profile: The Individualist
I am self-reliant and individualistic. I am likely to treat team goals as personal goals. I have a high sense of personal accountability and set very high standards for others. I tolerate working under pressure and I am unlikely to be demoralized by rejection. My drive and individualism may reduce my effectiveness when working as a member of a team. When faced with opposition, I am likely to respond by becoming even more persistent, forceful and innovative.
- Ability to focus and not be side-tracked from my drive to achieve an objective.
- Responsiveness to change and ability to be inventive when faced with problems.
- Capacity to function without the support and encouragement of others.
