About You

Everyone is different and there is no right or wrong way to be. These paragraphs describe how you likely show up in your natural style.

Damien is a good problem solver and troubleshooter, always seeking new ways to solve old problems. Sometimes he becomes emotionally involved in the decision-making process. He prefers authority equal to his responsibility. He will work long hours until a tough problem is solved. After it is solved, Damien may become bored with any routine work that follows. When faced with a tough decision, he will try to sell you on his ideas. Many people see his decisions as high-risk decisions. However, after the decision is made, he tends to work hard for a successful outcome. He finds it easy to share his opinions on solving work-related problems. He should realize that at times he needs to think a project through, beginning to end, before starting the project.

Damien tends to influence people by being direct, friendly, and results-oriented. He may lose interest in what others are saying if they ramble and fail to speak to the point. His active mind is already moving ahead. He should exhibit more patience and ask questions to make sure that others have understood what he has said. He likes people who present their case effectively. When they do, he can then make a quicker assessment or decision. Damien likes people who give him options as compared to their opinions. The options may help him make decisions, and he values his own opinion over that of others! He challenges people who volunteer their opinions. He tends to be intolerant of people who seem ambiguous or think too slowly. He may sometimes mask his feelings in friendly terms. If pressured, Damien’s true feelings may emerge.
