The HR role is one that continually evolves. I would say that if you are considering this role you need to be able to adapt and embrace change easily.

In my opinion HR plays a positive and influential role in any company and good business acumen, knowledge and understanding of your people, policies and legislation are important.

It is vital that you have the ability to get on well with others as the role can involve resolving disputes and encouraging good relations in the workplace. Communication is key in this role and having the ability to keep a balanced and fair view of situations is a necessity. A rewarding role that continually inspires you to want to achieve more on a professional and personal level.

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.
