Personality Type 3: The Go Getter

You want to be competent, productive, accomplished and dynatype3mic.

More importantly, you want to be good at what you do and to look good doing it. You see yourself as ambitious, competitive and industrious. You would like others to see you as a winner with all the trappings of success. Your idealized image is that you are triumphant and victorious.

You are goal oriented – someone who lives by the motto “Why do when you can overdo!” To say that you are self-confident, ambitious and motivated may be an understatement. You take great pleasure in crossing tasks off your ‘to do’ lists after quickly finishing them.

Concerned about having prestige and status, you quickly adapt to whatever role is expected of you. Seeking success through appearances, you are likely to place continuous pressure on yourself to maintain an enviable image. You do this by controlling your emotions, being efficient and maintaining a focused single-minded attitude. A natural born performer, you try to do your best and to be an ‘all star’ at what ever you attempt.

A true taskmaster, your virtue is your veracity and sense of industry. Your efficiency makes you an overachiever who can accomplish a great deal. Often you are the model of success, and you have a natural ability to motivate and charm others.

Your Mantra

You are a human being, not a human doing, and you are loved for yourself and not for your accomplishments. Remember that when you feel efficient and robotic, you have lost touch with your heart.
