The Engaged Idealist
Engaged Idealists are extroverted and helpful. Others find them to be very congenial and inspiring - especially as they are always willing to see the best in the other person. Their humor, their energy and their optimism attract other people. Engaged Idealists are very good at communicating and are good at convincing and firing on others. That is why it is a matter of course that they often take over the leading role in groups. This personality type often produces very charismatic persons.Engaged Idealists have an unusually strong ability to empathize. They are tolerant and generous towards others; they sometimes tend to idealize their friends. They always try to suit everybody and want their relationships to be harmonious and satisfactory. To achieve this, they are prepared to invest a great deal and to put their requirements last. As Engaged Idealists are very considerate, there is the danger of them sacrificing and overexerting themselves for others. In their job, they therefore have to be very careful not to develop a burnout syndrome.
Engaged Idealists are reliable, well organized and love structuring complicated situations. They have difficulty accepting criticism; they quickly feel hurt and misunderstood. Their perfectionism also influences their love life - they look for the perfect relationship for life. Once they have made their decision, they are faithful, well-balanced and loving partners. However, should they get involved with the wrong person, it can happen that they allow themselves to be exploited for a long time before they end the relationship.

As an Engaged Idealist you are one of the extroverted personality types. You enjoy working in a colorfully diverse group of people who interest and inspire you. Working all by yourself is not your thing. You enjoy emphasizing with those around you and soon everybody senses the high priority and importance people represent to you. Therefore a team-oriented project is just right for you.Your insight into human nature, your feel for your colleague’s and/or subordinate’s positive sides and potentials and your preparedness to encourage and support everyone around you to the best of your ability quickly brings them closer to you. People like to ask you for advice, appreciate your caring ways and appreciate to be taken under your wings. Within your means you are always available to others who need you because you yourself enjoy the ultimate gratification of being able to help others to make the best of themselves and to be successful mediating conflicts among people.
You are well suited to be an executive: It is difficult to resist your charisma, your enthusiasm and your ability to excite and motivate others. Authoritarian management attitudes are not your thing; it is your way to convince others of a project’s reason and significance who will then look forward to follow you voluntarily. You place a lot of value on creating the willingness to cooperate in others and with your gift to motivate that usually comes easy to you. You do not enjoy conflicts, need harmony and invest lots of energy and time in a good working climate and a harmonic relationship of your colleagues among each other.

Why Job Satisfaction Matters
Low job satisfaction is a serious risk to your health! It's scientifically proven that low job satisfaction will lead to burnout, lowered self-esteem, anxiety, and depression.
The University of Manchester analyzed 500 studies of job satisfaction, incorporating over 250.000 employees in a large variety of different organisations based throughout the world. It concluded that dissatisfaction at work can be hazardous to an employee’s mental health and well-being. On the other side, job satisfaction can significantly contribute to your life satisfaction. Psychologists call this the "spillover effect": people who are satisfied with work also tend to be satisfied with other specific domains of life and with life overall. Your perfect job will not only keep you healthy, it will also help you to lead a happy life.
Your work is your most important life activity in terms of time and energy
The Bureau of Statistics of the United States Department of Labor has calculated the average workday for employed persons who live in households with children under 18. These individuals spent an average of 8.7 hours working or in work-related activities, 7.7 hours sleeping, 2.6 hours doing leisure and sports activities, and 1.3 hours caring for others, including their children.
This adds up to a total of 110.000 hours that you will be spending at work during your lifetime. Stop wasting your precious time and energy in a work situation that does not fit your needs!
Read what our customers say
After years of being dissatisfied in my role thinking that I was missing my 'calling', iPersonic showed me that in fact I was in the right profession. It helped me harness what was important to me in a working environment and how I like to be managed.
Thank you for the very detailed information relating to your personality types. I have found it so helpful, both the general information, which you offer for free, but also the career and relationship profile. I have recommended it to three other friends who I know have been on your site as a result. I am also recommending the sight to a counsellor who I am currently seeing as well. I used certain aspects from my career profile to write my last resume for a new job, which gave me a lot more confidence to highlight my strengths. And as it turned out, the job I am applying for is in the list which you recommended would suit my personality.
I found the career profile extremely useful. Too many of us have chosen a career based on courses that were available to us in school, suggestions we got from a parent or school counselor - or we might just have gravitated toward work that we thought would be easy, prestigious, or high-paying. But job satisfaction has everything to do with what makes you feel fulfilled as a person. Finding a career path that really resonates with your values and your personal style is so important if you want to enjoy your work and feel like you're spending your life in a worthwhile way. The iPersonic website has a great approach of giving you broad principles that apply if you're looking for a complete career change or for ideas on how you might improve your current job.
