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.

Parenting Exam Students

How do we as parents keep calm and ensure the home environment is good for our students?

Handling exam stress can be an issue for the parent of any Junior Cert or Leaving Cert student as the pressure builds in the lead-up to exam time.

A small amount of stress can be helpful to motivate a student to get started, but if it gets out of hand, stress can inhibit the ability to focus and perform well.

A new video from Schooldays.ie in association with Sheila O'Malley of PracticalParenting.ie provides tips on dealing with your students' exam stress.

Watch the 'Parenting exam Students' video from schooldays.ie here.

More advice and tips for parents to help keep the stress levels under control is available here.
