The Spontaneous Idealist
Spontaneous Idealists are creative, lively and open-minded persons. They are humorous and dispose of a contagious zest for life. Their enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. They enjoy being together with other people and often have an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential.Spontaneous Idealists are masters of communication and very amusing and gifted entertainers. Fun and variety are guaranteed when they are around. However, they are sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to their direct and sometimes critical nature.
This personality type is a keen and alert observer; they miss nothing which is going on around them. In extreme cases, they tend to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and are inwardly always ready to jump. Life for them is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, they quickly become bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. Their creativity, their imaginativeness and their originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas - they then leave the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, Spontaneous Idealists attach great value to their inner and outward independence and do not like accepting a subordinate role. They therefore have problems with hierarchies and authorities.
If you have a Spontaneous Idealist as your friend, you will never be bored; with them, you can enjoy life to the full and celebrate the best parties. At the same time, they are warm, sensitive, attentive and always willing to help. If Spontaneous Idealists have just fallen in love, the sky is full of violins and their new partners are showered with attention and affection. This type then bubbles over with charm, tenderness and imagination. But, unfortunately, it soon becomes boring for them once the novelty has worn off. Boring everyday life in a partnership is not for them so that many Spontaneous Idealists slip from one affair into another. However, should the partner manage to keep their curiosity alive and not let routine and familiarity gain the upper hand, Spontaneous Idealists can be inspiring and loving partners.
Adjectives that describe your type: spontaneous, enthusiastic, idealistic, extroverted, theoretical, emotional, relaxed, friendly, optimistic, charming, helpful, independent, individualistic, creative, dynamic, lively, humorous, full of zest for life, imaginative, changeable, adaptable, loyal, sensitive, inspiring, sociable, communicative, erratic, curious, open, vulnerable
As a Spontaneous 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 in a “secluded room” is not your thing. Your sense for the motivation of others is almost eerie. You constantly observe that which happens around you and have no problems noticing all sorts of things simultaneously or communicating with several people at the same time.Your enthusiasm is contagious to others and that is why your colleagues and friends all appreciate you as an important member of your team. Your articulateness and your sensitive ear for nuances in conversations with others obviously play a role. For you, this team-oriented environment is very important because you need to receive positive feedback and recognition like other people need air to breathe. It would be practically impossible for you to contribute everything you need to maintain your high ideals, by yourself.
Variety, challenges and fun are important ingredients of your area of responsibility. You appreciate receiving new stimulation, meeting new people, and continuously collecting unique experiences. However, too much routine, too much detail work and the necessity to stick with one project for a very long time is not your thing. Your strength are creative problem solutions, discovering new ways and opportunities, the conceptualization of new ideas on one hand, but not so much their concrete implementation on the other. Ideally, you have a staff of capable colleagues that takes over your concepts and runs with them.

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!

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.
How your type should deal with stressIn stress situations Spontaneous Idealists tend to eat irresponsibly or too much. Among other things this has to do with the fact that it is their only familiar reaction when it comes to taking care of themselves. In case of frustration, anxiety, stress or when they feel truly lonely they like to resort to larger amounts of chocolate, ice cream, noodles or other typical “soul food” candidates – only to be afterwards upset about the additional pounds on their ribs because after all, basically their appearance and effect on others is very important to them. In order to avoid this conundrum and to make them immediately available replacing the chocolate, it is especially important for them to adopt a few other stress management strategies.
How your type should exerciseSpontaneous Idealists are true energy bundles on two legs and must be involved in a few sporting activities where they can test their limits and work off their excess energy – this obviously works best for them in the company of others. Here fun- and team sports are made for them. This includes all ball sports played by a team (basketball, volleyball, handball, soccer, baseball, La Crosse etc.) but also sports related activities such as cheer leading, twirling plus golfing, skiing, snowboarding and obviously dancing in all its forms. Whenever a new trend sport shows up, one can be pretty sure that the Spontaneous Idealist is going to at least give it a try. Like many extroverted types the Spontaneous Idealist is also frequently the driving force and the heart of sports- and other organizations and clubs accounting for all sorts of action and fun. Alternatively his team mates will probably soon find out not to use Spontaneous Idealists as long-distance runners - they can’t be beat at short distances but things get tough when it becomes necessary to man-up in order to make it to the distant finish line. This type is world class when it comes to starting something – however and not only when it comes to sports, hanging tough and perseverance are just not his strengths . . .
How your type should care about nutritionSpontaneous Idealists love to do several things at once and have a comparatively short attention span for what they are doing. Then simultaneously watching TV, being on the phone, drinking a glass of wine or snacking on chips immediately suggests itself. Or else reducing lunch to a roll that is quickly consumed while surfing on the computer. Here Spontaneous Idealists would do well with a little more discipline. A good start for them: Please don’t eat where you are busy with something else (as for instance working, sleeping, watching TV, working with the computer)! This really helps with concentrating on enjoying the food and is also beneficial for the health. A nice little breakfast nook in the kitchen would be a good idea or maybe there is even a real, although unfortunately all to often orphaned dining table somewhere. Spontaneous Idealists should occasionally just observe themselves where life’s other pleasure situations are concerned: While they are in the process of getting a massage or sitting in the sauna they are all too often already mentally busy with the next appointment or they ponder about some problem. Stressful!! This personality type would really profit from consciously trying to occasionally focus his/her attention on the here and now!
