I am an Equalizer and an Advisor, or so I'm told by a "StandOut report" included in the book I'm currently reading called StandOut2.0.
The description from the report reads,
"You combine doing what is best with doing what is right.You put principle into practice. You have that rare ability to combine doing what is best with doing what is right -- and you will take a stand for both. Because you are both consistent and practical, you excel at designing policy to guide actions. People respect you and seek you out for your good judgment. Your need for clinical precision and exact calculation proves invaluable, whether you are serving clients or making high-stakes decisions for the team."
I have to say this is rather true, but it is only when I dig into the details that it begins to really hit home.
An Advisor always needs people to advise. Analysis is fine, and can be fun, but the day you discover that you have no direct audience for your conclusions--sitting by yourself, analyzing for the sake of it--will be a very bad day for you. You are the kind of person who respects experts. Why? Because experts have studied their subjects deeply and can pinpoint which details make the difference, which distinctions really matter. You are wired to appreciate this kind of inquiry. Your strength is your common sense. Warning: Don't come across as a know-it-all.
I hope I can embrace these strengths and get myself out of this rut.
