Octagons are people driven and fear of loss dominant.

 

They are good employees for work that requires networking, building relationships, caring for people, social service, healing, intuition, creativity, performance, or presenting.

 

They are not as good in positions where discipline, solitary hours, repetition, conformation, or rule following are needed. They need a place they can be creative and social.

Careers for OCTAGONS

 

They are happiest in a career where they can shine, be the center of attention, have lots of fans or friends (since they highly value people, relationships and connections) and use their gifts of influence and networking. 

 

They have strong opinions about the right way to do things, hence they do best when they have the autonomy to do things their way.  They would rather be the leader than a follower - and can have a hard time taking orders from others. They are often thought leaders, authors, speakers, and performers. They have very good intuition and can read people and situations very well. This can be useful in consulting, counseling or any other career that involve giving advice. 

The recommended careers are ones that we believe would make Octagons the most happy and fulfilled.
