Myers-Briggs Personality Type: INTJ
(1% of population)
Known as the "mastermind", the "scientist", or the "free-thinker",
INTJs are pragmatic strategists, planners, and organizers. They thrive
on strategic analysis directed toward useful applications. Highly observant,
insightful, and non-linear, INTJs quickly absorb and synthesize large amounts
of information and generate new ideas and possibilities. Their primary
interest, however, is not in simply understanding concepts but in applying
them and taking action. INTJs are natural brain-stormers and very open-minded,
so if Plan A isn't working, they will readily embrace contingency plans.
Though natural leaders who confidently take-charge, INTJs are reserved
and prefer to work in the background.
In his free time, Ron enjoys
swimming, soccer, reading, and playing with his family.
Ron has become an invaluable business partner and trusted friend. His ability to clearly, concisely and eloquently articulate systems-based social change efforts is a true gift. Brainstorming with Ron is particularly fun because of his ability to hone in on weaknesses or barriers from the 30,000 foot view as well as ground zero. His patience for process is also quite commendable. It is rare to find someone with such emotional and cognitive depth, breadth and balance. It's been a real pleasure collaborating with him on our projects. I'm already looking forward to more fun on future efforts!
