More about this type of personality

Thinkers excel at activities that involve observation, thought, investigation, discovery, and exploration. They are enthusiastic readers who want to engage in performing experiments, conducting research, and solving problems. In general, they perform very well on the mathematics portion of quizzes.

Thinkers frequently are intellectual, analytical, and scholarly. These persons typically like scientific or mathematical activities and enjoy research work. Investigative personality types like to observe the world from a certain distance, and often are living in their minds.

Rather than working hands-on, they love reading, studying, and using books and some other data. Usually, they are very independent, curious, and unconventional thinkers who have well-developed insights.

THINKERS LIKE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS

Investigative personality types like to use their logical skills to solve abstract, highly complex problems, and they typically concentrate on different ideas when they are interacting with other people. They typically are always busy collecting information and analyzing situations before they will make any decision and is they like the outdoors, it’s usually not because they take any pleasure in physical work, but because they are curious by nature.

THINKERS ARE INTELLIGENT BUT NO LEADERS
Investigative personality types usually are pretty intelligent, but also introverted. For that reason, they often lack persuasive skills and leadership capacities. They are using the information and their minds to solve issues or to achieve things, instead of associating with things or people. Investigative personality types typically don’t like and will avoid activities that are commercial, enterprising, or mundane.
