Type 3 is known as The Achiever, The Performer, or The Role Model with a “hustle harder” motto who’s core motive is to be desired and seen as successful.
Type 5 is known as The Thinker, The Expert, or The Observer with “I don’t need much, but I need my space” energy and a core driver to be capable, competent and self-sufficient.
The confusion between the them is typically for two reasons: They both rely on thinking but for different reasons and they are both a part of the Competency Triad (along with Type 1) where there’s a value on competency and problem solving - “show me the data, don’t give me the drama.”
There’s also several key differences that can help you gain additional clues along your typing journey. In the mini-training replay from YouTube, you’ll learn about 8 them covering:
- The drive behind their desire for competency
- How they experience and present feelings
- Being in social situations
- Taking action and getting things done
- What they’re hiding
- What stresses them
- Core coping strategy
- What burn out looks like
