  Paul Shortt
My current role requires a lot of self-motivation as it is largely autonomous, while colleagues are always on hand to give advice and counsel, the decisions as to how to progress cases or deal with problems are ultimately my call.

The job requires someone who is able to work under pressure, is comfortable with public speaking, is confident, assertive and decisive. These are all skills that can be learned with experience, involvement with organisations in school or university that involve managing workload, organising information and debating would all be useful in developing such skill sets.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
