YOU ARE A SEER
Your Passion: To Envision (Imagine, Recognize, Achieve, Attain)

For you, seeing the future and where you are heading gets you, and everyone else around you, fired up and excited about possibilities. Curious, inventive and imaginative, all you need is an idea to get you raring to go. With your sights on the future, you get excited when you’re ahead of everyone else and you’ll work hard to make sure you stay in front. It’s easy for you to see who you want to be or what you want to do. Your ambition, combined with a strong work ethic, guarantees that you will make your vision a reality.

When you don’t direct your passion, you can appear arrogant to others who don’t “see what you see.” They may even consider you a bit flaky. It’s not uncommon for people with your passion to take center stage and wow others with big ideas. To others, your passion can be frightening since most people prefer to hold on to what they have instead of dreaming the big dreams that come so naturally to you. Because you like to win or be the “best of the best”, you can easily attract the envy of others and will be surprised when people undermine or try to dismiss your passion. You have a tendency to disconnect from your passion or downplay it to avoid unpleasant reactions from others when they devalue, dismiss or ridicule your dreams.

 

WORK
Whatever place you start, you have the destination in mind. In order for you to use your passion at work, you need to be able to “see” where you’re going. You do well in your own business as an entrepreneur: where you can have a vision for what you want to create and then set about to achieve it. A career where you make plans, predictions or systems is energizing for you. Goal-driven jobs where you set targets -- like sales, consulting, or marketing -- will ignite your passion. Work where you may have the opportunity to make cutting-edge discoveries in your field, or produce innovative products or solutions.

Some jobs where you can use your passion for envisioning:

  • Advertising – Creative Director/ Account Executive
  • Attorney – Administrative/ Litigator/ Intellectual Property/ Environmental
  • Broadcaster/Media Personality
  • Consultant – Marketing/ Organizational/ Compensation/ Corporate Training
  • Design Engineer

LIFE
As a Seer, you are always on the lookout for new things to ignite your passion. You can get fired up about a lot of things and do best to when you have a number of projects going. Reorganizing your home, gardening, solving a jigsaw puzzle, knitting or beading are all interesting to you. You need projects where you can envision the end product. Don’t beat yourself up for not finishing things because the passion for you comes with seeing what something will be and trying to make it. If you can’t get there fast enough, you will likely start something different. It’s a given. Courses in psychology, astrology or other subjects that fuel your passion for seeing why people do what they do are also compelling.
