Things they're good at

Enthusiasts are independent, curious, and analytical. They are introspective people that naturally try to understand the world around them. Enthusiasts are thinkers, and they often like to read about things that interest them. They like to try things for themselves rather than take someone else's word for it. They are imaginative and they often like to conduct their own experiments in order to find out how something works.

Things they can watch out for

Enthusiasts' aptitude for creative thinking and their desire to work at their own pace, conduct research, and think abstractly can sometimes stifle their ability to lead a team or work within a group people when they have a deadline. Their tendency to favor work that is more scientific or academic can also mean that they sometimes have difficulty following highly systematic or repetitive tasks like data entry or keeping track of small details.
