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.

  Hint: Civil and Public Service Jobs
I saw the notice in the paper in early '07 and applied online via publicjobs.ie. I was called for psychometric testing which I managed to pass, and this was followed by the interview itself. This was both a regular panel-type and also a group interview.

After passing this I was sent for a medical and I began training shortly afterwards. This consisted of 9 weeks in the Training Centre in Portlaoise after which I was assigned to Cloverhill Prison.
