Realistic Type Work Environment
Persons having a Realistic personality type "dominate" this environment. There are more of them than there are people of other personality types. For example, at a construction site there will be more persons having a "Realistic" personality than there will be people who have a Social or Artistic type.
"Realistic" people create a "Realistic" environment. For example, they particularly value people who are practical and mechanical -- who are good at working with tools, mechanical or electrical drawings, machines, or animals.
Examples of occupations that have a Realistic environment are:
- Diesel Mechanic
- Fire Fighter
- Flight Engineer
- Locomotive Engineer
- Police Officer
- Truck Driver
The two work environments that are closest to the Realistic type are Conventional and Investigative. The farthest away is the Social type.
