To understand the present, individuals with CONTEXT enjoy researching the past and it’s history. They have the ability to connect where they have come from to where they are going.
How do they think?
Thinking about the past helps these individuals grasp the present. They enjoy a retrospective viewpoint because they believe this is where the answers lie. By looking back this helps them discern the future direction.
How do they feel?
History provides them a feeling of confidence when making decisions for the present. At times they might feel disoriented by the inability to discern patterns in prior events.
How do they behave?
Believing the present is unstable, these individuals look back to help them make more educated decisions. Looking for patterns and a blueprint will allow them to understand which direction to move forward with in the present.
Tips for living your best life as someone with CONTEXT:
• When issues at work arise, ask your colleagues to identify the actions and other factors that led to it.
• Look for a mentor who has a long history in your community and organization.
• Read historical, non-fiction, or biographies as this will help you understand the present.
