You do well in most easygoing environments; chaos gets you all stressed out. You’re also very diplomatic and can be quite chivalrous, even to the point of being heroic. You have tact and diplomacy, and a sense for justice. You don’t like to be constricted in a cubicle job and enjoy being in the spotlight sometimes.

Intuitive, resourceful, hardworking and determined, your general knowledge is off the charts. You’re also very dedicated to your work, with good insight and intuition.

You need to be able to do things your way or be in a situation where the rules are flexible.You’re happy when you are your own boss or aren’t tied down and can let your imagination roam.
