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:

  • Carpenter
  • Diesel Mechanic
  • Electrician
  • Farmer
  • Fire Fighter
  • Flight Engineer
  • Forester
  • Locksmith
  • Locomotive Engineer
  • Pilot
  • 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.
