About The Dreamer
Relishing the spontaneity of life
You have a casual approach to life & all that comes with it. Life is to be enjoyed, not managed. As such, you’re more interested in experiences than goals.
You’d rather wear life like a loose garment than get caught up in the details. Life is challenging enough without raising the stakes to unnecessary heights, so you do what you can & leave it at that.
You’re not trying to get it all right. Instead, you relish the spontaneity of your life & all that it offers you.
The Dreamer working remote
In the age of increased uncertainty & isolation, understanding your personality allows you to navigate remote work based on your unique strengths as you face new opportunities & threats.
The Dreamer is the one who’s not concerned with discipline, perfection & accuracy: they live for the music of life.
Without a sense of freedom & joy, music has no vibrancy and life. If every note is played accurately but without emotion, music is just empty pitches. That’s exactly why society needs the Dreamer.
For them, the current moment is the most important one. It is to be enjoyed & also allowed to flow wherever it may go. They follow their own sense of rhythm & let their instincts be their guide.
Life is not to be predicted & controlled, not to be confined by expectations, guidelines, or quantifiable data. It is loose, relaxed & available to newness. The Dreamers know this is where the joy is in life.
When in a well-functioning group:
The Dreamer’s contributions & point of view are valued because they’re unencumbered by performance appraisal or group expectations. They simply want to convey their truth in the moment.
Having someone (like them) who is more concerned with being true to their inner voice than conforming to some outside expectation is essential to the growth of the group. Others may be inspired to dream themselves when they seem someone else doing it.
Without the Dreamer’s voice & example, groups can end up deferring to the lowest common denominator. So, instead of confronting & demanding the best in themselves, they become more focused on completing the task at hand than pushing themselves to something higher.
The path to excellence is rarely a straight line, hence the need & appreciation for the Dreamers. Dream on!
When out of sync with others:
The Dreamer gets absorbed in their own musings & forgets how important their contribution to the group is. Subsequently, others may interpret them as not being invested in the group if the Dreamer doesn’t bring their ideas into the discussion.
If the Dreamer feels like an outsider at some point, they may then accept that role & further indulge in their dreams instead of finding a way to be part of the group. This hampers the efforts of the group on both sides, especially if the Dreamer becomes convinced that others don’t really care what they think—which is not true.
At the same time, the Dreamer has the responsibility to remind others that while diligence is necessary to move things forward, how we move forward is as (if not more) important than the movement itself. So when the Dreamer find ways to share their point of view, they demonstrate that it is possible to be both an individual & part of something larger. All benefit from that.
