What Color Is Your Career?|
First, get a handle on your personality, advises Shoya Zichy, a New York career coach and author of "Career Match: Connecting Who You Are With What You'll Love To Do."
"The personality is pretty stable throughout life -- your interests and values change, but your personality holds stable," says Zichy, who was in private banking for 15 years. "Understanding what drives you, what gets you excited, is really key."
In her book, Zichy offers a test based on the Myers-Briggs analysis, which teases out the ways you think and make decisions, and the working environment you prefer. Zichy says most people fall into one of four "color" categories: reds, who are competitive, adventure-oriented, good at improvising and managing crises; greens, creative, abstract thinkers who are empathetic and diplomatic; golds, goal-oriented, well-organized people who like procedure and structure; and blues, who enjoy theory, complexity, learning, and challenging the status quo.
Most people are dominant in one color with smatterings of another. Spitzer? "I think he's a blue with a backup red," Zichy surmises. "There's a fairly heady and theoretical piece to him and at the same time overly aggressive risk-taking. He would be comfortable anyplace where there's a lot of variety, where they appreciate his drive and innovative style -- but not someplace where he has to play by the rules closely."
多数人都有一种主色调；而其和少许其它色调。 Spitzer呢？ Zichy推测：“我想他是以蓝色为主以红色为辅；他有很任性、空谈的一面--同时过于冒险。 在多样性的任何地方他都能如鱼得水；那里人们会欣赏他的推动和有创新的风格--而不是在需要密切遵照规定的地方“
