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.

When people ask me what is it about theology that I like so much I just end up smiling and saying “everything”, from the vast curriculum to the on-campus experience, There isn’t one thing about studying Theology in St Patrick’s that I dislike. So yes to sound clichéd, coming to St Patrick’s College Maynooth was the best decision I have ever made.
