And i came out as a Reflector…
*Reflectors like to stand back to ponder experiences and observe them from different perspectives. They collect data, both first hand and from others, and prefer to think about it thoroughly before coming to any conclusion. Because the thorough collection and analysis of data about experiences and events is what counts, they tend to postpone reaching definitive conclusions for as long as possible. Their philosophy is to be cautious. They are thoughtful people who like to consider all possible angles and implications before making a move. They enjoy observing other people in action. They listen to others and get the drift of the discussion before making their own points. They tend to adopt a low profile and have a slightly distant, tolerant, unruffled air about them. When they act it is part of a wide picture which includes the past as well as the present and others' observations as well as their own. *
Hmmm, pretty accurate. I am quite a perfectionist (does anyone else get really annoyed when people don't line drink mats perfectly up to the corners of the table? Nope, just me then). It's true that i prefer everything pre-planned because surprises get me flustered. But then again, i wouldn't say that i keep a low profile in discussions as it's a key importance for everyone to verbally express their ideas and SHARE. I've always thought that if people studying completely different courses put their heads together they could come up with much more sophisticated answers to problems that looked at a huge range of intellectual angles rather than one narrow-minded way. Therefore, all Chemists should start mingling with Historians for instance and talk through major issues… just a thought.
Anyway, everyone should have a go at the Qaire.
