Resolvers

The four aspects that make up this personality type are:

Summary of Resolvers

  • Good at getting to the heart of a problem and quickly finding a solution
  • Make rational decisions using the facts available
  • Think of themselves as understanding, stable and easy-going
  • May focus on short-term results and lose sight of the big picture

More about Resolvers

Resolvers are independent people who quietly learn how things work by analysing large amounts of information. Should a problem arise, they solve it with as little fuss as possible. Resolvers are only interested in abstract ideas, if they can be used to solve a problem quickly.

 
Resolvers have changed jobs most frequently since leaving full-time education, according to a UK survey.

Resolvers like to take risks: Many of them seek jobs and pastimes that put them in harm's way and guarantee an adrenaline rush.

Resolvers are often tolerant of behaviour different to their own as long as their values aren't compromised. They sometimes give the impression that they agree with other peoples' viewpoints because they don't actively disagree.

In situations where they can't use their talents or are unappreciated, Resolvers may become cynical, negatively critical or put off decisions. Under extreme stress, Resolvers could be prone to inappropriate, tearful outbursts.

Resolvers are quiet and sometimes it is difficult to get to know them; however, they often talk freely about subjects they understand well.

Resolver Careers

Resolvers are often drawn to hands-on jobs that require an analytical mind and careful organisation of large amounts of data.
