Realistic people are doers who like to work with or build things. Rather than take ages thinking about a problem, they prefer to learn through experience and jump right into work. They like to work with things they can see and touch like machinery, tools, or animals.
They don’t focus on abstract theory and instead prefer real solutions where they can see the immediate fruits of their labor. They desire mastery over their craft through repetition and trial and error. They view themselves as practical, mechanical, and realistic.
