Dynamic Thinker: Career
Some of history’s most famous military leaders were not just coincidentally Dynamic Thinkers. Leadership is simply in your blood. You are self confident, energetic and determined to reach your goals and if it is up to you, there won’t be any shilly-shallying. You are equally important in your work efficiency and effectiveness. Strategic planning, long term considerations, creative problem solving, and absolutely exact case analyses are some of your strongest points. The quotation “I came, I saw and was victorious” (Caesar) could also be written on your flag. You comprehend even very complex situations quickly and completely, and immediately issue comprehensive instructions on how they must be dealt with.
The extroverted part of your personality provides you with excellent communication capabilities plus a certain charisma, making it easy for you to engage other people in your objectives. With all that, your visions are not limited to the existing and the contemporary, but frequently extend far into the future. For your professional satisfaction you need these objectives like you need air for breathing. You especially enjoy intellectual challenges and don’t care for victories too easily achieved.
Since you belong to the extroverted Thinker types, working in a solitary environment is not for you. In order to be happy, you need to be in the company of people, with new excitement and tasks plus a little action. Although this frequently provides for a great output the human (all too human) needs of your colleagues could easily end up being ignored. As an intuitive Thinker type, you are always focused on the objective of your task and the welfare of the company, respectively. You quickly have the number of those who are not disciplined and performance-oriented and prepared to work equally hard on the task.
As the boss, you would probably show that particular person the door; as a colleague, you make him sense your contempt for his “weak” demeanor. Especially the absence of competency or a challenged intellectual aptitude quickly causes you to get impatient. Frequently, this is the case when people with your type have achieved leadership positions without being aware of it. One of your favorite expressions is probably: “Leave it alone, I’ll take care of that.” Dynamic Thinkers simply shove everybody aside who in their opinion don’t perform and to their surprise find themselves heading the organization.
Dynamic Thinkers are confident and independent persons. They radiate enthusiasm and energy. Dynamic Thinkers pursue their objectives actively and energetically. They love nothing better than new challenges. This type is the born leader, competent, energetic and responsible. They have a sharp eye for errors and can criticise without mercy if they see the success of a project endangered. They are completely unconcerned as to whether they alienate anyone in the process. But they are always open to objective arguments; they love discussions, they are very gifted rhetorically and they are good at convincing and enthusing others.
As they are very sociable, Dynamic Thinkers like to have a lot of friends around them, preferably those with whom they can share their interests and discuss all sorts of subjects. They are very direct but never in an underhand or scheming manner. If you can bear being spoken to frankly, you have in them a loyal and unwavering advisor as friend. Everything new and unknown stimulates Dynamic Thinkers and awakens their curiosity. However, rules, routine and traditional things arouse their resistance. If something does not go the way they want it to, they can react rather pigheadedly and obstinately.

Dynamic Thinkers expect a great deal of themselves and of others. Whoever does not fit in with their scheme of things does not have it easy. They sometimes appear to be rather severe due to their frankness. Partners and family also find it difficult to satisfy Dynamic Thinkers. They know exactly what they want and compromising is inconceivable to them. Whoever has an Dynamic Thinker as partner should have a strong personality and have a great deal of independence and sufficient self-confidence in order to give this dominating type some opposition. Normally, for Dynamic Thinkers, a partnership only takes second place after their profession. But they like to have someone at their side who is a match for them intellectually, with whom they can pursue mutual objectives and have interesting discussions all night long; preferably factual discussions - sentimentalism and romance are not their thing.

Dynamic Thinker: Love
There is no question: You belong in every respect to the born leaders among the personality types. Other types may doubt, be insecure about what they expect from life and their partnership - you don’t. You know what you want and take care to get it. This may have a intimidating effect on others and occasionally it will even be described as arrogant. Therefore, not everybody is going to chance approaching you as a potential partner, and you don’t find anything wrong with that. You prefer to be the conqueror rather than be conquered.
Besides, your demands of a potential partner are so high that the majority of the people around you would not qualify, anyway. You don’t like to compromise and, where love is concerned, you are not the least bit prepared to negotiate. You prefer to patiently search for someone who really fascinates you. But once you‘ve found him/her, you can fall in love head over heels and very passionately - a rare quality in a Thinker. However, even in this case, after the first rush is gone, your cool strategy subjects the relationship to a comprehensive examination, and quickly and decisively terminates it rather than put up with second best. It is not for nothing that literature likes to describe your type in military terms such as “general” or “field marshall”!
As a very self-sufficient person who has no problem being alone, and who appreciates his/her space, you really don’t care if your search for the perfect partner takes a little longer. Being so autonomous, you should look for someone who comes from a similar mold and who can deal with the fact that you are going to defend your independence like a lion even in a partnership. Not all types can handle the fact, that they may be an appreciated part of your life but never are going to be its only center. You have too many of your own interests, including your career.
