We have named personality type One The Reformer because Ones have a “sense of mission” that leads them to want to improve the world in various ways, using whatever degree of influence they have. They strive to overcome adversity—particularly moral adversity—so that the human spirit can shine through and make a difference. They strive after “higher values,” even at the cost of great personal sacrifice.

I can sense the emotions of those around me. I can feel what they are feeling as though their feelings are my own. Intuitively, I am able to see the world through their eyes and share their perspective. Because I am observant of how others are feeling, you are likely to intuit what is about to happen before it becomes common knowledge. Although your intuitions may at times seem like nothing more than “hunches,” take conscious note of them. They may turn out to be valuable assets.

Develop ways to track the progress of my learning. If there are distinct levels or stages of learning within a discipline or skill, take a moment to celebrate my progress from one level to the next. If no such levels exist, create them for myself (e.g., reading five books on the subject or making three presentations on the subject).
Where can I use my passion for learning to add value to my own and others’ lives?
