Innovators love generating ideas and solving problems in new ways. They like thinking about issues in new ways, creating something novel, and finding unexpected connections. Innovators are also enthusiastic and extroverted, and love working with others. Their aptitude for formulating visions and showing enthusiasm makes them inspirational - they motivate others and contribute to a good working atmosphere. Detail and “the small print” are usually not what makes innovators tick; they prefer working with the conceptual questions. Too strict objectives can make them demotivated - they crave space to experiment and try things out.
