Type 3 - The Performer
If this is your dominant type - remembering that no type is better or worse, just different - you are usually motivated by the need to be productive and to achieve success; to avoid failure. You like to be perceived as being worthwhile and desirable, and are usually very sociable. You can be driven at times to attain excellent results wherever possible, and your enthusiasm and ability to communicate makes you good networking. You are practical and put ideas into action. Outwardly assertive, you like to be closely involved with others when working together. You can also be an industrious workaholic with crowd-pleasing style that can change from group to group. When you are stressed you usually get lethargic and discontented, which can spiral into inertia. When you are content and feel secure, you are more discerning and reflective, with a greater desire to gain a fuller insight into people and situations. You become more of a human ‘being’, than a human ‘doing’.
