Scientific-research (scientist) orientation

Scientific-research orientation is defined by the following attributes: logic, intuition, and democracy. This orientation is most effective in research activities.

Scientists are intuitive-logical and logical-intuitive types, whose mission is to scientifically - both theoretically and experimentally - study the surrounding world by objective, reproducible methods.

Heavy scientists (sociotypes Searcher and Analyst) are the best researchers for fundamental scientific problems. Fundamental scientific developments, as you know, do not give a quick financial return. Their main cognitive stimulus is their own curiosity.

Light scientists (sociotypes Critic and Entrepreneur) are applied scientists. Applied science can pay for itself. They use scientific discoveries and inventions for profitable incentives. They perform better when allowed to employ flexible approaches that are common for solving short-term tasks.

You will notice scientists by their desire to engage with the unknown and the unusual. They are characterized by curiosity, the desire to reveal secrets of the universe and express them in a scientific language. In their work, they constantly experiment in lieu of using proven, well-developed methods.

Scientists are distinguished by their everyday unfitness, ignoring everyday, or social in a narrow sense of the word, side of life. A real scientist can enthusiastically argue about problems in their field of knowledge, meanwhile forgetting to eat and drink.

Scientific discussions are always democratic and open. Representatives of this orientation do not respect hierarchy, regalia, authority. The level of intelligence is the criterion they use when they evaluate a person.
