy, goals and principles are known and adhered to despite unfavorable societal conditions. Reserved by nature, introversion is not always apparent. Social subtypes are very sociable but do not over-disclose. If unwilling to share information, evasion or joking off direct questions occurs. Information is never disclosed involuntarily. A person of willful endurance, patience, and resilience, tasks are completed when necessary, often with significant effort. In non-fundamental matters, minimal effort is exerted. During danger and confusion, initial bewilderment is brief; regrouping and decisive action follow, with directions given to others. A sober realist, assessments dismiss fantasies, assumptions, and conjectures. Debates are fact-based. Decision-making involves careful argument comparison, resulting in firm conclusions. Interactions with acquaintances and colleagues are reserved and polite, creating an impression of intelligence, smartness, and culture. In close relationships, however, toughness, stubbornness, and unyielding traits emerge. Sociability in small circles coexists with a need for solitude, which does not affect the psyche. Poor tolerance for jokes, hints, and mockeries directed at them is evident. Sharp, unexpected, unjustified changes cause significant distress, reducing the breadth of view. Starting afresh is challenging. Despite an appearance of stress resistance, stress is internalized and accumulated, seldom shared. Men of this type rarely visit psychologists, leading to psychosomatic problems. Initially trusting and positive, orientation is towards goodness. However, life’s unpleasantness, deceptions, and negativity lead to strong attachments to people and surroundings. Trust is long-lasting but, once broken by perceived dishonesty, is lost forever, becoming almost impossible to regain, even in cases of coincidences or accidents.

As a leader

A directive manager communicates through commands and demands. This manager's approach is unilateral, issuing directives that are executed without contention. With a focus on solving technical tasks, their strong logic helps set clear goals and achieve practical results. Skeptical of innovations and risks, this manager does not engage in unclear matters; everything is pre-verified. Their logic aims at building a stable and fundamental system, considering all details and aiming for thoroughness. Treating subordinates responsibly, each person is placed in their 'proper place,' continuously refining the system and organizational aspects. Clear presentation is crucial, and misunderstandings or misinterpretations cause frustration. As a sober realist at work, indulgence in or appreciation of imagination is absent. This manager strives to explain unclear things logically and methodically, clarifying ambiguities and becoming irritated by fantasies. Susceptible to the emotions of others, this manager readily identifies poor organization and shortcomings, knowing how to rectify them. Valuing a cohesive and well-tuned team, promoting reliable performers is common. Ethical differences among subordinates can be troubling, sometimes leading to uncertainty in handling them. With a propensity for dominance in the group, especially when focused on realizing an idea, this manager distances those who disagree. Detached and demanding, intolerant of obstacles, stern management methods and coercive pressure on subordinates are employed when work needs to be done strictly. Focused on order and structure, increased power and influence lead to greater demands for clarity and compliance, using coercion and discreditation. Higher social status brings out a more dictatorial approach, strongly defending the interests of the system. Lower in rank, adherence to the rules of the game is maintained, controlling only their own territory. Emotional conflicts are avoided, yet there is a need to emotionally influence others, pushing through their will and vision of solutions. Close personal interactions are avoided, and there is distrust about spreading information about oneself, preferring thorough contemplation of situations, details, and the logic behind people's actions.

Trustworthy with responsible and organizational tasks, this executor builds a reputation as a reliable employee, performing work with high quality and attention to detail. Systematic and quality-driven, they require time to complete tasks, finding haste or unexpected assignments challenging. Clear instructions are crucial, as guessing or figuring things out independently can lead to stress or paralysis. Suitable for jobs with a steady pace and no urgency, they react poorly to changes in plans or the necessity of redoing work, becoming agitated if pushed or if their strategy is altered. Material and financial incentives serve as strong motivators. Expecting payment based on achievements and competence, they prefer jobs allowing for thorough thinking and a moderate pace. Often perfectionists, they aim for flawless execution, spending significant time studying the matter and making well-informed conclusions. Possessing a wealth of information, they analyze deeply, providing clear instructions and explanations of complex schemes. Trusting only official information sources, they recheck data meticulously and reject illogical information. Orderly and meticulous, they maintain a well-organized workplace, disliking any unauthorized movement of their things. Uninterrupted focus is essential.
