SOCIAL Hello there! So you are the Social personality? You tend to like socializing with others, are usually responsible, humanistic, and concerned with the welfare of others. Considering you are sensitive to other people’s moods and feelings, you enjoy company and make friends easily. Your empathy skills and the ability to identify emotional signals allows you to recognize when an individual may be in crisis. You usually express yourself well, get along with others, like attention, and seek situations allowing them to be at or near the center of a group. When faced with a situation, you prefer to solve problems by discussions with others or by arranging or rearranging relationships. Having little interest in situations requiring physical exertion or working with machinery, you would sometimes describe yourself as cheerful, popular, achieving, and a good leader.
Social careers often focus on warm glow that comes from helping other people. People in social jobs are called upon daily to work closely with other people and help them solve their problems. They frequently have an opportunity to see the results of how their actions helped others. They usually have coworkers who are like themselves, both warm and supportive of each other. They make each other feel wanted, have great respect for each other’s abilities, and have many opportunities for close interpersonal relationships within the career field.
