Artisan Themes

The four personality types associated with this theme are Analyzer Operator, Composer Producer, Promoter Executor and Motivator Presentor.

Analyzer Operator: These individuals are known for the ability to actively solve problems, which causes others to often seek out their help in many of life’s chaotic situations. By observing how things work, the Analyzer Operator is able to systematically breakdown the details of most situations in order find the best solution available. Also, they have an uncanny ability or talent for knowing which tools will work best for a particular situation. Based on these abilities, they can easily be open minded and understanding of people’s differences and idiosyncrasies. The tendency to be an independent thinker is coupled with the need to be isolated and self-imposed when they are over worked. Also, they rely heavily on their hunches and intuition when making decisions, which causes others to question, at times, how they reach their conclusions. Even though it is difficult for them to always explain why they know something, the people that they interact with don’t doubt the Analyzer Operator’s understanding of a situation. They are always willing to share the discoveries that they come up with, but can become unsettled by experiences that are emotionally powerful.

Composer Producer: These individuals are able to take full advantage of the opportunities that they are presented with and consider such opportunities as dreams fulfilled. Another fine characteristic that they possess is conviction in what they choose to do and to never sell out on what they believe in. They also are able to see what is important for others, and can help them achieve their goals beyond what was originally sought. Others often underestimate the amount of work it took to get them what they wanted because of the Composer Producer’s talent for creative problem solving. Their thinking patterns can be described as composing, random scanning of available resources, and cohesiveness of ideas, words and actions. They get so lost in what they are doing that they can often lose track of time. Building relationships and attracting loyal friends and colleagues, as well as being free to express their own personal style is important to them.

Promoter Executor: These individuals are able to take charge of most situations and have an uncanny ability to make things happen. They are willing to push to the limits to get the results they seek, which is what drives them forward. Keeping their options open and having the freedom to act is essential for their sense of well-being. Tactical prioritizing is something they are skilled at doing. Yet, if things begin to go off course, the can easily change their approach or even abandon an entire project. Their thinking patterns are most reflected in the ability to scan their environment for relevant information, opportunities, and resources. Following this, they then quickly adjust their behavior and act accordingly with split-second timing. Working both sides of an issue, finding bargaining points and determining the bottom-line is achieved by their strong negotiating skills. Winning people over is easy as they have a strong sense of humor, a high enthusiasm and a directness.

Motivator Presenter: These individuals love to engage in stimulating action to begin projects and complete them, often engaging in several projects at once. They trust their intuition and act accordingly with a great deal of flare. Engaging others is easy for them, as is helping them see and trust the existence of all available possibilities. Rather than seeing obstacles and roadblocks, they see challenges and opportunities. They appreciate the value of freedom for themselves and others, and will meet any attempt to take it away with strong resistance. Taking risks comes very naturally for them, viewing them as natural parts of life. Their thinking patterns are characterized by being able to take in a variety of information at once, and to manage simultaneous perceptions while always asking, “what is the primary goal?” Processing information happens very quickly for them, which makes it difficult for them to allow others to process at a slower pace.
