I believe I can make the best decisions by weighing what people care about and the points-of-view of persons involved in a situation. I am concerned with what is the best for the people involved & like to do whatever will maintain harmony. In my relationships, I appear caring, warm, and tactful. I have a people or communications orientation. I am concerned with harmony and nervous when it is missing. I look for what is important to others and express concern for others. I make decisions with my heart and want to be compassionate. I believe being tactful is more important than telling the "cold" truth. Sometimes I miss seeing or communicating the "hard truth" of situations. I am sometimes experienced by others as too idealistic, mushy, or indirect.

When I make a decision, I like to find the basic truth or principle to be applied, regardless of the specific situation involved. I like to analyze pros and cons, and then be consistent and logical in deciding. I try to be impersonal, so I won't let my personal wishes--or other people's wishes--influence me. I enjoy technical and scientific fields where logic is important. I notice inconsistencies. I look for logical explanations or solutions to most everything. I make decisions with my head and want to be fair. I believe telling the truth is more important than being tactful. Sometimes I miss or don't value the "people" part of a situation. I can be seen by others as too task-oriented, uncaring, or indifferent.
