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.

60 New Jobs with Technopath Clinical Diagnostics

Technopatch Clinical Diagnostics, a software company working within quality control for clinical labs, has announced it’s to create 60 jobs at its facility in Ballina, Co Tipperary.

Having last created a string of jobs back in 2012, Technopath Clinical Diagnostics will be looking to treble its manufacturing capacity at its Ballina plant with an investment of €5m from within the company.

With the jobs to be created over the next two years, Technopath says that this will bring its staff numbers to 180 at its facility, following 18 months of rapid growth.
