Examine and Evaluate

Personality Types


Analyzers like to take time to analyze information and make logical decisions. When presented with a problem or a task, they immediately begin to logically think the situation through by collecting information, asking themselves questions and looking for the best course of action. They like to relate principles of science, technology or other areas of expertise to problem solving and they like to find ways to try their ideas and test their conclusions.

Two Types of Analyzers

Analyzers are energized by working within the internal world of reflection and analysis. They must balance this internal focus by taking in new information and acting in the world around them.
