Choosing the right career can be a difficult choice, and without a clear aim it is difficult to steer our lives.

If you consider yourself a doer, you are the sole of the job. The execution of the work is at your hands, you can focus and work under intense pressure to effectively fulfill the job.

The leader, is the motivator. He guides people towards the aim. He inspires people with his visionary ideas. If you are the leader, you are responsible for the work people do. Your check in on people to ensure smooth work function. You are on the top of the hierarchy of the work order.

The learners are researchers and strategic thinkers. If you are one of the same, you are a meticulous man. You love learning and fixing things in the most perfect way however you in the pursuit of completing your work precisely you might not be able to complete a work in a short time length.
