To feel secure and protected.
Preparing for what can go wrong.
I thrive when I feel safe, secure and have a sense of belonging. I am faithful, loyal, cautious and analytical. I’m a study in contradictions. Although I exude warmth, affection, strength and calm, I often doubt myself and others. I want to connect with people yet I am skeptical of them. I both respect and challenge authority. I can be fearful and insecure – or fearless and confident. I look for what can go wrong then prepare for it. Making decisions can be hard and I often second-guess myself.
Core belief: I must gain protection and security in a dangerous world.
At work: I excel at research and analysis. I anticipate problems and am always prepared for them. I keep the team from derailing and am not afraid to speak up. People look to me in a crisis. Team members may see me as a “negative Nelly.”
