PRACTICAL Conventional • Pragmatic You use existing information and take conventional approaches Meaning Expand You like well-known, established ideas. You focus on what you know already exists. You’re interested in what things do, more than design or style. You notice the outer world, rather than inner thoughts and feelings. You stick with familiar activities that you've done before. Strengths Expand Sticking with clear-cut answers means you can apply them right away. Thinking about the real world helps you deal with the task at hand. Noticing functionality helps you choose what’s useful. Focusing on actions, rather than going inside, helps you get on with things. Doing the same activities helps you get consistent results. Challenges Expand Thinking the answer is obvious means overlooking deeper explanations. Dealing only with the task at hand can make it difficult to be original. Choosing just on functionality sacrifices appreciation of beauty. Ignoring feelings can prevent understanding of yourself and others. Avoiding new things may make it difficult to adapt to change.
