Entertainment is important to you. Whether it's the on-screen action of a live game or a classic piece of theater, you love the thrill of a great performance. Something of a traditionalist in your attitude to life, the perfectionist in you is constantly seeking the ideal blend of formality and pleasure-seeking. There's a strong, thoughtful element to your character that means you love anything with a sense of intrigue to really get your heart racing.
You're not one to let a challenge pass you by and your thirst to close the next big deal is what makes you tick. You're straightforward, self-disciplined, thoughtful and hard working. Once established in a post, you are very difficult to unseat. You're not just an idea-oriented individual, but also an achiever. Rarely do you get ahead through advantage or nepotism, as you are more likely to come out of nowhere with unusual talents and take the field by storm. When called upon in a time of crisis, you often come up with highly creative and practical solutions, winning the appreciation of your superiors. Above all, you're very realistic about the positions you hold and shrewd enough to guarantee survival in the job market.
