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.

Rob, Quantitative Analyst Services

Rob joined us here in EY in September 2014. Originally he started in FS Advisory Performance Improvement but moved to the Risk, and more specifically the Quantitative Analyst Services (QAS) team, in January this year. He moved because it aligns more with his background and interests and because it’s a challenging field with the big changes going on in banks at the moment due to regulatory changes. Also the teams are rapidly growing across EMEIA.
