Independent Thinker

As Independent Thinker, you have earned a black belt in self-determination. You have a keen awareness of your own strengths. People of your type are often very successful in their careers because they combine creativity, competence and ambition. With your sharp mind, you question existing structures, analyze complex issues and are constantly on the lookout for innovative solutions - always driven by the question „Why?" This makes you a visionary who easily pushes boundaries and makes the seemingly impossible possible.

Strategy, logic and system are your world. Inquisitive by nature, you are eager to expand and complete your knowledge in any field that interests you. Abstract thinking comes easily to you, which is why scientists and computer specialists are often found among your type.

Your independence is a great strength, but it also means that you sometimes have difficulty with social interaction. You value your freedom above all else and are very easily irritated if you feel restricted in this respect. You also often find it too stressful to have to explain your thoughts to other people. Constant direct contact with others, the need to adapt to their sensitivities and emotions - all these are annoying frictions that prevent you from devoting yourself fully to what really interests you. As a result, you probably feel most comfortable when you can organize your life and work as autonomously as possible. Self-employment may prove to be a good alternative for you. If employed, you should quickly seek a management position in your company that will give you the necessary freedom.

Abstract theories with no connection to reality are of little interest to you - this is something that sets you apart from other Thinker types. Unlike them, you really enjoy developing and implementing your own concepts and ideas, and you enjoy the results. Therefore, you should seek a work environment that allows you to see your ideas through to completion.

In love, you look for a partner who not only stimulates your intellectual curiosity, but also understands and respects your desire for independence. The easiest way to impress you is with competence, knowledge and a willingness to learn, because these are the things that really matter to you in life. You build trust and closeness with other people very slowly and carefully. It takes patience and perseverance to win you over, for you are reluctant and hesitant to show your feelings - you prefer to let your actions speak louder than your words. However, once you have chosen someone, you are a very loyal and reliable partner.

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.
