Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with 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.

General
Creative types like work that involves using personal imagination to create something new - a new design, colour scheme, piece of art or music etc. These types enjoy beauty, and are interested in variety - liking unusual sights, sounds, places, people and ideas.

Interests
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Activities
Creative activities may include exploring colour, shape, composition, and rhythm (e.g. fine art, music), exploring the space we live in and the materials we use (e.g. Architect), using one's sensitivity to people's needs in order to design and decorate places or people (e.g. interior design, Beautician, Fashion designer), or refining physical skills (e.g. Singer, Sculptor, Potter, Mime artist).
