By Donna Dunning

Examine and Evaluate

Analyzers are at their best when they can use their natural work preferences. By focusing on your preferences, you can find work that is personally satisfying. The following list describes typical characteristics and preferences of Analyzers. Identify the items that are true for you so you can seek work that suits who you are.

As an Analyzer, I am at my best when I can:

  • Approach situations using logic and objectivity
  • Work in environments where others are competent
  • Critique and see flaws
  • Collect information in an open and flexible way
  • Work on new and unusual problems and situations
  • Do a variety of tasks
  • Come up with options or solutions to problems
  • Let others direct, implement, and follow through
  • Be privy to the logic and rationale behind decisions and actions
  • Have control over my work
  • Set my own pace
  • Have time and space to think a problem through
  • Have time to observe and reflect
  • Avoid overly structured, routine, or rigid work tasks or environments
  • Work independently
  • Uphold the high standards I set for myself
  • Not have to sell or promote myself
  • Avoid office politics
  • Step back from interpersonal interactions at work
  • Act spontaneously
