Determined Realist (DR)
(Just visiting? Take the free test and determine your personality type!)
The determined realist likes to bear responsibility and welcomes challenges. He is a stable, reliable person. External contacts are very important to him; he mixes well and is very active. He is an excellent organiser and is very happy when things are done correctly and punctually; he can quickly react impatiently if others are not as conscientious, orderly and dutiful as he is. He prefers structured work which produces visible results quickly to abstract, long-drawn-out processes. He has no problem with routine as long as it serves efficiency. However, he very much dislikes unexpected and unpredictable occurrences which mess up his careful plans. Once he has committed himself to a cause he does this with dedication and is willing to make considerable sacrifices for it.
The determined realist does not avoid conflicts and criticism but faces up to them and looks for solutions. As he has a keen eye for the errors and shortcomings of others and is often quick at expressing criticism, he sometimes rubs people up the wrong way especially when he loses his temper and jumps to conclusions. Due to his marked sense of justice he is quickly willing to correct himself and never takes offence if someone speaks to him frankly. You do not have to seek hidden motives with him; you always know where you are. The determined realist is often found in executive positions as he combines commitment, competence and the ability to assert himself. In his spare time, he often also accepts responsibility in clubs and other institutions.
Traditions rate highly with the determined realist. He attends every family event and never forgets a birthday or wedding anniversary. Family and friends are very important to him. With his open, communicative manner, he finds it easy to get to know people and has a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He is never superficial, but a reliable and loyal friend who is always there when he is needed. The determined realist takes his relationships very seriously - he dreams of finding a partner for life. In a love relationship, he seeks above all stability and loyalty and here, too, he is willing to invest a lot in a harmonious togetherness. He masters crises or difficult phases with composure; he would never think of breaking a promise given. As a partner, one can always rely on his support.
