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: Failte Ireland
I always want to learn more. I am still very young, and want to progress in the workplace as the years go on. I would like to continue my studies next year and do a bit of part time study.  With the courses I have done I can now progress to an add-on year on the honours Degree programme and then progress to Masters level.  I'm keeping my options open at the moment.
