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.

Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
