Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Cabra Community College, formally Colaiste Eanna was first opened in 1945 by the City of Dublin VEC as a vocational school for the boys and girls of Cabra. It was the first ever co-educational school of its kind in Ireland. Cabra Community College is a dynamic vibrant school situated in the heart of the community in Cabra, Co Dublin. It is 10 minutes from the centre of Dublin with easy access to the M50 and M1.

The school has gone through many transitions since it opened in 1945. The school has greatly expanded its range of courses in the intervening period. It now provides education for second level students and adult students. We recognise the need for ongoing growth and development in order to meet the changing needs of our students. In this era of lifelong learning the college is committed to responding to the needs of the students and the community.
