Chapter 16. The Analytical Style

The Good Stuff: This style is, above all, logical. Analyticals are usually neat, organized, and precise, and they lean toward professions that require these qualities—engineering, science, accounting, and research. As excellent problem solvers, they contribute to their work teams with a thorough knowledge of the subject, an objective analysis of available information, and a practical game plan. They keep agreements and meet deadlines on time. They are dependable and patient. And did we mention logical?!

The Downside: With so many positive qualities, it is hard to imagine a downside to this style. But some would say that rightness can turn quickly to self-righteousness, and insistence on complete accuracy soon becomes tedious and boring. Stubbornness becomes an art form, and the push for perfection can make analyticals ever so picky about the smallest details. Their screen saver might read: “I’m right. I’m right. I’m right.”
