Spontaneous Idealists like me are creative, lively and open-minded people. I am humorous and dispose of a contagious zest for life. My enthusiasm and sparkling energy inspires others and sweeps them along. I enjoy being together with other people and often have an uncanny intuition for their motivations and potential. Spontaneous Idealists are masters of communication and very amusing and gifted entertainers. Fun and variety are guaranteed when I am around. However, I may be sometimes somewhat too impulsive in dealing with others and can hurt people without really meaning to do so, due to my direct and sometimes critical nature.
I am a keen and alert observer; I miss nothing which is going on around me. In extreme cases, I tend to be oversensitive and exaggeratedly alert and I am inwardly always ready to jump. Life for me is an exciting drama full of emotionality. However, I quickly become bored when things repeat themselves and too much detailed work and care is required. My creativity, imaginativeness and originality become most noticeable when developing new projects and ideas - I then leave the meticulous implementation of the whole to others. On the whole, Spontaneous Idealists attach great value to their inner and outward independence and do not like accepting a subordinate role. I therefore have problems with hierarchies and authorities.
As a Spontaneous Idealist I am one of the extroverted personality types. I enjoy working in a colorfully diverse group of people who interest and inspire you. Working in a “secluded room” is not my thing. My sense for the motivation of others is almost eerie. I constantly observe that which happens around me and have no problems noticing all sorts of things simultaneously or communicating with several people at the same time.
My enthusiasm is contagious to others and that is why my colleagues and friends all appreciate me as an important member of their team. My articulateness and sensitive ear for nuances in conversations with others obviously play a role. For me, this team-oriented environment is very important because I need to receive positive feedback and recognition like other people need air to breathe. It would be practically impossible for me to contribute everything I need to maintain my high ideals, by myself.
Variety, challenges and fun are important ingredients in my area of responsibility. I appreciate receiving new stimulation, meeting new people, and continuously collecting unique experiences. However, too much routine, too much detail work and the necessity to stick with one project for a very long time is not my thing. My strength are creative problem solutions, discovering new ways and opportunities, the conceptualization of new ideas on one hand, but not so much their concrete implementation on the other. Ideally, I have a staff of capable colleagues that takes over my concepts and runs with them.
