As a builder, you are practical, hard-working, independent, and have a keen eye for details. You are drawn to work that exists firmly in the physical world, and love to take a hands-on approach to getting things done. Being outdoors and taking on physical and mechanical challenges puts you right in your element.
As a leader, you take a conventional approach to your work and inspire those around you with your strong work ethic. You are very methodical and easily decode even detailed instructions, which is a blessing to those around you who may be intimidated by the particulars of a project. You take charge and ensure that tasks are completed correctly, and if issues arise, your teammates know that you will find a practical solution to them.
While you are very independent, you find yourself drawn to structured environments that give you a clear path to move forward in your projects, as you prefer to focus on results rather than ideas.
So, before you read the shadow side, I invite you to see this as an opportunity for growth. Feedback is often not your friend as it can feel like you are being forced to change aspects of yourself, but this is not so. Your intentions are pure, yet they can create discord in your collaboration.
You have a strong desire to do things the right way, and this results in your traditional approach to doing excellent work which is something to be proud of. However, when the builder is not serving you, this desire for conventional approaches can lead you to be critical of others who may do things differently than you do. It is important to remember that often there are different ways to accomplish tasks that can produce quality work. Others who may not be as practical in their work might bring other qualities to the table that can be stifled if they are not allowed to do things their own way.
You have a strong mind and prefer to focus on concrete thoughts and actions, and while this produces excellent results in your work, it can sometimes leave you frustrated by teammates who spend less time in the physical and more time thinking of the possible. Rather than growing frustrated, consider that these relationships can be mutually beneficial, with dreamers envisioning new possibilities and builders making them happen in the real world.
