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.

Share your personality type with your friends:

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.

How your type should deal with stress

Sensitive Doers have a particularly close relationship with animals that can play an important role in the matter of stress reduction: jogging with their dog, spending some time on horse back enjoying the scenery, keeping busy with the carrier pigeons and having a conversation with the favorite African Grey Parrot – anything like that really benefits stressed Sensitive Doers. When asked for their relaxing hobbies, many of them mention outdoor activities: hiking, working in the garden, mountain climbing, strolling, skiing, climbing or anything of that nature. Additionally it should not be forgotten that Sensitive Doers are good with their hands. Their best opportunity for perfectly relaxing is acting out in combination with their artistic vein! Consequently Sensitive Doers frequently enjoy painting, drawing, tinkering, sculpturing, carving and other crafts. Since they are very pleasure-loving personality types, many of them are also very ambitious cooks spending hours in the kitchen and conjuring up delicious dishes. Last but not least, for this personality type music is a very reliable source to relax with; no matter whether they sit on the piano or the drums themselves or just enjoy as a listener.

How your type should exercise

When training Sensitive Doers prefer to be outside. However, of all Doers they are the ones with less thirst for adrenaline. In matters of sports the pleasure aspect is more important to them; consequently Sensitive Doers also prefer the more sanguine sports like jogging, hiking, walking, trekking, horse back riding or canoeing. They are totally satisfied as long as they can spend time in beautiful scenery. Although they are affable contemporaries, as introverted personality types they prefer to experience all of this solo rather than in the company of others. Especially where sports are concerned they feel that way because this allows them to concentrate on themselves and their bodies without being distracted by other people. Incidentally, an exception is dancing – they always enjoy that regardless whether with-or without a partner. Primarily because they are not really competition oriented Sensitive Doers are not all that interested in team sports which they would only experience as stressful when their team mates would be dragging them to the competitions. They really also enjoy combining their need for exercise with their love for animals: For them the absolute perfect stress relief of all is sitting on the back of a horse or walking in the woods with a dog by their side.

How your type should care about nutrition

Doers are born Bon Vivants and that also includes Sensitive Doers. As all feeling personality types and particularly in stress situations they tend to ‘console’ themselves with food (especially confectionary and fast food) or even occasionally with alcohol. Simply said then they eat too much and too irresponsibly. Later on that can become uncomfortably noticeable on the scale of where their health is concerned. Afterwards Sensitive Doers are upset at themselves because their appearance and impact on others are certainly important to them. Therefore Sensitive Doers would do well to develop alternate strategies to control their emotions. A perfect start could be to eliminate the sentence: “Now nothing matters, anyway, now I’ll just finish the entire table / bag / . . .. from their standard vocabulary. For feeling/perceiving personality types like Sensitive Doers this represents a typical stumbling block on the subject of uncontrolled eating.
