Social Ascendants are ambitious, assertive, and goal-oriented people. They're focused on climbing the ladder of success, whether it's in their personal or professional lives. Whatever the setting, these people know how to use their skills to get ahead and aren't afraid to put in an effort to get to the top.
They're concerned with their public image and are always eager to gain a higher social status. While they're similar to the Ruler in that they thrive and often find themselves in positions of power, unlike the Ruler, they don't always actively seek it out.
Like the Executive, they usually rely on their persuasive strengths rather than an exertion of dominance to gain this higher status. However, they're not afraid to assert authority and power over others if they feel as though they need to.
Social Ascendants are also hard workers. They strive to be the best at what they do. And, because they're unafraid of putting in the work, they usually achieve the goals they set for themselves.
