What An Online Therapist Said About Me
The type of information you are most attracted to:
You emphasize past experience, realism, common sense, and practical issues. You have a matter of fact style and are direct rather than indirect. You prefer applicable, concrete knowledge over abstract, theoretical knowledge. When someone explains something to you, you often ask them to provide an example.
You are most comfortable dealing with the here and now, the real world. When someone asks, 'But what if x happens or y happens?', you respond by saying, 'It hasn't yet happened. Let's deal with it if and when it does, instead of wasting time now speculating about it.' You trust information gathered by your own five senses over any other information source. Avoiding speculation and exaggeration is important to you.
You would rather say 'I get things done' than 'I create ideas and possibilities.' You don't like it when people jump around in their thoughts or when ideas don't logically flow.
Caution area: you may sometimes overlook long-range planning by being too focused on the moment.How you prefer to make decisions:
You make decisions using your heart rather than your mind. Your conclusions change according to what you are feeling at the time.
You pay attention to the human element. You would rather a person be illogical yet considerate than be accurate and cold-hearted. You focus on how a decision will affect others.
When coming to conclusions, you believe that there are often no black or white solutions. Each situation has different circumstances.
You often become 'caught up' by the moment, carried away by a feeling or impression. For example, when you go shopping, you can quickly become inspired to buy an item that you don't need, simply because it feels like something you need at the time.The environment you do best in:
You do not mind leaving questions unanswered. You like surprises - gifts, notes, unexpected phone calls. While you appreciate having some structure in your environment, you also enjoy the excitement and mystery of the unplanned.
You enjoy starting things more than finishing things, and prefer to have freedom from obligations. You are spontaneous and appreciate the presence of alternative plans.
