The Sensitive Doer
Sensitive Doers are gentle, modest and reserved persons. They cope well with everyday life and like their privacy. With their quiet, optimistic nature, they are also good, sought-after listeners and other people feel well in their company.All in all, this type is the most likable and friendliest of all personality types. Tolerance and their regard for others distinguish their personality. They are very caring, generous and always willing to help. They are open to and interested in everything that is new or unknown to them. However, if their inner value system or their sense of justice is hurt, Sensitive Doers can suddenly and surprisingly become forceful and assertive.
Sensitive Doers enjoy the comforts life offers to the full. They are very happy in everyday life. Sensitive Doers are often gifted artists or very good craftsmen. Creativity, imagination and an especially keen perception are just a few of their strong points. Sensitive Doers are very presence-oriented; long-term planning and preparations do not appeal to them. They take life as it comes and react flexibly to daily demands. They do not like too much routine and predictability. Their talents come more to the fore when work processes are variable and there are not so many rules. Sensitive Doers like to work alone; if they are part of a team, they do not get involved in competitive or power games and prefer living and working together harmoniously and openly.
Sensitive Doers are completely satisfied with a small, close circle of friends as their need for social contacts is not very marked. Here, too, they avoid conflicts - quarrels and disputes put considerable strain on them. Sensitive Doers are often very fond of animals and are very good with small children. As partner, this type is loyal and reliable and is willing to invest a lot in a relationship. Mutual respect and tolerance are very important to Sensitive Doers. Their love of pleasure makes them a pleasant companion with whom one can experience intensive moments. They like to look after their partner with attentiveness and small gifts and are very sensitive to the partner’s needs - often more than to their own. However, should they meet the wrong person, they run the risk of being taken advantage of. They are then deeply disappointed.
Adjectives that describe your type: introverted, practical, emotional, spontaneous, sensitive, peace-loving, reserved, gentle, good-natured, independent, empathetic, friendly, playful, carefree, sympathetic, relaxed, quiet, modest, pleasure-loving, loyal, obliging, caring, helpful, optimistic
Your type, although belonging to the introverted doers, is also the most amiable and friendly in his dealings with others of all types. This special combination is the reason for your great flexibility. It enables you to work excellently and contently on your own to suit any situation, but also achieve extraordinary popularity and professional satisfaction as a member of a team.Here the precondition is a friendly, collegiate environment characterized by harmony and mutual respect. You need a working environment without intrigue or political manipulation, and with the least possible deployment of elbows. Cooperation rather than confrontation, should be the order of the day. Colleagues as well as superiors equally appreciate your unassuming, congenial nature and your unbelievable sensitivity plus your attentive and generous ways toward others. In your presence, people simply have to be comfortable; you are not competition oriented, whatsoever.
You are almost limitlessly tolerant and always prepared to accept others as they are. As a consequence, you very rarely have problems getting along with different people. The only exception: when your private value system is hurt or you notice injustice somewhere. In that case, you can react quite forcefully but even in the most heated dispute you always try to argue respectfully and fairly.
Therefore it is very important that your work is compatible with your (high) values and ideals. In the long term, it is not satisfactory to just do any job with the sole objective of finding money in your account at the end of the month. You need the feeling of being able to totally identify yourself with your job, and to fully support whatever it is that you do every day. Ideally, your usually more practically- than theoretically-oriented activity provides you with tangible results. Then you can walk home at night feeling that you made the world just a little bit better than it had been in the morning - preferably for another human being.

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.
